Seismic Announces 2015 Seismic Shift Award Winners at 2nd Annual User Conference

Awards Given to Companies That Have Demonstrated Sales and Business Benefits Through the Use of Seismic's Sales Enablement Technology

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2015) - Seismic, the leading sales enablement solution, congratulates the winners of its first Seismic Shift Awards: Intelsat, Lockton Companies, and Westwood. This year's winning companies are being recognized for their innovative use of Seismic's sales enablement platform to transform the sales process at their respective organizations, resulting in shortened sales cycles, improved win rates and increased customer satisfaction.

The awards were presented on November 11th at Seismic Shift, Seismic's 2nd annual user conference, in San Diego. Seismic Shift 2015 hosted a number of interactive breakout sessions and peer networking events that highlighted Seismic's latest product capabilities and showcased real customer use cases and benefits of these updates. The event culminated with a keynote presentation from Jon Miller, CEO and Founder of Engagio and former Co-founder VP of Marketing at Marketo. Jon discussed the growing importance of personalization and how marketing and sales teams can work together to provide personalized sales interactions to prospects and customers:

"Account-based marketing is a strategic approach that coordinates personalized marketing and sales efforts to land and expand specific accounts. Sales has been doing account selling for years, and marketing is now sophisticated enough to do some of the same tactics together with sales." Jon went on to discuss the inner workings of personalized selling with account-based marketing and how attendees can optimize their use of Seismic's platform to achieve high sales and marketing ROI.

Seismic Shift also recognized customers that have optimized their usage of Seismic and experienced high ROI as a result.
