Provo, Utah – March 17, 2009 – XANT, the leading provider of on-demand technologies for professional sales organizations who sell remotely, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC®) INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine has named its PowerDialer ™ for salesforce.com as a recipient of its 2008 Product of the Year Award.
XANT is recognized as the pioneer of immediate response technologies with groundbreaking lead response research done with Kellogg on increased contact and qualification rates from responding in 5 minutes to web-based leads.
“We are grateful to once again be recognized for our flagship phone dialer software technology,” explained David Elkington, CEO and Chairman of XANT. “We have been very pleased with our partnership with salesforce.com as an AppExchange partner. We have struck a chord of need in the marketplace as more companies are scaling back travel and field sales resources in favor of selling remotely. We add powerful productivity tools to salesforce.com, the leading CRM in the world.”
XANT chose to release their PowerDialer for salesforce.com at Dreamforce ’08 last November. It is embedded power dialer technology within Salesforce that allows inside sales reps of B2B companies to quadruple productivity. It incorporates nearly two dozen productivity ‘power tools’ like voice messaging, where a rep selects from a library of a pre-recorded voicemails in their own voice and leave it on an answering machine with a click and moves to the next call.
“INTERNET TELEPHONY is pleased to grant a 2008 Product of the Year Award to XANT again this year for their PowerDialer for salesforce.com application, a part of the XANT lead management suite for AppExchange. XANT has proven again they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC President and Editor-in-Chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. “We’re proud to honor their accomplishments in the advancement of IP communications and look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the future.”
