AlphaGraphics Empowers Franchise Owners with Print Speak Acquisition and New Proprietary Technology
Global leader in printing and marketing adds top business intelligence software and develops agLearn and agXsell tools to support franchise training and sales
January 23, 2020 // Franchising.com // DENVER - AlphaGraphics, a leading provider of printing and marketing solutions, has announced the development of two new proprietary technologies offering ongoing sales training and hundreds of hours of educational courses for franchise owners. The new business tools, agLearn and agXsell, follow AlphaGraphics' acquisition of business intelligence software Print Speak in 2019.
Print Speak, an industry-leading provider of business intelligence, contact relationship management and data aggregation designed to generate more leads and grow sales, provides an array of systems and business tools to support AlphaGraphics' growth initiatives for the future.
"The acquisition of Print Speak was a major step forward in our mission to provide our franchise owners with tools for success," said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development at AlphaGraphics. "The development of agLearn and agXsell for franchise centers is another milestone. These new tools fit the learning and development and sales and marketing landscape of a cutting edge franchisor."
AgLearn currently offers more than 600 courses ranging from sales techniques to equipment training to products and services provided by AlphaGraphics centers. The business tool allows franchise owners and managers to assign, monitor and assess training for team members. The implementation of agLearn creates a culture of learning excellence and empowerment for franchise centers across the country.
AgXsell is seamlessly integrated with the powerful applications of Print Speak and assists owners and sales representatives in creating a step-by-step process to make customers aware of available services and help convert leads to customers. This innovative tool is designed to provide long-term printing and marketing solutions for customers by developing customer service representative sales skills.
"Based on our growth in 2019, it's apparent that we are offering what potential franchise owners are looking for," McPherson said. "We're committed to ensuring that our franchise partners have the foundation and tools to build their AlphaGraphics business. Our investment in AgLearn and AgXsell are just the two latest examples of our partnership mentality with our franchise owners."
