I have ever seen and I have seen a lot.”

We’re Less Expensive and More Effective


You’re currently spending:

$6,000 per BDC Rep Per Mo.

Wages, payroll taxes, paid time off, benefits, overhead, management, training, turnover, smoke breaks, bathroom breaks, personal phone calls, chit chat, thinking about what to do next, etc. You’re lucky to get 1/2 a day of actual work done.

You’re currently spending:

$25 - $45 to work each lead

To maximize your contact and appointment set rates, you’ll need to perform at least 10 activities (call, email, text) and over 30 minutes of work. And if this work isn’t performed well, there’s missed-opportunity cost.
