A large percentage of total revenue typically comes from a small percentage of accounts. These accounts are a great asset for any business. Not only recurring but also up-sell and cross-sell opportunities exist if these accounts are managed well.
Account Managers don’t only sell. A great portion of their time is spent in building long-term, profitable relationships with stakeholders, cross-functional teams and influencers in their target accounts. Insights into these aspects are often lost when an account manager leaves. Companies should invest in collecting information and making it easy to access when reviewing accounts or onboarding a new account manager.
