GERMAN EXCELLENCE AWARD 2024 - AWARD FOR DIGITAL INNOVATIONS GOES TO USC

The German Institute for Service Quality and DUP UNTERNEHMER magazine have honoured the United Sales Company with the German Excellence Award 2024. Under the motto “Digital, innovative, creative”, the award honours companies that stand for outstanding digital solutions and services and provide new impetus in the economy. We would like to thank the high-calibre jury and award patron Brigitte Zypries (former Federal Minister of Economics) for this recognition and are very delighted.

WE SUPPORT THE CHARITY PROJECT OF "TEAM RYNKEBY - HIGH C"

INT We support - Gold

“Team Rynkeby – hohes C” is a European charity cycling team that undertakes an annual bike ride to Paris to raise money for seriously ill children and their families. Founded in 2002, today 2,400 enthusiastic cyclists from eight countries are already pedalling for a good cause. The sponsorship money collected by “Team Rynkeby – hohes C” benefits the German Children’s Cancer Aid.

“We decided to work with Andreas Mehler because we were convinced by the proposed structural approach.

Following our own successful pilot projects, we hope that Andreas Mehler will be able to build on this and develop the success of our brand in the food retail sector.”

“In a declining and highly competitive market environment such as mineral water, effectiveness and efficiency in the sales area are crucial for success. We therefore ‘treated’ ourselves to Andreas Mehler with all his experience and expertise for the process of comprehensive sales force area optimisation, including the emplacement of a new sales force manager – and benefited greatly from it! From day one, he was able to communicate with everyone involved on an equal footing. He very quickly grasped the status and individual needs of our medium-sized organisation and pointed out numerous optimisation approaches. He then supported their rapid implementation with both sensitivity and drive, including concrete best practices time and again. We didn’t need ‘rocket science’, but pragmatic, implementable impulses and approaches to successfully develop our sales organisation. This is exactly what Andreas Mehler delivered – which is why I am extremely confident that we will be able to reap the rewards of this valuable advice in the short and long term. I am looking forward to this – as well as to his continued support of our performance tracking process.”

“As a young company from Austria, it would have been impossible for us to enter the German food trade with our own personnel resources. Working with Mr Mehler was therefore the optimal way to take our first steps into this large and diverse market. Thanks to his efficient, pragmatic way of working and good contacts in the entire trade, we were able to sound out our potential in the German market within a short period of time and fix first actions and listings faster than expected.

We can only warmly recommend working with Mr. Mehler to any company that is considering taking the step into the German market and/or does not want to set up its own sales organisation.”

“2020 was a year of change for us in the sales organization. After a test phase, our sales force has been working with a CRM tool and a new customer structure since July 2020 in a much more targeted and efficient way. And what’s most important to me: the team is motivated again and has fun on the job. 

Andreas Mehler has really played a key role here and has accompanied us on this journey from the very beginning. With his expertise and experience, we were able to work out a suitable tool and an optimized customer structure after determining the location, defining the goal – what should our sales force do in the future. I was positively surprised that we were able to visit 500 more customers with the same number of employees. 

In addition to the professional side, it was also a good fit on a personal level. Andreas Mehler integrated himself very quickly and felt like he was part of the organization during the whole time and was not seen as a consultant. I think that describes Andreas Mehler as a person very well.”

“We are delighted to have found in United Sales Company a partner who is at home in the fresh food and delicatessen sector, who can fall back on years of experience and who enjoys the necessary acceptance of the trade. Our extensive expertise ensures that with United Sales Company and Mr. Andreas Mehler we have found a reliable partner with whom we can realise our ambitious plans in the food retail and cash & carry sectors. Our common goal is to grow over the next few years and to continue the success story of both companies.”

“As a young, dynamic start-up company, it was important for Pino’s, after its first successes in Austria, to find a strong partner who could support us in evaluating and increasing our potential in the German market.

In Andreas Mehler, we have found exactly the right sales partner who fits our dynamic and pragmatic corporate culture and can contribute enormous experience of the German retail landscape as well as implementation power.”

“I value Andreas Mehler as a strategically and operationally strong partner. Andreas Mehler analyzes causes and develops tailor-made solutions. Thanks to his appreciative manner, he quickly develops a good connection with the customer team across hierarchical levels. Operationally, Andreas Mehler keeps an eye on the key objectives and does not allow himself to be distracted by resistance.

Following structural changes in sales, Andreas Mehler made a significant contribution to building a focused, powerful sales team. The project identified opportunities in the area of distribution and built up a national field team. Together with the team, Andreas Mehler implemented the relaunch of the Power System brand with changes to the product range in the retail sector.”

“From day one, our partnership with Andreas Mehler was based not only on his expertise of the German FMCG market and his brand portfolio, but above all on shared values such as commitment, trust, responsiveness and ambition to meet the bold challenge that our company had set itself. Andreas Mehler was able to accompany and guide us in all the preparatory phases of the project, both in terms of trade marketing and certain elements of commercial policy and sales management (back office). This makes Andreas Mehler a reliable partner and ambassador for the successful launch of our Marcel Senchou products!”

“Mr. Andreas Mehler supported us in the analysis of our market conditions in our own Schlemmermeyer stores with the aim of optimizing product ranges and structures and positioning the Schlemmermeyer brand better on the market again. Due to his excellent market knowledge, combined with his high strategic know-how, Mr. Andreas Mehler was able to optimally advise and support the management in the preparation of a national roll-out of the conversion of the store processes and procedures. We also appreciated his way of communicating and his strong will to achieve our common goal.”

“In our sales organization, and particularly in the field force, 2016 was characterized by a comprehensive change process with many substantive and emotional challenges. Andreas Mehler supported us in the management of the Field Force on an interim basis for a longer period in 2016. This resulted in the following personal assessment: When he comes into the organization, his positive impact is felt within a few days. Based on his extensive experience with major sales change processes, he is able to quickly analyze the current situation and define meaningful steps. He quickly and straightforwardly finds an efficient and subsequently successful way of working together with the existing field management, both in terms of content and personally. He works in a very structured, pragmatic and focused manner. He develops conceptual accents for the medium to long-term perspective after only a few weeks. Throughout the sales organization and beyond, he quickly establishes a good reputation and is a recognized discussion partner. In the area of field force management that I can assess, I can unreservedly recommend an interim collaboration with Andreas Mehler.”

“frifrench GmbH, based in Rämsen, in the beautiful Appenzeller Land, has set itself the goal of establishing its 100% fresh salad dressings on the German market. For this project, we have directly relied on the services of Andreas Mehler in the field and key account support by his partner company, United Sales Company GmbH, and on the support of Andreas Mehler in the consulting and development of the new business area. Our decision to go this way was characterized by the long preliminary talks, the good analytical expertise and the extremely good market knowledge of Andreas Mehler. We wanted several people with his attitudes and commitment in sales and are glad to have him on board.“
