Insight  #2:  How  to  “Score”  Prospec2ve  Customers   Challenge:   SeVng   sales   and   markeJng   prioriJes   is   criJcal   to   effecJvely   determine   appropriate   resource   alloca2ons   for   specific   prospecJve   customer   segments.   Today   in-­‐bound   markeJng   campaigns   produce   leads   that   are   difficult   to   prioriJze   and   determine  the  markeJng  correct  responses.     Solu2on:   Quant5’s   decision   opportuniJes   module   allows   companies   to   accurately   rank   prospecJve   customers.     “Prospect   scores”   based   on   past   successes   empower   sales   groups   to   opJmally   allocate   their   resources   to   pursue   their   most   promising   opportuniJes  while  focusing  less  Jme  to  lower  priority  ones.  Quant5’s  integraJon  with,   Marketo,   and   Eloqua   provides   unique   support   for   today’s   leading   business  producJvity  soluJons  operaJng  in  markeJng  and  sales  environments.     Business  Applica2on:  B2B  &  B2C   Quant5  Module:  Decision  Opportuni2es   Ten  Cri+cal  Business  Insights   4  
  5. 5. Insight  #3:  How  to  Rank  Sales  Opportuni2es?   Challenge:   Sales   departments   are   constantly   updaJng   their   internal   forecasts   and  seVng  tacJcal  strategies  in  order  to  make  their  quarterly  revenues  numbers.   They   struggle   to   turn   their   tacJcal   strategies   into   truly   strategic   ones   that   will   reliably  deliver  the  numbers  they  want.     Solu2on:  By  assessing  opportuniJes  based  on  past  successes  businesses  are  much   beer  at  focusing  execuJve  and  other  key  resources  on  closing  high  priority  sales   opportuniJes.  Quant5’s  integraJon  with  provides  support  for  the   leading   CRM   system   and   its   predicJve   analyJcs   delivers   far   superior   ranking   of   sales  opportuniJes.     Business  Applica2on:  B2B  &  B2C   Quant5  Module:  Decision  Opportuni2es   Ten  Cri+cal  Business  Insights   5  
  6. 6. Insight  #4:  How  to  Track  Usage  Trends   Challenge:  Today  many  businesses  do  not  know  if  their  customers  are  at  risk  of   churn.   Two   criJcal   indicators   –   product   and   customer   usage   trends   –   are   oGen   overlooked   by   businesses   as   indicators   of   churn   risk   during   Jmes   when   their   focus  is  on  generaJng  new  prospects  and  paying  customers.     Solu2on:   Quant5’s   product   use   module   analyzes   this   data   and   creates   insights   into   underlying   trends.   This   module   is   especially   helpful   to   companies   who   engage   their   customers   in   long-­‐term   contracts,   subscripJons   or   licenses.     It   is   also  helpful  to  businesses  that  want  to  understand  how  product  usage  can  be  an   indicator  of  customer  saJsfacJon.     Business  Applica2on:  B2B  &  B2C   Quant5  Module:  Product  Use     Ten  Cri+cal  Business  Insights   6  
  7. 7. Insight  #5:  How  to  Create  Truly  InsighVul  Customer  Segmenta2on   Challenge:   For   far   too   many   companies   customer   segmentaJon   starts   out   as   esJmates  based  on  “gut”  insJnct  and  grow  over  Jme  to  intui%ve  approxima%ons  of   purchase   levels   by   groups.   As   a   company   grows   and   its   customer   base   changes,   these   esJmates   are   no   longer   effecJve   –   yet   they   remain   in   place   leading   to   ineffecJve  markeJng  plans,  flawed  strategies  and  uneconomical  budgets.     Solu2on:   Quant5’s   customer   segmentaJon   module   idenJfies   groups   of   customers   by   loyalty  traits  and  purchase  paerns.  The  composiJons  of  these  groups  are  then  used  to   improve   markeJng   program   effecJveness   simply   by   focusing   the   messaging   and   target   of  product  and  service  offering  –  the  right  offer  to  the  right  customer!     Business  Applica2on:  B2B  &  B2C   Quant5  Module:  Customer  Segmenta2on   Ten  Cri+cal  Business  Insights   7

  10. 10. Insight  #8:  Profitability  by  Product  and  Category   Challenge:   When   companies   and   their   product   lines   grow   they   need   to   develop   different   incenJve-­‐based   loyalty   and   promoJons   strategies.     These   programs   enable   them   to   generate   new   insights   into   the   profitability   of   products   and   categories.   Unfortunately,   many   companies   sJll   rely   on   spreadsheets   that   oGen   do   not   take   into   account   discounJng   (e.g.   couponing,   and   loyalty   program   incenJves   in   product   profitability   analyses.     Solu2on:  Quant5’s  product  profitability  model  was  designed  to  present  a  more  accurate   representaJon   of   revenue   and   profits.   This   module   enables   marketers   to   generate   product   and   profitability   insights   for   use   in   both   product   and   strategic   planning   and   in   conjuncJon   with   other   product   management   modules   –   such   as   Quant5’s   Product   RelaJonships.     Business  Applica2on:  B2C   Module:  Product  Profitability   Ten  Cri+cal  Business  Insights   10
