Signals & temperatures

A signal is an event connected to a company. The term “signal” is derived from the commonly used sales term “buy-signal”, picked up by the sales rep. when interacting with a prospect. A typical signal in Lime Go is a recommendation, ingeniously called “Lime Go recommendation”. A signal comes with a “strength”, between 1-99, to indicate how interesting the signal is for you.

To start with we will give you new recommendations once a week, with a fresh batch waiting for you every Monday morning.

You need to have at least one company that has the relationship status Customer, but the more customers the better recommendations. Relationship status Customer is indicated by a heart on the company card.

Lime Go has a recommendation engine that works with parameters derived from your existing customers. Depending on what your customer base looks like, the algorithm will find patterns and recommend other companies.

Why a company's temperature drops

The idea is to enable users to work with companies that are “hot”, and those are indicated with a high temperature in Lime Go.

By letting the temperature drop in Lime Go (with the lack of incoming signals) on less interesting companies, users may be guided to the hot companies (which has frequent signals) and find new prospects.

In 14 days, a company will drop from 99°S to 22°S, if no signals are generated during this time. The cooling process is fast for high temperatures and a company will only hold a really high temperature for the first few hours.

An example: Let’s pretend that a signal strength generates a temperature of 42 degrees on a company. Over the next couple of days the temperature drops to 16 degrees, until the next signal arrives and increase the temperature again to 58 degrees.
