About our Speakers
Cory Bray,Regional Director of Business Intelligence, CorSource Technology Group
Cory currently serves as the Regional Director of Business Intelligence for CorSource Technology Group where he is responsible for working with companies on data analysis and process improvement projects. He has previously held various financial, sales, and operational positions, including a two year stint as the Director of Operations of an industrial distribution company in Houston, TX. Cory holds a BS from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Cory will show how companies use Birst’s Business Intelligence solution to increase profitability, better manage their sales pipeline, and gain a competitive advantage in their industry.
Organizations that have previously struggled with optimizing pricing and minimizing expenses have used Birst to better understand what areas of their business warrant further investment, and which areas should receive less attention. As a result, both top line and bottom line performance has increased significantly.
With full integration into SalesForce and all other types of computer systems, the sales pipeline can be managed not only from a pure opportunity basis, but companies can also account for many critical factors that exist outside of SalesForce in order to make the best decisions possible for their business.
Finally, as more and more companies shift to making data-driven decisions, companies must embrace a culture of analytics in order to stay ahead of the competition…or at least keep up. Failure to do so could potentially lead to disastrous results.
