In a competitive industry like technology every qualified lead counts. This guide will help you maximise conversion from lead to pipeline, increasing both your revenue and ROI on marketing.
Our SVP of Sales Aurelien Mottier has created a step-by-step guide for effective inbound response management to help sales leaders improve how their teams respond, nurture and convert inbound leads. Operatix has helped many of Silicon Valley's leading technology companies improve their inbound sales management efforts and maximise their pipeline generation. Here's how we helped Elastic a rapidly growing Silicon Valley technology start-up.
A fast expanding open source technology company headquartered in Los Altos, California. Elastic is rapidly becoming the world’s most popular open source search solution that is embedded in mission critical applications. Elastic raised $70 Million in Series C financing to accelerate the mission of making it simple for businesses worldwide to obtain meaningful insights from data.
Elastic is growing quickly and had the choice to recruit an SDR (Sales Development Rep) team internally or outsource to experts. Elastic also needed to serve their customers across multiple locations in both North America and Europe.
Elastic wanted a partner that could demonstrate a return on investment quickly, provide flexible resources who could understand technical products and could become an extension of Elastic's inside sales team.
