Selling software or services is all about being able to present demos that are relevant
to your potential customer. But you are most often faced with a time crunch and
have very little time to present something that makes sense and tells the story
you need to tell. With ProtoMart you can accomplish this quickly and easily in a
matter of hours allowing you to concentrate on your sales approach and delivery.
Creating a proof-of-concept with ProtoMart consists of a few simple steps which
can be finished in an hour or two. As an example, suppose you need to make a sales
presentation to a customer in the morning. All you have is access to the customer's
website and a few notes you got from talking to the customer the previous day. From
the customer's website you download the annual report for the previous fiscal year.
Using the portal wizards, you insert into a new ProtoMart model a time dimension,
a geography dimension, and a customer dimension of 3000 randomly generated companies. You then insert the company's product line into a product dimension along
with a couple of other relevant dimensions from the annual report. You then add
in a few measures relevant to the business' operation and configure how the Star
should look with ProtoMart's allocation interface. ProtoMart can then generate a
realistic prototype that will make business sense to your customer from which you
can demonstrate your BI offerings in the morning.
