Part VII: Reading Comprehension

Question 158 - 161 refer to following paragraph:

Tamara Elkind / 3:32 P.M.

Thanks for attending the virtual sales meeting earlier this afternoon. Are there any further questions?


Judith Messer / 3:35 P.M.

Georg and I are unclear about how the new sales territory maps affect existing customers. Do the new territories apply only to new customers?


Tamara Elkind / 3:37 P.M.

No, the new territories apply to both new and existing customers.


Judith Messer / 3:38 P.M.

So, does that mean I will no longer get commissions from my Swiss customer, NNC Systems?


Tamara Elkind / 3:39 P.M.

Right. All existing clients in southern Switzerland go to Georg.


Georg Hertz / 3:41 P.M.

But what if I agree to let Judith keep NNC Systems?


Tamara Elkind / 3:42 P.M.

NNC Systems is a big client.


Georg Hertz / 3:44 P.M.

Yes, but I'd rather not interrupt a productive relationship. This one client is not that important to me.


Tamara Elkind / 3:45 P.M.

I don't see it as interrupting, necessarily. However, if you are willing, Georg, I might be able to make an exception if our president approves it.


Judith Messer / 3:47 P.M.

What if I talk to the client?


Tamara Elkind / 3:48 P.M.

I don't think that's appropriate.


Judith Messer / 3:49 P.M.



Georg Hertz / 3:49 P.M.

OK. We'll wait to hear back from you.
