    • Overview: For the last 14 months, eAccountableOPM has rolled out the UpSellIt Save-A-Sale Technology to Convert Users Abandoning Carts into Sales for a variety of their managed clients.
    • UpSellit works by bringing the prospect back to the point of sale, with its virtual agent chat box. The prospect is offered an incentive- a coupon or promotion- to complete the sale. Similar to an in-store sales representative, the virtual agent offers product detail or special promotions to complete the sale.
    • UpSellit works on a “performance” program basis with eAccountableOPM Clients.
    • UpSellit is completely scalable- and can communicate with 10-10 million customers simultaneously.
