About XP3 Suite - Turning Data into Revenue
Powerful business intelligence enterprise solutions have made huge amounts of data available for corporations to access, mine and analyze. This proliferation of data and mining/analysis tools should provide a windfall of opportunities to drive profitability throughout the organization. However, in order to provide customer-facing teams clear and concise data in an insightful and usable manner, corporations must still invest a substantial amount of time gathering the appropriate data and translating it into persuasive and visually compelling sales and marketing presentations. In addition to freeing up valuable resources across the enterprise, XP3’s presentation capabilities provide field users and management with intelligent findings about the data in their company’s data warehouse, as well as the ability to customize the presentation and sales message on-the-fly.
XP3 combines a powerful data analysis engine with flexible end-user tools to summarize and visualize the right data for the right audience. It produces concise and actionable insights complete with intelligent summaries, charts and graphs that can be understood by business users of all kinds. Thousands of sales and marketing professionals from the most successful manufacturers currently use XP3 to develop and automatically populate data-driven sales and management presentations against data sets as large as hundreds of gigabytes, with hundreds of thousands of members in certain dimensions.
XP3 Suite is designed specifically to turn data into revenue. It works with existing customer data management solutions (or its own data warehouse) to place vast amounts of data at the fingertips of distributed sales and management teams in a user friendly and intuitive environment. Integrated with Microsoft Office®, XP3 includes the tools needed to easily create visually stunning, data-driven presentations directly in Microsoft PowerPoint®. The Gartner Group refers to this as XP3’s Point of Impact, because this is where and how a corporation’s investment in business intelligence can be used to influence customer decision-making, converting data and technology into sales.
