San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Talent Analytics, Corp. today announces the worldwide launch of Talent Analytics for Salesforce™ on salesforce.com’s AppExchange, the world’s most popular cloud marketplace for social apps for business. The announcement was made today at salesforce.com’s Dreamforce 2012 in San Francisco. Talent Analytics will be demoing this solution in booth 19 in the Dreamforce Expo.
Talent Analytics for Salesforce eliminates the need for external sales assessments that rarely link to an increase in performance. Job benchmarks inform hiring, promotion and compensation decisions, while “benchmarking on the fly” functionality keeps benchmarks “fresh” based on current top performance and performers. In addition to benchmark, analytics-driven Collaboration and Management Guides enable just in time collaboration, coaching and mentoring – individually customized for each person in the conversation.
Built on the Salesforce Platform, the world’s leading cloud platform for social and mobile business apps, Talent Analytics for Salesforce is available for immediate deployment via the AppExchange at bit.ly/tasfappexchange.
“Visualizing the link between ‘people’ and their sales performance directly inside Salesforce is a seismic shift. It’s only when ‘people data’ is analyzed in conjunction with ‘performance data’ that top performance is predictable,” said Greta Roberts, CEO of Talent Analytics, Corp.
“Sales management has forever been challenged to hire top sales people, assign accounts they can close and tailor their coaching approach to ultimately close more business. Talent Analytics for Salesforce addresses these challenges by delivering individually customized guidance and analytics that easily combine with traditional Salesforce performance metrics. Finally, sales managers have access to real data to make these decisions, reducing guesswork and driving a more scalable sales management model,” said Rebecca Wettemann, Vice President, Nucleus Research.
"In the new normal for sales, many of today’s prospects research vendor offerings prior to sales discussions. This educated buyer has driven a corresponding shift in what makes for a successful salesperson. Talent Analytics for Salesforce™ changes the game by enabling hiring managers to visualize ongoing shifts and predict tomorrow’s sales rep requirements, all natively inside of the Salesforce Platform," said David Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President at Brainshark, Inc.
“Companies around the globe are transforming the way they connect with customers, partners and employees through social and mobile cloud solutions,” said Mike Rosenbaum, senior vice president AppExchange and Force.com Operations, salesforce.com. “Partners such as Talent Analytics, Corp. are leveraging the power of the Salesforce Platform and the reach of our ecosystem to accelerate customers’ transformation into social businesses.”
