SAN FRANCISCO, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSlide, the Sales Engagement Platform leader, today announced it will co-host a webinar with Aragon Research entitled "A Wake-up Call for Sales & Marketing: Invest in a Sales Engagement Platform," at 10 a.m. PT on Wednesday, July 27. The 60-minute webinar will be led by Jim Lundy, CEO and lead analyst at Aragon Research and Michael Schultz, VP of Marketing for ClearSlide.
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 sales reps using between 5 and 8 individual enablement tools each day just to get work done. Despite this tool proliferation, recent research shows that 65 percent of Sales Leaders say that the lack of proper sales tools leads to lengthened sales cycles.
Drawing from Aragon Research's latest report for this webinar – Digitize the Sales Force: Leverage Sales Engagement Platforms to Gain a Competitive Advantage – Lundy and Schultz will outline how the business of selling is being won by teams who leverage integrated engagement platforms, rather than disconnected point solutions, to serve customers in our increasingly digital and always-on world. Attendees will come away understanding the various components of an effective SEP, how to evaluate the available technologies and providers, and actionable tips for realizing maximum benefit from modern platforms.
