Sales Enablement Leaders of the Year

This year’s winners built out the sales enablement function at their companies, made incredible strides in their use of readiness and enablement technologies, and helped put their sales teams on track for greater productivity.

 

Andrew Solomon, Director of Sales Training, Associated Materials

"It's an honor to be recognized as the 2020 Sales Enablement Leader of the Year by Brainshark. Their readiness platform has played an integral part in the onboarding and continuing education of our sales team.”

     
 

Chuck Lee, SVP - Sales Enablement, FLEETCOR

"Brainshark technology has been THE key enabler in 2020 for our North America Fuels sales teams.  The platform has been a game-changer in helping us reduce non-productive sales time as we replaced in-person live training activities with a digital learning approach.” 

     
 

Kathleen Hill, Global Sales Training Manager, Natus Medical

"By utilizing Brainshark, the Natus Medical global sales teams are prepared with effective training, keeping them up-to-date with clinical and product knowledge, along with key sales messaging which helps them succeed in today’s challenging sales environment."

 

Sales Enablement Programs of the Year

This year our honorees have displayed leading-edge sales enablement strategies, transformative results and positive impact on rep performance.

 

Everfi runs a comprehensive sales enablement program that was developed cross-functionally and uses Brainshark for onboarding and continuous training. Everfi reps find the flexibility of Brainshark training particularly helpful as they work from home, while Everfi’s sales managers work strategically address rep skill, training and onboarding gaps sooner.

Natus Medical’s growing sales enablement program has been able to help cut rep onboarding time in half, with new hires reaching full productivity and hitting sales targets after 6 months. The group has also reduced the time and cost of sales training by utilizing remote learning via “The Cube” (i.e. Brainshark.).
