Salt Lake City, Utah

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Global Connections of Overland Park, Kansas adds Dashboard Module to their TrackResults Analytics Toolkit.

Trackresults has added their newest custom dashboard functionality to longtime client, Global Connections’ analytics toolkit. This feature allows directors, managers, and team leaders to create a custom screen that displays exactly the data information they deem most important and the Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) referenced most frequently.

Steve Grecco, Global Connections Director of Sales & Marketing explained the importance of this feature to his operation:

“Sales is the lifeblood of the business, and as such deserves all the attention and focus I can give it. TrackResults allows this crucial department to identify issues and improve…which has a huge impact on a company’s ability to grow. Custom dashboards allow my Sales Managers to see red flags and identify trends that can hurt sales or identify opportunities that are otherwise missed. We intend to use this feature as a motivational tool throughout the sales department.”

TrackResults Dashboard module is designed to allow for graphic data visualization of multiple KPI’s on one screen. It allows users to create their own dashboards containing the information they deem vital to their operations as opposed forcing them to use a standard data set. This feature was built with the non-technical type of end user in mind, and does not require any IT expertise or support to design, modify, share, or configure.

Global Connections will be using custom dashboards in the corporate office as well as 19 sales locations nationwide for both new frontline member sales and their especially successful legacy member upgrades.

TrackResults, the only Timeshare BI platform releases “Pending Sale v2.0” Analytics Module

TrackResults has conquered the longest-standing challenge in Timeshare sales. TrackResults now offers the ability to identify the rate at which pending sales come good, the metrics for successes and failures and ability to create a roadmap for minimizing fallout.

Typically sales managers report “pending sales”, and find themselves empty handed for metrics that assist them in making these deals “come good”, No current tools existed to optimize that effort and validate the reality between throwing numbers at the wall and creating strategies that help identify business rules for pending sales. TrackResults analytics allows you to compare the performance of pending sales by almost any measure; volume won or lost, ratio of losses to wins, all tied to specific criteria such as inventory type, deal size, client demographics, and count of days spent in pending status. Perhaps most importantly, this module measures how individual agents and VLO’s perform with these key criteria. These KPI’s allow a comparison of salespeople, closers, and customer demographics to provide a safer, more predictable way to create strategies to close pending sales.

Ryan Williams, TrackResults Vice President of Business Development explained: “TrackResults client, Grupo Vidanta was already using tour and sales analytics and requested the ability to run similar analytics on pending sales in order to better capture profits from those deals by better tracking and follow-up”.

Todd, TrackResults founder stated: “The metric I found especially interesting was the average time to come good or fail” for certain types of pending sales which allowed sales agents and VLO’s to steer and frame the deal into a higher performance rate of  coming good.”

Grupo Vidanta, arguably Mexico’s largest Timeshare company and Global Travel Network, a Global Connections Inc. travel club distributor, have both tested this module and recorded similar measurable success. Vidanta, with six major sales centers across Mexico has seen a 6 percent decrease in “lost” pending sales. Global Travel Network realized an 11% increase in “penders come good” using this module.
The bottom line is that this module provides lift in profits for the developer and most importantly benefits the customer by structuring the deal in a way that statistically provides a higher rate of “come goods”. .

TrackResults will host Charity Poker Tournament at ARDA World 2017

TrackResults, the Timeshare Industry’s leading Business Intelligence software provider will be an exhibitor at the largest gathering of Timeshare Industry professionals, the ARDA World Conference being held in New Orleans from March 26th through 30th this year. TrackResults will also be hosting their annual Charity Poker Tournament benefitting Send Me On Vacation on the evening of Sunday, March 26th at 8:00 PM as the kickoff event of the conference.

ARDA World is considered the “must attend” event of the year. Ryan Williams, TrackResults VP of business Development will appear on the panel “Data is Gold” as an expert in the value and usage of resort sales and marketing data.

In general, the upgrade included up-to-date security, field level auditing, and additional flexibility to add new fields in the system.

The clients included in this upgrade are actively engaged in both club and timeshare sales and have successfully run their business on TrackResults for 5 years or more.

Ryan Williams, Vice President of Business Development had this to say: “These clients are entrepreneurs that work hard and manage all their sales through TrackResults. They operate more efficiently in comparison to their counterparts in their industry space. Many bought TrackResults and stay with us because the fees are low, the system easy to use, and the analytics give managers insight to drive continual improvement.
