InsideView CEO Umberto Milletti to Co-Host Sales 2.0 Conference

Hundreds of Sales Experts and Leaders Examine Productivity and Efficiency at Flagship Sales Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2010) - Can social intelligence from LinkedIn or Facebook really accelerate the sales cycle? How do you successfully integrate multiple cloud sales productivity solutions to realize a meaningful ROI? And what does it take for sales professionals to work more efficiently to drive better results? Hundreds of sales experts and managers will be discussing these and other topics, as well as exploring the latest sales technologies and strategies next week at the Sales 2.0 Conference in San Francisco, Calif.

InsideView CEO Umberto Milletti and Selling Power founder Gerhard Gschwandtner will open the conference, which fills two days with panels and workshops about how best to revamp their sales organizations with new tools and methodologies to close more deals and drive revenue. Additionally, InsideView customer TriNet will speak to the specific benefits of using SalesView in accelerating new market penetration efforts as well as improving sales productivity ramp-up times -- resulting in significant increases in lifetime customer value. TriNet is a leading provider of human resources outsourcing solutions to small businesses, and added more than 100 small business clients just in the final quarter of 2009.

"The Sales 2.0 Conference is the flagship annual event for the sales profession, and many of the sales productivity challenges we've faced in last year's down economy are perhaps even more relevant as 2010 kicks into higher gear," said Milletti. "What's remarkable is that the technologies to meet these challenges already exist. This year's event will inform and engage sales professionals on how best to incorporate these new capabilities into existing sales processes, accelerate sales cycles and close more deals."

InsideView was also recently named to the Sales 2.0 Alliance, a consortium of six companies providing best-in-class Sales 2.0 solutions and chosen by Selling Power's Gschwandtner. The other members are BigMachines, Kadient, Marketo, Right90 and Xactly Corporation.
