Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
PeopleLinx announced today that 2014 was its most successful year yet. The company generated record sales, growing revenue to 220% year-over-year.
PeopleLinx’s sales growth came on the strength of major new customer relationships with Kimberly-Clark, two of the Big Four accounting firms, and dozens of other industry leaders.
“In 2014, PeopleLinx changed the social selling conversation. While others were focused on the individual sales rep, we focused on integrating social selling into the enterprise sales organization, process, and metrics,” said PeopleLinx CEO Kevin O’Nell.
O’Nell pointed to multiple 2014 highlights that drove PeopleLinx’s growth:
- The launch of PeopleLinx 3, with a beautiful user interface, mobile-first design, and enterprise-grade analytics.
- New strategic partnerships with Lexis Nexis and Actiance.
- Product integration with Salesforce.com
- Sponsorship of leading sales enablement events, including Dreamforce ’14, Richardson Client Forum, Corporate Executive Board Sales & Marketing Summit, and LIMRA Social Media.
- Publication of the first Social Selling Maturity Model for the enterprise.
PeopleLinx also announced it has received a prestigious Richy Award for Best Social Selling Tool from sales performance leader Richardson.
“At Richardson, we test drive a lot of sales support and enablement tools; and, as a leader in sales training and performance improvement, we know a winner when we see one,” wrote Jim Brodo, SVP of Marketing, on Richardson’s corporate blog. Richardson’s citation praised PeopleLinx’s ability to remove the complexity from social selling and make it easy for sales professionals.
The Richy adds to PeopleLinx’s growing collection of industry awards. PeopleLinx was named a Cool Vendor by Gartner Group in 2014. PeopleLinx customers have won such awards as the Silver Bowl for social media innovation from LIMRA and Top 5 Most Innovative Law Firms from the Financial Times.
