Does the weather affect the chance of getting a prospect on the phone?

XANT CEO and Founder Dave Elkington thought it might and decided to test his theory.

XANT is commonly known for its dialer software, PowerDialer, that has helped customers improve contact rates by up to 65 percent, increase call volumes by up to eight times, enhance contact analysis and boost sales team motivation.

Through its service of providing dialer software to thousands of salespeople across the country, XANT has collected and sequenced millions of anonymized profiles and sales transactions.

The answer to Elkington’s question is yes. Weather does impact a salesperson’s chance of getting a prospect on the phone.

In the latest addition, for example, you can now enter the date of a tradeshow, June 6, 2012, and have ELF generate a campaign for exactly 3 weeks before the start of the date. This new feature allows campaigns to be more specific and more powerful in terms of relating the campaigns to events.

Cut Lead Costs in Half and Increase Sales Revenue by 105 Percent 0

A client of ours recently increased their sales revenue by 105 percent by implementing PowerDialer.

Do I have your attention, yet?

Using a standard predictive dialer, our client was lucky if they made 25 outbound calls a day. By simply implementing our dialer solution, PowerDialer, among other XANT products, they easily increased their average outbound calls a day to between 75 and 100. That’s a three to four times improvement over the previous technology!

If the revenue increase didn’t get your attention, surely that did!
