New MicroStrategy Sales Productivity Solution, Built and Delivered by MicroStrategy Professional Services
MicroStrategy also announced today a new sales productivity solution, a MicroStrategy Professional Services™ offering designed to help organizations accelerate their implementation of a robust mobile sales analytics and enablement app. This solution is focused on improving the productivity of any sales organization by providing real-time access to critical sales materials, trends and customer insights through an intuitive and easy-to-use mobile app. The solution will enable sales managers to better understand, manage and take action on opportunities, forecasts and field sales activities while also enabling sales reps to better manage and focus their sales cycle efforts, expand deal sizes, and drive better and faster close rates on opportunities.  

With the solution, field sales professionals can:

  • View and maintain opportunity pipeline and sales forecasts;
  • Make active comparisons of their current forecast against previous periods, and quickly zero in on and understand what changed and why;
  • Access all current product information including demos, videos, brochures and other training materials;
  • Reference market information, competitor analysis and interactive sales presentations, and more; and
  • Access a combined, holistic view of all customer information, including buying records, accounts receivable, consulting projects delivered, and tech support history. With this 360-degree view of their accounts, sales reps can better determine probable buying trends and execute on cross-sell/up-sell opportunities.

This sales productivity solution extends the best aspects of today's most prominent sales force automation (SFA) and customer relationship management (CRM) platforms, such as salesforce.com, and enhances their capabilities for sales management and sales operations teams. By applying MicroStrategy analytics to native SFA data, customers can gain visibility and clarity into their sales operations, providing them with the ability to spot trends, identify new opportunities and project future sales. Sales management and sales operations personnel have powerful time-series analytics at their fingertips, such as insight into customer buying habits, visibility into field sales activity and field rep attainment, and improved forecasting accuracy.

New Product Capabilities for MicroStrategy Mobile App
The MicroStrategy Mobile App™— rated as the number one Mobile BI solution by leading industry analysts — has been further enhanced to provide users with an intuitive powerful, fast, and secure business app.

New and improved capabilities announced include:

  • Redesigned and optimized app experience for iOS7. The MicroStrategy Mobile App has been optimized to deliver a seamless iOS7 experience, providing users with a more efficient design. Enhancements range from folder browsing and data visualizations, to prompting and transactional inputs. 
  • Faster app performance. MicroStrategy's latest mobile clients and server technology deliver 1.4x greater capacity than the company's last release. With the same configuration and infrastructure, existing customers can deliver fast response times to tens of thousands of active users simply by upgrading to the latest version of MicroStrategy 9™, version 9.4.
  • Enhanced analytics. MicroStrategy Visual Insight dashboards have been significantly improved, providing users with tap and drag capabilities to re-arrange the different visualizations on a dashboard. Each visualization utilizes responsive design to optimally fill the available space. Additionally, MicroStrategy has added support for nested prompts and has enhanced its library of visualizations. 
  • New native transactional front-ends. As part of its mobile transactional capabilities, MicroStrategy now includes front-end widgets to leverage native transactional controls in iOS7 for all transactional inputs (e.g. text, date, switches, barcodes, and image capture), providing developers with a powerful tool to quickly build transactional apps. 
  • Enterprise-grade security further enhanced. Whether deploying financial data to company-owned devices or sales information to personal devices in a BYOD deployment, security of the information is critical. New enhancements to the MicroStrategy Mobile App include app-level passcodes, double encryption, and integration with MicroStrategy's Identity Platform™ solution, MicroStrategy Usher™, which can be utilized for login validation.
