Newly Redesigned Selltis™ Sales 5.0 Automates Entire Customer and Partner Relationship Lifecycle Using Unique Hyperrelational™ Technology

NEW ORLEANS (January 15, 2007) – Selltis, LLC, a provider of on-demand customer relationship management (CRM) software for end-to-end sales process automation, today launched the next-generation version of the company’s namesake CRM solution, Selltis™ Sales 5.0, which is delivered via a hosted, software as a service (SaaS) business model.

Expanding on the company’s unique, Hyperrelational™ technology that offers “many-to-many” data linking, the new Selltis Sales 5.0 “Link The Way You Think™” approach provides the capability to proactively manage complex, team sales environments. The Selltis Sales platform includes tools to automate marketing campaigns and lead management as well as quoting and field service.

“Our revolutionary approach towards Sales Force Automation/Customer Relationship Management (SFA/CRM) solves mission critical business problems, especially within sales organizations of manufacturing companies, independent sales rep agencies and distributors,” said David Erath, CEO, Selltis, LLC. “In addition, our Hyperrelational connectivity offers a depth of information that is unmatched in the industry and provides the capability to view all connected relationships on one easily viewable dashboard.”

Available now, Selltis Sales 5.0 offers a Web-based technology platform using a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model that bridges the gap between the sales organization and IT with its rich feature set that satisfies the needs of both groups. With the release of Selltis Sales 5.0, the company is also expanding its reach from small-to-medium sized (SMB) technical/industrial companies to larger companies in those sectors as well as targeting other relevant vertical markets.

According to Selltis, LLC founder and president Brian Gardner, and the technology architect behind the new version, Selltis Sales 5.0 offers a totally re-designed web-based GUI and transcends across organizations by giving its customers a system to manage the front end of the sales process while simultaneously offering visibility to share and leverage that knowledge across all departments in various locations 24/7. Selltis Sales 5.0 can be readily integrated with client third-party back-end systems to facilitate data access and interchange.

The Selltis Sales 5.0 model embraces collaboration with channel partners through a new Partner Relationship Management (PRM) module that introduces multi-tiered functionality and allows manufacturers to seamlessly communicate with reps and distributors and maximize sales effectiveness throughout the sales channel. “Within the sales management cycle, users are rarely dealing with one person in a factory/industrial environment that serves as the sole decision-maker – Selltis Sales 5.0 places all sales personnel, prospect contacts, and channel partners all on the same page,” said Gardner. “In addition, manufacturers can easily and securely regulate parameters of the information that a distributor or rep can view using the product’s selective data access features.”

Key Differentiators of Selltis Sales 5.0
Selltis Sales 5.0 provides industrial and technical organizations with an end-to-end sales process automation solution that goes beyond traditional CRM. “Unlike the competition, Selltis Sales 5.0 offers an integrated quoting tool in a CRM product. Distributors can create quotes from Selltis Sales 5.0 using product specs and part numbers and then build out reports,” added Gardner. “No other out of the box CRM solution provides an alerts system, in-depth opportunity history – all from one desktop and ready for viewing by all groups associated with the opportunity.”

The multiple view desktop capability sets Selltis Sales 5.0 apart from other CRM products and offers tab and/or mini views in an attractive dashboard that are all interrelated to a specific company. Selltis Sales 5.0 offers “many-to-many” linking and clearly presents all relevant related information — no other web based application provides so much information on one dashboard. This 3D linking offers built in informational scripts for all product codes and the system can even intuitively provide lists of critical questions to ask for specific products – this capability is valuable for inside sales, new hires and customer service representatives.

Available via download or within a hosted environment for $85/user/month and no long-term commitment, users can experience total CRM and more. “Sales organizations would expect to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars per month to reap the rewards of this total sales process automation solution,” said Gardner. “Selltis Sales 5.0 truly drives the sales process and is a tailor made system for a team selling approach. Not only is the system affordable but implementation time can be as little as 20 minutes to have a company fully functional on Selltis Sales 5.0.”

Leading Industrial Organization Receives Significant Benefits from Selltis Sales 5.0

The RG Group, a distributor and manufacturer of innovative motion control and fluid handling solutions, has been a Selltis customer for the past four years, using the solution as the backbone of its CRM efforts. According to IT Manager Bob Sherick, RG Group has been beta testing Selltis 5.0 since October 2007 and the migration from the previous version was seamless. “Over the course of one weekend, we transitioned all the data into the system and ready for use on Monday morning. One of the huge benefits we have gained is the ability to access product data in real time,” he added.

Offering a sales/marketing perspective of RG Group’s use of Selltis, Rich Freeh, EVP of Sales & Marketing, notes “Selltis Sales 5.0 is similar to turning on the lights in a dark room by shining a spotlight on the sales process and those opportunities that are generating revenue versus ones that are not,” he added. “Our migration to this new web-based version has enabled us to segment our sales efforts by target markets using Selltis 5.0 to identify opportunities and leads. We now have the capability to have discussions with vendors based on the tangible reality of opportunities and view them on one executive dashboard that displays the actual activities and leads generated by them – this has been invaluable for our distribution partners and manufacturers that we represent. RG Group is built on maintaining good relationships vendors and Selltis serves as an absolutely outstanding tool in that capacity.”
