XANT was the first company to combine a web-based lead management CRM database with on-demand telephony tools like a dialer and voice messaging. They created the industry around immediate response technologies for web leads as a result of research done in conjunction with Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern and Sloan School of Management at MIT. Its PowerDialer for Salesforce embeds its flagship phone dialer software inside of the world’s leading on-demand CRM solution, salesforce.com
XANT stays involved in the community with its community outreach program. Current projects include helping non-profits like the George Wythe University – Glenn Beck at the Capitol event, and the DME Medical Research Foundation for infant and pre-natal cardiac research.
XANT was the first hosted lead management solution with built-in auto dialer technology. XANT also pioneered the field of lead response management (LRM) and gained prominence with joint research by Kellogg and MIT on the impact of immediate response to leads. Omniture beta-tested the integration of the XANT flagship PowerDialer product into Salesforce.com, which was soon followed by Dun & Bradstreet, Infopia and nearly twenty other companies using the product since production was announced at Dreamforce ’08. XANT also announced a voice messaging tool called JabberDog for Salesforce and an inbound screen-pop product called ResponsePop for Salesforce.com. To learn more visit https://www.XANT.
