AMS Testimonials

Marketing Leader, Facility Solutions

“I recently received confirmation that our membership in HIDA and our participation with the AMS Certification program was the right decision to make. A sales professional with over 20 years of experience calling on the Healthcare customer expressed that he 'has not been this energized to engage his Healthcare customers in a very long time.' Those sales professionals who believe in constant learning, like this sales pro, will benefit the most and be that much more valuable to their companies.”

The value offered to us from HIDA allows each of our team members to become the 'trusted advisor' our customers are looking for."

“Thermo Fisher Scientific has been extremely pleased with the value we have found in our participation in HIDA and our membership in the AMS Sales Training Program. Not only does it supply great fundamental background knowledge for the on-boarding of our new hires, but it also provides up-to-date and relevant information about what is happening in healthcare, which greatly assists in the development of our entire sales team. Additionally, the follow up and service provided by the staff at AMS is second to none and makes working with them effortless!”

I have concrete tips and feel more inspired which rarely happens after sales training seminars.”
