What is 4 Zones™ Customer Engagement?

The 4 Zones™ of Customer Engagement is a practical, coachable, and repeatable framework training delivered by Clarity that combines the setting of everyday language and industry-leading best practices. It is a tailored approach that has already been rolled out to commercial Life Sciences and Medical Devices organisations in over 30 countries worldwide. It encompasses the best practices from both within a company and across the industry, which will help organise your company to raise everyone’s ability for more effective solution for customer engagement. It also allows companies to transition from tactical selling to strategic account management, giving a scalable, professional B2B account approach while enabling companies to continue driving short-term revenue goals. Additionally, account managers gain the common language they need to work in a matrix team and the framework they require to develop teams and the organisation with a mutual engagement process to get behind.

As part of getting account teams to the next level of B2B customer relationships, the 4 Zones™ experience will establish an account management mindset and framework of best practices that enable teams to get into alignment faster with customer stakeholders and coordinate more effectively with other customer-facing staff.

Users of the 4 Zones™ will be able to approach complex healthcare environments with more confidence and purpose by using the 4 Zones™ processes to understand at a deeper level what’s going on in their customer’s environment and how to shape meaningful conversations around business issues and patient-centric priorities while creating an optimal environment for brand performance.
