Borealis Announces Sales Automation Training Alliance with Tech Resource Group; Arsenal Customers Receive an Easy-to-Use, Rapidly Deployable Sales Automation System and Expert Sales Force Training.
Arsenal is an easy-to-use, quickly deployable sales automation system, and Tech Resource Group, Inc. (TRG) is the industry expert in sales automation training. The alliance between the two sales automation leaders will benefit users, providing a system that can be rolled out to them more quickly than any other product on the market, and training from experienced instructors who focus on keeping their time out of the field to a minimum.
"In my experience, when sales automation efforts fail, it is not because the system doesn't work, it's because the sales force doesn't use it," said Shekar Swamy, president of American Technology Corp., a leading sales force automation and mobile computing consulting company, and a Borealis solution provider. "Current sales automation products require lengthy implementation time and extensive training because they roll out a system that includes everything but the kitchen sink, overwhelming sales force professionals who simply do not use it.
"Arsenal is a unique, easy-to-use system that provides sales professionals with only what they really need. By combining Arsenal's next generation approach to sales automation with TRG's quality sales force training, I believe user acceptance will be the highest, by far, of any sales automation system out there," said Swamy.
"TRG has successfully completed over 70 sales force automation projects and trained over 40,000 sales professionals around the world," said TRG CEO and Chairman Larry V. Laws. "Arsenal's inherent rapid deployment and ease of use will expedite our training process of sales organizations and will allow us to continue to gain momentum in the sales automation market."
Arsenal's rapid deployment and ease of customization makes the product especially well suited for distribution through an extensive network of VARs and System Integrators who will provide implementation, customization and vertical market expertise. Borealis is the only sales automation provider that will not provide product implementation services but will instead focus on support of their implementation providers.
"TRG gives our solution providers a tremendous professional training resource for dealing with even the largest sales force automation rollouts," said Ed Murphy, vice president of marketing at Borealis. "Our goal is 100% customer success, and TRG helps Borealis solution providers cover all the bases, from clear goal setting and needs analysis to application design and user acceptance."
