Escalating Demand for Sales Enablement and Highspot’s Category Leadership Drove 3,172 Percent Revenue Growth
SEATTLE, 7 November, 2019 – Highspot, the sales-enablement platform that reps love, today announced that it ranked No. 41 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 25th year. Highspot’s revenue has grown by 3,172 per cent over the last three years.
Highspot leads the sales-enablement category with its technology innovation and unparalleled customer satisfaction. Companies across industries and geographical regions are adopting sales enablement with increasing urgency as go-to-market leaders recognise its impact on revenue, customer satisfaction and retention. The State of Sales Enablement 2019 report found that more than 79 per cent of survey respondents have a sales-enablement process or practice in place or plan on implementing one this year. This represents a 20 per cent year-on-year growth from last year’s survey.
“No matter how much technology changes our lives, people want to connect with people,” said Robert Wahbe, CEO, Highspot. “Our growth is fuelled by the way our product enables go-to-market teams to authentically engage with customers. Deliver real value, and your company will grow its value in return.”
