Social Selling Goes Global
InsideView and iGo2 Bring Social Intelligence to Asia Pacific
San Francisco – December 20, 2010 – InsideView, the leader in sales intelligence, today announced that Australia-based iGo2 Group joins InsideView’s Partner Program as reseller and master agent to companies based in Asia-Pacific countries. Together, InsideView and iGo2 help companies leverage social media solutions to increase sales productivity. The partnership emphasizes a joint dedication to helping companies gain competitive advantages using social selling. iGo2 offers customers tailored social technology solutions that range from methodology consulting to full social media implementations. InsideView is the market leader in delivering social intelligence for boosting sales productivity.
“We’re looking forward to working with iGo2 as we expand into the Asia-Pacific region,” said Heidi Tucker, VP of Global Alliances at InsideView. “Asia-Pacific countries have enthusiastically embraced the social media revolution, and there’s a huge opportunity for InsideView to broaden the message of social selling in this market.”
While many companies in the region have adopted social media solutions for their marketing organizations, very few sales teams are capitalizing on social selling applications and sales techniques. As a trailblazer in the social selling domain, InsideView’s move into Asia-Pacific with iGo2 will propel the evolution from traditional sales models to those encompassing Sales 2.0 and Social CRM practices.
“Asia Pacific is one of the most active regions in social media and we see our customers and partners making strategic investments in Social CRM to help bring them to the next level,” said Michael Green, CEO of iGo2. “We will actively recruit CRM VARs and Sales Effectiveness channel partners to more widely share the value InsideView delivers to companies seeking higher productivity and sales effectiveness”.
