HOUSTON (March 15, 2012) – ChaiONE is excited to announce the launch of Game Plan, a new mobile sales enablement and marketing platform and iPad app integrated with multiple services including Box, Sharepoint, Dropbox, Amazon S3, Google docs and more. Enabling sales teams of any size to access critical sales information on the go and allowing managers to track usefulness of materials, Game Plan positions sales and marketing professionals to more effectively represent their brands, products, and services in the field.

According to Forrester Research Inc. and IDC Sales Advisory Service, companies are on average spending over $135,000 per salesperson each year in general sales enablement and support. Seven hours per week are spent looking for relevant information for sales calls and only 10 percent of the materials are available in a useful format. Game Plan closes this crucial gap.

“We are becoming acutely aware that there is a costly disconnect between marketing departments and what actually goes on in the field with sales efforts. With the consumerization of IT, more and more employees are bringing their personal cloud storage to the workplace, while also demanding access to their corporate Sharepoint accounts,” said Gaurav Khandelwal, the chief executive officer of ChaiONE and founder of Game Plan. “Game Plan connects marketing and sales divisions, allowing robust sales teams to use their iPad as an effective sales tool.”

Game Plan is a sales enablement web application and iPad app that boasts three core features:
Instant aggregation from the cloud to iPads. Game Plan connects to several cloud-storage and collaboration-based solutions such as Box, SharePoint, DropBox, Amazon S3, and more. Users can securely download the files they need to their iPad with a simple tap.
Organize files locally and present on the iPad.? Users can create custom “game plans” on the iPad to reorient existing materials into strategic folders for easy retrieval. With “game plans,” teams can collect, organize and access specific PDFs, videos, PowerPoint, and Keynote presentations (and several other file formats) that are most useful to a specific sale and present them in full-screen glory on the iPad presentation tool.
Analyze and report on file usage. Game Plan records and stores the files that get used, by whom, and how often. Sales and marketing departments can have true line-of-sight into what is being used in the field, what is working, and what is not working. Knowing the close rate on a particular sales tool versus another can result in higher close rates.

“The innovative Game Plan app makes it possible for sales and business development teams to conveniently draw on the specific marketing materials they need without much preparation,” said Susan Saurage-Altenloh, president of Saurage Research, a full-service marketing research firm based in Houston, TX. “The information is easy to access, no matter where it is stored, and available as needed.”

“We are only scratching the surface of what the Game Plan presentation app will do in future releases,” says Khandelwal. “The near-term product roadmap includes integration and several true sales enablement solution features.”

Consumers and sales professionals can create a free trial account at GamePlanHQ.com. and visit the Apple App Store to download the product for free. The 30-day trial period allows users to connect with an unlimited number of storage connections and share their files with an unlimited number of other Game Plan users.
