Comments on the News
Several companies and industry analysts reviewed the Compelligence solution with positive results.
Eric Garland, Competitive Intelligence Industry Trend Analyst and author of Future Inc: How Businesses Can Anticipate and Profit from What's NEXT, recalled a YouTube video he made where he satirized the interaction between competitive intelligence and sales. "In my world, the sales guy gets totally confused because there is no 'competitive intelligence' button in Salesforce, therefore CI must be useless. Well, Compelligence, went out and actually made a button for competitive intelligence in Salesforce - and it's really good."
Mr. Garland describes the app, "like sending the company's top competitive analyst into the field with your sales people every time. Sales departments will love it because it saves time and increases win rates. Competitive intelligence people should go crazy with joy, because finally they can tie their analytical activities to bottom line revenue generation. If you've got Salesforce and you've got customers and you like increasing revenue, then you really should get Compelligence."
Hedge fund manager Dr. Michael J. Burry, who was featured in the book The Big Short by Michael Lewis, commented, "I believe in Compelligence. It seems that this team has found an inefficiency in the marketplace, and the market is not a small one."
Dr. Marianne McGarry Wolf, Professor of Wine Business at Cal Poly and Co-Founder of ValuePulse commented, "The Compelligence solution provides users with key insight into their competitors' strategies and gives them a unique advantage in this competitive global business environment."
