SAN JOSE, Calif. and DUBLIN, June 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
New Altify Summer '18 release coaches sales teams, provides GDPR compliant data, enhances Salesforce Quip collaboration
Altify, the pioneer in digital sales transformation software for businesses worldwide, announces its Summer 2018 product release. The new version of Altify's flagship platform features the introduction of augmented intelligence into account planning, delivering best practice sales coaching directly into the application to help sales teams more effectively add value and find new potential opportunities. The Summer '18 release also provides increased data security with compliance to the data protection regulation, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enhanced team collaboration capabilities including the option to export account and opportunity plans to Quip, Salesforce's collaboration platform, and new growth services to accelerate product adoption.
Altify's augmented intelligence solution, Altify Max, provides account reps and sales teams with real-time advice on next steps to enhance and manage opportunities and account plans. For example, Max can suggest risks to deal advancement or closure, prompt sales reps to schedule account reviews, or suggest how to capture insights that will advance account strategies to build new pipeline and new opportunities in the account. Augmented intelligence from Altify guides, trains and supports salespeople, reducing the time it takes for new hires to be productive. Previously only available for opportunities, the addition of augmented intelligence to account plans gives sales teams actionable insights to upsell and cross sell, helping them uncover new opportunities in their existing accounts.
