What is an Animation Worth?

What is an animation really worth? 100,000 words? Now that’s a lot of words. The point is it may be possible to get your customers buying VoIp products more quickly by allowing them access to animations that explain complex ideas in easy to understand graphics. Here is a recent release from Techtionary for more information:

Cut Sales Prospecting Time, Delay & Confusion
Try Our Exclusive TECHtionary.com Sales Presentations for iPod or PC... Starting at $200
If a picture is worth 10,000 words, an animated online presentation is worth 10 times 10,000.
 
“We cut confusion regarding VoIP and complex technology.  This shortens prospecting sales time, buyer review time, help sales staff understand what they sell, lower customer support costs resulting in increased customer satisfaction.  That is, you can’t sell what you don’t know,” noted Tom Cross, TECHtionary CEO.  “We produce online presentations that are also visually-engaging, fast-paced and fun,” he added.

In evaluating these new online presentations, Chuck Griffin, iPath CEO, noted its three immediate benefits.  First, when TECHtionary’s VoIP online presentations are shown to prospective customers, complex concepts such as multi-office dialing, integrated access, outlook integration, SIP, and many other operations are reduced to an easy-to-understand format.  He also noted that a “pictionary” presentation reduces the days customers require to evaluate the process.
           
Second, “When it comes to the costs associated with customer support, they can ‘break-the-bank.’  It isn’t the first or second phone call that causes support costs to skyrocket.  These are the result of customer staff turnover and new-hires,” Griffin added.  “The TECHtionary.com Phoneset installation animation on Broadsoft, Sylantro, Cisco, ShoreTel, NEC, Polycomm and other platforms are known to save substantial amounts of time because support calls don’t come in one-at-a-time.  Normally, dealers receive large bursts of support calls, forcing many callers to give up their efforts to obtain explanations for their queries. TECHtionary.com Phoneset animations provide a pictorial approach that greatly reduces the number and length of such phone calls, thus saving thousands of dollars while at the same time providing cost-efficiency and insuring increased customer satisfaction.”
           
Third, Griffin added, “When it comes to client satisfaction, customers seek a relationship with a vendor who will respond during the after-sale period. They want to be sure that new features can be added or changed as new services emerge.  TECHtionary’s online presentations easily meet these and other business challenges.”
           
A user who is thrilled by such new online presentations is Cindy Johnson, Director of Technology, Lee County Schools, Sanford, North Carolina.  “TECHtionary.com animated web online presentations virtually eliminate users’ training problems.  They reduce the hours of classroom time and problems with scheduling. They simplify how and when to provide classes for those who missed a training session.  To sum it up, these presentations have a nice, clean look.”

Still not convinced.  Look at what people are saying:

Witt - Executive Vice President – Colorado Telecommunications Association
 
“In regard to the new 90-second web online presentations on VoIP, TECHtionary leads the way.  In fact, TECHtionary is as often as good as any sales person as it’s available to customers 7x24 and, most importantly, to the real decision-makers in the organization. TECHtionary also opens up all kinds of new concepts and allows viewers to explore complex issues over and over again until they get it."  Justin Chris-Tensen Vice President & General Manager, Channel Sales
 
“TECHtionary may have finally made VoIP understandable.  These new 90-second web online presentations show "how it works" in terms even my mom would understand.  The "business benefits" make me want to buy today.  As a comprehensive tool, TECHtionary has demonstrated the ability to eliminate confusion, reduce errors, improve self-confidence, and, most of all, avoid the need for representatives to delay their sales activity while awaiting explanations from the home office.”  Peter Meyer - Call Centre Director
 
"How VoIP Works in 90 Seconds" and "Business Benefits of VoIP in 90 Seconds" are great online presentations for anyone who is evaluating VoIP.  I often make presentations to the School Board and these presentations certainly help key decision-makers understand the technology and their benefits faster and easier.  These presentations reduce confusion, are short and to the point and are far more exciting than your typical boring PowerPoint presentation.  In addition, it saves me a considerable amount of time preparing a presentation.  I would encourage any VoIP vendor to get TECHtionary's help in building these online presentations on all their Products and applications.” Cindy Johnson, Director of Technology, Lee County Schools, Sanford, North Carolina.
 
As a consultant and expert witness, I am frequently faced with technology which can be confusing for clients and therefore requires translation into useable information for these clients.  The 90-second online presentations on VoIP produced by TECHtionary.com, for example, can reduce confusion considerably.  In addition, very often, clients have many people involved in various facets of the decision making process.  These online presentations
can help considerably to reduce the evaluation period “wait time” since they are concise, visual and detailed enough for just about anyone.  Paul C. Daubitz – President – ATI-Telemanagement - http://www.ati-telemgt.com/
