Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
improveit! 360, the nation’s leading business success program for the home improvement industry, is changing the way manufacturers are growing sales and supporting their dealers to increase revenues, reduce costs and adopt newer technologies.
The improveit! 360 total success program provides a revolutionary new method for manufacturers to support, and communicate directly with, their dealers through the impower! Corporate Portal. Manufacturers can easily share virtually anything, from email templates and marketing materials to operational collateral like price books, sales aids and invoice templates, directly into their impower! Corporate Portal. After uploading content, manufacturers can select which dealers should receive the materials, and immediately, across hundreds or thousands of dealers, distribute that information directly into the dealer’s application where they run their business every day. Dealers can immediately access and use these assets without any configuration, directly from their improveit! 360 web-based business management software application. Dealers also receive ongoing education from industry experts on best practices, compliance and other topics related to growing and solving business challenges.
While there are other reporting portal products in the business service market, no other solution seamlessly integrates manufacturers with their dealers and allows them to share data, communications and other assets and gives remodelers the technology, tools, education and support to increase sales and decrease costs. It ends the fragmentation and disconnects within the network and empowers both the manufacturer’s and dealer’s growth.
Manufacturers are adopting the improveit! 360 program because they realize the need to find a new way to grow revenues by improving their business development processes and those of their dealers, and reducing the costs associated with managing a network of diverse dealers with varying needs, resources and technology acumen.
“Manufacturers know first-hand the challenges that exist for the remodelers and contractors in their network. The top 20% produce 80% of the revenues, while the rest struggle to make it,” states improveit! 360 President and CEO Brian Leader. “Worrying about whether they have enough leads for the sales required to keep their business afloat, and coping with the daily frustrations caused by inefficient processes and outdated technology, they’re caught in a never-ending cycle of chaos that makes survival the focus and growth an elusive dream. Almost 90% of them fail within the first 5 years,” he adds.
improve it! 360 is transforming the industry by offering something different — a fresh approach to an age-old problem. Without it, home improvement dealers will likely stay on the treadmill forever and manufacturers will pay the price too. Dealers will continue to work harder and earn less, or even close.
By utilizing improveit! 360, home remodelers can improve closing rates by 200% by using the system’s unique embedded marketing system built on the best practice of continual, automated re-marketing. Unique results wizards ensure that leads are never lost and deliver consistent, predictable lead flow. Dealers further improve marketing effectiveness by using professionally designed marketing templates and materials developed by their manufacturers for campaigns. improveit! 360 has been proven to help dealers grow their businesses by 30% and more.
Beyond connecting them to their manufacturers and increasing their ability to market more effectively, improveit! 360 helps home remodelers automate lead management, manage projects and service, comply with government regulations like the EPA Lead-Safe Work Practices, and view all customer interactions from one centralized location.
“Others have tried to solve dealer’s problem with software, but time has shown that software alone cannot accomplish the goal of true market transformation. That’s why improveit! 360 has created a complete transformation process that not only offers revolutionary software built on the platform of the world leader in CRM and Cloud Computing, Salesforce.com, it plugs dealers into an industry-focused supportive and educational community where they continually learn how to grow, lower their costs, automate their marketing, maintain consistent, predictable lead flow and manage by data, not by gut,” shared CEO Brian Leader.
