Success For KBBG Partnership With Simon Acres Group

Video training modules covering showroom sales, which were launched last year via a partnership with the Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG) and Simon Acres Group (SAGL), have proved to be a great success with KBBG members.

The training courses are delivered in a video format and covered in clear, digestible modules that can be completed at any time, in the convenience of the learner’s own home. With the current sales boom leading so many independent kitchen and bathroom retailers to recruit additional designers and showroom sales staff, the KBB specific content is ideal for improving experienced sales staff or introducing sales to a new member of the team. The modules are designed to help kitchen and bathroom retailers maintain margins, close more sales and sell more products, and is a valuable addition to the KBBG portfolio of services for members.

Julian Stammers, Director, JS Designs & Interiors, and member of the KBBG, comments: “The Simon Acres Group training content has very smart options on how to close a sale. I’d recommend the online courses to anybody in KBB sales. I’ve watched all of the training videos and I’ve been able to take something from each module. I’m looking forward to seeing more releases from Simon and can highly recommend this training to other members of DER KREIS.”

Simon Acres, Managing Director, SAGL, adds: “We have a wealth of industry-specific sales training material suitable for all KBB retailers, whatever their level of experience. We’ve also expanded our offering to KBBG members to include some of our other KBB services, such as recruitment, media production and KBB secure, which protects customers’ deposits and offers workmanship guarantee to cover installation issues.”

Bill Miller, Managing Director, KBBG, part of DER KREIS, Europe’s leading kitchen and bathroom buying group, concludes: “We encourage all of our members to consider the SAGL training courses in pursuit of taking their business to the next level. The modules are easy to access, affordable and an asset to members of the KBBG.

“Our partnership with SAGL has also expanded with a series of offers on some of the group’s other services now available to our members. This includes recruitment, which is a key area that many KBB retailers need assistance with.”

KBBG members can contact SAGL Services Director Jordan Burns for more information on the offers available on 0203 701 6660.
