SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSlide, the leading platform for Sales, Marketing and Customer Success, will hold a webinar with Aragon Research titled "Digitize the Sales Process: Start with Sales Communication" on January 13th from 2:00pm - 2:45pm EST. The webinar will be led by Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst at Aragon Research and Michael Schultz, ClearSlide's VP of Marketing and Business Development.
A big challenge for salespeople today is to engage prospects and customers at the right time, with the right content that moves a sales cycle forward and closes business. Various research studies indicate the only 30 percent of sellers have the strong content they need for sales calls, which is a factor in why more than half of all forecasted deals slip or never close. With the advent of Sales Communications technologies, digital sales engagement is getting easier and enhancing the customer experience at the same time.
This valuable ClearSlide webinar will discuss key digital trends from the Aragon Research Tech Spectrum™ for Sales Communications, how Sales Leaders are beginning to move to Sales Engagement Platforms, and which vendors are making a difference in the space. Organizations that sell with customer insight and targeted sales content can outperform their peers by up to 400 percent (Salesforce 2015 State of Sales report).
Lundy is the founder and CEO of Aragon Research, as well as the Lead Analyst. He has over 29 years of technology and management experience as a vendor, user and analyst. Lundy spent twelve years at Gartner and where he formed and led the Collaboration and Social Software Research Team and served as lead analyst for Enterprise Content Management and Corporate Learning. Prior to founding Aragon Research, Lundy was the VP/General Manager of the Collaboration Business Unit at Saba Software, and spent fifteen years at Xerox Corporation in a variety of software and hardware sales and marketing positions. Lundy has a B.S. in Finance from Penn State University.
Schultz leads Marketing and Business Development for ClearSlide. Prior to ClearSlide, he served as VP of Strategic Alliances at DocuSign, where he built out and managed the company's key partnerships and programs over three years of rapid growth. Schultz spent nearly eight years with Microsoft Corporation in various SaaS product management and marketing roles following the acquisition of PlaceWare web conferencing. He has also held senior positions with other venture-backed and publicly traded companies, and previously worked as a strategy consultant at Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).
