Our global and innovative ‘Territory Runner’ territory planning and management software coupled with ‘Territory Design, Location Planning and Customer Intelligence’ services increase sales and profitability and are of specific benefit to any business that is expanding, going through transformation or considering change. We have been doing this for over 20 years.
By fully understanding your business and needs, we identify, integrate and enhance the right data to uncover the data patterns and insights having the greatest impact on sales productivity. We then deliver this actionable intelligence through innovative database and mapping solutions in such a way as to make a tangible and positive difference to your business.
Importantly our work also ensures alignment across customer profiles and market potential, visit time, team capability and capacity, product focus, sales plans, marketing and corporate goals.
Our solutions can be phased to suit your budget and timescale and consider balancing the ‘cost-to-serve’ your customers relative to their revenue potential and retention. We can also undertake multiple scenarios for you to evaluate risk vs. ROI.

Tech4T – “At our core is the ability to derive and combine great insight with technology, bringing clarity to assess, engage and challenge before delivering a ‘Territory Intelligence’ solution that provides real value for our clients at the right price. We identify where change would bring significant savings, competitive advantage or revenue gain, whilst identifying and minimising any areas of risk.”
“Tech4T provided us with the expertise and software to visualise our existing territory which could be sliced and diced in a number of ways. This gave us a level of analysis and insight we have never had before.
Tech4T then worked with us to further understand our needs and aspirations, and came back to us with a proposed new territory structure, that was data driven, customer focused and in line with our business aims.
The team have been a pleasure to work with, they are extremely proficient, helpful and responsive. They worked tirelessly to understand our business and ensure that the proposed new model worked for us.” – Swagelok, Manchester.
