Generate leads and convert them into loyal customers
The IBM® Lead Management solution is a complete set of capabilities for generating leads and converting them into loyal customers. When leads are not well managed, efficiency of sales decreases and the cost of marketing increases. The gap between sales and marketing can get even wider, resulting in a loss of productivity and an inability to achieve critical objectives.

Generating highly qualified, sales-ready leads is harder than ever. Most marketers are trying to do so using a mix of disconnected technologies and manual processes. The result is disjointed marketing, inadequate sales coordination, uninterested prospects and missed revenues.
IBM helps marketers to generate, nurture and convert quality leads into loyal customers through improved quality of leads, automation of lead management processes and the ability to act promptly on qualified leads.
