According to Gartner, the 2013 Cool Vendors in CRM Sales offer new technologies that improve sales performance and effectiveness. They use mobile, social, big data analytics and the cloud to help salespeople improve their selling skills and find new prospects. We are delighted to be included in the list of just three companies that made it through Gartners diligence.
- Cloud applications combined with mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) are enabling salespeople to be more engaged in the sales cycle in real time at the source of the interaction with the customer, thus making them more effective and efficient in capturing, managing and updating information throughout the sales process.
- Internal and external social network intelligence applications are emerging to assist salespeople with finding and developing new sources for lead generation and moving these newfound contacts and opportunities to a quicker close and with greater certainty.
Discontinuous, or sporadic, classroom sales training is approaching a fast demise; sales technology applications that help salespeople use sales methodologies and automate sales processes are showing great promise.
