The Role

You will report to the Regional Sales Manager and partner extensively with Account Managers. Our model is strongly team-oriented, and you also will interact with Client Services and other internal subject matter experts.

You'll develop and execute strategies with 30% focus on growing existing business and 70% on identifying and signing new business. For the most part you'll target large companies, offering broad, comprehensive solutions. You may close deals as small as $250,000 although your focus will be on opportunities that start at $500,000. As a veteran sales professional, you know that a sales cycle may last 6 to 12 months and, in our model, you will be the point-person throughout the sales cycle through contract execution.

More specifically, your activities will include:
  • Managing existing account base, prospecting and developing business, responding to RFPs (leveraging our RFP team), and developing proposals for presentation to customer.
  • Coordinating account resources with representatives from marketing, pre-sales, information technology, development, and customer services.
  • Focusing on new business development by signing new accounts.

Why WorkflowOne

Solutions at the speed of business -- you know how fast this market is changing, and WorkflowOne is at the forefront of those changes. For example, we have developed an innovative technology portal to streamline communication and enhance collaboration with clients, suppliers, colleagues and others. Our technology partners include industry leaders such as Xerox, Kodak, Lexmark, Microsoft, Adobe, and SAP. In addition, you'll be able to offer:
  • Nationwide infrastructure and support for fulfillment and delivery,
  • WorkflowOne's strong reputation and brand recognition across multiple industries,
  • And more.
Multiple paths to success -- you've already seen the diversity of industries we're currently serving, and you'll help us expand that footprint. In addition, you'll have multiple entry points into client companies, representing a variety of opportunities to land a new account or expand an existing one. We work with marketing, purchasing, HR, sales, manufacturing, operations, distribution, and more. And if you have a knack for developing C-level contacts, we definitely want to talk to you!

Irresistible value proposition -- we can solve any print, print-related and promotional marketing need, regardless of size. With our unique combination of in-house capabilities and outsourcing through our wide network of suppliers, we can source, bid and buy a complete range of products from traditional offset printing to web to print digital applications, including labels and integrated cards, branded clothing, full mail services, and web solutions. We can fulfill all of your clients' print related needs and save them time and money -- up to 20% of the total print spend.

Don't just take our word for it -- we're not the only ones who think WorkflowOne is great. We consistently deliver industry-leading customer satisfaction and have earned scores of awards from clients for outstanding service. In addition, just to name a few accolades, we ranked:
  • #1 among the Top 100 Distributors by Print Professional magazine each year since 2006,
  • #11 in Printing Impressions magazine's list of Top 400 printers, and
  • #15 in the Top 40 distributors of promotional products by the Advertising Specialty Institute.
Excellent compensation -- in addition to a competitive salary plus commission structure, we offer a comprehensive benefits package.

Keys to Success

It's worth repeating: we use a team-oriented model and collaboration is critical, not only with your internal contacts but also with customers -- you'll need to position yourself and your team as the consulting subject matter experts who will continue to help clients solve their print and promotional marketing challenges for years to come. Of course, the team model benefits you: with support in pre and post-implementation, operations, production, IT and even bid response. You'll have more flexibility to focus on what you do best: finding new business and selling. In addition, you'll need to be able to thrive in a fast-paced environment and show initiative, flexibility, and the desire to continuously improve.
