Integrated Data Capture Capabilities to Improve Leads and Sales
VisualCalc Custom Calculators & Tools provide integrated data capture capabilities that extend these tools beyond point solutions to a comprehensive, end-to-end customer service, lead generation and sales conversion platform.

Analysis results can be used to automatically prepare and send customized follow-up communications (in any client-defined format, such a loan application) to prospects, helping to efficiently move the sales cycle forward.
