Solution provides a real-time snapshot based on actual behavior, greatly improving sales efficiency and effectiveness by an order of magnitude unseen in today’s CRM offerings
New York City (TechCrunch Disrupt) May 24, 2011 – Foretuit, a new intelligent, predictive approach to enterprise sales, debuted today at the prestigious TechCrunch Disrupt conference. Foretuit maps employees’ business behavior and determines patterns to provide predictive outcomes for any front office scenario, particularly sales. The service analyzes the collaborative structures within the enterprise using unstructured data gathered from an employee’s digital behavior – such as email and calendar data – then identifies patterns based on their roles, frequency of communication and output. The result is better deal lifecycle management, and improved business outcomes for enterprises at a lower cost.
“As an early beta customer, preliminary results suggest that the Foretuit solution could improve our ability to manage the sales process and improve our overall sales performance,” said Jim Somers, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer at Antenna Software. “We expect the predictive analysis capability will reveal nuances in the sales process that we never would have discovered without using Foretuit. When you’re operating in a market as dynamic as enterprise mobility, being able to identify sales trends rather than reacting to them can mean all the difference in the world.”
Foretuit stands apart in its relevance to the sales process and in its ability to dig into the underlying sales activities, providing a leadership approach to improved sales outcomes that is unmatched in the marketplace today. The solution is unique in how it captures statistical details and continually refines and expands its models, ’learning’ behaviors within a first-of-its-kind, proprietary structure.
“We are working to alleviate the pain points of both the sales and management teams with the Foretuit service,” said Michael Liebow, Founder and CEO of Foretuit. “Sales teams are not always aligned because individuals are focused on closing a sale and not updating time-consuming databases. Management teams spend 20% of their resources on weekly checkpoints and data compliance requirements, while sales outcomes remain a mystery. With Foretuit, sales teams can stay updated on activities without entering information, while management will have complete transparency and visibility into sales process without relying on a weekly interrogation.”
Foretuit’s initial SaaS solution is now available as a Freemium beta offering through a wait-list on the Fortuit website and will be available on Salesforce.com’s Appexchange in June. A Premium beta version is planned to launch in late 2011, targeting Sales Management and business operations, and providing enhanced pipeline and risk management across the entire sales team. A video demonstration of the service is available here: Foretuit demo.
Foretuit was selected from over 500 promising startups that applied to launch on-stage at TechCrunch Disrupt. Foretuit is based in New York and is and currently self-funded.
Foretuit takes an intelligent, predictive approach to business-to-business sales by determining patterns based on employees’ business behavior and analyzing that information in order to increase communication between colleagues, more closely link management to sales teams and to close deals faster and more efficiently.
