did you think of today’s win?

Na Rin
An (NRA): It took me four years to earn my first win (at the Autech Carrier
Championship 2020) a month ago, but here I am picking up a second win, which is
earlier than I expected to win again. I’m really glad about it. I will work
even harder from now on.


looked a little shaky on the final day of your first win even though you had a
10-shot lead. However, you performed differently today and was really calm
throughout. What were your motivations for this tournament?

For the Autech Carrier Championship last month, I was very nervous on the final
round since I didn’t have any experience in winning the tournament. I think that’s
why my play didn’t work out the way I wanted it to.

I tried to focus more on my own game today and this worked out really well with
a good result.


strategies about the wind and cold weather?

I’ve experienced a lot of tournament courses with strong wind for the past
month, and these experiences helped me a lot in doing well at this championship.


started playing golf from middle school and it’s been 10 years since you
started playing golf. Is there any special secret to your growth?

started playing golf since September/October 2009. When I look back, I think I
was very diligent and sincere, trying to focus more on my work. There is nothing
special about my golf except the steady practice.


were you thinking after your first bogey made at the 17th hole?

Obviously, I made my first bogey today on the 17th hole, and I was nervous when
I was having the bogey putt. Anyway, I tried to focus on the game after that and
thought to myself, “I wish to go in the direction of losing with as few strokes
as possible”. This turned out nicely with a great result.

has changed for you this year from last year?

Statistically, my record of greens in regulation improved. I’ve been changing
my swings steadily and my body got used to it, so I think this is the reason
why my games are going well.

changing my swings, the ball contacts were not constant, leading me to a low
rate of greens in regulation.


If you
win the next tournament, you can win the title of “2020 KLPGA Tour Prize Money
Winner”. Do you think you can win this?

will be good for me to earn the title, but for the last tournament, I will focus
on my game and playing rather than to earn the tile.


you interested in playing overseas in other tours?

am keen on playing in overseas tours when I get the opportunity to do so. This
is because I want to gain more experience. I want to develop my game further
before venturing to play in an overseas tour.


you satisfied with your iron shots currently?

think I’m more satisfied with my iron shots at the Autech Carrier Championship last
month rather than at this tournament. It was also very windy then, but it was
not really cold. However, at this tournament, the wind was very strong, and the
weather was very cold. This led me to make more missed shots.


are your plans on using the prize money from this tournament?

Last night before the last round, I had chance to talk to my mom about a car.
My mom actually told me that she would buy the car for me if I win once more.
Today I have won the tournament, so I will tell my mom that we can get a car.


are your goals for the next tournament?

will try as hard as I can to get the best result possible by using up all my
energy and power.


is your driving force for the win?

would say it’s my family. I gain more power and strength through the support of
my parents and my younger sibling.


would you like to be known as the player Na Rin An?

Diligent and sincere golfer who works hard. A player who actively pursuits her
own goal and successfully completes her own task and role.

SugarCRM Launches SugarPredict to Take the Guesswork Out of Sales with AI for All

CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA - Media OutReach - 28 January 2021 - SugarCRM Inc., the innovator of time-aware CX, today announced the launch of SugarPredict, the first data-fueled AI for CRM. SugarPredict delivers new levels of prediction accuracy without the time, cost, and technical expertise typically required for companies to take advantage of AI.


Fifty-two percent of sales leaders say their CRM is costing them lost revenue, according to new research from SugarCRM that examines the lack of customer visibility that plagues most companies. The quality and consistency of the data entered by CRM users can create challenges for basic AI systems. SugarPredict takes a different approach by enriching customer data with additional attributes that results in more comprehensive and consistent AI models. SugarPredict provides accurate predictions, even with limited first-party data, while diligently guarding the privacy and security of company and customer information.


"AI can solve a number of sales and marketing barriers today, putting it at the heart of CRM," said Paul Greenberg, president of the 56 Group and author of CRM at the Speed of Light. "Sales teams that lean into AI-powered CRM can take advantage of the lead insights and opportunity models that give them a significant competitive advantage." 


As the first of many SugarPredict-powered capabilities in Sugar Sell, the technology is being used to take the guesswork out of lead prioritization, lead Ideal Customer Profile (ICP) alignment, and opportunity-to-close-won scoring. SugarPredict analyzes historical account, deal, and company data to accurately predict which leads are most likely to become customers. Lead scoring is based on similarity to historical conversions (converted leads or closed-won opportunities), while ideal customer profile matching identifies leads that are similar to a company's past and current customer bases.


"SugarPredict helps companies replace a fragmented, out-of-date, and incomplete picture with a sharply focused understanding of both their customers and business," said Craig Charlton, CEO of SugarCRM. "We've made significant product investments, over the last year, to democratize AI to drive business performance and enable predictability for companies of all sizes."


"Like many companies in the manufacturing business Bishop-Wisecarver is always looking for ways to work smarter and faster than the competition", said Niegel Leoncio, CRM Manager for Bishop-Wisecarver. "We are excited about the launch of SugarPredict, which places the power of AI into the hands of sales and service teams so they can drive better results and a better customer experience."   


SugarPredict leverages Sugar's time-aware CX platform which provides a full historical record of all change events related to customers and customer-facing processes. SugarPredict for sales force automation, marketing automation, and customer service applications is based on technology from last summer's acquisition of SugarPredict is free for Sugar Sell customers and will roll out to Sugar Market and Sugar Serve customers later this year.
