Leads360 Wins 2013 Stevie® Award for Sales Technology Partner of the Year

Leads360, a market-leader in cloud-based intelligent sales automation solutions, today announced that it has been named a Stevie® Award winner in the Sales and Customer ServiceTM Solutions Technology Partner of the Year category. This is the seventh annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top sales awards, contact center awards, and customer service awards. The Stevie Awards organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious American Business AwardsSM and International Business AwardsSM.

“Today, businesses are deploying inside sales resources at a much greater rate than traditional field sales forces, and are looking for solutions that can help them get the most out of their inside team and ultimately drive sales performance,” said Nick Hedges, CEO and President of Leads360. “We are excited to be at the forefront of this trend and honored for the recognition from the Stevie Awards.”

The inside sales role is an area of trending growth, according to a 2012 Bridge Group study, which found the number of inside sales jobs has grown 124% in the past 2 years. Leads360 satisfies the growing need for intelligent sales automation in these high-velocity sales environments that require:

  • Immediate response to improve conversion rate and customer experience
  • Highly automated and disciplined sales follow-up practices to drive performance
  • Sophisticated prioritization and workflow to drastically improve sales rep productivity

Leads360 enables sales organizations to effectively and efficiently engage with prospective buyers with systematic phone, email, and SMS follow up that is guided by proven-to-convert selling strategies. Leads360's LeadManagerTM solution and intelligent cloud-dialer, Dial-IQTM, focus on three core principles critical to improving lead conversion - improved speed-to-contact, greater selling discipline, and increased sales rep productivity.

“From our perspective this was the most successful Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Not just because of the increase in the number and variety of entries, but in the extraordinary quality of the entries. Judges have told me how impressed they were with the success stories they reviewed this year. All of this year’s Stevie Award winners are truly deserving.”
