Obtaining timely data is usually key to understanding which strategies and promotions are worthwhile investments. SalesTrac, Inc., a large developer of Web-based event-management software, understood that this was of paramount concern to its clients—mainly beer and spirits manufacturers that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on events and promotions each year.
SalesTrac's main function was to help automate its clients' event-management functions and connect them with contractors who could represent clients' brands at various promotional events throughout the country. The company realized, however, that its clients were looking for more in-depth consumer insight to determine the effectiveness of these events. It seized the opportunity to provide increased value through an all-in-one system that added survey management and real-time reporting of consumer feedback to its services.
This additional functionality enabled SalesTrac clients to better understand event execution and build more insightful brand strategies. And SalesTrac was able to become much more than a software provider: It can now be considered a key component in its clients' marketing.
