FOSTER CITY, CA--(Marketwired - July 14, 2016) - Conversica, the only provider of artificial intelligence-based lead engagement software for sales and marketing, announced today its platinum sponsorship of the 2016 Sales 2.0 Conference, being held July 18-19 at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco. On Monday afternoon, Sell and Succeed founder Ben Chaib will be speaking about his success using Conversica's automated sales assistant at the Los Angeles Film School and will be sharing how artificial intelligence helps salespeople dramatically boost their performance.
"Conversica is on the cutting edge of AI in sales with their virtual assistant that works quickly and easily to engage and qualify leads, just like a human salesperson. It is the quality of conversation with every lead that offers salespeople more time to focus on what they do best...selling," says Gerhard Gschwandtner, conference chairman and CEO of Selling Power.
On Monday afternoon, Chaib and Conversica's Gary Gerber, head of product marketing, will present a startling insight into the minds of successful sales organizations in their session entitled "Zombies May Destroy the World, but Artificial Intelligence Will Crush Your Quota." Their presentation will demonstrate the effectiveness of using artificial intelligence -- no longer the realm of science fiction -- to help salespeople dramatically boost their chances of success.
"Sales 2.0 attendees should definitely come to my session to learn how I became a selling monster by working smart and deploying an AI-based sales assistant," said Chaib. "Our assistant Stephanie made sure the sales team spent their time talking only to people interested in buying from them. It was a no-brainer!"
"We are especially excited to be sponsoring this year's Sales 2.0 Conference in San Francisco and sharing the stage with Ben Chaib, one of our hundreds of customers who have boosted their revenue by incorporating an automated assistant in their sales process," says Alex Terry, Conversica's CEO.
Conversica will be showing the assistant automatically engaging sales leads in real time at the company's booth. Conference attendees who book a demo in advance at calendly.com/conversica/sales2-0/07-12-2016 will be rewarded with a free Samsung tablet.

Conversica is the only provider of lead engagement software for marketing and sales organizations powered by artificial intelligence. Conversica's automated sales assistant automatically contacts, engages, nurtures, qualifies and follows up with leads via natural, two-way email conversations until the lead converts into an opportunity or opts out. The sales assistant interprets the lead's intention and sentiment in email replies and extracts key information, such as phone numbers and the best time to call, answers questions, and then expertly hands off the lead to the appropriate salesperson to close the deal. As a result, Conversica customers find their next customers more quickly and efficiently, with no leads left behind.
Used by more than 14,000 sales representatives worldwide, Conversica maximizes sales opportunities by optimizing sales team productivity and has helped create more than $8 billion in revenue.
