The Consumerization of Sales

This article originally appeared in MarTech Advisor  Three weeks out from #SDSummit and my mind is still reeling from my week in Vegas. Sure, I could blame it on the grandeur that is the Venetian (and how I didn’t leave the building once until my last day), but that isn’t what keeps distracting me from my coffee. After spending years at an organization that doesn’t attend conferences, my memory of them became fuzzy. Stale booths with stale conversations and stale food — that’s all I remember. Sirius was different. Sirius was electric. Sirius was about the people. Emotionally intelligent, genuinely engaged people. So, here’s what’s racing through my mind on this rainy Boston morning. Adoption is not the same as utilization This is a topic I’m constantly obsessing over. I run this seminar from time to time for executives and leaders called Mobility in Reality. For years, I’ve watched organizations

Big week for Bigtincan

Last week was an exciting one for Bigtincan as we attended the SiriusDecisions Summit in Las Vegas and the Salesforce World Tour London event. At both events last week, we showcased our Hub technology and explained how it works to help sales people to win more deals and get more done everyday. We were amazed by how many of you came up to us at the booth to say that you had heard about the Hub on our blog and social channels – so we wanted to take a minute to say Thank You! It was also very exciting to meet so many of our customers and to be able to talk to you about how the Hub is helping your teams. It was helpful and inspiring for us to hear about the very interesting enhancements to the Hub that you would like to see in future release – so

The Top Two Ways Sales Enablement Drives Business ROI

This article originally appeared in Business2Community Sales teams are the lifeblood of business. Whether sitting in an inside sales call center, meeting customers in a B2B situation or a hybrid rep working from a home office – no matter how much the internet influences buyers, without a sales person guiding a prospect through the purchase decision, the results are almost always sub-optimal. But gaining real world ROI is about more than just employing lots of sales people. Organizations need to think about how they can improve the productivity of the people they already have, and – as they grow the sales team – how they can help individuals better perform with a focus on improved win rates and customer satisfaction. It’s no longer enough for sales operations to focus on the traditional approach to sales team productivity – group sales training, working with marketing to create sales product flyers and

Top Five Capabilities Sales People Need to Give Winning Presentations – #1 The Ability to Present from Any Device, Anywhere

We’ve reached the end of our blog series on the five key capabilities sales people need to give winning presentations. Today we’re sharing the number one capability that is vital for delivering the most effective and powerful presentations – the ability to present from any device, anywhere. Every sales person knows how important it is to be ready to engage with a prospect from their desk, the meeting room, a Starbucks or even on a transcontinental flight. When presenting, it’s critical that all the key materials are available and ready to be used online or offline, in-person or remotely. Remote sales teams need technical support more than others, which is why we integrated presentation broadcasting technology into Bigtincan Hub, allowing a sales person to share their presentation without having to start a WebEx, have the customer install software or download an app. But what’s key here again is that, while
