SAN DIEGO, CA – 12 July 2016 – Seismic, the leading enterprise-grade sales enablement solution, today announced that it is a finalist in the 2016 SaaS Awards Program in the category of Best Sales and Marketing Product.
With awards for excellence and innovation in SaaS, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, UK and EMEA. 2016 is the inaugural year for The SaaS Awards program, which is partnered with the annual Cloud Awards, now entering its sixth year.
“As the leading sales enablement solution, Seismic provides unparalleled value for enterprise marketing and sales teams looking to align content designed to accelerate the entire engagement lifecycle and increase win rates,” said Doug Winter, CEO of Seismic. “Considering that Seismic therefore sits at the nexus of sales and marketing, being named a finalist for Best Sales and Marketing Product is a great achievement for the team.”
SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer Larry Johnson said: “The SaaS Awards, unlike the long-running Cloud Awards, which takes a more holistic approach to celebrating excellence in cloud services, is a recognition platform specifically for software solutions. Frankly, it’s about time: in a maturing international marketplace for cloud services, SaaS has proven to be the poster boy for leveraging thin-client technologies, while ensuring end-users are always working at the cutting edge.
The award is the latest in a string of honors for Seismic’s sales enablement solution thus far in 2016, including:
- Being named a Best Document Management Technology finalist in WealthManagement.com’s 2016 Industry Awards (winners will be announced in September).
- Winning Best Strategy: Mobile/Tablet/App Marketing at the 2016 Gramercy Institute Financial Marketing Strategy Awards with customer Vanguard.
- Being honored with a host of best new product awards for its Microsoft Outlook integration, including IT Network Product Guide Awards, American Business Awards, Mobile Star Awards, and Stevie’s Customer Sales and Service Awards.
- Winning Best Client Communications Vendor in the 2016 Family Wealth Report Awards.
“SaaS technologies are revolutionizing how sales and marketing teams interact with customers, prospects, and each other,” said Winter. “Seismic is proud to be recognized in the inaugural SaaS Awards, celebrating this innovative and competitive global market.”
Final SaaS Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday 9 August 2016. Over 200 organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, UK, Europe and the Middle East.
