Sales and Marketing
Sales solutions consolidate and streamline the sales processes of an enterprise, from quote generation through order processing, at all points of customer contact including field sales, inside sales, contact center sales and field service sales. Lead-to-close sales process capabilities include integration with Astea's marketing, customer support and field service solutions, leveraging all enterprise knowledge pools with the goal to increase sales opportunities, margins and close rates.
More Leads. More Opportunities. More Sales.
Consolidated views of sales and service data also provide a clearer understanding of enterprise operations to drive strategic business decisions. Sales force automation applications automate business rules and practices such as enterprise-defined sales methodologies, sales pipeline management, territory management, contact and opportunity management, forecasting, collaborative team selling and literature fulfillment. The same functionality is delivered to mobile resources via the notebook application – with full two-way data synchronization with the central database, via wired and wireless networks. Other applications prompt customer support and service staff to up-sell and cross-sell during contact with customers.
Marketing solutions coordinate the planning, execution and analysis of marketing campaigns as well as supporting the budgeting and tracking of complete multi-channel campaigns that integrate advertising, direct mail, email marketing, telemarketing, etc. Electronic campaigns such as email and telemarketing are further supported with list management, script development and user interfaces for campaign execution. Marketing managers can define campaign offerings such as products and services to be sold, pricing and discount tolerances; assign campaign attributes; attach campaign documentation such as descriptive text, images, slogans and lead conversion literature; and monitor and measure response. The big picture view enables managers to assess synergies each channel delivers to an overall campaign and adjust channel details such as prospect lists, scripts, budgets or offering incentives to elicit best results. Integration with other Astea solutions enable equipment and service organizations to leverage customer information with the goal of identifying potential new revenue sources and marketing to maximize customer loyalty and sales opportunities.
