Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) October 21, 2008
Today's uncertain economic time has companies scrambling to cut costs across the board, putting more pressure than ever on sales, procurement and contract management executives to negotiate the best deals. Marty Latz, nationally acclaimed expert negotiator, author, columnist, law professor and trainer today announced the launch of ExpertNegotiator®, a cost-effective software solution which is the first online technology to empower front-line negotiation teams with proven, research-based strategies and best practices from the world's strongest negotiators. In addition, ExpertNegotiator extends companies' investments in employees' negotiation training and other technology solutions such as CRM systems by ensuring the most effective negotiation skills are applied in every deal, every step of the way.
"Effective negotiation has the greatest impact on a company's bottom-line success, yet many still rely on ineffective, off-the-cuff techniques that waste time and money," says Marty Latz, Founder and CEO of ExpertNegotiator. "ExpertNegotiator is the most powerful negotiation solution available, best positioning companies in negotiations with their prospects, installed customer base, vendors and all through their supply chain."
Companies Cannot Live by CRM Alone
CRM systems such as Salesforce.com, Oracle (Siebel) and SalesLogix provide sophisticated prospecting management and reporting systems but don't include the tools to strategically or effectively manage the crucial negotiation process. ExpertNegotiator picks up where CRM systems drop off users, empowering them with a host of tools that apply experts' negotiation strategies in every step of the negotiation process and saving them time and reducing anxiety. It also provides managers with the ability to more accurately assess financial expectations via reporting features and an online window into every step of the negotiator's moves. In addition, ExpertNegotiator is cost effective. As a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, ExpertNegotiator is an on-demand, pay-as-you-go solution, requiring no additional hardware and no costly implementation and maintenance services.
"ExpertNegotiator is saving us thousands of dollars by helping us develop successful negotiation strategies," said Bill Kizorek, founder of Two Parrot Productions, an international video production company, and InPhoto Surveillance, the world's largest video surveillance company. "Its easy-to-use system for effectively planning and managing our negotiations immediately improved our bottom line and the experts' strategies continually help us gain the edge."
