LevelEleven Continues to Build Momentum With New Customers, Hires and Partnerships

New Clients eBay, Forrester Research and Tiffany & Co Reflect Company's Continued Growth in 2014

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - Detroit-based LevelEleven, a leader in sales motivation software, has announced a strong first quarter thanks to major customer wins, strategic partnerships, and dynamic company hires. LevelEleven is an easy-to-use enterprise software tool that creates competitions and leaderboards around sales behaviors and goals that can be transparently tracked via salesforce.com. It is essentially taking the oldest sales management trick in the book, and turning it into a real time experience for sales reps and managers alike. The company's new client roster boasts eBay Inc.'s PayPal, Dun & Bradstreet, Tiffany & Co, Cardinal Health, Forrester Research, Hawaiian Airlines, Shutterstock and QuantCast.

"We needed a unique solution to driving sales performance in an engaging way, and LevelEleven's software immediately fit the bill," said William Frascarelli, Senior Director of Sales Operations at Forrester Research. "LevelEleven has a thoughtful approach to changing sales behaviors and habits by leveraging real time competitions within salesforce.com. That focused philosophy, combined with an app that is incredibly simple to administer and flexible to configure, made it the perfect platform to motivate our sales team."

"Over the past year we've seen mixed feelings on the concept people are calling 'gamification'. We are lumped into that category because of LevelEleven's strong design, but our focus has always been, and will continue to be, to help sales leaders motivate their teams to perform. That approach has resulted in our clients seeing immediate ROI by simply getting their salespeople more focused and therefore more productive. The momentum LevelEleven has seen over the past quarter in terms of new customers and partnerships, is indicative of that approach," notes Bob Marsh, founder and CEO of LevelEleven.

Last quarter LevelEleven also announced a strategic partnership with Xactly, a leading provider of cloud based incentive solutions. The partnership is aimed at better supporting sales managers as they drive optimal behavior amongst their sales teams. The app integration now allows sales managers running contests in LevelEleven to directly integrate commission payment and prizes via Xactly.

"There are hundreds of dynamic and innovative salesforce.com apps available for sales teams, but the large ecosystem and variety of choices can become confusing," said Marsh. "Our goal in aligning with leading salesforce.com app developers like Xactly, is to create a simpler more streamlined experience for sales managers to motivate their sales teams."

LevelEleven is growing internally, too. The company recently hired Scott Shepard as VP of Sales, Mark Eaton as VP of Customer Success, and Kyle Gostinger as Product Manager. LevelEleven is currently hiring; specifically seeking a VP of Marketing in addition to staff across all disciplines including engineering, sales, and marketing. LevelEleven will also continue to leverage their partnership with salesforce.com's work.com product line over the next few months.
