Automotive aftermarket warehouse distributors and jobbers can now improve customer relationship management, identify new sales opportunities, monitor sales activity and improve customer service with a new cost-effective on-demand service. The new service, called sales-i was unveiled at the 2010 AAPEX/SEMA Show in Las Vegas, is a proven platform in the UK automotive market that is being brought to North America through a strategic agreement between WebLink Solutions Corporation and sales-i.
JD Meints, WebLink's President, said, "sales-i is a perfect tool for distributors to unearth the gold in sales data and identify opportunities for upselling and cross selling. It includes built-in CRM functionality to put sales organizations ahead of the curve in customer visibility and service." Meints also noted that sales-i was designed for high volume distribution businesses. "In the past our industry has 'made do' with a patchwork of internal systems and perhaps some salesforce.com. The significant difference with sales-i is that it includes integrated sales and customer intelligence, in one system, delivered using an on- demand software as a service (SaaS) model on a very low subscription fee basis. What's more, sales-i delivers real- time information to any mobile device making it ideal for sales reps in the field as well as office-based sales staff. I know the automotive market will love this and adopt it very quickly and we are delighted to be the first to market with this exciting sales acceleration tool."
WebLink unveiled its new sales-i service at the AAPEX and SEMA Shows.
Kevin McGirl, sales-i co-founder, is delighted to welcome this strategic partnership with WebLink. "WebLink has an outstanding reputation for delivering robust, flexible and comprehensive eCommerce solutions to the North American automotive market. They have extensive market footprint and knowledge and we could not have found a company better placed to launch sales-i into this market." Kevin continued, "We have already secured a growing base of automotive customers in the UK including Yuasa Batteries, Universal Components, Kalimex and Alexander Dennis and they are reaping fast returns and increased sales. We are looking forward to supporting JD and the WebLink team to enable this vast market with business-changing sales and customer intelligence.
