Organizations use Smart Rooms to teach their prospects about their solutions and company in a personalized, secure, and digital manner. Additionally, they can objectively analyze their own sales effectiveness.
"Journey Sales is executing on a vision that is transforming how companies sell digitally," added George Krautzel, Managing Partner of MissionOG. "The message we heard from customers was Smart Rooms increase customer engagement and provide valuable data to support sales decision-making."
"Over the years, I have witnessed the introduction of many solutions and technologies intended to improve the sales process," reflected Ray Lane.
