Leading social enterprise began seeing sales productivity benefits within one month with Seismic

SAN DIEGO, April 5, 2018 – Seismic today announced that the company has enacted rapid implementation of their leading global sales and marketing enablement solution at social enterprise Classy. Through Seismic’s Velocity onboarding and implementation program, Classy was up and running with Seismic and seeing the sales productivity benefits associated with the platform in less than 30 days.

“As is often indicative of successful growing companies, Classy recognizes the importance of productivity-enhancing solutions that can be implemented efficiently, particularly when it comes to assisting their sales team close bigger deals and further contribute to growth,” said Doug Winter, Seismic co-founder and CEO. “We are proud of our combined teams’ ability to work together to achieve that with Seismic, and we look forward to further contributing to Classy’s success as they continue to scale.”

A leading nonprofit fundraising platform, Classy sought a sales enablement solution that could be quickly implemented to immediately start generating productivity results for their sales team. Within 26 days, Classy was able to centralize all sales content in Seismic from various existing content repositories and ensure that it would be automatically available to sellers whenever and wherever they needed it. This included Seismic integrations with SalesLoft and Salesforce, which also offers personalized recommendations as to what piece of content to send to each buyer.

“Our sales team now spends much less time searching for the most relevant pieces of content that help move the needle, as they know it will be there waiting for them in Salesforce, SalesLoft, and Seismic,” said Sean Chisholm, VP of Operations and Strategy at Classy. “They are taking that time saved and using it to focus on developing more productive relationships with buyers, which better contributes to our company’s success—and ultimately our clients’ fundraising success.”

Classy’s ambitions with Seismic have not ended with automatically equipping sellers with the ability to have the right pieces of content at the right time. More recently, the company has implemented Seismic’s LiveDocs® technology, which empowers sellers to create personalized sales content within seconds while ensuring that such content is always on-brand and updated. The result is even more time saved for sellers who no longer need to seek marketing’s approval for changes made to content, and a guarantee for marketers that the integrity of Classy’s branding will be upheld in the field.
