This application will provide even greater, more solid results for our customers who wish to fully leverage the methodology in their organizations, thus giving them significant ROI.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 15, 2010
CustomerCentric Selling®, a proven methodology for predictably improving revenue growth and sales performance, today announced a new salesforce.com AppExchange application named appropriately, CustomerCentric Selling® for Salesforce. Developed in partnership with PipelineMetrics and built using the Force.com platform, this new integrated application supports and reinforces the CustomerCentric Selling® sales process implementation for optimal adoption and increased results.
This integrated offering is designed to help CustomerCentric Selling® customers who use salesforce.com to more efficiently deploy the messaging and defined process to their sales teams as a ‘native’ application within Salesforce. This application sits as part of each opportunity record, giving the sales rep the ability to invoke a targeted conversation list or sphere of influence, title-based call scripts, success stories, solution development prompters (SDPs), among other additional tools available in the CustomerCentric Selling® sales process arsenal. Salespeople can now use these integrated tools to document opportunity-specific information such as roles of key players, shared goals, current situation and capabilities needed to achieve those goals. Additionally, sales reps can also create champion and key player letters, as well as sales order entries (SOE), all of which makes their jobs easier and more effective in managing and reporting their opportunities.
Abhijit Shome, Founder of PipelineMetrics, states, “For sales teams everywhere, the integration of this application with their current Salesforce platform facilitates a common language throughout the organization and enforces increased adoption of the CustomerCentric Selling® sales process, resulting in higher success rates which translates into significantly higher revenue generation.”
For sales management, the benefit of having this integrated application provides detailed insight into tracking the progress of each of their salespeople and includes a complete view of each opportunity without having to seek out SDPs in shared folders or sifting through champion letters in emails. This increased visibility helps sales management realize gaps in each opportunity from a process usage perspective, which supports higher forecast accuracy and revenue achievement. Even for marketing teams, the simplicity of the platform from which to build and deploy messaging to the entire sales team is an infinite asset in eliminating the need for PowerPoint, endless Word documents, shared folders and archived intranets, ultimately allowing marketing to be better aligned with sales.
Gary Walker, Co-founder of CustomerCentric Selling®, states, “CustomerCentric Selling® for Salesforce presents the perfect fit in filling the technology need of our clientele around the globe who seek to support the implementation of their defined process into every aspect of their sales culture. This application will provide even greater, more solid results for our customers who wish to fully leverage the methodology in their organizations, thus giving them significant ROI.”
