    Thomas Cox, Director of Sales Operations at Velocify
    The “sharing economy,” with perhaps the best known example being Uber, is fundamentally changing the way the world works. Uber’s transformative business model brings down the cost of transportation and creates a better overall experience for consumers through better utilization of drivers to match consumer demand.

Buyers want control and convenience whether they are looking for a ride to the airport or purchasing a software product for their business. Join in this discussion as we draw parallels to lessons that Inside Sales teams can leverage to better optimize their own sales processes to meet evolving buyer expectations.
