                                                          does this in real time. It enables
                                                          conversations and inspires interaction. It
                                                          converges information from transactions
                                                          and the wisdom of the community into

                                                          constant change while seeking growth.

People. When we say People, we mean inside and outside of your company, including customers,
prospects, analysts, competitors, partners, suppliers, resellers. It’s all of the people and companies
that affect your business.

Streams. Think of Streams as dynamic workplaces where people, applications and knowledge
come together to get the job done. Streams are purpose-built to capture all the conversations,
interactions and transactions of your business. Streams are flexible and open to support
collaboration. The System understands how all Streams relate and can provide users Suggested
Streams in context to the work they are doing in the Coffee Bean System.

Applications. Applications are the tools that help you do your job—Social CRM, Social Media
Monitoring, Projects, Market Analysis, Performance Analysis and Business Initiatives.
Social Media provides real-time intelligence about customers.

Value Proposition——Support Existing Customer Relationships and Develop New Ones

Coffee Bean taps social media channels to bring real-time intelligence into the customer
relationship. Relationships are the number one reason sales wins deals.

Businesses use Social CRM systems to connect with existing customers meaningfully as well as support the development of new
customer relationships. These are tangible needs that translate into business value when the system can deliver on the promise.
Coffee Bean’s does.

relationship with customers discover incremental needs and opportunities. In Coffee Bean, Customer Streams create the touch
point of communication with customers. With one click, they are in context, in the system and conversing with you. Every
conversation is captured, building
knowledge within the system about
your interactions.

                 Top Reason Why Sales
                            Win Deals

         ““Existing Relationships came in as the
   number one reason that sales organizations
   win deals. ...We found that companies who
     more effectively leverage relationships are
   able to achieve a higher percentage of their
      sales revenues from their customer base
       versus those that rely on other factors.””

Value Proposition——Increase Sales to Existing Customers

Coffee Bean Advances Prospecting by Enabling Sales
Reps to Nurture Relationships into Opportunities for New
Business and Repeat Sales with an Existing Customer.

Sales people prospect independently of marketing lead generation
programs. They carefully begin to nurture a new relationship—which
may come through another contact, account, social network
connection or exchanged business card—or even an incremental
opportunity within an existing account.                                                         Send a customized message

Coffee Bean transparently captures the entire exchange into the
knowledge base it’s building about this relationship. Sales learns
about needs and timing, and the prospect garners information that
helps to build their knowledge about the company’s fit as a solution.
One-on-one they begin to relate to each other and an opportunity is

Prospecting is an important sales activity that contributes to building pipeline and Coffee Bean gives sales a
methodology to customize and personalize their prospecting efforts in order to increase conversion of prospects into
real deals.

              ““47.4% of the leads are self generated by sales reps....we see that salespeople are still
              doing the majority of the heavy lifting in the area of lead generation.”” —— CSO Insights 2010
Real-time knowledge drives better sales performance.

Value Proposition——Improve Sales Performance to Win More Deals

The Coffee Bean System targets sales performance with innovation that automatically streams
knowledge in real-time.

Core CRM functionality has helped sales to become more efficient. Yet, powering sales performance to win more deals is
what’s needed most to affect revenue. To do that, a system must be designed to compliment what sales does, provide
critical knowledge when it’s needed for decision-making, and support the customer’s buying process.

The Coffee Bean System addresses what’s needed to improve sales performance. More than simply freeing up
incremental selling time, we focus on delivering the right knowledge and information to reps when they need it most.

Coffee Bean Suggests Streams of Knowledge to Help Sales Be More Effective. Because Coffee Bean is open and flexible,
it accommodates the dynamic nature of a sale, capturing changes as they occur from both internal and external sources
that may affect the deal. With that aggregate knowledge, it supports sales’ efforts to optimize addressing the prospect’s
needs by presenting relevant
information as Suggested Streams.

The innovation is the automated
nature of Suggested Streams. When
Coffee Bean automatically moves
the right data and knowledge to the
user, it enables better decisions and
faster responses. It creates reasons
for communicating with an account
and therefore drives the very
mechanisms that help selling.

Value Proposition——Gain Competitive Edge
Coffee Bean System fosters sales and marketing alignment. Working in unison is key to maintaining a
competitive edge, winning more deals.

Customers are already social savvy and operating differently as buyers and users of businesses products and services. The historical
pattern of sales and marketing working in silos changes forever. The era of push marketing and rigid selling processes end. Businesses must
align to the social customer to survive, which means sales and marketing must adapt to a new social framework for doing their jobs.

Coffee Bean’s System creates a transparently
accountable, and connected working relationship
between the two organizations. Sales and marketing
alike want deeper customer engagements to better
understand needs, the conversation and how to
support a buying process controlled by the customer.
Coffee Bean delivers a social sales and marketing
framework that does just that.

     Customers want to participate in your business

Value Proposition——Customer Insights into Product Development

The Coffee Bean System builds customer engagement at many touch points so you connect in ways
that are meaningful for the customer and your business.

Take any market today and you’ll see that customers are more connected to each other than businesses often recognize. A
social customer is truly an advocate and believes the role of contributor they play affects products, service and direction of
your business. This is the highest form of customer relationship.

The Value of Customer Co-Creation to Inspire Innovation in Products and Services. Social customers expect to participate with a
business to effect the future of product development. They are as in-the-know about your products, your competitors and what
other customers think. This kind of wisdom is worth tapping and Coffee Bean created Customer Streams just for that purpose.

A Customer Stream turns processes such as quarterly
satisfaction surveys and annual advisory meetings into a
continuous interaction with a single individual or group of
customers. In the case of product development, they
receive, respond and view all comments related to the
discussion within the Stream. And Coffee Bean captures
all of the interaction which can be easily shared with
other stakeholders in the company. Net-net, you develop
products the market seeks, faster.

When the customer’s voice is brought directly into your
business through Customer Streams that engage them
with your organization and their peers, you build a
relationship based on trust and transparency.

Value Proposition——Immediacy and Accountability Across the Organization

Coffee Bean continuously captures your business’ performance in action and streams it to
decision makers in your organization.

Every Business charts their path to growth as initiatives, yet the true challenge resides in translating those initiatives across
the organization into day-to-day actions that drive execution. The key to addressing this challenge is accessing methods
to monitor discreet, daily progress and sharing that knowledge with decision makers. When management knows where
the business stands, they make better decisions and respond with immediacy because they are confident.

Coffee Bean looks at every business as a living process of communications, decisions and actions that needs a means to
capture and disseminate the real-time dynamics of its progress. Because our system is based on Streams, it links strategy
with execution, performance with promise and synchronizes to the rhythm of every day multi-tasking. All of it in real time.

Projects Underpin Every Major Business Initiative and Touches All Levels of Your Organization. Projects are at the center
of everyday action by employees fulfilling any role in the business. They are the manifestation of “getting things done”.
They support agendas as big as the company’s growth initiatives, or as significant as completing the latest competitive
analysis, and even as finite as planning the gift giveaway for an upcoming trade show. Regardless of size or scope, each
project affects the business. Therefore, they merit broad visibility and seamless integration to create a social business
environment of complete transparency.

Coffee Bean’s system integrates projects into Streams to enable them to be the living, open process they need to be. A
Project Stream keeps track of the myriad of tasks, activities, milestones and events that are part of the project.
Stakeholders are always aware of changes because the system automatically tracks progress and alerts when risks to
completion occur. Up and down the organization, every project is visible and connected to its effect on the business.
