The Jones Company / Consort Homes Help Sales Simplicity Reach A Major Milestone, As The 325th Customer of Sales Simplicity’s Enterprise Software
Chandler, Ariz. — August 8, 2012 — Sales Simplicity Software, the widely acknowledged leader in sales automation, dynamic content management, and reporting for the homebuilder and real-estate sectors, today announced that it has achieved a major milestone, with the sale of its 325th enterprise software system to The Jones Company of Tennessee and its sister company, Consort Homes. The Jones Company of Tennessee builds in the Nashville, TN area, and Consort Homes builds in the St. Louis area. By reaching this milestone of 325 sales, Sales Simplicity cements its position as the market share leader in the U.S. and Canada among production homebuilders.
Through the use of Sales Simplicity, The Jones Company of Tennessee and Consort Homes will access the most-award-winning sales automation / CRM system in North America. Each Sales Simplicity enterprise system is used by a production homebuilder, whose housing starts range upwards of thousands per year.
The achievement of this Sales Simplicity milestone is the latest in a string of positive announcements for the Company, including top industry awards and technology enhancements. Sales Simplicity recently released a new intuitive CRM system, offering features similar to SalesForce.com, which is now integrated into Sales Simplicity’s award-winning, cloud-based, sales-automation platform. As part of this latest enhancement, Sales Simplicity now offers cross-platform integration with Microsoft Exchange Server for calendar tasks and appointments, and deeper linkages into Facebook, Twitter, and other social media systems.
“Sales Simplicity has defied the ‘down market’ to set records with its enterprise sales,” said Barry Forbes, Sales Simplicity’s President. “One of the principle reasons for our success is that our software brings higher margins to builders like The Jones Company and Consort Homes, by optimizing leads, converting leads to sales, and making the options-selection process more profitable.”
