Brainshark Named a Leader in First-Ever Aragon Research Globe for Sales Engagement Platforms

Brainshark Recognized for Helping Sales Reps Have Better Conversations and Close More Deals

Waltham, Mass. – October 5, 2016 – Brainshark, Inc., delivering SaaS-based sales enablement solutions, today announced its position as a leader in the inaugural Aragon Research Globe for Sales Engagement Platforms, published today. The report – one of the first comprehensive assessments of the sales engagement industry – includes an analysis of the market, as well as a rigorous review and graphical categorization of its component vendors, conducted by technology research and advisory firm Aragon Research.

As defined in the report, sales engagement platforms “are poised to become the digital selling toolkit for the sales organization,” with capabilities for sales content management, communications, presentations, partner apps/integrations and advanced analytics. Aragon closely evaluated 20 companies on how they help sales teams more effectively engage with prospects and customers – examining the vendors’ strategies, market performance and reach. Commanding market share of what Aragon predicts will be a $5 billion industry by 2021, leaders – the highest designation – “have comprehensive strategies that align with industry direction and market demand, and effectively perform against those strategies,” according to the report.

Praised for its video content creation, sales onboarding, continuous training, coaching and buyer engagement capabilities, Brainshark provides comprehensive solutions that help sales teams close more deals faster. Extensive analytics give valuable insight into how deals are won – tying rep knowledge and content to sales results. Brainshark’s designation from Aragon comes on the heels of other recognition from the firm, with Brainshark also named a leader in the Tech SpectrumTM for Sales Communications published last year.

“To maximize sales results, it’s critical that reps make the most of every chance they have to engage with their prospects – an approach that starts during onboarding and should remain a constant priority,” said Brainshark CEO Greg Flynn. “Our sales enablement technology empowers organizations to better onboard, train and coach their reps, and gain real-time insight into the behavior and content that help close deals. We’re honored to be named a market leader by Aragon.”
