Sunnyvale, CA — August 18, 2016 — Clari, the leading end-to-end sales analytics and forecasting solution provider, today announced the public release of Connect, a platform dedicated to solving the challenges in sales team communication and collaboration on deals. Connect brings a powerful, enterprise-grade, bot-enhanced messaging experience to the Clari platform, enabling sales teams to communicate in a single, streamlined interface.
“In today’s market, success depends on accurate, real-time information. Enterprise companies can now maximize productivity further with the power of artificial intelligence and messaging,” said Andy Byrne, CEO of Clari. “Connect is an entirely new way for sales teams to communicate and collaborate on deals, by combining the personal touch of human interaction with the convenience of automated, intelligent bots.”
Many enterprise technology companies have recently focused on harnessing the power of artificial intelligence — with a massive opportunity to do so in Sales. "The use of artificial intelligence to improve sales execution is one of the top areas of interest for many of the sales operations leaders we speak with at SiriusDecisions," said Steve Silver, Senior Research Director at SiriusDecisions. “While applications for artificial intelligence are only starting to emerge, improving real-time collaboration across a distributed sales organization is one of the early use cases that delivers an immediate benefit for sales reps and leaders."
A first in the industry, Connect helps sales teams do the following:
- Centralize Deal Information: Sales team members can quickly share and receive information about deals, coordinate meetings, make announcements, and conduct all important business conversations in one place, in real-time.
- Keep Conversations Relevant: With a timeline view of deal conversations, users can easily refer to important event and see the past responses and automated messages, so teams are equipped with the context to close the deal.
- Stay Proactive: Individual sales team members receive automated push notifications about deal updates and key activity — such as meetings scheduled, moved, and cancelled — as they happen, so sales leaders never miss a new business opportunity.
- Receive Smart Nudges: Automated, rule-based, data-driven bot alerts provide prescriptive actions for reps to increase productivity.
- Access Intel Anywhere: With automatic sync across mobile, desktop and web, users can start a conversation on one device and seamlessly continue it on another — without losing any previous context.
“When we work across multiple time zones and geographies, our teams need to communicate, collaborate, and make decisions in real time,” said Matt Young, Vice President Sales, Asia Pacific and Japan at Nutanix. “Connect is the first to go beyond email and unify deal communications across our sales teams. It’s what every enterprise sales team needs — a faster, smarter way to collaborate and get business done.”
