Curvature is the global leader in IT asset lifecycle and services, focused on simplifying infrastructure operations with engineering expertise and unparalleled vendor coverage, scalable for all types of businesses.

VantagePoint Performance, the only research-led agile sales coaching, consulting and training company in the world, announced today that Curvature selected VantagePoint’s Agile Sales & Coaching System to develop and enhance the skills of their sellers and front-line sales managers.

With a history dating back 30 years and 1.25M devices under support, Curvature transforms how companies manage, maintain and upgrade equipment and support for multi-vendor, multinational networks and data centers. They are committed to helping companies across the globe extend their asset lifecycle, decrease capital expenditures and free IT teams from the burden of daily support tasks and costly manufacturer constraints.

“Curvature is a partner to more than 15,000 organizations globally. Our mission is to give them the flexibility they deserve so that they can focus on what really matters—growth and digital transformation.” Said Rodolfo Piedra, VP and General Manager, Americas. “We operate in a highly competitive market and we felt that VantagePoint’s modern approach to selling and coaching—centered around recognizing the buying situation—made the most sense for our organization.”

When a multi-year study at the Florida State University Sales Institute set out to answer the question, “What is the best sales methodology?”, they made a stunning discovery: no sales methodology works best. Regardless of company size, industry, geography or any other factor, a single sales methodology consistently led to lower performance and failed the reps who used it in roughly 3 out of 4 selling situations. VantagePoint’s Agile Sales & Coaching System was created to solve this problem. It allows organizations to become agile – easily able to understand each buying situation and quickly apply the sales strategy proven to win most often in each situation.

“We are grateful to add Curvature, a global innovator in IT solutions for world-class organizations, to our list of wonderful customers. We look forward to working with the Curvature team to provide sales agility, situational insight and training for their team of sellers and sales managers.” said Joe Terry, CEO of VantagePoint. “By partnering with VantagePoint, Curvature will learn situational fluency—the ability to recognize unique buying situations and run the best sales play for each situation. This will help them maximize the buyer experience, move buyers through the funnel more effectively and ultimately optimize the performance of their sales organization.”

VantagePoint’s revolutionary Agile Sales & Coaching System leverages a simple approach:
(1) Situational Intelligence Backed by Buying Situation Science
(2) Sales Play and Playbook Development
(3) Training, Reinforcement and Measurement
(4) Sales Management and Coaching Practices
