Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and sales to date:

Creator of the leading conversation intelligence platform for high-growth sales team, recently debuted new versions of its Smart Themes and Smart Playlists technologies to improve sales teams’ performances.

Sales deals are a black box. Meetings with prospects and clients drive deals - and meeting quality is the primary driver of billions of dollars in revenue. When we look at the unique set of problems related to sales, 57% of sales reps miss their quota and 80% of deals won’t close. And, when you factor in all of the expense to get prospects to a meeting, it’s about $100 per minute - and business leaders have no idea how those minutes are being used. Sales leaders need to shine a light on what is driving success and failure so that they coach more of their team to win.

Not only will this coaching help improve results, it will also improve employee retention - 60% of reps say that they will leave their current job is their manager is a poor coach. Without data-driven insights, salespeople have no real guidance to improve their interactions, which is often the key to making quota. addresses this by recording and summarizing every conversation and mapping it to the CRM, providing notes and information that anyone in the organization can use, and allowing leaders to run reporting against anything discussed in a conversation. Leaders can understand what happens on the call within seconds, reviewing a summary of the call complete with topics discussed, questions asked, various closing signals, and risk indicators. Sales reps, maangers, and leadership understands what happens on the call, can “review the game tape,” and share these “lightning in a bottle” snippets via email or Slack to drive improvement across the entire team.

Now, with its new versions of Smart Themes and Smart Playlists, has further transformed the sales space, significantly improving the efficiency and effectiveness of team management.

The new Smart Themes technology uses’s sophisticated AI engine to proactively identify patterns within conversations and organize them for easy access to insights. Identifying the use and placement of specific themes serves to bolster best practices, allowing the entire sales team to benefit from the work of the top performing sellers. Smart Themes begins to produce effective analyses after just a few hundred hours of conversations.

Smart Themes learns on its own and tells users exactly what they need to know. also released a new version of Smart Playlists, the next step in the process of improving how leaders manage their sales teams. Managers can automatically curate a collection of their most important call moments to train reps.
