Share on LinkedIn

Vancouver, WA, Sept. 5, 2013 – Confio Software, makers of the award-winning Ignite database performance monitoring tools, is rapidly growing and expanding its market share globally. Because of this growth, the company’s sales managers needed to gain efficiency in their outbound sales and gain direct access to top IT decision makers.

To meet this challenge, Confio turned to DiscoverOrg,, a three-time Inc. 500 recipient and provider of sales and marketing intelligence tools used by the top IT vendors in the country. By leveraging DiscoverOrg’s Enterprise, Mid-Market and SMB datasets and its IT Org Charts, Confio saw its sales increase 15 percent in the first year while realizing a 30 percent gain in sales efficiency.

DiscoverOrg enabled Confio’s technology sales reps to bypass gatekeepers and get in direct contact with those who have the authority to approve IT purchases. Additional details about Confio’s success story can be found here:

Another deciding factor for Confio in choosing DiscoverOrg over an incumbent competitor was its contact location mapping feature. This allows reps in the field to see a visual representation of where IT sales leads are in a given area and be more efficient and effective in terms of setting up technology sales calls.

“Because IT sales require a very complex sales process, it’s critical that reps identify all the stakeholders involved in the buying decision early on in the sales cycle,” said Jon Freeman, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Service for Confio. “This is not an easy task as corporate hierarchies often prevent sharing this kind of vital information. With DiscoveryOrg our reps can forge direct access paths to the right decision markers without working through complex internal structures.”

Other benefits realized by Confio with DiscoverOrg include:

• 25% of the contacts initiated by Confio’s sales reps were the result of using DiscoverOrg

• The IT Org Charts helped Confio sales reps identify key decision-making personnel at both existing and new accounts, and book more appointments with them.

• Confio reps were also able to expand their reach and footprint within existing and new accounts using the IT Org Charts.

“Due to the highly competitive nature of IT sales, reps need every advantage they can get to surface opportunities, find the right contact, book time with them and close the deal,” said Henry Schuck, co-founder and Chief Revenue Officer of DiscoverOrg. “Because our datasets provide unmatched accuracy – 98 percent have email addresses and 92 percent include direct-dial numbers – and our IT Org charts give a birds-eye view into a department’s reporting structure, Confio’s IT sales reps have been better able to overcome obstacles and meet with the right decision-maker at the right time.”
