Rosetta Stone Wins 12% More Often With InsideView
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Jan 22, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
InsideView, the only sales intelligence solution that helps sales
executives get in the door and win once they're in, today announced
that Rosetta Stone, a leading provider of technology-based
language-learning solutions, has significantly increased sales
productivity and results with InsideView. Since deploying InsideView,
Rosetta Stone's Corporate Sales team has increased its
lead-to-opportunity conversion rates by 22%, win rates by 12% and
average deal size by 33%. InsideView provides the critical business
insights, social connections and deep contact information to
effectively engage and convert the most promising prospects.
"InsideView gives us the power to identify and work with key contacts
within an account and close the sale," said Charles Frydenborg,
Senior Director of Corporate Sales, North America for Rosetta Stone.
"And perhaps most importantly, InsideView provides the big-picture
insights that allow us to educate our target customers about the need
for language learning within their own companies. With this
information, they often become champions of our products which allows
us to rapidly grow the size of our accounts."
Rosetta Stone has aggressively scaled its direct sales organization
to capitalize on the global demand for language-learning solutions.
Rosetta Stone selected InsideView to replace an ineffective set of
sales tools and contact sources and to gain access to the industry's
largest database of global contacts. With InsideView, sales
executives are now able to locate the right person or department and
target qualified prospects at the time they are most likely to be
interested in making a purchase.
InsideView has become an integral part of the Rosetta Stone sales
process. "Because we don't sell to a single title or department,
finding the right prospect can be time-consuming and ineffective.
InsideView surfaces pertinent information about prospects, and makes
it easier for our sales team to effectively target accounts and
decision makers," added Frydenborg. "I can't imagine going back to
our old way of doing things." With InsideView, sales teams can end
cold calling and instead take advantage of "warm introductions" from
colleagues and social connections to quickly develop trusted
relationships that lead to sales.
"Rosetta Stone is using InsideView to streamline the process of
prospecting and selling -- and the results speak for themselves,"
said Umberto Milletti, CEO of InsideView. "We are pleased to welcome
Rosetta Stone to our family of successful customers."
