San Francisco – Dreamforce 2014 – Oct. 13, 2014XANT, the leading cloud-based sales acceleration and intelligence technology company, today announced it has joined the Salesforce Analytics Cloud ecosystem to leverage valuable data insights and optimize sales processes for revenue growth.

Wave, the Salesforce Analytics Cloud, is the first cloud analytics platform designed for every business user, making it easier than ever for anyone to explore data, uncover new insights and take action instantly from any device.

Science is transforming the traditional sales process. Sales teams that use Analytics Cloud combined with XANT’s Neuralytics™ engine may benefit from a variety of internal and external data to determine which sales representatives, leads and activities will generate the most revenue. This type of insight from data is powerful; the potential ability to harness more than 10 billion sales interactions using the Neuralytics platform is game changing.

The revolutionary Neuralytics predictive sales engine takes analytics to the next level by making prescriptive recommendations based on past data, generating actionable sales insights through machine learning. For example, PowerDialer™ leverages Neuralytics to help sales teams connect with the most qualified, most contactable leads. For customers who also use Wave, data from those sales interactions could be included in Salesforce-native reporting and analysis in entirely new ways to improve performance and effectiveness.
