Innovations Aimed at Simplifying Cross-Department Content Creation, Review and Approvals
INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 11, 2015) — TinderBox, a leader in sales productivity technologies, announced today it has expanded its sales productivity platform with new tools to streamline workflow and approvals across sales, marketing and legal teams.The new innovations make it possible for teams across an organization to collaborate on contracts, quotes, sales proposals and presentations in real-time or through a user-defined workflow to enforce approvals and ensure accuracy. “Selling is a team sport that often requires sales teams to work with legal departments, marketing and technical teams to create contracts, quotes, proposals and even presentations,” said Dustin Sapp, TinderBox co-founder and chief executive officer. “These new innovations make it easier and more efficient for teams across a company to work together to create and deliver accurate, compliant and compelling sales materials fast.” Available directly from the TinderBox interface, the new workflow tools span the company’s suite of products for creating, delivering and tracking online contracts, sales proposals, quotes and presentations. Key features include:
- Task Management – Assign individual tasks to review pricing, legal language, branding or solicit responses to questions in a request for proposal (RFP);
- Global Workgroups – Create online workgroups for brands, divisions or geographies and control access through enterprise permissions;
- Sales Asset Management – Schedule publication of new sales content and expire content from a central dashboard that instantly notifies users of changes; and
- Alerting & Notification – Automatically receive email alerts identifying new tasks, pending approvals and new content available for inclusion in sales materials.
“We’re solving the significant challenges that exist in nearly every enterprise sales organization – control, process and visibility,” said Jim McIntosh, TinderBox’s director of product management. “With our latest innovations, we’re solving these challenges with a better way to collaborate and create accurate online sales materials.” TinderBox’s expanded workflow capabilities are now generally available to TinderBox customers at no additional cost. The news of TinderBox’s latest innovation follows the announcement of TinderBox Insights™, the company’s new visual reporting solution. The solution provides an online canvas to drag and drop any sales criterion such as contract value, geography, time or salesperson to discover insights about the sales process, buyer’s journey and performance of TinderBox-powered online documents.
