2018 – A Landmark Year for Bigtincan

2018 was a huge year for us at Bigtincan, from significant revenue growth, to the introduction of a number of strategic product enhancements to the platform – including those resulting from acquisitions of microlearning and sales coaching platform, Zunos, as well as sales enablement provider Fatstax – to earning several industry accolades.

In the last year, we continued to rapidly expand our customer base, adding new customers to the platform across market verticals including healthcare, retail, technology, financial services, manufacturing and telecom, including American Express, Anheuser Busch, Broadcom/CA, McKesson, Major League Baseball and Campbell’s Soup.

With an emphasis on innovation and rapid development, we introduced several enhancements, extensions and updates to the platform in 2018 to help sales teams compete in the digital economy. These include the introduction of Bigtincan’s first vertical-specific solution, targeted at the life sciences sector: Bigtincan Life Sciences, Day Zero support for GDPR, and Bigtincan for Salesforce, a new SaaS solution for Salesforce.com users based on ontologies. We also made two acquisitions in 2018 to help further our platform capabilities and customer reach. Following the acquisition of Zunos in June 2018, we introduced enhanced micro-learning capabilities to Bigtincan Hub as part of our fall update. Additionally, with the acquisition of Fatstax in September 2018, Bigtincan is set to become the first sales enablement platform that lets businesses map their entire buyer journey from CRM to field and inside sellers. This acquisition also expanded Bigtincan’s existing sales enablement offerings as well as established our presence in the Midwestern region of the United States.  

In 2018, Bigtincan’s leadership position in the sales enablement and learning market was also validated by a number of analyst and industry recognitions. Key milestones included acknowledgment by MarTech Breakthrough for Bigtincan’s innovative sales enablement solution; ranking as one of the top 15 sales enablement solutions for 2019 according to Selling Power; winning Bronze for Sales Enablement by the Stevie Awards; emerging as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Sales Enablement Automation Platforms, Q3 2018; recognition as a leader in Aragon Research’s Globe for Sales Engagement; and being named to Gartner’s Market Guide for Digital Content Management for Sales, in all 13 listed industry verticals.

“Bigtincan’s impressive performance and growth in 2018 further demonstrates why our platform is the top sales enablement choice when it comes to empowering sales teams to drive ROI,” said David Keane, Co-founder and CEO of Bigtincan. “In 2019, we are laser-focused on continued innovation and growth to provide a superior solution to support today’s sales teams across industry verticals.”
