VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and DENVER – October 25, 2007 – Maximizer Software Inc. (TSX: MAX) and CanDoGo™ today announced an exclusive CRM partnership at Maximizer’s Global Business Partner Conference 2007 to provide small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with on-demand sales and professional coaching expertise. With this new relationship, Maximizer customers will have the ability to access advice via the Web from leading experts on business or professional topics such as sales coaching, power proposals, leadership skills and motivation. A General availability of the joint offering is scheduled for November 2007.
“Employees within so many organizations wear multiple hats and are faced with numerous constraints. Immediate access to the right information and guidance is critical,” said Dave Batt, CEO of CanDoGo. “Our new partnership with Maximizer delivers expert advice in a new way for SMBs, helping these organizations and their employees improve business execution.”
CanDoGo has secured exclusive rights to deliver this advice and coaching from more than 120 authors, speakers and professional trainers including Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins and Tony Parinello, in an entirely new way. The company converts traditional long-form material into short, meaningful advice, known as ‘CanDoGo InsightsTM, which will be delivered in text, audio and video formats anywhere, anytime. Maximizer customers will be able to seek CanDoGo advice directly through the CRM software interface.
“Based on conversations and research with the small and mid-market communities, we see an increased demand for in-context knowledge for professionals to more effectively do their jobs,” said Laurie McCabe, vice president for SMB Insights and Business Solutions at Access Markets International (AMI) Partners. “This joint offering has great market opportunity, particularly because it’s offered in conjunction with a CRM interface that professionals are already using every day.”
“The real winners in this new partnership are the sales and business professionals who use Maximizer,” said Peter Callaghan, Chief Sales Officer of Maximizer Software. “The most significant barrier to a salesperson’s productivity is the lack of access to relevant, best-practices information. Now they will have it on-demand, exactly when they need it.”
