VILLANOVA, Pa., July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Journey Sales today announced that Financial Horizons Group achieved record quarterly growth for its network of partners and financial advisors using Smart Rooms by Journey Sales. Financial Horizons reported that the company had increased year-over-year quarterly sales by an average of 51% for carrier partners during its first phase of rolling out the digital customer engagement solution from Journey Sales. Over the same period, however, sales increased by only 1.3% for partners not participating in Smart Rooms.
According to Stephen Maloney, Vice President of Marketing Research and Development at Financial Horizons Group, "We were looking for an innovative sales, marketing and channel solution that integrated seamlessly with our CRM system. Journey Sales enables us to deliver our digital-first go-to-market strategy and initiatives, from new product launches to advisor communications." With Smart Rooms, Financial Horizons has streamlined and scaled access to customized online resources and information on a wide range of products and services from more than 20 insurance carriers. The solution enables Financial Horizons and its partners to collaborate more effectively and efficiently across its growing network of 9,000 advisors for increased production and through all phases of recruiting and onboarding.
As a fully native app built on the Salesforce® CRM system, Smart Rooms provides Financial Horizons with real-time engagement analytics and dashboards for managing sales pipelines and forecasts, as well as closing deals more quickly. "With Smart Room analytics, carriers not only gain better insight into products and service demand, but also can benchmark themselves against competitors.

Bill Butler, CEO and Co-Founder of Journey Sales, added, "No matter what industry you're in, Smart Rooms are helping buyers and sellers connect, communicate and collaborate better than ever before.
