Leading enterprise marketing teams are framing their virtual engagement strategy based on the results they expect to accomplish with prospects and customers. The InterCall platform provides you with virtual events that engage your audience during every step of turning prospects into loyal fans.

InterCall has built five solution areas based on the customer lifecycle:
Virtual Event Platform Customer Lifecycle


InterCall solutions map to the customer lifecycle in three key ways:

  • We set, measure and report on specific key performance indicators

CA Launches New Products Globally

In the past, CA's launch of new products was a monumental effort. The company flew sales people to Islandia for training, traveled to 50+ cities for product seminars and rented premium space at trade shows. CA knew there had to be a better, more cost-effective way to launch their products globally.

Virtual Training Examples

The company decided to switch to a virtual launch strategy. They first used InterCall to launch the ArcServe and XOSoft products to internal marketing, sales and systems engineering teams to be sure everyone was well trained on the product features and capabilities.

A week later, CA launched these products in a one-day event to customers, promoting the new offerings through online technical demonstrations, complimentary partner booths and executive keynote sessions. They delivered the event simultaneously in English, Spanish, German and French.

The company knew that consolidating information on green products in the building industry had merit, but wanted to test it with key audiences. The two-day PureBlue event featured four conferences, 40 exhibitor booths and a comprehensive resource center. It was the initial test of a broader sustainability program for BlueLinx.
