Sparta was founded to spread innovative ideas that serve to support brokers. The more ideas shared, the greater positive impact upon the businesses we serve. Our greatest hope is that some of the ideas will provide sparks of inspiration to help brokers grow their business, win more customers and keep them longer.

Choice often comes down to price, making products a ‘commodity’ with price as the main differentiator. Sparta adds more value to broker partnerships than competitive pricing (which we see as a given).

We never lose sight of the importance of supporting brokers, helping them to earn the trust and loyalty of their customers by:

 

  • Articulating their value
  • Moving the decision away from price
  • Encouraging connected sales
  • Developing greater levels of customer focus and centricity
  • Building customer trust, loyalty and long-term retention
