What is the Hidden Revenue Assessment?

Are the assessments free?

Qualifying Salesforce users can request the assessment for free. After the assessment, you have the option to subscribe to the Cien app and where you can unlock additional recommendations and track your entire team’s selling attributes.

What type of information do I need to input into Cien?

That's easy - none! The data already exists within your CRM and the values displayed reflect this data with a little help from Cien's machine learning models. Just keep using your CRM as you always do and let Cien take it from there.

How do I qualify for the free assessment?

To qualify, you need to be selling a B2B technology product or service, have 10 or more reps using Salesforce Enterprise Edition for at least 12 months, and have booking values recorded in your CRM.

How much does the Cien App cost?

Use of the Cien App is optional. Monthly pricing starts at $49 per rep. We offer a full-money back guarantee within 30 days if you’re not 100% satisfied.
