Awards Category: Best Value Driven with Alteryx


  • Cisco Virtual Sales organization is responsible for nearly $5 Billion plus in revenue. One of the key challenges they faced was figuring out which bookings to associate with opportunities. There was a lack of mapping data, which would have helped achieve this visibility directly.
  • With Alteryx we did data science work and built fuzzy logic to match data based on geography, customer hierarchy and other factors.
  • The visibility provided was humanly difficult to achieve otherwise.


Describe the problem you needed to solve

Bookings to opportunity matching was missing hence the sales leadership had a tough time attributing the sales efforts to the results.
