Lincoln, MA (PRWEB) September 21, 2005
Kubi Software, Inc., the innovator in business activity management solutions, today announced Kubi Enable 2.5 its new-generation solution that correlates sales activities with outcomes to easily institutionalize best practices and ensure compliance with business policies. By leveraging existing technology investments and unifying front- and back-office sales activities, all within a familiar email experience, Kubi Enable helps to improve sales effectiveness, compliance, and collaboration.
ÂKubi Enable 2.5 represents a new direction for Kubi,Â said Mark Rankovic, CEO of Kubi Software. ÂWeÂve taken lessons learned from our experience in collaborative email and email activity management and applied that knowledge to deliver a software solution that can optimize business activities for improved effectiveness and efficiency. There is a growing chasm between transient business activities and enterprise processes, which for example results in costly sales processes, lengthy sales cycles, and inconsistent compliance with best practices and company policies,Â continued Rankovic. ÂKubi Enable bridges that chasm. ItÂs built for information workers who must quickly find and handle business-critical activities and enables them to easily collaborate with colleagues, connect to enterprise information such as SFA and CRM systems, and access best-practice business processes Â all from their familiar work environment.Â
KubiÂs capabilities to easily institute task management and process controls from a familiar work environment will be leveraged in product development at QD Vision (http://www.qdvision.com), a developer of next-generation flat panel displays. ÂKubi Enable is attractive to us as it provides some structure with just enough task management and process control without requiring people to change the way they work,Â noted Greg Moeller, co-founder and director of business development at QD Vision. ÂWeÂve embedded Kubi in Outlook and quite frankly using Kubi is as simple as a Post-it note while its structure allows everyone to be part of a single Post-it note.Â
Kubi Enable Accelerates Sales Processes
Easily embedded in a variety of applications -- from email to sales force automation to customer support applications Â Kubi Enable 2.5 gives people the freedom to manage business activities from their preferred applications. Therefore, Kubi Enable helps companies accelerate and improve sales processes with intuitive solutions that easily institutionalize best practices and ensure compliance with business policies. By correlating sales activities with outcomes and leveraging existing technology investments, Kubi Enable drives improved sales efficiencies, effectiveness, and profitability.
For example, the ability to coordinate a rapid review of sales and service across corporate sales, legal, finance, and operations impacts deal closure time and close rates. Kubi 2.5 can accelerate the sales-closure process by:
Â ensuring all participants are working with the most recent version of deal-related documents;
Â providing approval workflows during sales activities for quotes/proposals; Kubi Enable 2.5 Announced
Â moving deals into different sales stages and orders/contracts at deal closure;
Â escalating deal awareness to required but often omitted individuals on the basis of deal criteria;
Â giving sales staff the ability to assign and track the progress of actions with specified deadlines for members of their virtual sales teams;
Â synchronizing action due dates with assigneesÂ electronic calendars to ensure timely execution of required duties;
Â enabling participants to effectively participate in distributed sales activities from within their email;
Â integrating with enterprise CRM or SFA systems to drive the sales activity policies;
Â ensuring the resolved sales activity log and related final assets are returned to CRM or SFA systems; and
Â creating an immutable audit trail of all sales activities.
ÂRecent industry research reveals that 58 percent of businesses take more than 6 months to close a deal and that 42 percent of them deliver 3 or more proposals while they are closing it,Â noted Rankovic, Âso few, if any, businesses can remain competitive and profitable at that rate. By giving companies better sales-related activity management capability when they need it and institutionalizing best practices around those activities, the new Kubi Enable improves sales effectiveness. Over time we will broaden these activity management capabilities beyond sales functions to areas such as manufacturing and customer service and support.Â
