While specific company names are not disclosed, many businesses across various industries have successfully implemented ABC analysis in their sales strategies. For instance, retail companies often use this method to categorize their inventory based on value and sales frequency, allowing them to focus their efforts on high-value products. Similarly, manufacturing firms may use ABC analysis to identify and prioritize customers who bring the most revenue. It's a common practice in supply chain management and customer segmentation.

Some alternative sales control techniques that can be used in place of the ABC analysis include the XYZ analysis, the FSN analysis (Fast, Slow moving and Non-moving), the VED analysis (Vital, Essential, Desirable), and the SDE analysis (Scarce, Difficult, Easy). These techniques also help in inventory management and can be used depending on the specific needs and context of the business.

Global companies like Apple and Google can apply the ABC analysis in their sales control technique by identifying and categorizing their customer groups based on the revenue they generate. They can classify transactions under group A which are typically low in volume but high in value. These could be premium products or services that generate significant profit margins. On the other hand, transactions under group C are high in volume but create little value. These could be lower-cost products or services that sell in large quantities but yield smaller profit margins. By understanding these categories, companies can develop targeted strategies to maximize revenue and profitability.
