Sales & Business Enablement
As a leader in sales enablement and business relevancy services across all important technologies and digitalization solutions, Fast Lane is especially qualified to develop, customize and deliver state-of-the-art business transformation solutions and sales courses.
Due to a rapid convergence of business and technology, IT companies, system integrators and IT consulting firms are facing major challenges caused by a fundamental change of customer behavior. IT no longer only supports the infrastructure, but is deploying and supporting the strategic platform for any organization’s development. Infrastructure and applications must be aligned with corporate strategies in order to contribute significant value. Beyond plain technical features, the functionality and value of complex IT solutions must be “translated“ into business terms.
One of the first challenges when taking new products and solutions to market is ensuring the effected sales and marketing teams understand the technology and more importantly the business value derived from the technology. In support of our vendor partners, their partners and other leading companies, Fast Lane develops programs to drive the sales of these new advanced technologies and solutions. As always, the focus is on business value, ROI and total cost of ownership (TCO) and when it makes sense for companies to adopt these technologies.
We offer various knowledge delivery formats designed to help our partners leverage education as a tool to help prospective customers understand the value and benefits of new and emerging technologies and how to use these technologies to build solutions supporting desired business outcomes.
Webinar SeriesWebinars are typically less than 2 hours and are designed to introduce important technical topics and products and stress their importance and potential impact to the industry or business. View all of our upcoming webinars
Seminar as a ServiceOur Seminar as a Service™ is a turn-key solution supporting the education of prospective purchasers on the advantages and benefits of specific advanced technologies and solutions. Seminars delivered either via Instructor-led in classroom or WebEx typically last 2 days or less and usually include demonstration labs or exercises. They provide business and technology leaders with comparative knowledge allowing for informed decisions regarding the viability of a particular technology for their company.
Test DrivesA Test Drive is a deep technical dive allowing technical professionals to spend time with an experienced instructor or consultant in a learning environment. Test Drives have hands-on labs that serve to not only reinforce the topics covered but often work as a "sand box" where individuals can experiment and test new products and solutions in real world scenarios.
Managed Enablement™ Services
Fast Lane is a leader in sales enablement and business relevancy services across all IT architectures. Our Managed Enablement™ services accelerate business outcomes by helping vendors and system integrators bring complex solutions to market, jump starting sales and deployment. These services are augmented by a powerful enablement framework, helping vendors and system integrators to build a practice around these solutions.
Awareness and Customer Qualification Services
This service addresses relevant use cases of a particular solution, and is customizable to meet your particular vertical targets and go-to-market approach. Fast Lane expert facilitators work with you to tailor the message, and then deliver the webinar authoritatively, representing your organization.

Our solution experts bring your solution message to your customers through a roadshow program, typically 1 day in length. The roadshow deliveries are tailored to your customers business and technical decision-makers, focusing on connecting your solutions capabilities to common customer care-abouts and desired business outcomes. The goal is to educate multiple stakeholders and influencers at your customers about the possibilities, creating internal excitement and dialogue that can lead to furthering the sales cycle.
Demand Generation Services
A Test Drive (or proof of concept event) provides technical decision makers with a deep-dive learning experience that focuses on a specific solution addressing a particular use case. After attending a Test Drive, most if not all of your customer’s questions and concerns will have been answered and your customers will have an appreciation of the operational and business value that can be achieved by implementing the solution.
Customer Engagement Workshop
In case the solution or use case for a particular customer is not that obvious, our Customer Engagement Workshop can be used to map your solution portfolio to your customer’s particular needs, use cases and business realities. The workshop identifies your customer’s current pain points and clearly connects the value the customer is looking to create to the capabilities of your solution portfolio. We help your customers’ various stakeholders align desired business outcomes and demonstrate how your solution will meet their requirements, including ROI and proof of value analysis.
Execution / Deployment Services
This is a special service that is usually consumed after one or more Customer Engagement Workshops in order to develop a prototype of the suggested solution in order to demonstrate functionality and value to your customer.
This service is a special derivative of staff augmentation. It consists of one or more on-site design and deployment workshops including related knowledge transfer and additional mentoring once the workshops have been completed. The purpose of these workshops is to help you deploy solutions with expert assistance in a controlled (mentored) environment thus optimizing your investment in technology, time to deploy and effectiveness of the implementation.
