Bigtincan Heralds the Death of Dull Sales Presentations
The company, in partnership with ScrollMotion, launches Bigtincan Studio, empowering sales enablement teams to easily create, deliver, and measure interactive content on mobile devices that drive more impactful customer engagements.
BOSTON, Mass. – May 18, 2016 – Bigtincan, the leader in mobile sales enablement solutions, and ScrollMotion, the leader in interactive content creation, today announce the availability of Bigtincan StudioTM powered by ScrollMotion, a web-based module for creating interactive content for mobile devices. Bigtincan Studio is fully integrated into the Bigtincan HubTM, providing the first complete, end-to-end enterprise-grade solution for creating, managing, distributing, and measuring the use of rich media content.
An often-overlooked aspect of sales enablement is onboarding and training, where traditional slideware and PDFs fall short. According to CSO Insights, 87% of training content is forgotten within 30 days. By contrast, interactive content has been proven to significantly boost retention, leading to more effective training, and ultimately, to greater sales results.
“Engaging, interactive content gives salespeople an unfair advantage over their competition,” said David Keane, CEO of bigtincan. “Sales and marketing leaders have been clamoring for a tool their teams can use to easily create and update native interactive materials themselves, instead of paying dearly for custom apps. Bigtincan Studio enables content creators to give their sales teams an incredible edge, without getting bogged down by computer programming or cumbersome design tools. It’s the long-overdue end of ‘death by slideware’.”
Bigtincan has partnered with ScrollMotion to integrate their interactive content creation and rendering technology into the Bigtincan platform. The two companies are members of Apple’s Mobility Partner Program, forged last year to help businesses transform the way they work. ScrollMotion Chief Technical Officer, Alan Braun, worked with both companies while at Apple and helped engineer the integration between the two products.
“One of my key responsibilities at Apple was to play matchmaker, combining companies’ strengths to create even more transformative solutions for businesses,” said Braun, who ran the Innovation Lab for Apple’s Mobility Partner Program. “I’m so excited about the combination of ScrollMotion and Bigtincan. Now companies can leverage our interactive creation tools within Bigtincan’s robust delivery platform. It’s the best of both worlds, and changes the way businesses train, present, and sell.”
