Reston, VA – November 16, 2009 –The TerrAlign Group, Inc. today announced that salesforce.com has selected TerrAlign 4 and eMap®, the leading territory alignment and sales resource optimization solution.
TerrAlign’s solutions help organizations automate and optimize their sales resource planningprocess by enabling the Sales Operations group to design, visualize, analyze, and manage field forces for maximum utilization and profitability. Through a map-based user interface, TerrAlign automatically aligns and optimizes sales territories, giving each rep an equal amount of sales, potential, or workload while minimizing driving time.

Salesforce.com has enjoyed continued growth since its inception, but as a result faces the need to continually realign their territories. Doing this in an equitable manner to keep all reps in territories that are challenging, but have enough opportunity to reach quota is difficult, especially when attempting to also minimize the amount of disruption, that is, the number of accounts changing owners.

As the leader and innovator of the SaaS market, salesforce.com has top people in all positions, and makes decisions based on in-depth evaluation of all aspects of the product; functionality, technology and security,” said Ken Kramer, Director, Product Marketing & Business Development, TerrAlign. “We view this as a validation of years of effort in developing our solutions.”
