SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2017) - Seismic, the leading enterprise-grade sales enablement solution, announced today that 2016 saw year-over-year growth in new revenue bookings top 100 percent, the fifth year in a row the company has achieved triple-digit growth. Net customer retention in 2016 also exceeded 100 percent among Seismic's 200+ enterprise customer base using the platform to deliver the right content to the right sales rep at the right time.
"Our sustained growth is a direct result of a customer base that is passionate about leading the way in sales and marketing alignment, and a team here at Seismic that is devoted to their success," said Doug Winter, Seismic CEO and co-founder. "We are confident that we will be able to maintain this momentum in 2017, as more large enterprises realize the benefits that come with their marketing and sales teams working towards the same common goals."
Following office expansions in multiple locations throughout the country in 2016 -- including San Francisco, Chicago, New York City, and the company's San Diego headquarters--Seismic also announced today the expansion of its office space in Boston, located at 239 Causeway Street. The new space will be used to accommodate forecasted regional growth in headcount in 2017.
