|Oracle® CRM On Demand Marketing
Oracle CRM On Demand Marketing allows telemarketers to record attempts to contact prospects and the results of calls. If call attempts result in successful conversations, telemarketers can record new information gathered using a call script Web form. Any new information entered or information verified is updated within the prospect record in the Oracle CRM On Demand Marketing contact database immediately. When the call is successful, telemarketers can qualify or disqualify the prospect, change the prospect's lead score, and move the prospect to another queue for distribution to the Sales Department. Prospects can also be marked for future followup or assigned a lead score that automatically makes the prospect eligible, or ineligible, for future nurturing by the Marketing Department.
