InsideSales.com acquires iHance
InsideSales.com has acquired iHance, which is a software company that offers e-mail tracking and syncing technologies so that sales teams can close deals quicker. iHance’s solutions helps accelerate the sales cycle by providing visibility into customer interactions with e-mails sent from sales teams.
The real-time visibility allows sales associations to respond immediately to buying signals like downloading an attachment or visiting a company website. The terms of the deal were undisclosed.
“InsideSales.com will bring the same data-driven approach to sales emails that it has already brought to sales calls through our award-winning PowerDialer,” said Dave Elkington, InsideSales.com CEO and founder. “The powerful email tracking and integration solutions developed by iHance, and used by over 650 customers, will enhance the growing arsenal of InsideSales.com technologies which accelerate sales for many of the world’s most recognizable brands.”
iHance’s Vision program works on all e-mail clients, including Microsoft Outlook and Gmail. InsideSales.com will offer the e-mail tracking solution for $49 per user per month. This price includes the Absolute Automation email synching service. Absolute Automation syncs all e-mail conversations into Salesforce.com.
“iHance is excited to join forces with InsideSales.com to accelerate sales through predictive analytics and science,” added iHance CEO Christopher da Cunha. “These patented email solutions not only fill a pressing need for sales reps who perform prospecting, but for quota-carrying inside sales and field sales reps responsible for closing deals. They are also useful tools for professionals who work in customer support, billing and collections, account management and many other business functions.”
