Tact.ai was appointed the winner of the 2017 Digital Innovation Awards for "helping organizations innovate or enhance the productivity and outcomes" of their digital transformation initiatives. Ventana Research picked a group of finalists that "showcase advances in the productivity and potential of business applications as well as technology that contributes significantly to improved efficiency, productivity and the performance of an organization" and awarded Tact.ai with the highest scores out of all companies in this year's competition.

As one of the six sales acceleration companies selected as a launch partner, Tact.ai became the first omnichannel AI powered assistant to integrate with the new LinkedIn Sales Navigator Application Platform. Sellers now get fuller and more consistent representation of LinkedIn people and company profiles, expanded search capabilities and strong reporting to align sales analytics and initiatives across teams using different systems. LinkedIn's Head of Sales Products, Doug Camplejohn, lays out additional benefits and details here.

Sales leaders from GE, Cisco, and IBM outlined their best approaches to steering successful sales transformation in a new report, revealing how these global organizations aligned goals from numerous departments -- such as reduced sales cycles, greater data fidelity and tighter organizational collaboration through deal closure -- to offer its salespeople a new kind of selling experience.
