SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  Today, at The Sales 2.0 Conference (www.sales20conf.com/sf2010), the TAS Group (www.thetasgroup.com), the world leader in sales performance automation, announced Dealmaker® Genius, a free Sales 2.0 application that automatically generates a unique, fully developed sales process for any business. By answering a few simple questions, anyone can get a customized sales process built on decades of sales knowledge from The TAS Group. Dealmaker Genius uses over 20,000 core knowledge elements and more than one million possible combinations to help companies create the ideal sales process for a given product, service, and industry, in less than 15 minutes -- for free. Dealmaker Genius is available immediately to users worldwide at www.dealmakergenius.com.

Third party research and The TAS Group's empirical data consistently show that companies who use a quality sales process perform at a higher level. To inform its sales process algorithms, the Dealmaker Genius knowledge base combines 20 years' sales process experience with aggregated usage and success patterns observed through over two million sales cycles processed through the Dealmaker Sales Performance Automation platform.
