Qvidian Wins Best in Biz 2013 Award

Sales Execution Software Awarded for Innovation in "Enterprise Product of the Year - Software" Category

CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2013) - Qvidian, the innovator in sales execution solutions, today announced it was named a silver winner in the "Enterprise Product of the Year - Software" category in the 2013 Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. Qvidian's cloud-based Sales Playbooks and Sales Analytics solutions allow sales teams to quickly adapt to any sales situation helping to ensure effective sales execution.

"Today's buyers are much more informed, before ever speaking with sales teams, and salespeople need to provide more relevant information and greater value in order to differentiate and close deals," said Christopher Faust, Chief Marketing Officer at Qvidian. "To further complicate sales execution, deals are more complex and sales teams are struggling to transform in order to achieve an organization's desired business outcomes. However, most sales enablement tools and sales portal providers fall short of solving the real problem -- driving sales behavior through diverse selling situations while aligning to the buyer's process. Qvidian is solving these complex business problems for customers."

Qvidian Sales Playbooks is a deeply dynamic selling framework that delivers intelligent guidance, sales best practices, and selling content aligned to buyer stages, that is tailored to each unique selling situation. The Company's innovative solution enables sales teams to more quickly adapt to changes in the selling process, automatically updating guidance and resources as deals change and evolve, and delivers the most relevant, deal-specific content, resources, and coaching for each step in the sales process so salespeople do not have to search.

"Qvidian continues to prove how our unique technology can accelerate the ability for sales teams to close more business and shorten sales cycles by dynamically replicating best practices across an entire sales organization," said Lewis Miller, President of Qvidian. "We are honored that the Best in Biz judges have recognized Qvidian as an innovator in the industry focused on delivering real value to customers."
