Perfect Followup ... made easy!™
Sales Automation Manager (SAM) adds to ACT! the power to automatically schedule activities and generate correspondence according to patterns (called "campaigns") that you define.
ACT! is a great contact manager, but it requires that you manually create follow-up activities after a customer interaction (i.e.; a "touch point"). As you probably know, it’s nearly impossible for a busy salesperson to do follow-up consistently and well.
Because SAM lets you predefine follow-up steps for any situation at a touch point, SAM, unlike any other ACT! add-on, finally gives you Perfect Followup…made easy!®.
SAM's goal is to "automate everything that can be, so the salesperson/ACT user can be most efficient". Our Sales Automation Manager ACT! addon finally gives you “true sales automation" with ACT!
Here are some of the automation features that Sales Automation Manager provides:
Sales Automation Manager's features can help you implement campaigns like these:
Sales Automation Manager was originally designed to automate the sales process, and its powerful features can also implement marketing automation. Here’s a recipe for achieving "total marketing automation" with SAM:
SAM’s flexibility lets you customize campaigns, including “drip” campaigns. For example, SAM can send out personalized letters from your company President, from the CTO, from a specific salesperson, or from a sales engineer.
With careful design, you can reserve your valuable direct human interaction for only the most important clients or the most important touch points.
A Completely Automated Sales and Marketing Solution
If your goal is to implement a fully automated marketing and/or sales automation solution, you can save money by purchasing the Northwoods Automation Bundle.
Sales Automation Manager can also automate the workflow of a whole company. Workflow is just a sequence of steps. Because Sales Automation Manager can look at database fields and make decisions about "next steps," it can automatically create Calls, Meetings, and To-dos, and it can guide each customer through the critical steps needed to execute an order. For example: many of our customers use SAM to automate mortgage loan fulfillment steps.
Sample Campaigns Included
Sales Automation Manager includes the following sample campaigns:
Optional Integration With Swiftpage Email
Northwoods has integrated Sales Automation Manager with the Swiftpage email service. So you can now send your emails using EITHER your own SMTP mailbox, OR via the Swiftpage service. Swiftpage is an email marketing solution fully integrated into ACT!. Swiftpage gives you the tools to create templates using a simple online editor or allows you to import your own HTML, send to your contacts directly from ACT! and track opens, clicks, bounces suppressed and more.
The combination of SAM with Swiftpage means ACT! users can now get the combined benefits of SAM’s true sales/marketing automation with the other benefits of the Swiftpage email service. NOTE: Swiftpage support is only available in SAM for ACT 2007 (or later). A separate subscription is required to use Swiftpage email.
We'd really like to simply sit down with you and explain SAM. So--next best case--we've recorded a series of videos you can play on your PC that explain SAM. These introductory videos can be found on the top right hand side of this page.
