SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviso, the only AI Revenue Intelligence platform that closes the loop from predictive forecasting to turn-by-turn deal guidance, has filed for four new patents in its third quarter, and expanded its leadership team with a new slate of Board Advisors, a Senior Vice President of Product, and Chief of Staff to CEO/Vice President of Special Projects, as it enters Q4 with a blockbuster pipeline for its AI guided virtual selling platform.
Aviso's four new patents focus on advanced machine learning technologies that drastically improve modern revenue teams' ability to manage deal-level and aggregate-level forecasting during current and future "black swan" scenarios.
