Glance solutions are already used by thousands of companies worldwide to enhance productivity, shorten sales cycles, cut costs and close more business. Glance differs from traditional web conferencing and webinar tools in that it’s engineered for impromptu conversations, rather than for pre-scheduled events. Glance sessions can be initiated with just one click. With no software to download, participants are instantly connected.
With Glance for Salesforce, reps can launch demos simply by clicking on a Glance icon that appears within the Salesforce interface. Behind the scenes, Glance’s Cloud Service automatically tracks and stores each rep’s activity enabling real-time reporting. Glance for Salesforce dashboards provide critical insight into how sales demos affect rep productivity and profit. Glance for Salesforce can also be used for customer support sessions.
Glance is demonstrating Glance for Salesforce publicly for the first time at Dreamforce (Booth #1107). According to Tom Scontras, vice president of sales and marketing at Glance, customer reaction to Glance for Salesforce has been extremely positive. “When we asked customers what more we could do to help improve their sales efficiency, Salesforce integration was at the top of their list,” said Scontras. “We tend to work with companies that are very tech-savvy and early adopters of Sales 2.0 technologies. Glance for Salesforce is a powerful tool for ‘Quota Killer’ sales reps who need to make a big impact during a short phone conversation.”
“In our business, demos have a major impact on our ability to close sales,” said Derek Dean, director of sales strategy at Reed Construction Data, a current Glance user. “Glance already enables our reps to do more demos, and that has had a direct correlation to revenue. Our entire sales process is managed within Salesforce – being able to launch Glance sessions right there will make our team even more productive, and will also improve my ability to measure results and refine our sales processes. This is a great tool for Salesforce users.”
