Leading end-to-end sales enablement solution awarded Best SaaS Product for Sales / Marketing

San Diego – August 10, 2016 – Seismic, the leading end-to-end sales enablement solution for enterprises, is a winner in the 2016 SaaS Awards Program in the category of Best SaaS Product for Sales/Marketing.

Over 200 organizations entered the 2016 Software-as-a-Service Awards, which highlights excellence and innovation in SaaS, including entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, UK, Europe and the Middle East. 2016 is the inaugural year for The SaaS Awards program, which is partnered with the annual Cloud Awards, now entering its sixth year.

“We are excited to have been named a winner in the inaugural SaaS Awards, particularly in a category as competitive as the Best SaaS Product for Sales/Marketing,” said Doug Winter, CEO and co-founder at Seismic. “Both Seismic customers and the industry at large are realizing the benefits that come with equipping sales reps with the right content at the right time, and this award reflects Seismic’s superlative ability to help large enterprises accelerate sales cycles and improve win rates.”

Sales enablement continues to be a hot area within sales and marketing teams and a top priority among enterprise executives. A recent CSO Insights/Seismic study found that 61 percent of sales enablement teams report directly into executive sales management, and enterprises expect to see increases in revenue, increased win rates, and new account acquisitions as a direct result of their sales enablement programs, among other key initiatives. Seismic also recently found that 76 percent of enterprises plan on implementing technologies that can help with sales enablement by the end of the year.

“After a lot of hard work, we are thrilled to be able to announce the final list of winners – a collection of some of the brightest and best solutions in the SaaS space today,” said SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson. “What makes us happier than anything else is to see such a varied mix of the excellence and innovation that quite literally covers the globe. It’s an international party to which any service offering is invited. We look forward to celebrating more excellence in the 2016-17 Cloud Awards, which is now open for submissions.”

In addition to Best Sales/Marketing Product, categories for the 2016 awards program include Best SaaS Product for Small Business, Best SaaS Product for Productivity, and Best Data-Driven SaaS Product.
