Pat Horner, Vice President for Sales for then INTERSOLV, was faced with "information out of control" and the desire to focus the energies and results of a sales team distributed throughout North America. He retained The Resource Network to assist management of this global software company in bringing together information to understand and focus on key sales opportunities and customers.

Universal Sales Prospect / Customer Information System Starting from spreadsheets and the visual creation of a "Universal Sales Prospect/Customer Information System" cloud we devised a solution that aggregated information from internal and external worlds. We worked as a catalyst between sales, marketing, IT and finance and external providers - working from a sales perspective in a way recognized by Gartner Group as exemplary. We helped bring together functions and places listed on the left hand toolbar as we:
  • Worked with sales reps, the internal IT organization, and sales automation/CRM vendors to optimize use of sales productivity tools to better meet end user and management needs.
  • Brought together internal teams with business intelligence providers to compile extended customer enterprise profiles that helped leverage small disparate deals into some of the largest wins in company history.
  • Developed Sales Central as a web based resource that assimilated information from disparate sources and made it easily accessible to the global organization. Pulled information hourly from around the world and made it easily accessible for all.
  • Storyboarded the ideal set up of reports to provide a useful profile of a customer with top sales and finance people. Worked with IT and external resources to bring the pieces together for what became recognized as a true enterprise integration of technologies of Microsoft, SAP, Saratoga Systems , and Siebel Systems and global information services of Siebel Systems, Harte-Hanks Market Intelligence, Hoover's Online, One Source , and more.
  • Deployed interactive sales and pipeline reports by customer, opportunity, region, rep, currency, time frame and more.
  • Developed a Sales Team Profiler to easily identify and know the sales team.
  • Facilitated interactive global feedback including web and on-site "jam sessions". Listened, learned and continually improved the system.
