CHICAGO, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SAVO Group, the market leader in sales enablement, today announced it has been named a silver winner in the "Enterprise Product of the Year - Software" category in the 2013 Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. This announcement comes on the heels of SAVO's successful transformation over the past year, evolving from a single platform to offering multiple software-as-a-service (SaaS) sales enablement applications, helping marketing and sales leaders better equip their teams to be successful and sell smarter.
SAVO has developed a series of sales enablement applications to help drive enterprise revenue and close the gap between sales initiatives and sales execution by harnessing the power of sales process, social collaboration, mobility and key analytics. Its applications offer sales leaders the ability to provide real-time prescriptive feedback to optimize sales conversations at any stage of the sales cycle, more effectively ramp their selling organizations, match messaging content to customer buying cycle stages, align sales processes to critical corporate strategies, and provide key stakeholders with a higher level of confidence in meeting their financial goals.
"The transformation we've been experiencing within the industry makes it essential for sales and marketing leaders to arm their reps with deal-specific information at the right time during the selling cycle, and this prestigious award further validates that the work we are doing is resonating with enterprises and evolving with the industry," said SAVO's Chief Executive Officer Mark O'Connell. "Today's selling environment is challenging, but companies that invest in technologies to help their reps quickly and easily make sense of customer data will give them the strong foundation they need to have a competitive edge in the future."
The third annual Best in Biz Awards program, focusing on companies based or operating in North America, was the most competitive in its history, with the highest number of awards submissions to date and the most distinguished judging panel yet assembled. More than 500 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.
Best in Biz Awards 2013 honors were presented in more than 50 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best Place to Work, Technology Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, Best New Product of the Year, PR Campaign of the Year and Website of the Year.
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2013 were determined by an independent panel of 51 judges from top-tier news, business and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, such as Accounting Today, Arizona Daily Star, Atlanta Tribune, Bloomberg Businessweek, Cascade Business News, Chicago Tribune, Chip Design Magazine, Computerworld, Crain's New York Business, CRN, Dallas Morning News, Dayton Business Journal, Detroit Free Press, ECT News Network, Entrepreneur, eWeek Channel Insider, Executive Travel Magazine, Fast Company, Financial Times, Fortune, Hartford Business Journal, Hartford Courant, Inc.

"What impressed me the most about the winning entries was the way their business plans were geared toward filling real voids in our communities," said Best in Biz Awards judge Evan S. Benn, staff writer at the Miami Herald. "While they all have sound investment platforms, none of the winning plans are get-rich-quick schemes that will only serve investors. They have developed products, tools and ideas that will truly help improve the way we function."
