Infinity Helps Vistage Colorado Executive Summit Take Sales Teams to a New 100%

 

Meeting sales quotas is difficult – taking a sales team to a New 100% is an even greater challenge. At the Vistage Executive Summit in Denver, Colorado, almost 70 Vistage members attended Infinity’s CEO Tom Leidigh’s lunchtime workshop to get tips on how to do it.

“You have an opportunity to transform your sales team into a revenue system,” Leidigh told the audience. 

Today, companies need an integrated system that addresses all of the key components that lead to superior sales growth. By integrating strategy, talent, analytics, sales, and marketing together can a company build a revenue system.

Leidigh compared the multi-functional integration to a self-driving car. These new vehicles require many different types of systems to work: GPS, sensing, computing, and mechanical components.

“If you don’t have an integrated system for sales, you might as well be working with a world atlas,” he said.

To help clients achieve a New 100% sales target, Infinity developed the Buyerlytics® revenue system. Buyerlytics® helps clients quickly integrate the components that drive revenue, including strategy & design, data & analytics, human talent, sales execution, and marketing integration.

Since formally launching the Buyerlytics® methodology in 2016, Infinity’s clients have seen tremendous results. One Infinity sales team broke a client’s global sales record; another team delivered 420% return on investment for another client. All clients have seen a 300% ROI and 100%+ revenue increases.

It’s this comprehensive approach to inside sales that led to Infinity’s multiple recognitions at the 2017 AA-ISP Leadership Summit.

“It is an honor to recognize Infinity as this year’s recipient of Innovator of the Year and Infinity CEO Tom Leidigh as TOP 25 Most Influential Inside Sales Professionals,” stated Perkins.  “We applaud Infinity and thank them for their service to our growing profession and community of inside sales representatives, leaders, and solution providers.”

Infinity Presents at the AA-ISP Leadership Summit Chicago April 18th-20th

CEO Thomas R. Leidigh Shares Strategizes on Revolutionizing Sales for Growth

Infinity CEO Tom Leidigh will present on how to revolutionize sales growth at the 9th annual American Association for Inside Sales Professionals (AA-ISP) Leadership Summit at the Sheraton Grand in Chicago, IL. The Summit features 70 sales experts plus breakout sessions for hands-on learning.

“Radical sales transformation is not just sales execution. It starts with a revenue system,” remarked Infinity CEO Tom Leidigh. “Throughout Infinity’s 20-year history as an outsourced inside sales agency, the most common phrase coming out of a boardroom is: We need more sales. Usually executives define a target 100%, thinking it is the right goal. But why stop at 100%?”

Leidigh will be encouraging AA-ISP attendees to think bigger in his talk “Enough with the Incremental Changes: Revolutionize Sales with Innovative Thinking” on Wednesday, April 19 at 10:15 a.m.

To help clients achieve a New 100% sales target, Infinity developed the Buyerlytics® revenue system. Buyerlytics® helps clients quickly integrate the components that drive revenue, including strategy & design, data & analytics, human talent, and sales execution.

Since formally launching the Buyerlytics® methodology in 2016, Infinity’s clients had seen tremendous results. One Infinity sales teams broke a client’s global sales records; another team delivered 420% return on investment for another client. All clients have experienced 300% ROI and 100%+ revenue increases.

“This growth doesn’t only come with new clients and programs,” says Jay Davey, Infinity Chief Revenue Officer. “This growth is on top of already fine-performing sales programs that got a boost from the integrated strategy, human talent, and data and analytics that Buyerlytics® brings.”

The success of the Buyerlytics® methodology led to Infinity being named Sales Provider of the Year by the National Stevie® Awards in 2016. Infinity was also honored for Sales Manager of the Year and Telesales Team of the Year.

Leidigh and Davey will share examples of how the Buyerlytics® revenue system works during several sessions at the AA-ISP Summit. Those interested in meeting with Infinity sales leaders are encouraged to visit the Infinity exhibit at the Summit to make an appointment.

Infinity Wins Gold as National Sales Provider of the Year

Infinity won Gold Stevie® Awards in the Sales Provider of the Year and Sales Manager of the Year categories in the 11th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. Infinity’s high-potential sales team won Silver in the Sales Team of the Year category as well.

The recognition comes after a year-long transformation, during which Infinity Contact emerged as the rebranded Infinity (www.infinitydelivers.com), a sales agency focused on engaging business-to-business relationships and offering revenue share pricing for clients.

“The rebranding was more than a new logo,” says Infinity President and CEO Thomas R. Leidigh. “We’ve launched Buyerlytics®, a new revenue system that raises the bar on what sales teams can achieve.”

Buyerlytics® is Infinity’s proprietary revenue system that makes it possible to achieve higher sales quotas—defining a New 100% sales quota for clients.

Buyerlytics® revolutionizes sales programs by integrating all of the components that lead to superior sales: strategy and design, human talent, data and analytics, and sales execution. Infinity applies the Buyerlytics® methodology to improve sales for clients who outsource sales programs to Infinity or seek to improve existing, internal teams.

As a result of the Buyerlytics® revenue system, Infinity sales teams broke one client’s global sales records and delivered 420% return on investment for another client. All clients have experienced 300% ROI and 100%+ revenue increases.

“This growth doesn’t only come with new clients and programs,” says Jay Davey, Infinity Chief Revenue Officer. “This growth is on top of already fine-performing sales programs that got a boost from the integrated strategy, human talent, and data and analytics that Buyerlytics® brings.”

This level of success was fueled by revenue share pricing between the client, Infinity, and the sales team. Infinity developed new pay-for-performance compensation plans and implemented new, enhanced training and analytics. The result has been a decreased time to first sale by 80% and increased account executives’ average compensation by 50%.

“Implementing Buyerlytics® has been a win-win-win for our clients, our company, and our account executives,” says Leidigh. “It truly was a company-wide effort, and being recognized by the Stevie Awards at the company, manager, and team levels is testament to that.”

Infinity was founded in 1996 as Infinity Contact, a direct marketing company serving the automotive industry. In 2000, Infinity Contact expanded to include business-to-business telemarketing services that focused on selling products to small and medium sized businesses in the automotive, financial, digital, and software industries.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development, and sales professionals. The awards were presented during a gala banquet on Friday, February 24 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.  More than 650 executives from around the world attended.

More than 2,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition, an increase of 10% over 2016.  Finalists were determined by the average scores of 77 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges.  Entries were considered in 61 categories for customer service and contact center achievements, including Contact Center of the Year, Award for Innovation in Customer Service, and Consulting Practice of the Year; more than 53 categories for sales and business development achievements, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Business Development Achievement of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers.

More than 75 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging earlier this month. Another 77 judges determined finalists.

“The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continues to be among the most competitive and fastest-growing of our awards programs,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards.  “The growth of the program illustrates the importance of the functions highlighted – sales, business development and customer service – to successful enterprises of all types, and how integral recognition in these domains are to building and maintaining corporate reputations.”

Infinity Recognized as Finalist in Sales Outsourcing Provider of the Year

Infinity Sales Manager and Telesales Team Also Finalists for Stevie Awards for Sales

Infinity, the inside sales agency that rebranded and launched revenue share pricing in 2016, has been named a finalist for three Stevie Awards for Sales categories—including Sales Outsourcing Provider of the Year, Sales Manager of the Year, and Telesales Team of the Year.

The recognition comes after a year-long transformation, when Infinity Contact emerged as the rebranded Infinity, a sales agency focused on engaging business-to-business relationships.

“The rebranding was more than a new logo,” says Infinity President and CEO Thomas R.  Leidigh. “We’ve launched Buyerlytics®, a new revenue system that raises the bar on what sales teams can achieve.”

The success following the 2016 implementation and launch of Buyerlytics® is what caught the judges’ attention in the competition. Buyerlytics® integrates the components of superior sales, systematizing revenue, and making higher sales targets possible—a New 100% sales target.

Over 2016, Infinity implemented Buyerlytics® for all existing clients, which included a transition to revenue share pricing. As a result of the Buyerlytics® revenue system, Infinity sales teams broke one client’s global sales records and delivered 420% return on investment for another client. All clients have experienced 300% ROI and 100%+ revenue increases.

At the same time, revenue share pricing opened the door for improved compensation for account executives. New pay-for-performance compensation plans combined with enhanced training and analytics decreased time to first sale by 80% and increased the average compensation of account executives by 50%.

“Implementing Buyerlytics® has been a win-win-win for our clients, our company, and our account executives,” says Leidigh. “It truly was a company-wide effort, and being recognized by the Stevie Awards at the company, manager, and team levels is testament to that.”

More than 2,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated for Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service, an increase of 10% over 2016. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 77 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges.

More than 130 members of seven specialized judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging. Achieving finalist status ensures Infinity will receive Gold, Silver, or Bronze placement.

Final results will be announced at the 2017 Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service on February 24.

Infinity Leads the Corridor in Work-Life Balance

3 Reasons Why Our Sales Pros Rate Us Above Other Employers in Work-Life Balance

When it comes to work-life balance, Infinity sales pros rate us 4.2 out of 5 stars—above the average rating of 3.3 and above most employers in our area!

The term work-life balance can have multiple meanings, but in general it means having a satisfying personal life and professional life. Regardless of the exact definition, experts say that work-life balance means balancing time, and they advise workers to manage their time effectively to get what they want out of their day.

In fact, when we asked our employees why they rate us so highly in work-life balance, they said it’s because Infinity makes that time management easier. Here’s how.

Work-Life Balance Value #1 — Predictability

When experts give advice on achieving work-life balance, they start by recommending that workers better organize their time.

Our employees point out that organizing time is easy at Infinity because our work hours are predictable. Infinity sells products to businesses and that means working typical business hours.

“Our hours are 8 to 4:30, which is when kids are in school, so it’s perfect hours. And we have weekends off. No split shifts or different days off every week. The schedule is always the same.”

Work-Life Balance Value #2 — Flexibility

Flexibility is key to job satisfaction, according to a recent survey. 84% of parents said that flexibility is important in the workplace, and Infinity’s parents are no different.

In fact, Infinity’s flexibility is another reason why our employees rate us so highly in work-life balance.

“I’m a single mom and sometimes that means I need to go to appointments or school activities for my son. My management team works with me to make it possible for me to not only make the appointments that I need to be at—but also make great money while I am at work.”

Work-Life Balance Value #3 — Compensation

That last comment is the third reason why Infinity employees rate us highly in work-life balance: compensation.

Not only do Infinity employees get predictability and flexibility for balancing their personal and professional lives, but our pay structure makes enjoying personal life affordable.

Earlier in 2016, Infinity converted all of our clients to a revenue share pricing model. For our employees achieving sales goal, this meant a more than 50% pay increase from a year ago.

Our Goal: A Great Place to Work

Infinity has been tremendously encouraged by this feedback, because it means our plans are working!

In July 2015, Infinity CEO Thomas Leidigh announced his commitment to a company rebranding. It included improving the professional culture and making Infinity a great place to work.

The recent rating of Infinity’s work-life balance is just one sign that the company is meeting this goal.
