We get the phone calls every day. I need… and the reseller on the other line rattles off a part or model number of exactly what they want. Day in and day out, I get to hear two ways this phone call can go. The sales person can either simply quote exactly what Mr. Customer wants, and off they go. Happy Customer. Or the salesperson can ask a few questions and spend maybe twenty minutes on the phone or maybe two or three phone calls, later on; a quote comes through. Happy Customer.
