“When we made the switch to Prophet from simply using Outlook it took our prospecting game at WestCMR to the next level. The data we were suddenly able to massage and extract allowed us to more accurately track successes geographically and by Health System, as well as better measure success rates by sales consultant.
We were impressed and continue to be working with a team from Avidian who genuinely cares as much about who we are as what we do, all the while showing interest in our mission to reduce the massive waste in healthcare. They are true partners.
It’s easy to assume and correlate that this has all contributed to or enjoying five years of consistent double- digit growth for our business enterprise, a trajectory we are convinced will only continue. My sales team and I would enthusiastically recommend Prophet and Avidian to anyone looking to make a move to a CRM platform that is user friendly and well supported.”

“Prophet has helped us not only make more sales calls, but also to make those calls more targeted.” It has improved our communications to the team and customers. It helps us track customer obligations and then follow through on those obligations. When a salesperson follows through on a customer obligation, they are a hero. If they don’t, well, then they are a bum. “Prophet helps my team be heroes.”
