LeadMaster ‘Smart Queues’ bring Intelligence to Call Centers & Inside Sales


Roswell, GA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

LeadMaster, a leader in Sales and Marketing Automation solutions announces ‘Smart Queues’, the latest enhancement to their Cloud-Based CRM solution. Smart Queues provide the ability to organize prospects and customer call records from different sources and automatically serve them up to the sales team in prioritized order. Once a caller enters a pre-defined Smart Queue the system intelligently determines which call records will have the highest priority (score) and begins to deliver them to the agent.

For most business, raw prospects and customer inquiries can come from a variety of sources. The challenge is to ensure higher priority inquiries are worked first. Smart Queues allow management to pre-define how leads are scored, keeping the guesswork out of the hands of the call team.

For example, suppose leads are coming from three sources: the companys website, Google advertising and pre-qualified purchased leads. A Smart Queue can be setup so that pre-qualified leads will always be delivered first and then a blend of website and advertising leads are delivered when there are no pre-qualified leads available.

For outbound calling teams The Smart Queue will be especially effective for improving productivity.

LogiXML Positioned in 2012 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms

McLean, VA (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

LogiXML, the pioneer of web-based business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned LogiXML in its 2012 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms* report. This years report evaluated 21 different software vendors.

We are pleased to be positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for BI, said Brett Jackson, CEO of LogiXML. LogiXML continues to deliver on its value proposition of ease of use, rapid time to deployment, lower cost and high customer satisfaction, and this year we intend to be the leading BI vendor for embedded analytics.

Gartner has identified six trends that directly impact the direction of the BI platforms market, the first being the differences between business users and IT driving product preferences. According to Gartner, The crux of the conflict remains the same as last year: business users demand easy to use, flexible products that put analytic power into their own hands, against IT’s desire to maintain standards and create a supportable BI environment with predictable performance and quality data. These different points of view are evident in the results of the Magic Quadrant survey, with business users identifying “ease of use” as their primary buying motivation 52 percent of the time, and where IT ranks “functionality” as its No. 1 priority.”

LogiXMLs overall approach to providing dashboards, reporting, and analytics is straightforward and reasonably priced. Its simple to deploy and maintain, and it’s possible to deploy within hours, regardless if it’s on private infrastructure, cloud servers, or on IaaS settings, said Joe Sabados, Web projects manager for SAIC, a Fortune 500
