NewVoiceMedia Join the Marketo Partner Ecosystem to Improve Sales and Marketing Effectiveness

New integrated telephony solution provides marketers with greater transparency of the value creation process

14 November 2012: NewVoiceMedia today announces that it has joined Marketo LaunchPoint, the most complete ecosystem of compelling solutions for marketers, to provide its clients with the ability to close the value gap between marketing and sales. The solution created from NewVoiceMedia's ContactWorld for Salesforce and Marketo's marketing platform, will improve lead generation through an integrated telephony system which enables lead prioritisation and tracking.

Turning potential leads into sales is a difficult and expensive task. NewVoiceMedia joining Marketo's partner ecosystem will help its clients by taking the guesswork out of lead generation, and instead make the process more effective by targeting potential leads when they are interested and engaged with a business' marketing. The solution will make it easier for marketers to identify and build compelling cloud services that have been demonstrated to be complementary and add value to the marketing and sales process.

It is estimated that a massive 70% of sales revenue is lost[1] between the marketing and sales stage. The NewVoiceMedia and Marketo combination enable users to take control and create a closed loop whereby interested leads generated by marketing are captured instantly, resulting in a higher rate of sales and giving businesses an insight into what customers want. The simplicity of the system also means it saves businesses time and cost, which previously would have been spent following up the wrong leads.

Jonathan Gale, CEO of NewVoiceMedia explains: "Our partnership with Marketo is enabling NewVoiceMedia to improve and personalise customer experience further, starting with the purchasing decision. In a world where markets are inundated with products and services, and uninformed cold calling is rife, the task of turning leads into sales is a tricky business. It is becoming increasingly important to understand potential customers' wants and needs before making contact. By partnering with Marketo we're able to provide our clients with the insight and ability to contact potential customers whilst they are engaged with an informative, personalised phone call."

Robin Bordoli, VP partner ecosystem of Marketo comments: "It's great to see Marketo being used in such an innovative and important way. NewVoiceMedia truly understands the needs of its clients and is passing on that insight through this partnership. Its current cloud technology is enabling customers to take advantage of this insight instantly, with fully informed contact centre staff contacting potential leads whilst their interest is still high, turning it into a sale."

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
