We have all seen how the sales landscape has dramatically changed over the last few years, particularly the resources that are now required for sales teams to be effective. Out with the power-point presentations, media packs, and brochures, in with storytelling, video content, and sales enablement platforms. Yes, sales enablement, a term that divides opinion on its meaning but not on its effectiveness. The clue within the description points to the fact that if you can leverage the right platform the results will follow.
What is sales enablement and how can it help us?
Simply put, sales enablement arms a sales team with the information, content, and tools required to drive customer engagement, and most importantly, sell!
Over 75% of companies using sales enablement tools indicated that sales increased over the past 12 months, with nearly 40% reporting growth of more than 25%.
Effective sales and marketing alignment

If there is one singular business challenge that it helps overcome, it is that it breaks down the barriers and closer aligns sales and marketing teams with the overall business objectives. The fundamental rule to follow is that sales enablement is jointly owned by sales and marketing. In today’s world, providing buyers with the right content at the right time is the principle, sales teams being equipped to do this through an interactive experience has proven to be an ideal sales enablement solution.
