Robert Seidl, Co-founder & CTO
As CTO of Genius.com® Incorporated, Seidl is the driving force behind the technology development and "Genius" product innovation.
After founding a successful software company in the Netherlands, Seidl launched his Silicon Valley career as an engineer at Apple. In 1994, Seidl founded and became CEO of Ceneca Software, the developer of PageMill, the first visual web page editor, and SiteMill, a website management product. Adobe acquired Ceneca and PageMill became a runaway success.
Seidl's passion for creating cutting-edge software that is easy to use by all, led him to start two more companies: Canoma (acquired by Metacreations), a developer of ground-breaking photogrammetry 3D rendering software for graphic artists, and RTVS, a real-time video-processing software company for military and medical applications.
100% SaaS-based solution paid by yearly subscription
Most B2B companies have made significant investments in their corporate web sites, but, until now, there's been no direct return on investment for Sales. Prospects signal their interest when they visit the website, but there has been no way to know how long they're spending on the site and what pages they're visiting.
Genius provides real-time lead management to ensure that leads in the pipeline are being handled by the right sales and/or marketing team member at the right time -- resulting in better customer service, higher revenue and more productive marketing efforts. This enables Sales and Marketing to collaborate effectively, identify opportunities, quickly pinpoint their current interests, and instantly alert the best sales team member to build the prospect relationship.
