A Wake-Up Call for Sales & Marketing: Invest in a Sales Engagement Platform

Aragon Research forecasts that the Sales Engagement Platform (SEP) space is on track to become a $5 billion industry by 2021, up from $780 million in 2016. Given strong market demand, hundreds of sales tools have been developed in recent years, with most supporting only a small part of the selling process. This leaves sellers with the difficult task of trying to knit disconnected tools together.

Join this webinar to learn how you can gain a competitive advantage by moving away from disconnected tools and toward a full Sales Engagement Platform that offers powerful new digital selling capabilities. In this engaging webinar, you will take away insights on the components of a Sales Engagement Platform, how to evaluate digital selling technologies, and actionable next steps for implementation.
