Table 21.1: Sales-Force Structures Territorial: Each sales representative is assigned an exclusive territory. This sales structure results in a clear definition of responsibilities. It increases the reps incentive to cultivate local business and personal ties. Travel expenses are relatively low because each rep travels within a small area. Territory size: Territories can be designed to provide equal sales potential
or equal workload. Territories of equal potential provide each rep with the same income opportunities and provide the company with a means to evaluate performance. Territories can also be designed to equalize the sales workload so that each rep can cover the territory adequately. Territory shape: Territories are formed by combining smaller units, such as counties or states, until they add up to a territory of a given potential or workload. Companies can use computer programs to design territories that optimize such criteria as compactness, equalization of workload or sales potential, and minimal travel time.
