The Force.com AppExchange is a tremendous resource for our customers, and puts a wealth of rich applications and functionality at their fingertips
Piscataway, NJ (PRWEB) November 3, 2008
InetSoft Technology, an innovator in dashboard, reporting and analysis solutions, today announced the launch of its dashboard and reporting solution on the Force.com AppExchange from salesforce.com. InetSoft's Style Intelligence for Salesforce CRM brings new analytical capabilities to Salesforce users including the ability to analyze historical snapshots of their CRM data, schedule reports, and interactively visualize their data.
Built using the Force.com platform, Style Intelligence for Salesforce CRM is immediately available for test drive and deployment on the Force.com AppExchange at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange/. The announcement was made today at Dreamforce '08, salesforce.com's User and Developer Conference.
With Style Intelligence for Salesforce CRM, InetSoft brings business intelligence technologies developed over the past 12 years to Salesforce users that will enhance their ability to work with and learn from their customer and sales information. The application features a rich and powerful Flex-based Web 2.0 interface for building and customizing dashboards and creating and scheduling reports with flexible automatic distribution options.
A significant advance is the unique ability to analyze historical snapshots of Salesforce data. A fundamental challenge for CRM users is that their data is always changing, and existing applications only store the current status of a lead or customer, not its lifecycle. Now sales or marketing operations professionals can measure campaign performance or business development efforts by charting and analyzing the history of communications or status changes.
"The salesforce.com customer base and partner solutions community is impressive in its scale and maturity, and it is exciting to be able to identify an unmet need and come up with a unique solution to it," comments Mark Flaherty, Vice President of Marketing at InetSoft. "Knowledge and performance management are key to competitive advantage, and our application aims to give companies that incremental edge in intelligence. Now sales and marketing professionals can compare lead generation campaigns run over different times, or measure amounts of time opportunities spend in different stages of the sales funnel and compare that to the same metrics at other points in time."
"The Force.com AppExchange is a tremendous resource for our customers, and puts a wealth of rich applications and functionality at their fingertips," said Clarence So, chief marketing officer at salesforce.com. "InetSoft's Style Intelligence provides dashboards and reporting that extend the capabilities within Salesforce CRM, so companies can gain even greater insight into their business."
