Program enhancements precede fourth annual Seismic customer conference, Seismic Shift
The announcement of enhancements to Partner Edge comes two weeks prior to Seismic Shift, Seismic’s annual customer conference. A number of ecosystem partners are sponsoring the event, and attendance is expected to double from last year’s conference.
The attendee numbers reflect larger sustained rapid growth for Seismic. 2016 was the fifth consecutive year in which the company experienced triple-digit growth, and Seismic was named the 83rd Fastest Growing Technology Company in the Deloitte Fast 500 in November 2016. A noted leader and innovator in the marketing and sales enablement space, Seismic was recognized as a Leader by Forrester Research in The Forrester Wave™: Sales Enablement Automation Systems, in December 2016.
“Partners recognize that Seismic is the global leader in the marketing and sales enablement space, providing a solution from which customers derive substantial and quantifiable value,” said Chew. “We in-turn provide a similar superlative experience for our valuable ecosystem partners, with our eye squarely focused on providing value for our customers.”
