Growth Intelligence® dramatically increases sales conversion using Big Data. Before Growth Intelligence® there was no real-time source of information on the activity or performance of private companies. This means that B2B businesses are optimising sales and marketing approaches using old data.
But everything a company does leaves a digital trace on the web. Growth Intelligence® creates a fingerprint of a company by gathering this data and processes it using machine learning to produce real-time intelligence on the performance and activity of millions of firms.
Growth Intelligence matches salespeople to ideal prospects at exactly the right time. This results in 10-20x performance boosts in sales performance and ROI for our customers. Contact Us and see what we can do for you.
