KALAMAZOO, Mich. (PRWEB) November 18, 2008
Eaton Vance Distributors, Inc. is one of the first SalesPage clients to experience the benefits of integration with Coates. "Direct access to this level of detailed, meaningful information from within our SalesPage application enables us to better define target audiences and identify new opportunities," said Brian Taranto, vice president and director of distribution administration. "Our wholesalers can retrieve critical product performance information before making visits to financial advisors, thereby enhancing the quality of each interaction they are having."
In the spring of 2008, SalesPage and Coates Analytics first engaged in discussion, and shortly after, established a partnership and began defining the integration process. With the integration now complete, SalesPage clients can access Coates data directly though a portal in SalesPage Financial.
"This partnership will ensure that robust decision-making information gets to the right people, so that they can make the right choices," said Frank Coates, president and CEO of Coates Analytics, a PNC company. "With this integration, SalesPage clients will be getting a wealth of data from us, via an easy, one-stop Web portal."
"Pushing branch, style and product information related to a firm and its competitors out to wholesalers will allow the wholesalers to critically evaluate their accounts. That gives them the ability to identify and prioritize crucial branch office visits," said Michael Pessetti, vice president of sales and marketing for SalesPage. "We look forward to working with Coates and to supplying our clients with solutions that provide a higher level of client relationship and data management."
