SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - The TAS Group (www.thetasgroup.com), the world
leader in Sales Performance Automation, today announced another customer
success with AMICAS, Inc., the leading independent provider of imaging IT
solutions in healthcare. AMICAS implemented The TAS Group's sales
methodology and Dealmaker sales performance automation platform in 2008 and
has seen 33 percent organic bookings growth over the four quarters ending
June 30, 2009, despite a challenging economic environment.
The TAS Group's sales methodology, process, and Dealmaker on-demand
software were used by AMICAS to transform their sales organization's
performance. Having previously used event-based training, Dealmaker's
ability to reinforce best practices for sales people on a daily basis
proved to be a welcome change.
"Use of The TAS Group's methodology has been an integral part of our sales
success over the last year," said Paul Merrild, senior vice president,
marketing and business development for AMICAS. "We've always been believers
in sales methodology and process, and Dealmaker's unique on-demand
technology adds the daily reinforcement that was missing in past
AMICAS has also driven further growth through acquisition, having
successfully acquired and integrated Emageon earlier this year. A key
piece of any successful merger is to integrate sales approaches, and ensure
that customers and prospects are handled with a consistent level of service
in order to ensure that the combined company can fulfill the promise of
value creation for its shareholders. Use of the TAS methodology has helped
AMICAS to standardize on sales best practices with Emageon's sales staff.
"We are proud to be associated with a cutting-edge customer like AMICAS,"
said York Baur, CMO of The TAS Group. "Their commitment to sales
excellence is exemplary, and it's gratifying to see our sales methodology,
process, and technology play a part in their success."
