The Annuitas Group and BroadPoint Technologies Announce Strategic Alliance
Lead Management and Business Consultant Industry Leaders Partner to Provide End-to-End Services to Clients
February 23, 2010, Grand Rapids, MI – The Annuitas Group, a recognized leader in lead management process consulting, today announced a strategic alliance with BroadPoint Technologies, a leading provider of business consulting services in the Mid-Atlantic. The alliance enables both consulting firms to provide end-to-end sales and marketing services and expand key offerings to clients.
Keys to the alliance are each company’s unique value propositions. The Annuitas Group has developed a process-based methodology that evaluates a company’s lead management program and its use of marketing automation software. BroadPoint’s expertise lies within their knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics CRM and its role within the sales process. Combined, the companies have an offering that spans both sales and marketing processes, identifying gaps and opportunities within. For customers, this means a holistic view and evaluation of their sales and marketing lead programs and an improved return on their investment.
“Sales play an integral role in the development and implementation of a holistic lead management process,” said Carlos Hidalgo, President of The Annuitas Group. “With customers currently running Microsoft Dynamics CRM, it was important to find a partner who understands the value of a process- based approach to lead management. BroadPoint Technologies clearly demonstrates this and we are excited to help our customers obtain the most value from their investments.”
”Many companies continue to struggle with the disconnect between marketing and sales, and as a result, leads falling through the cracks. In the current economic environment, our clients can’t afford to miss one opportunity,” noted Lee Raely, BroadPoint CEO. “Our relationship with The Annuitas Group provides an approach that maximizes the value of marketing automation to improve sales performance quickly.”
The partnership will include referrals, co-marketing opportunities and co-development of service and solution offerings.
