Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 1, 2005
Integrify, a premier enterprise software provider of next-generation request and approval management solutions, is offering a promotional discount of its iApprove OnDemand solution for automating sales and marketing requests and approvals, from now through December 20th. iApprove OnDemand, a web-based business process management tool that significantly reduces set-up time and costs, will be available for $495 per month for 25 users, down from the usual $795 per month fee.
“iApprove increases sales productivity because the sales team can get quotes and close deals in a faster, more timely manner,” said David Willsey, CEO of Integrify. “With the OnDemand solution, our customers get their sales teams automated almost immediately because it’s an on-line solution that requires very little set-up time.”
iApprove provides form creation, routing definition and tracking tools to those responsible for processing requests, minimizing data entry and simplifying requests for approval and fulfillment. For sales and marketing departments, it can be used for new quote approvals, sales support requests, contract reviews, proposal approvals, customer activation, customized product requests, product discount authorization, marketing campaign approval, and program change requests. The solution eliminates problems typically related to labor-intensive processes such as manual paper handling and email requests, and can reduce costs per transaction 60 to 90 percent as opposed to paper-based processes.
HealthStream, Inc., based in Nashville, Tenn., provides Internet-based solutions and services to meet the training and education needs of the healthcare industry. As the company grew at a rapid pace, it was challenged by an increasing need to track the progress of a number of different processes, including first and foremost its pricing request process. Responding to pricing requests in an efficient and timely manner was critical to meeting customers’ needs and to growing HealthStream’s customer base. Formerly, salespeople needed at least two weeks to provide a cost proposal to a potential customer, but since using iApprove OnDemand, that timeframe has been cut to three days.
“We don’t have whole groups of people dedicated to overseeing process management,” said Kevin O’Hara, vice president of HealthStream Direct. “We wanted to start up easily to see if it would work for our employees. We chose iApprove OnDemand because of its flexibility; unlike similar solutions out there, we weren’t confined to pre-built processes designed-in that would be incompatible with our needs.”
The OnDemand solution is a monthly service that offers the full functionality of the software via the Internet without requiring on-site installation and maintenance of the software. Customers can see the benefits to their business almost immediately due to the solution’s easy set-up including unlimited processes that the customer defines, unlike other options on the market that only provide limited, pre-built processes that may not match a company’s needs.
Through the year-end promotion, iApprove OnDemand is available to sales and marketing departments for $495 per 25 users with additional users discounted to $10 per month (down from the normal $20 per additional user). A second option is $495 per month for five concurrent user capacity and $50 per additional concurrent users.
The promotion requires a 12-month service contract, and for under $6,000, companies can realize these benefits of iApprove over the next year:
- No set-up costs and minimal maintenance;
- Up-time guarantee;
- Access from anywhere;
- Reduction of process time and costs;
- Easy definition of specific request and approval processes;
- Centralization of all forms;
- Easily obtain process status updates and audit trails; and
- A central interface for users to access status at every point in the process request.
The OnDemand service allows for an unlimited number of request and approval processes, a secure hosting environment, online management of forms you can access from anywhere, real-time request tracking and approval, password-protected access to templates and complimentary on-line training.
