Consensus' Demo Automation Technology Recognized as Top B2B Sales Tool for 2018

SANDY, Utah, May 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Consensus, an enterprise SaaS (software-as-a-service) startup that drives B2B sales through Demo Automation, has been recognized as one of the Top Sales Tools of 2018 by Smart Selling Tools.

Companies such as Oracle, SAP, Micro Focus, VMware, Autodesk, Experian, and Equifax are using Consensus to automate product demonstrations to drive more effective sales conversations and shorten sales cycles as much as 68%.

"With some of the world's best companies using Consensus we know our technology delivers huge value," said Founder and CEO Garin Hess. "Still, we're honored to be recognized by the industry as a top sales tool."

Consensus' patented demo automation technology helps sales teams discover and engage each stakeholder through an interactive video demo that automatically personalizes the experience to each stakeholder based on their unique interests. As they engage, Consensus delivers key buying group data back to the sales team so they can more effectively drive agreement.

"It's like having the answers to the test before you take it," said Ryan Massey, Sales Manager at Carowinds.

"B2B sales has never been harder," said founder Garin Hess. "With six to seven stakeholders in every buying group, sales has to customize the demo to each stakeholder. That ends up making for lots of meetings and artificially long sales cycles."

"The Consensus platform has been excellent for us," said Sheryl Wharff, Americas Channel Marketing Leader for Micro Focus. "Once an individual receives an interactive video…if they like it and have other colleagues that should be enabled…they pass that video on to them."

Hess explained that this process of providing the internal champion what they need to help drive engagement and alignment in the buying group is called Buyer Enablement.

"Who is really doing the selling? It's the internal champion, not the sales person. Our objective is to help you equip the champion with what they need to sell internally to be effective," said Hess. "Traditional sales enablement focuses on what the sellers are doing. But if you enable the buyers, they'll get the deal done much faster than focusing on what the sales people are doing."

Consensus technology includes the BuyerBoard™, a dashboard designed for the internal champion to track interest and engagement by other stakeholders within their own organization. Enabling internal champions is core to Consensus' strategy. By enabling the champion to sell internally more effectively, customers have increased close rates by more than 44%.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
