Educational Technology Product Development

Successfully developing technology products will differentiate your company in the markets you serve. The J. L. Hahn Consulting Group's owner Jeffrey Hahn has been a leader in technology product development since 1991. The first to market with nearly every major technology platform over the past 15 years, he has gone from videodisk development in 1990 to revenue generating web sites in the present. Mr. Hahn is able to work closely with customers, turning their needs into easy-to-use, effective technology products.

Textbook Product Development

Developing and launching successful new and revised products is the backbone of any publishing company. As more and more companies try to differentiate their products in the marketplace, it is clear that creating successful inventory has become more complex. In addition, fully staffing a product development department is very difficult and expensive. In today's current environment, many publishing companies do not have the in-house staff in place to successfully develop and launch all books that are under contract. The J. L. Hahn Consulting group will successfully develop textbooks and ancillaries in all disciplines.

Business Development

The education publishing market is becoming more and more competitive. Even though enrollments are increasing, used books and clever customers have made it difficult to reach double-digit growth. Thus, business development has become an important focus of most media companies. There is a need to export and sell content to distance learning companies, for-profit institutions, and corporate training companies. The J. L. Hahn Consulting Group works with its clients to create new business development opportunities, and acts as a liaison between your company and these prospective customers. This is a growing opportunity, and we can help you maximize your top line by facilitating business in this important growth area.

Sales Development and CRM Call Centers

The J. L. Hahn Consulting Group offers its customers numerous sales development and CRM opportunities. Jeffrey Hahn has managed successful sales and CRM teams, and members of his consulting team have years of experience leading successful sales and CRM organizations. The J. L. Hahn Consulting Group will help you manage inside sales organizations, handle online sales of lower-priority titles, and help you with your CRM Call Center for both sales and technology services. If you have seasonal CRM work, we can effectively handle the overflow work, and save you money in the process. Our goal is to save you money while increasing your sales.

Customer training can differentiate you and your products from that of your competitors. For example, every year hundreds of excellent books and websites are ignored by customers, because there is an insufficient amount of product training in the publishing industry. Research has shown that most customers have little understanding of the content of book support websites or new textbooks. J. L. Hahn Consulting will help you train your customers by creating detailed training plans for key products. We can also train internal customers, regarding the roles within your company. And we work closely with school districts to train teachers on how to use technology in the classroom.
