I bet that if you surveyed your entire sales team right now, almost every single one of them will own, or have access to, a smartphone or a tablet – or both. I also bet that many of them still fall into the trap of delivering their sales pitch with a presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint, SlideShare or Prezi from their trusty old laptop complemented with the obligatory hard copies of marketing collateral.
Goodbye boring presentation pitch, hello interactive discovery experience
If this seems familiar, then the following video might make you feel a little uncomfortable. Why? Because tech savvy Xerox channel partners such as Rennes based Xerox Concessionaire, AJP are embracing technology to help them deliver a superior customer experience.
By equipping their sales teams with the innovative Showpad app and connecting to the Xerox Smart Centre, they have turned those smartphones and tablets into a business winning competitive advantage – and delighting their clients in the process.

We are AJP based in Rennes France. This is the story of why we decided to use the Xerox Showpad system to help improve our digital strategy
Philippe Angeli (PA)
AJP’s main line of business is, of course, office equipment, but in addition, we also deal in office supplies and the sale of consumables, as well as our IT business, which has really developed over the last 4-5 years within AJP. So, most of the time, our presentations were done using brochures it was too general and our clients did not find those brochures very useful.
Jean-Luc Boscher (JB)
Today, thanks to the Showpad, we can access important content immediately.
Antoine Le Sann (ALS)
The Showpad application has the advantage of bringing together in one application the best content on the Xerox Smart Centre and gives me the ability to select the content which is specific to my subsidiary. It’s extremely easy to download content.
My Channel has the content which I promote to my sales teams, and I can manage it all easily via Dropbox. The “showcase” function is excellent. It allows us to share content instantly with the client, but also to see if the client has looked at this content,
Fabrice Therin (FT)
It was really easy to integrate the Showpad tool into my sales strategy; firstly, because the tool is very well thought-out and is incredibly intuitive to use.
Elvina Fourchon (EF)
It’s good to be able to adapt the dialogue according to the client by illustrating your points with videos.
In terms of content, it’s about having at your fingertips, always in real time, the entire Xerox range, whether that’s products, the range of services, XPPS or partner solutions and the latest updated versions of software.
The clients’ main reaction when I use the Showpad in meetings is that they respond to how interactive the product is and how quickly we can give them a presentation on the subject in question. Using the Showpad has changed clients’ perceptions because it carries a level of professionalism which sets us apart from the competition
I would recommend this tool to our partners for two reasons. Firstly, there are the internal advantages. It allows us to bring together all the sales teams across all the levels, the management, the sales managers, the sales teams, the support sales teams, and, externally, it projects a really good image to our clients.
The next steps with Showpad are to continue to enhance our own subsidiary’s content and to quickly set out the CRM tool in order to have optimum flexibility with clients.
