ClearSlide Named 2016 Sales Engagement Innovator by Aragon Research
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 2, 2016 – ClearSlide, the Sales Engagement Platform leader, today announced it was named 2016 Sales Engagement Innovator by Aragon Research. This award follows ClearSlide’s recognition as Leader in the Aragon Research Globe™ for Sales Engagement Platforms: Sales is the Spearhead for Digital Transformation. This ground-breaking report outlines how sales efforts are being won by teams leveraging highly-integrated Sales Engagement Platforms (SEPs), rather than disconnected point solutions, to serve customers in our increasingly digital, always-on world.
“We’re honored by this latest award from Aragon Research and the continued recognition for leading the Sales Engagement market,” said Dustin Grosse, CEO, ClearSlide. “Our entire team has worked tirelessly to innovate and deliver a SEP used by thousands of companies around the world. We focus on making every customer interaction successful by delivering the most complete engagement system that integrates content, communications and actionable engagement insights.”
Aragon Research estimates that the market for SEPs will grow from $780 million today to $5 billion by 2021. Aragon reports that organizations using SEPs, such as ClearSlide, drive faster sales cycles with reps digitally equipped to respond to signals of interest from prospects.
“Aragon Research Innovators are the market pioneers who are truly ahead of their peers, and ClearSlide is innovating the market to make systems of engagement a must-have investment for every modern sales, marketing and service team,” said Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst, Aragon Research. “Aragon Research recognized ClearSlide as the Innovator because it was the first to offer a complete Sales Engagement Platform – and with the ION Release, we see ClearSlide continuing to transform how sales and marketing teams operate.”
