CloseFox’s beta was launched in November 2014 with the name Dog & Pony Data. Since that time it has been a full time dynamic research projects that has give birth to our new brand CloseFox.

Inside Sales is the new viral product. Well, the reality is that viral companies and viral revenue never actually existed. Any successful B2B company has successfully had to implement sales strategies. Unfortunately for many entrepreneurs the mass media deemed it sexier to have really hot products versus effective business models and business strategies. On average 17% of the workforce at top growing companies are salespeople. Here is a break down of some of the brands you know:
- Twitter: 14.5% of employees salespeople
- LinkedIn: 15.7% of employees salespeople
- Salesforce: 32% of employees salespeople
- Box: 26% of employees salespeople
The concept of the cheezy do or die sales professional is dead. Well at least in the technology world. I’m sure that they are kicking around less disruptive industries. Today’s sales teams are intelligent, responsive, and understand their customer’s needs. Inside sales jobs and career demand are up 54%.
Microsoft Office 365 Integration
We have decided to create a clear focus on the new office 365. Although known for faulty launches and legacy software, Microsoft has really killed it. CloseFox is the first inside sales analytics tool in the Office 365 app store. With “3.5 million paying customers, each shelling out $99.99 for a 12-month” subscription there is nothing but a big future ahead. In fact “Microsoft’s cloud-based Office 365 is the company’s fastest growing commercial product ever, and adoption shows no sign of stalling”. Moving forward we are focusing on other Microsoft partnerships.
To date, having the ability to implement a data driven strategy has been the responsibility of data scientists. Completely ignoring the need of day to day sales people. Inside sales teams spend enormous amounts of time pursuing the wrong prospects and doing research that isn’t their job. They already send out a lot of emails and content that can generate relevant data.
With the most functional dashboard, accurate data, and relevant analytics in the space, CloseFox is focused on being the easiest way for sales teams to utilize behavioral and big data visualization to directly influence their daily effectiveness. While most analytics tools either deliver simple vanity metrics or rely on complicated business intelligence. CloseFox delivers analytics that actually impact your daily sales cycle without the complexity.

We utilize sales and marketing content to better track prospect engagement and deliver easy to use analytics.
