Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced that it has launched the Negotiator-Pro platform to build its corporate-wide negotiations capabilities in all facets of its operations—from planning and executing mergers and acquisitions to improving the negotiations skills of product, sales and engineering teams. The state-of-the-art platform operates within the cloud and includes a complete project management system with team building and training, preparation, execution, collaboration and debriefing functionality. The platform’s intuitive design enables corporate planners and project managers to analyze and manage multiple negotiations in real-time, with tools that define and assign project roles and responsibilities. It also offers organization documentation to preserve transactional history and assist with regulatory compliance.
Negotiator-Pro is the creation of Jim Camp and his team at the Camp Negotiation Institute. Camp and his team have consulted with Cypress, multi-national corporations and even the FBI Hostage Crisis Negotiation Training Unit to optimize negotiation outcomes. His negotiation outcomes have yielded success valued in the $100 millions.
“Salespeople, and other corporate negotiators, are typically trained to seek out so-called win-win outcomes—which in reality never provide maximum return or successful long-term agreements,” said Cypress President and CEO T.J. Rodgers. “The Negotiator-Pro platform realigns our thinking and transitions the approach of our teams from defense to a strong offense, producing agreements that grow business relationships. It provides a clear methodology to calculate the value of products and business transactions and provides solid and consistent negotiation coaching.”
“We are pleased to expand our collaboration with Cypress with the Negotiator-Pro platform,” Jim Camp said. “With customized training and industry leading content—and its compatibility with both fast-growing mobile platforms such as iPhones and iPads and broadly accepted CRMs—Negotiator-Pro is the first platform of its kind to achieve training, project management, team collaboration and coaching automation, that is, the ability to improve negotiating skills on the fly without the time and travel investment frequently required by one-to-one coaching meetings and training seminars.”
