Quantifiable, prescriptive intelligence for sales and marketing.
Klearly is a SaaS-based platform for B2B companies. Klearly uses data science and machine learning to help sales and marketing teams quantify their impact on revenue, and get prescriptive, actionable recommendations on future activities.
The vast majority of today’s sales and marketing technologies are great at telling you what happened in the past, but do very little to help you make actionable decisions on the future. It’s like driving your car using only the rearview mirror. Let us know how that’s working out for you.
Born out of this frustration, Klearly is a solution that tells sales and marketing leaders the ideal combinations of activities that will most significantly influence future revenue. It’s like Google Maps for sales and marketing.
Additionally, we believe the majority of today’s technologies take too long to implement, and require too much training to learn how to use. Sales and marketing professionals are busy—we know, as we’ve quite literally walked in your shoes for dozens of years—and don’t have time to install another platform and/or learn how to use it. That’s why Klearly features a code-free implementation and an intuitive, efficient, and actionable user experience.
No more trying to make sense of countless reports and dashboards that only show the past.
It’s time to see Klearly.
