New Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Solution Provides Sales Teams with Actionable Insight into Revenue Growth Opportunities.
Austin, Texas – February 22, 2012 – Today, Zilliant unveiled its new SalesMax SaaS solution that gives sales forces visibility into previously hidden revenue growth and retention opportunities. This new hosted analytical service promises to transform how B2B companies target and pursue top-line growth by providing predictive guidance directly to a sales rep. Extensive in-market testing of SalesMax consistently revealed opportunities worth 8-12% in additional revenue.
“We’ve raised the bar again on best-in-class B2B selling practices. By showing the sales force which customers represent their best sales opportunities, we are enabling a completely new approach to organic growth,” said Greg Peters, CEO of Zilliant. “SalesMax continues Zilliant’s tradition of providing innovative predictive applications that harness big data to help companies inform sales decisions and improve P&L results.”
Using Zilliant’s proprietary Purchase Pattern ProfilingTM science, SalesMax automatically analyzes every account in a company’s book of business to quantify and prioritize cross-sell and retention opportunities. The output is a prioritized list of account leads revealing:
- Accounts that have the most untapped potential
- Specific product lines that under-penetrated accounts should be buying
- Accounts where significant wallet-share is being lost
- Customers that are showing early signs of defection
“At Cooper Industries, our sales team is managing over 10,000 opportunities every month. It’s challenging to keep track of each customer manually — even with some of the best analysts and tools in the industry,” said Greg Preuer, director at Cooper Industries. “With SalesMax, our team has gained visibility into opportunities worth over $25 million that we just couldn’t see before. It’s given our team the insight to have targeted customer dialogs so we can sell a stronger mix of products and know when we’re losing wallet-share so we can change the momentum before it’s too late.”
“Many B2B companies have a finite number of customers in the markets they serve. To drive profitable growth, they need to maximize the relationship with each customer and ensure they retain them over time,” said Rafe VanDenBerg, general manager of Sales Effectiveness Solutions at Zilliant. “SalesMax is the only solution on the market today specifically designed to address the unique challenges of driving organic growth and retention in a B2B environment.”
