Foretuit taps into the social, mobile and open capabilities of cloud computing to bring its intelligent, predictive approach for sales forces in social enterprises
NEW YORK – CLOUDFORCE NEW YORK – Nov. 30, 2011 – Foretuit today announced it has launched its new Social Sales Analytic mobile application for iPad and Android tablets on salesforce.com’s AppExchange for Mobile, extending the goals of the social enterprise. The Foretuit solution provides a real-time snapshot of sales activities based on actual behavior, greatly improving sales efficiency and effectiveness by an order of magnitude unseen in today’s CRM offerings. The Foretuit application is now available on the AppExchange for Mobile.
By combining real world activity, such as emails, tasks, appointments as well as Chatter and other social feeds together with CRM information (such as salesforce.com opportunity history) a company can use Foretuit to identify patterns within unstructured activities– separating the proverbial wheat from the chaff within the sales pipeline. Through the use of advanced analytics applied to a real-time snapshot of actual behavior (versus CRM data) companies can greatly improve both sales efficiency and effectiveness by an order of magnitude unseen in today’s sales management solutions.
“Foretuit maps social interactions to determine patterns that provide predictive outcomes for any front office scenario, particularly sales. The service analyzes the collaborative structures within the enterprise using unstructured data gathered from employee and buyer digital behavior – such as email and calendar data – then identifies patterns based on their roles, frequency of communication and output,” said Michael Liebow, Founder and CEO of Foretuit. “The result is better deal lifecycle management, and improved business outcomes for enterprises at a lower cost. Now, the powerful cloud-based application is available on mobile platforms, tapping into the power of the Force.com platform, salesforce.com’s social enterprise platform for employee social apps.”
The Foretuit 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. Since most sales teams are essentially mobile, the application provides the social, open, mobile and trusted capabilities of the AppExchange marketplace. Foretuit helps keep Sales teams updated on activities without entering information, while it gives Management more transparency and visibility into sales processes without relying on a weekly interrogation or subjective reporting.
“Customers are continuing to look to our partners as they reinvent themselves as social enterprises and companies like Foretuit are helping them in that shift,” said Ron Huddleston, vice president, ISV Alliances, salesforce.com. “Foretuit, a top 8 finalist in our recent AppQuest challenge, shows it can integrate industry leading technologies like HTML5 with our Force.com platform to provide Salesforce customers with enhanced capabilities to drive real business outcomes.”
