AVANT Debuts Enhanced Pathfinder 2.0 at Special Forces Summit

AVANT, a platform for IT decision-making, reveals improvements to Pathfinder 2.0 (P2) today through Thursday at the 6th annual Special Forces Summit in Phoenix.

Updates to P2 include:

  • New provider analytics – Enables more informed, data-driven decision-making based on the real and verified experiences of Trusted Advisors (TAs).
  •  A connected experience – Ensures a faster, more efficient sales cycle by up-leveling engagement levels between AVANT, Tas and providers.
  •  Expanded vendor portfolio – Offers a more intuitive and customer-ready experience for the TA.

With P2 and the AVANT Analytics engine, TAs can tap into vendor data that cannot be found elsewhere. Years of extensive data accumulation by AVANT and the Trusted Advisor Community have created dependable and authenticated vendor ratings of verified sales across key business sectors, including cybersecurity, CCaaS/UcaaS, connectivity, cloud, and colocation.

P2 provides access only to verified vendor data collected from more than 1,500 surveys conducted by AVANT following deal closure and post-sale implementation. Once collected, the data are analyzed by AVANT’s data scientists.

P2 is a tool that enables TAs to engage directly with AVANT’s sales and back-office resources. The direct connections to the right resources within the platform create a faster, more efficient sales cycle.

New to P2 is a commission inquiry section where TAs can open inquiries, drag and drop files, submit commission questions and see the real-time status, which is integrated directly with the commission inquiry team to ensure timely resolution and visibility.

A newly designed provider portfolio within P2 offers a more intuitive and customer-ready experience for the TA. Providing contact details, marketing content, survey analytics, and tools for generating quotes, the vendor portfolio supports quick filtering and vendor location, making it easier for TAs to navigate.

Trusted Advisors attending the Special Forces Summit have the opportunity to preview the new features of Pathfinder 2.0.
