XANT Announces PowerStandings™ Gamification Platform in PowerDialer for Salesforce 5.0
SAN FRANCISCO, DREAMFORCE 2012, Sept. 17, 2012 – XANT, Inc., the leading cloud-based provider of sales automation and analytics for inside sales professionals today announced the launch of PowerStandings™, the gamification incentive platform for inside sales reps to its sales automation and predictive analytics platform. PowerStandings is a game-changing toolset integrated seamlessly within the Salesforce CRM interface and significantly enhances rep performance, drive and experience. XANT will be releasing PowerStandings at their VIP press event Monday, Sept. 17 at 5:00 p.m. at the W San Francisco and demonstrating it at booth #322 during Dreamforce, Sept. 18-21. PowerStandings takes sales automation technology to the next level with the integration of gamification into PowerDialer for Salesforce®. With this new product release, sales professionals can now compete against each other in an environment that is more interactive and results oriented while also driving performance. “Sales reps, by nature, are very competitive people,” explained Dave Elkington, CEO and founder of XANT. “This tool plays off of that competitive spirit and transforms it into increased results. In the PowerStandings product, managers can create different challenges, such as a daily dials metric or closed revenue that allow sales reps to compete against each other and achieve rewards and earn badges to demonstrate their successes. Using leaderboards displayed on large monitors throughout the office, reps can also see real time performance rankings. This will be a game changer to the inside sales world.” Like PowerText™ and PowerSocial™ (also to be released at Dreamforce), inside sales managers can use PowerStandings as an additional selling tool in their toolbox. Specific features include a standings bar, which is similar to a standings bar found in popular video games found at the top of the monitor. Within the standings bar, the reps’ daily scores, based on daily calls, appointments set, etc., are compared against the average of their team or company. There is also a ‘points’ based social interaction feature allowing reps to issue ‘trash talk’ to each other. Trash talk allows reps to use earned points to encourage and interact with each other as they work toward achievements, challenges and goals. Sales reps also earn a profile based PowerScore, updated live, to showcase their performance based on a scale of 1 to 100.
