Client testimonials

  • Channel Assist’s unique 360° approach to field marketing has proven invaluable to Netgear. The business analytics solution has identified areas of remediation required around accurate stock profiling, and secured recognition from our valued partners. Engagement from the regional sales managers complements the process, as hands-on quality training is tailored to ensure RSPs are empowered and armed with product knowledge to maximise sales opportunity across the range. Channel Assist promotes quality and accuracy in the execution of all solutions provided, and the collaborative approach between client and agency makes for an innovative partnership, with a common goal to achieve optimum market positioning for Netgear.

  • Working with Channel Assist over the last year has made a significant difference to both Dixons' and Panasonic's business. Our collaborative style of working has resulted in significant changes that have driven results. By focusing on the details of stock and sales by store, we have driven sell-out in promoter and POD-covered stores by prioritising stock profiling. This has resulted in the best exit stock we have seen in recent years.

  • A massive thank you to Alain and the Channel Assist team. The team has always exceeded expectations and supported our business and its initiatives with passionate and knowledgeable individuals. Individuals integral to the success of our promotional work – individuals we'd rather refer to as colleagues!

    Adam Stepney, regional manager, Dixons Travel
  • Working with Channel Assist over the last 18 months, before, during and after our launch of LiveSafe as the Dixons official AV attach, has been an absolute roller-coaster! Working collaboratively with Channel Assist, who acts as invaluable extension of the UK sales team, we devised a revolutionary way in which to interact with Dixons, applying a top-down approach. Working in partnership, Dixons, McAfee and Channel Assist mirrored the Dixons' business KPIs, focusing the team on a pure sales-out centric approach rather than the industry standard of training, advocacy and merchandising. Launching a new format team at such a critical time for both businesses was relatively seamless with the team creating immediate impact and driving significant ROI. We are extremely pleased in the performance of this new relationship, at all levels.

  • Sonos and Channel Assist worked in partnership to deliver a unique, creative and highly engaging training event for our peak tactical team. From the beginning, Channel Assist delivered a personalised and professional approach to deploying the sales team. We collaborated in designing a tailored training programme which engaged each member and ensured optimum return. The unique venue, combined with a winning product and array of highly skilled trainers delivered an epic event! Channel Assist shares our passion for training and we are looking forward to delivering further excellence on future campaigns.
