Powerful new features and partnership announcements give entrepreneurs the solutions needed to get organized, grow sales and save time
(Chandler, Arizona, March 14, 2016) Infusionsoft is pleased to announce the conclusion of its 10th year of ICON, Infusionsoft's annual user conference that most recently brought together more than 3,000 attendees from 25 countries.
ICON16 brought together small business owners looking to reach new levels of success with their sales and marketing efforts over a three-day event that was packed with insightful keynotes, small business success stories, sales and marketing education and Infusionsoft product training.
Infusionsoft is dedicated to powering small business success and recently made several product and partnership announcements that give entrepreneurs the solutions and knowledge they need to succeed in today’s ultra-competitive environment. These include:
Small Business Success Method
- The Small Business Success Method was announced at the conference and demystifies the path to small business success by helping business owners examine where they are at and determine what the best next steps are on their path to success. The company leveraged 15 years of knowledge working with tens of thousands of small business owners to identify what sales and marketing strategies commonly work and doesn’t work.
Infusionsoft Email Builder
- A powerful new feature built for Infusionsoft’s cloud-based sales and marketing solution, Infusionsoft Email Builder modernizes the email experience for small businesses by providing ready-to-use templates with a drag-and drop design to build beautiful, professional emails for any device that stand out from the crowd and elevate the brand to drive business.
- Through a new design and a robust search, Infusionsoft Marketplace improves how customers manage their business by connecting them with Infusionsoft’s ecosystem of apps, services and campaigns all designed to help them manage and grow their business.
QuickBooks and Xero Integration
- The integration bridges the front and back office, allowing small business owners to get the entire picture of the performance of their business. This real-time integration empowers small business owners to make decisive and educated decisions with the information at their reach and eliminates the need to manually update third-party accounting software with orders and invoices as well as other outdated customer information, which is time-consuming and inefficient.
Infusionsoft Mobile EMV Compatible Card Reader
- To meet the need of customers who conduct in-person events or want the option of accepting a credit card in-person, Infusionsoft partnered with WePay, a payments provider for leading platform companies, to develop an EMV compatible mobile card reader. With Infusionsoft’s own mobile card reader, customers no longer have to rely on other mobile payments solution providers offering card readers.
ICON16 was also host to several Infusionsoft customer award announcements, which included:
2016 Small Business ICON Winner
- Brooklyn Music Factory was named the 2016 Small Business ICON winner and awarded $10,000 for achieving notable revenue and customer growth by implementing Infusionsoft’s sales and marketing solutions into their business practices.
