MDS will focus on acquiring LOB and sr IT contacts, and making cold calls to introduce Backbase to these prospects. We will also nurture these new contacts via SFDC with newsletters, and materials focused on executive audiences. By sending valuable written informtion, they are likely to forward this information down through their organizationsand create new opportunites for us. Ideally, by selling directly to LOB, we will circumvent lengthy IT evaluation processes. We’d like to offer 2 week application prototyping to get executive’s attention, and to show that Customer Engagement Aps don’t always require 10 developers and 12 months. Backbase can be a relatively low cost and low risk alternative.
