Sales Engagement Platforms Are The New Frontier Of B2B Selling

Published By: Outreach.io     Published Date: Apr 09, 2018
Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.

Published By: Outreach.io     Published Date: Apr 09, 2018

The Total Economic Impact of PayScale

Published By: Payscale, Inc     Published Date: Apr 04, 2018
Prior to using PayScale, each customer set compensation ranges through a mix of gut feel and resource-heavy compensation data management. Resource constraints lengthened compensation review cycles that resulted in either abbreviated cycles or multiyear review gaps. Incomplete compensation reviews and poor data quality led to more compensationrelated issues with current employees and prospective recruits: longer recruitment cycle times, higher recruiting costs, reduced employee satisfaction, and increased turnover.

2018 Customer Service Trends: How Operations Become Faster, Cheaper — And Yet, More Human

Published By: LogMeIn     Published Date: Feb 27, 2018
Customer service organizations are struggling to react to the pace of innovation and the explosion of channels and devices. To get ahead of these challenges, AD&D pros must deeply invest in automation — automated answers, automated conversations, automated agent guidance, and automated end-to-end processes. They must also invest in intelligence to ensure automated technologies evolve and learn from prior interactions over time. Automation and intelligence quell the headcount increases. They will free agents from working on low-value or repetitive tasks, as they will only have to address highly complex customer scenarios or exceptions to standard operations. This also enables them to focus on building connections with customers to garner their satisfaction and loyalty.

IDC Report: Cloudian HyperFile Brings Enterprise NAS Functionality Closer to Object-Based Storage

Published By: Cloudian     Published Date: Feb 15, 2018
As the volume of unstructured data created and used continues to increase rapidly, organizations are faced with challenges around data storage. In response, many new technologies — specifically objectbased storage, software-defined storage, all-flash arrays, and cloud-based storage services — are experiencing rapid adoption. Yet object-based storage has been limited by the need to rewrite existing file-based applications — a prospect that is costly and requires more manpower than is practical for many organizations. Cloudian offers both an object storage platform and more recently an enterprise file services product. When deployed together, Cloudian's products are designed to consolidate file and object data into a single repository and can enable organizations to manage environments that span the cloud as well as on-premises.
