eXalt's cloud-powered "channel sales empowerment (CSE) platform, offers a proven formula to sell more, more profitably by growing sales and lowering operational costs:  

  • CSE empowers salespeople at Intel's resellers to quote without engineering assistance.  CSE's goof proof rules engine provides a virtual sales coach that stands over the shoulder of every sales rep.  CSE also incorporates complete and up-to-date sales and marketing content so that all expertise to execute a sale is never more than one click away including: training, solution playbooks and promotions. 
  • CSE makes resellers more profitable quoting Intel over other brands:  Metrics from other eXalt deployments have shown that eXalt Cloud-powered Resellers surge ahead of the competition.  Channel Partners using eXalt CSE portals have reported accelerated sales velocity up to 25X.  Many sales reps have been able to increase their attach rates of margin making options by 2-3X over traditional sales methods, while cutting the time to quote from hours to just 15 minutes.

Intel is leveraging eXalt's patented CSE platform to reach reseller sales desks with an engaging and easy to use rules engine that guides them to build rich solutions.  In one glance sales reps can get solution-building guidance, promotional information, pricing and training information.  Rich dashboards advise sales reps on Total Cost of Ownership, Rack Space and Power Requirements removing dozens of hours from the sales process.  This rich sales experience makes Intel easy to do business with and helps resellers simultaneously grow sales and lower expenses

"Intel truly understands the power of eXalt's CSE platform, and how to leverage it so their resellers and integrators can create customized solutions for specific accounts in a fraction of the time of traditional high-touch sales methods," said Leslie Swanson, President/CEO of eXalt Solutions. "We look forward to expanding our relationship with Intel over the coming year."

Intel plans to make the portal available (serverconfigurator.intel.com) worldwide to Intel's resellers in Q1 2013.
