SalesFusion Combines Online and Offline Marketing with CRM

Customer Experience Matrix

Summary: SalesFusion combines all channels within marketing, and merges marketing automation with CRM as well. This breadth isn’t accompanied by tremendous depth: SalesFusion’s campaign management and built-in CRM tools are a bit limited. But the system does offer a comprehensive solution for smaller firms and, at least on the CRM side, can integrate with more powerful solutions including Salesforce.com , Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Siebel CRM On Demand.

Jesubi Doubles Sales Prospecting Efficiency

Customer Experience Matrix

You may not want to replace your CRM system with Jesubi, but dedicated prospecting teams should take a close look. The flash show when you enter the company’s Web site could easily be mistaken for a demand generation product – it lists campaign workflow, list segmentation, email templates, Salesforce.com integration and dynamic reporting. Building these links is difficult in most CRM software and virtually impossible in marketing automation systems.

Customer Experience Matrix

Encroachment by CMS systems poses another strategic threat to stand-alone demand generation vendors, who (at least in my opinion) are already in danger of being absorbed into CRM suites because of the need for closer integration between sales and marketing. To accentuate the positive, the system provides hierarchical folders for marketing assets, version tracking, expiration dates, advanced templates, and fine-grained user rights management.

SiteCore Adds Analytics and Marketing To Web Content Management

Customer Experience Matrix

Capturing detailed information with such systems involves much more than adding one code snippet to a shared page template. Systems for other channels then would connect with the Web database in the same way that auxiliary channels are (sometimes) now integrated with a central Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. For companies where the Web and CRM are both important independent systems, marketing automation is an ally they may both wish to annex.
