Contrary to popular belief, sales and the traditional sales force has not been replaced by technology. In fact, selling has now become empowered, far more sophisticated and strategic. 

Technology is not the enemy, it's the enabler. Chatbots, RPA, big data, analytics and more, have freed up the salesforce from manual tasks, providing powerful customer insights, and helping shape the sales strategy.

Online has created new channels and opportunities which are supplementary, not substitutes. No doubt that the role of the sales person has been disrupted, but the opportunity now exists to learn new skills and apply them to exceed targets.
