SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2016) - Seismic, the leading enterprise-grade sales enablement solution, has been named a silver winner in the Enterprise Service of the Year category in the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Seismic's end-to-end sales enablement solution helps large enterprises deliver the right content to the right sales rep at the right time, increasing sales efficiency and marketing effectiveness. Judges evaluated entrants on areas such as recent product upgrades, and Seismic has continued to launch major innovations in 2015 and 2016 that has kept the solution ahead of competitors. In September 2015, Seismic released their Outlook plug-in, ensuring sales reps have access to the right content right from within their Outlook account and which has gone on to win an IT Network Product Guide Award, and American Business Award, a Mobile Star Award, and a Stevie's Customer Sales and Service Award.
2016 saw the launch of WorkSpace, a virtual collaboration forum for sales teams to come together and prepare and finalize content for important meetings and presentations, and in May, a commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Seismic found a 578 percent return on investment for organizations deploying the company's sales enablement solution.
The sixth annual program in North America garnered more than 600 entries, from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2016 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best Place to Work, Technology Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, Best New Product of the Year, App of the Year, PR Campaign of the Year and Website of the Year.
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2016 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 50 judges from widely known newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, TV outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to numerous judges returning from the 2011-2015 judging panels, this year's panel included several worthy additions to the high-profile group.
