Program Overview

You have probably heard it before: 80% of your business comes from 20% of your customers.

These key accounts often comprise most of a company’s total revenue. While the breakdown may differ from company to company, this Pareto principle generally holds true. Some customer accounts are simply more valuable than others. And losing one of those critical accounts could have dire consequences for your business’s bottom line and long-term viability.

Because these customers represent such a significant portion of your business, it makes sense that you should invest in their long-term satisfaction and success with your company.

The ultimate purpose of Key Account Management is to develop long-term, mutually beneficial business relationships with specific top customers to meet strategic goals and optimize value in both companies.

The Key Account Manager is considered part of a company’s sales team, but they are not your standard salespeople. Account management is not about volume sales or fast-talking sales tactics but about earning trust and building authentic connections.

It is about relationship management, communication, problem-solving, partnership, and collaboration. This is particularly true In the enterprise market, where 80% of revenues come from 20% of the company’s customers. The account managers managing these important accounts must possess good communication and strategic decision-making skills and strong leadership qualities to build partnerships.
