Expanding on Lattice's success delivering predictive applications to sales organizations at some of the largest and fastest growing companies in the world, Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring is designed specifically for marketers at companies of all sizes. It capitalizes on today's universe of buying signals and advanced data science in a secure, easy to use and quick to deploy cloud application.

Comments on the News

  • "Adding predictive analytics to our lead scoring model has given us an entirely new level of insight into which lead attributes are actually predictive of buying behaviors," said Eva Tsai, senior director of marketing operations at Citrix. "Lattice has helped us to refine our funnel so that we can now cherry pick the best sales leads to hand over to sales."
  • "Connecting human behaviors to organizational behaviors and triggers is the hallmark of successful B2B sales," said Abner Germanow, director of worldwide enterprise marketing at Juniper Networks. "Complex B2B relationships require marketing organizations to move past linear lead scoring models that don't result in positive customer or sales experiences."
  • "With tens of thousands of free trials started every month, we needed help prioritizing the best leads for sales," said Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, CMO at Mindjet. "Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring is helping us to zero in on the attributes that make a free trial most likely to turn into a paying customer. Now our sales team knows in minutes if a new lead has a strong likelihood of closing."
  • "Approximately 75 percent of lead models are not data-driven. Instead, they are based on the feelings and beliefs of marketing and sales about lead quality," said Jay Famico, SiriusDecisions. "In lead scoring, the use of statistical techniques increases precision and decreases the number of leads that are false-positive or false-negative. This increases sales accepted lead rates, improves sales effectiveness and better aligns sales and marketing."
  • "Lead scoring is the next frontier for predictive analytics in marketing," said Shashi Upadhyay, CEO of Lattice Engines. "Now companies can benefit from applying science to the universe of prospect and customer knowledge available today to predict and close their best leads."

Removing the Barriers to Effective Lead Scoring
Today, 44 percent of companies are doing lead scoring, according to a new Decision Tree Labs Report. However, the survey respondents gave their current lead scoring programs poor marks for effectiveness, with an average grade of five out of 10. The top two reasons given for the low scores were a lack of confidence in the accuracy of data and not having enough insight into what constitutes actual buying behavior.

Lattice is removing these barriers and helping customers to actually predict their next buyer. By combining data already tracked in marketing automation and CRM systems with signals from the Web, social media and other internal sources, Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring pinpoints the qualities of a lead that are most predictive of actual buying signals. Once these buying signals are consolidated, the power of predictive analytics ensures that the most sales-ready leads are passed to CRM while the rest can be nurtured by marketing until they're ready to buy.

Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring delivers:

  • Access to the entire universe of buying signals - Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring combines not only the buying signals in marketing automation and CRM systems, but also the other 99 percent brought together in the Lattice Data Cloud, the industry's largest source of Web, social and proprietary buying signals.
  • Data science for marketers - Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring uses data science to tell marketers the exact definition of a good lead so they can stop relying on debate, opinion and assumptions.
  • Lead scoring in days – Lattice Predictive Lead Scoring can be deployed in days, rather than months, and is optimized from the start as opposed to requiring numerous iterations.
  • The Lattice Predictive Lead Score – As opposed to assigning leads to large ranked segments, the Lattice Predictive Lead Score represents actual probabilities for a lead to convert so marketers can not only prioritize leads, but assign true value to them.
  • Proven technology at the world's largest and fastest growing companies – Lattice's predictive analytics technology is used today by more than 50,000 marketing and sales professionals in more than 20 countries around the world.

Product connectivity goes hand and hand these days with increased use of personal data. New IoT devices are becoming more personalized than ever before. In his session at 22nd Cloud Expo | DXWorld Expo, Nicolas Fierro, CEO of MIMIR Blockchain Solutions, will discuss how in order to protect your data and privacy, IoT applications need to embrace Blockchain technology for a new level of product security never before seen - or needed.
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage.

In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Tevis, an IBM Storage Software Technical Strategist and Customer Solution Architec...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way.

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
