“We selected Altify to increase our sales velocity and help accelerate our business,” noted Steven Birdsall, EVP and chief revenue officer of Radial. “The new Altify Summer ‘17 release makes it easy for us to customize opportunity management, map key account relationships, and get the whole team involved in selling to and servicing the customer.”
“Our ambition is to help all businesses around the globe communicate with customers and colleagues in any language,” said Jane Freeman, regional sales director of SDL. “We’ve been impressed by the team’s vision and ability to translate our strategic goals into realistic sales outcomes.

Summer Release Featured Highlights:
The Altify Platform Summer ‘17 release includes three major enhancements developed in response to customer demand: more advanced Relationship Maps that expose the influence level of key buyers and provide real-time insights, collaboration capabilities for the entire go-to-market team, and internationalization of the platform through new languages.
- Relationship Maps – Navigate and Connect to the People Who Matter:
Altify’s updated Relationship Maps present prospective buyers in the context of their position in the corporate hierarchy, strongest relationships, and purchasing authority — allowing salespeople to identify the right targets. Relationship Maps also provide real-time coaching about how to most effectively engage with important buyers, so salespeople have step-by-step decision-making expertise. Altify’s recent Business Performance Benchmark Study revealed that accessing key buyers increases win rates by 23 percent — the number one factor for sales success. With the new release, salespeople can target the right buyers immediately and engage effectively for faster sales and better results.
- Collaborative Selling – Align the Entire Team Around the Customer:
The Altify Platform Summer ‘17 release also adds new collaboration capabilities to align sales and marketing, executives, customer success, legal, and operations as customers move through the sales cycle. Forty-three percent of participants in the Business Performance Benchmark Study reported that they did not believe marketers understand their customers. Collaborative selling through the Altify Platform brings the entire organization together through shared knowledge and communication to identify the processes that drive the best results.
- Internationalization – Sell in the Local Language:
Altify now supports every Salesforce standard language, including both direct translations and regional terminology. This allows sales organizations the flexibility to manage their opportunities and accounts in their local language, as well as customize the platform to their unique sales process. The Altify Platform can be programmed so that users in each region automatically interact with their local language. Account Plans, Relationship Maps, labels, and more are also customizable, enabling organizations to sell in their own language and win the deals that matter.
