According to a recent study conducted by Babener and Associates, legitimate personal network marketing — as opposed to illegitimate marketing, such as pyramid schemes — is on the rise. Specifically, one in 10 households now participate in network marketing part time, including Avon and Tupperware sales, to legal services and vitamins.
With this information in hand, Intelli-Touch Apps (ITA (News - Alert)) believes that it will become "instrumental" to the success of individual network marketers, ultimately impacting the industry in a meaningful way.
The consumer version of ITA's IVQ-Business Assistant provides personal network dealers with enhanced productivity and automated call screening and routing. The app also offers in-call recording and the ability to produce and distribute customer sales support videos. Meanwhile, the business version of the app has plenty to offer corporate customers such as essential sales tools, training and announcements.
"IVQ-Business Assistant is a revolutionary tool for those selling through Network and Multi-Level Marketing," said James Steiner, chief marketing officer at ITA, in a statement. "Intelli-Touch Apps will help them organize their communications by tailoring their call routing, voicemail, and messaging to the individual contact resulting in increased productivity and revenue."
Other features offered by the IVQ-Business Assistant include: automated, real-time customized call screening; the ability to assign different voicemail greetings to contacts; an On-Demand Sales Library, which offers training; and the exclusive ITA Com-Portal, which captures client feedback immediately to optimize sales and marketing programs.
Intelli-Touch Apps completed its second round of funding in October, which led to the release of the IVQ-Business Assistant app. According to the company, this type of app is highly in demand in a number of industries, including legal, credit, insurance, medical, financial and the not-for-profit sector.
With Intelli-Touch, companies can easily train, equip and motivate their sales force.
