Burlington, MA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
Qstream, which provides mobile sales enablement and analytics for driving high-performance teams, announced that its CEO, Duncan Lennox, has joined the Forrester Sales Enablement Standards Council, a group of senior executives from leading sales enablement companies working with Forrester analysts to shape standard definitions for B2B revenue-enhancement solutions.
Launched in March 2013, The Forrester Sales Enablement Standards Council is a peer group of business leaders among Forrester’s client base that collaborate in establishing a common framework for the fast-growth sales enablement market. The community of vendors – working with Forrester analysts – aims to define and promote a common language and set of standards within Forrester’s market maturity model, and promote these to their respective clients.
As major tectonic forces transform how B2B companies sell and market their products and services – such as the emergence of a “do more with less” economy and the increased empowerment of buyers – the B2B selling system is not adapting quickly enough to accommodate changing business conditions. Forrester Sales Enablement Standards Council members seek to rewire the selling profession to align more effectively with today’s corporate objectives, and deliver the insight that customers need for purchase decisions that translate into increased revenue performance.
“Most companies still enable their sales forces with silo’d solutions that focus on how reps promote the company’s products and services, instead of how they solve customer problems,” said Duncan Lennox, CEO of Qstream. “For sales teams to overcome the challenges of the new economy, that approach must change. We’re delighted to join this team of industry leaders, working together to help organizations transform sales processes into a more effective, cohesive discipline that drives revenue and growth more cost efficiently.”
