“Better Visibility” is the number 1 need identified by business people when it comes to how they get and use information. Visibility means getting the right information into the hands of the right people at the right time. Right information is relevant and accurate. Right people are those who know what to do next. Right time, is whenever they need it. That’s spontaneous visibility.

CALUMO is the only solution that gives both technical and non-technical people the information they need wherever they are, in whatever application they choose to use, and gives them everything they need to share it, instantly. It’s always-on and always available so the right time is any time.

In other words, Spontaneous.

Spontaneous Visibility: a CFO’s perspective


At a recent User Group event, John Creeley, CFO of First State Super, presented how he has delivered Spontaneous Visibility to the heads of department he supports with CALUMO.

John discussed just how easy it is for those people to get information when they need it and look deeper if they need to – without calling Finance or analysts to answer questions they can now answer for themselves.

Case study scenario: this sales manager doesn’t even know he’s using CALUMO

Meet Dirk. He’s a Business Development Manager at a Telecommunications company. Dirk is responsible for maximizing the revenue from his territory.

Dirk loves CALUMO because he doesn’t know he’s using it.

Dirk can get to critical sales information from CALUMO from within his CRM. He is able to move seamlessly from his CRM to CALUMO, where all the current transactional information is available, without ever knowing he’s left the CRM. Dirk has found that CALUMO lets him get the information he needs without having to ask people for it and without needing to do lots of admin. Read more about Dirk here.
