The Velocify 2017 Elite Award Winners in alphabetical order are:
First Direct Lending, LLC
First Direct Lending, a direct-to-consumer mortgage lender launched in 2014 with a single office and just five loan consultants using Velocify. Since launching, they have leveraged the sales acceleration platform to grow to more than 175 users in three offices across the country.
With Velocify, the lender was able to test contact and email strategies, quickly on-board and train new salespeople, easily integrate with new marketing partners, and measure campaign and user performance – all without drawing on precious IT resources. First Direct Lending, which is currently licensed in 26 states, describes Velocify as the “central location for ensuring we give customers a great experience, while maximizing sales efficiency.”
Plymouth Rock Assurance
The property and casualty insurance carrier Plymouth Rock Assurance, described how Velocify helped the sales team get maximum value out of thousands of purchased leads each month, dramatically improving performance year over year. Using Velocify’s Dial-IQ, Shotgun Connect, and Priority View capabilities, Plymouth Rock cut its response times from hours to seconds and enabled trainers to spend more time coaching reps on how to talk with customers rather than continually reviewing follow-up best practices. After adding these new capabilities in 2014, the insurer saw quotes issued rise 103 percent and sales go up 66 percent the following year. In 2016 Plymouth Rock continued to build momentum with a six percent increase in quotes and another 10 percent increase in sales.
Southern Careers Institute
Finally, Southern Careers Institute (http://scitexas.edu), which provides employer-tailored education across business, medical, skilled-trades, technology and cosmetology programs, shared how Velocify was central to nurturing relationships with prospective students and winning back former students. SCI experienced a 15 percent year-over-year increase in enrollments in 2016, and was able to add key integrations and new processes with Velocify for its core campuses, online classes, and technology boot camps.
Congrats to our first class of Velocify Elite Award winners! You are all inspiring top-level performance and play a key role in shaping excellence in your industry.
