Social CRM - Xeesm/Edge! Introduction


Published on

Social CRM, It’s a philosophy, it’s a strategy – now a product

Social customer engagement from lead generation to closure and way beyond
Social selling techniques and social CRM technology constitute this new solution. But be warned – this is not a refried version of CRM. This is an all new product developed from ground up for sales engagement in the new world. If you are looking for a new address database with your old 7 step sales process – this would be the wrong place. Expect a system that is as different as CRM was back in the days when it was introduced.

Speaker: Axel Schultze, CEO Xeequa Corp,


The Idea and concept of Xeesm/Edge!
Sales objective setting and sales process alignment
Lead generation with Xeesm/Flights!

Sales managers, buying customers, channel partners
