iHance Launches Executive Alert – for the first time giving executives objective data to refine forecasts, understand ROI on online media assets, and rapidly optimize the sales process.
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – May 2, 2006
iHance Inc., a Customer Intelligence Solution provider for sales and marketing professionals, today announced the launch of its Executive Alert product. Executive Alert provides executives with objective data compiled from sales and marketing professionals’ actions and real customer and prospect behavior. Going well beyond subjective CRM data, Executive Alert enables executives to refine forecasts, understand ROI on online media assets, and rapidly optimize the sales process.
“iHance Executive Alert provides a rich set of reports that summarize performance by sales group, account type, product line, sales initiative, and many other dimensions. Because Executive Alert is based on objective, real-world data, the knowledge it provides differs markedly from typically subjective sales force assessments”, said Anders Knox, co-founder and chief operating officer of iHance Inc. “In summary, Executive Alert dramatically increases the accuracy of revenue forecasts and sales force performance measurements”, said Mr. Knox.
iHance Executive Alert is compiled from factual data already resident in the iHance system. The reporting function processes this data and generates user-friendly executive reports. These reports enable executives to:
- Refine forecasts. Gauge the accuracy of the sales pipeline by augmenting sales professionals’ estimates with real-world data.
- Understand ROI on all online media assets. Determine the value to customers and prospects of your online media assets such as marketing collateral relative to the cost of creating these assets. iHance provides objective measurements of collateral usage and effectiveness.
- Maximize touch. Identify leads and accounts that are being neglected, refocus on them, and re-assign them to different sales professionals.
- Rapidly optimize the sales cycle. Identify successful selling efforts in days, not months, and duplicate these efforts across the entire sales force. Do not wait for quarterly revenue numbers to make changes – iHance lets you immediately identify failures and capitalize on successes as they occur.
iHance Executive Alert is an on-demand upgrade that requires no installation work on your part. Furthermore, it is easy to use to encourage widespread adoption and executive decision-making.
