How to Drive Sales through Customer Relationships

Panasonic Solutions for Business Blog

We sat down with Oliver Bodden, Panasonic’s new SIP and Applications Product Manager to discuss his thoughts on UC Mobility, customer relationships and where he sees the industry heading.


Q. Can you tell us about your previous experience working with Panasonic as both a UC Technical Field Manager and in Panama?

A: I started working with Panasonic in 2011 as a sales engineer and moved up to a supervisor. Although I was working in Panama, I covered well over 25 countries in the Americas and the Caribbean. Half of my job was focused on training, getting the dealers up to speed on our product line-up from a features and benefits standpoint and letting our customers know everything that Panasonic has to offer – that was the primary goal.

As part of that training role, we would sit down with customers asking questions to see how we can solve their problems with our products. The other half of the job was technical training. I sat down with all the technicians and taught them how to install the systems. I also worked in the marketing department where we would implement product strategy and launches based on what each country wants to do.

It was a very diverse and hybrid role.

The Millennial Wave and What it Means for the Managed Print Services Industry

The Following Appears on by Alan Leal – I’m at a red light. Instinctively, I take a quick glance at my phone and press the home button (it’s almost primal — I can barely control the urge). So what’s behind this urge? Simple. I need to know, at all times, if there’s someone trying to reach me, or if there’s been a huge signing by the New York Yankees that could change the face of our franchise (you know being a diehard Yankees fan, and all).
Of course, after checking my phone for those couple of seconds, a sense of satisfaction takes over. It’s a very subtle, yet palpable feeling.
This sense of satisfaction is derived from knowing that I’m on top of everything, (communication-wise at least). You may call me an information-hungry millennial, but my point here isn’t so much that I’m addicted to my phone. It’s something even more basic, and it’s at the core of everything I do in this digitally driven society.
It’s about my expectations for this piece of technology,..
