Brainshark’s Sales Readiness Platform Earns Highest Honors as the Best ‘Sales Enablement Solution – New Version’

WALTHAM, Mass. March 9, 2020 Brainshark, Inc., the industry’s only data-driven sales readiness platform, today announced it is a winner in the 2020 Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. Brainshark was recognized as the best in the “Sales Enablement Solution – New Version” category – honored with a gold (highest-level) Stevie® Award for helping companies improve sales readiness and results.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for sales, customer service, contact center and business development professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes eight of the world’s leading business awards programs, also including the prestigious American Business Awards®  and International Business Awards®. Brainshark was honored in both of those programs last year and has won more than 25 different Stevie Awards.

This marks the fifth year Brainshark has been a winner in the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. In this year’s competition, judges evaluated more than 2,600 nominations from organizations in 48 nations and in virtually every industry.

“Being recognized again by the Stevie Awards underscores Brainshark’s commitment to providing easy-to-use and powerful tools that prepare sales reps and client-facing teams for success,” said Brendan Cournoyer, vice president of marketing, Brainshark. “The amount of information reps need to know, the degree to which they need to know it, and the skills they need to master are constantly increasing and changing. At Brainshark, we’re dedicated to helping companies create always-ready sales teams and ensure their reps are prepared to maximize every buyer interaction.”

Brainshark’s comprehensive platform for sales enablement and readiness provides solutions for content authoring, onboarding and training, coaching and practice, readiness scorecards and more. Judges recognized Brainshark’s overall platform, along with additions and enhancements from the past two years.
