Seismic Named a Leader in Sales Enablement Automation by Independent Research Firm
Company received highest score possible for user experience and execution road map
SAN DIEGO, December 6, 2016 – Seismic, the leading enterprise-grade sales enablement solution, announced that they have been recognized as a Leader by Forrester Research in The Forrester Wave™: Sales Enablement Automation Systems, Q4 2016.
Seismic was among the nine select vendors Forrester Research invited to participate in the report. Vendors were evaluated on 33 criteria via vendor surveys, product demos, and customer references. The report analyzes solutions based on criteria in three main categories: strategy, market presence, and current offering.
In naming Seismic a Leader, the report notes, “For content administration and management, Seismic has all of the bells and whistles: decomposition of PowerPoints and PDFs into individual pages; in-depth workflows for reviews and approvals; and rapid assembly of customized content, which gets automatic updates as it changes.”
“Our team at Seismic works tirelessly to ensure that customers are realizing the benefits of a sales enablement solution unparalleled in the market in terms of helping deliver the right content to the right sales rep at the right time,” said Doug Winter, Seismic CEO and co-founder. “We believe that this is reflected by Seismic being named a Leader in a report of such high quality and reputation as the Forrester Wave.”
The fourth quarter has seen a rapid succession of major analyst reports citing Seismic’s position as a representative vendor in the sales enablement market. On October 20, Seismic was listed in Gartner’s Market Guide for Digital Content Management for Sales, and on October 5, Aragon Research named Seismic a leader in their Aragon Research’s Globe™ for Sales Engagement Platforms.
In May, a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Seismic found a 578 percent return on investment for organizations deploying the company’s sales enablement solution (“The Total Economic Impact™ Of The Seismic Sales Enablement Platform”).
“Seismic remains the only true end-to-end sales enablement platform for enterprises, playing an essential role in each stage of the sales content creation lifecycle,” said Winter. “As the first set of major analyst reports on the bourgeoning sales enablement landscape continue to be published, it is my view that research firms are recognizing the significant advantage this gives Seismic over competitors.”
