Brainshark Sales Accelerator Wins People’s Choice Stevie® Award in 2015 American Business Awards

Brainshark’s Acclaimed Sales Enablement Platform Also Nabs Two ‘New Product of the Year’ Honors in Recent Stevie Awards Programs

WALTHAM, Mass. — September 15, 2015 — Brainshark, Inc., delivering SaaS-based sales enablement solutions, today announced that the Brainshark Sales Accelerator won a People’s Choice Stevie® Award for Favorite New Products in the 13th Annual American Business Awards (ABAs). Launched just last fall, Brainshark’s popular sales enablement platform scooped up two other honors in recent Stevie Awards programs as well.

The People’s Choice Stevie Awards are a feature of the ABAs – the nation’s premier business awards program – in which the general public can vote for their favorite new products and services. More than 16,000 votes were cast in 40 categories this year. 

“The Brainshark Sales Accelerator is a one-stop shop for improving sales readiness, productivity and, most importantly, results,” said Robin Saitz, chief marketing officer at Brainshark. “We’re especially honored and gratified to receive awards like this one – driven by the voice of customers who are seeing dramatic results in sales performance.”

Helping sales teams close more deals faster, the Brainshark Sales Accelerator provides resources for sales onboarding, continuous training, prospecting, live presentation delivery, coaching and content development – all centrally accessible within Salesforce. Powerful analytics give actionable insights into how deals are won.

In addition to the People’s Choice Award, the Brainshark Sales Accelerator also won judging-based honors as a best “New Product or Service of the Year” in both the ABAs and the 12th Annual International Business Awards (IBAs). The platform was a winner in the “Solution for Integrating Content into the Workflow” category at last week’s ABAs ceremony, and will be honored as a best new “Corporate Learning/Workforce Development Solution” at the IBAs in Toronto, Canada next month.

Comments from the Stevie Awards (ABAs and IBAs) judges on the Brainshark Sales Accelerator include:

  • “Innovative way to drive sales predictability.”
  • “Excellent performance achieved.”
  • “This solution will certainly increase sales force performance by providing just-in-time needed information and save hundreds of hours wasted on information search.”
  • “Highly effective product for workforce development.”
  • “Excellent approach; takes Salesforce to another level.”
  • “This system is a fantastic tool; it is integral to putting the sales content in context for the sales person.”
  • “I'm going to explore this product for my own organization.”

With these recent honors, the Brainshark Sales Accelerator has won four Stevie Awards this year. Driven by the platform’s success, Brainshark was named the top “Sales Solutions Technology Partner of the Year” in the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service this past February.

Brainshark will be demonstrating the Sales Accelerator at Dreamforce today through Friday at Dreamforce Cloud Expo booth N1030. For more information about the Brainshark Sales Accelerator, please see www.brainshark.com/solutions/sales-accelerator.
