[With Entomo's cCRM] we can ensure that sales results are aligned with sales strategies. – Keith Braesch, Vice President of Sales at Targus
Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Entomo, Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based Channel Control and Revenue Management (cCRM) solutions, today announced that Targus, Inc. has successfully deployed the POS Data Management, Sales Credit Assignment and Channel Analytics modules of Entomo’s SmartHub® platform.
The solution automates and streamlines POS processing and reconciliation of Point of Sale (POS) data from Targus’ distributors, OEMs, DMRs, retailers and etailers. Analytics and Dashboards provide real-time channel insight. The enhanced data is then used to pay sales commissions, reward partners and engage with end customers. Complete automated audit trails enable quick resolution of any disputes raised by partners or sales reps.
“The new cCRM platform from Entomo allows us to see what’s going on in the different tiers of the channel,” said Keith Braesch, Vice President of Sales at Targus. “We can now ensure that sales results are aligned with sales strategies and allocate our resources accordingly.”
Handling multi-tier channel data is inherently complex. With Entomo’s automated approach to Channel Management, error-prone manual processes have been completely eliminated and turnaround times greatly reduced.
