Privately held Pavilion Technologies sells model-based software that improves the manufacturing process for specialized manufacturers, such as chemical and cement makers. The company's Web site and marketing materials say Pavilion commits to delivering the highest ROI in the industry, offering a proprietary methodology that ensures "predictable results."
Clearly, Pavilion knows how important it is for businesses to track ROI. But two years ago, its marketing department realized it was having trouble tracking its own ROI. Hence, it was difficult to know how effective its programs were or to justify to management that additional funds were needed.
Pavilion ultimately found a solution through a software system that helps monitor all prospects who visit its Web site. The visitors are categorized and put in a comprehensive profile that is automatically distributed to Pavilion's sales team, and salespersons engage the leads at just the right time to close deals. The software has also helped the marketing department improve efficiency, double the number of yearly email campaigns it conducts, and better track its ROI.
