Powerful Change Analytics

With the Cloud9 Pipeline Accelerator, sales managers gain complete pipeline visibility, anytime and anywhere - including critical, real-time "what's changed" information. By employing Cloud9's patented Change Analytics engine, the Cloud9 Pipeline Accelerator reveals data that simply isn't viewable in Salesforce. And what you can't see, you can't proactively manage.

Facilitating the concept of "dynamic pipeline management", the Cloud9 Pipeline Accelerator automatically adjusts to any reorganization or reassignment and provides the insight you need to react quickly to changing conditions in the pipeline to optimize performance.

What's the big diff?

The big difference is in the time-based difference between pipeline states. Salesforce reports just show a start and end state but there's a lot of movement you can't see if you can't compare where your pipeline was last week to where it is today. The resulting insights in new opportunities, slipped deals, and closed/won and closed/lost deals provide sales leaders with the exact information they need to take proactive steps - before the quarter ends.

Uncover Trends - Compare current forecast and pipeline realities to any other date in time and analyze by week, month or quarter.

Detect and Correct - Quickly find and resolve issues proactively, and coach your team to better performance in real time.

Prioritize Activities - Prioritize sales efforts and optimize resources by focusing only on what's changed in the pipeline.
