Hyper-Growth Companies Leverage Infer to Power Data-Driven Sales and Marketing

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA – August 13, 2014 – Infer Inc., a leading provider of predictive applications that help companies win more customers, today announced a 150 percent increase in its customer base over the past quarter. Infer is now computing thirteen million predictions every month for some of the fastest-growing companies on the planet, including new customers such as Cloudera, Mixpanel, Optimizely, Yesware and ZipRecruiter.

“We’re organizing for rapid scale, and Infer’s predictive scoring is critical to our success,” said Matt Cooley, chief revenue officer at Mixpanel, a leader in mobile analytics. Rafael Alenda, vice president of online and brand marketing at software analytics companyNew Relic, added, “Infer scales nicely with our hyper-growth business. In short order, it has generated hundreds of thousands of predictions that have helped drive net new customers and revenue.”
Infer uses external signals from the web and advanced data science to help its customers prioritize the sales and marketing leads that are most likely to convert. “Infer is able to automatically research and identify our marketing-qualified leads (MQLs),” said Ash Alhashim, director of sales enablement at Optimizely, a leading web optimization platform. “That saves our sales reps time and energy, but just as important, it gives us an objective way to measure lead quality.”

Another new customer, Mindflash, uses Infer to predict loyal customers for its online training platform. In under a year, Infer has helped the company increase monthly recurring revenue 50 percent by better prioritizing incoming sales leads and optimizing marketing tactics. “Since bringing in Infer, our whole business has pivoted around predictive lead scoring and it’s enabling us to create a better customer experience,” said Randhir Vieira, vice president of products and marketing at Mindflash. “Rather than spreading our resources thin, we can focus on the relationships that add the most value.”

More information on Mindflash is included in Infer’s new customer case study, and additional data-driven plays and ROI frameworks are detailed in Infer’s recently published Guide to Predictive Lead Scoring.
