Combined Offering Accelerates the Sales Process and Delivers Custom Strategies Directly to the Seller

LOWELL, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 23, 2012) -  Qvidian, the market leader in cloud-based sales effectiveness applications, and the Alexander Group (AGI), a leading sales management consulting firm, today announced a partnership to provide sales organizations with the ability to close more deals by streamlining sales complexity during the entire sales process.

By coupling AGI's best-in-class sales process consulting with Qvidian's Sales Playbooks & Analytics cloud-based application, sales and marketing leaders will be able to dynamically deliver tailored content to their sales teams at the right time during the sales process.
