Competition Current competing problems exist but the vast majority of them are flawed in one or several areas. * Alternative solutions are insufficient for the SMB for the following reasons: • Solutions are desktop based requiring installations and dedicated servers. Desktop • Desktop solutions are feature bloated with unnecessary, complex, and hard to use features. • Solutions live limited, or in many cases, no integration with CRM platforms (i.e. CRM Salesforce) or Marketing Automation Products (i.e. Marketo, Eloqua, etc) Integration • Integration (if possible) typically allows a ‘pull’ but cannot push quality data back onto the CRM / Sales management system. Price • SMBs are priced out of Territory Creation & Management solutions. Heavy solutions, old pricing structures, and antiquated revenue models are ripe for an update. • Existing legacy solutions are not flexible and cannot adequately adapt to the variety Workﬂow of companies who need this function. Integration • Terravide is being built from the ground up to compliment and optimize the Sales Operations process to create efficiencies and to maximize revenue.*Acquired by IBM (May 2012) www.terravide.com @Sales Monday, September 3, 2012
