Salesforce.com launches Sales Reach for real-time selling and marketing

Salesforce.com is combining its Pardot marketing software, sales automation application and social communities platform into a new product called Sales Reach, which it says can help salespeople nurture leads and make deals in real time.

Today's buyers don't follow a linear, predictable process, said Mark Woollen, senior vice president of product marketing, Salesforce.com Sales Cloud. Sales Reach gives salespeople the ability to closely track a prospect's buying mood and then "strike while the iron is hot," all from their mobile devices, Woollen said.

To this end, Sales Reach provides real-time activity notifications that get pushed to a salesperson's device. For example, a salesperson might get a notification that a prospect just downloaded a case study from the company's product website and looked at pricing information, said Salesforce.com product evangelist Mathew Sweezey.

"This is the right time to call him," Sweezey said. In the past, a salesperson would set up a task in their CRM (customer-relationship-management) system to remind themselves to call the prospect within a certain time frame, which is a roll of the dice compared to Sales Reach's capabilities, according to Sweezey.

Sales Reach's purpose doesn't end there, however. The salesperson may reach the prospect on the phone only to learn they didn't have time to have a serious phone conversation. The salesperson could then kick off a 30-day lead-nurturing campaign that sends out follow-up emails.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
