April 20, 2010 — Provo, UT — XANT, the leading phone dialer software provider announced today it has been recognized as a CODiE Award Finalist for 2010 in the Best Communication Solution in the Software Category alongside Adobe Systems and BroadSoft, Inc.
PowerDialer for Salesforce was the first power dialer embedded directly into the salesforce.com CRM solution designed especially for business–to–business (B2B) inside sales applications as well as outbound call centers who want a next generation technology that increases odds of making sales remotely more than traditional predictive dialer solutions.
“This is the twenty‐fifth year we have recognized excellence in the software, education and information industries through the CODiE Awards program,” noted Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. “In this economic climate, companies do even more to innovate. XANT demonstrates commitment to innovation reflected in their selection as a finalist for the CODiE Awards. I am pleased and proud to have XANT listed among the candidates, and I wish them the best in the final round of voting.”
XANT pioneered Lead Response Management (LRM) technology allowing companies to respond immediately and persistently to their web–based leads. University research from Kellogg and SKKU done with XANT shows the odds of making contact with leads is 100x times higher if attempted within 5 minutes versus even waiting 30 minutes, let alone the typical 48 hours it takes companies to respond to leads.
“Combining the most powerful web–based dialer technology with the leading hosted Salesforce CRM solution has brought game changing results to the inside sales industry and our clients,” explains Dave Elkington, CEO of XANT. “Being recognized again, by an awards program of the caliber of the CODiE Awards, is extremely validating. I give credit to our product and development team for their great work.”
XANT offers hosted dialer software and lead management technology for Inside Sales departments in B2B companies as well as outbound call centers in the areas of insurance, mortgage, debt consolidation, marketing, online education, non–profit organizations, and more.
