Tweetable Quotes:

“I would say that there are three pillars of value in any revenue intelligence platform, and we are no exception. And these are: capturing the data from where it should be captured, putting the data into play and providing the meaningful insights for sales leadership and sales reps, literally guiding them through the next steps.” (04:34)

“Revenue Intelligence is the answer to the question, ‘what?’ While Guided Selling is the response to the question, ‘How?’” (09:05)

“You may think that your problem is with quality of leads. But then, after the analysis, you may figure out that the problem is with the quality of speech you deliver to those leads.” (21:18)

“There is one very interesting conversation I had with a RevOps guru. He said, ‘Look, there are no silver bullets which you may start doing in your sales org that others are not doing. And even if you find that silver bullet, the next day your competitors will be doing the same.’” (36:24)
