The sales engagement category has exploded over the past three years, and it’s exciting that Groove is leading the market for companies using Salesforce or Salesforce Industry Clouds as their CRM platform.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 30, 2020
Groove, the leading sales engagement platform for enterprises using Salesforce, today announced that it has been ranked 16 by the San Francisco Business Times on its annual Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area 2020 awards. This is the second year in a row that Groove has received this prestigious award.
Groove’s record revenues have been driven by exponential growth in the sales engagement platform category over the past three years. More than $250 million has been invested in the category over the past 18 months alone, and TOPO Research projects that sales engagement will become a multi-billion dollar market as enterprises expand the use of these platforms beyond the prospecting use case to fully support account executives and full-cycle sellers.
As the only enterprise sales engagement platform built to meet the relationship-based needs of full-cycle sellers, Groove continues to see strong demand for its sales engagement platform from a wide range of industries, including financial services, education, and other verticals currently undergoing accelerated digital transformation due to COVID-19.
“We are honored to be ranked as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the Bay Area for two years running,” said Chris Rothstein, CEO at Groove. “The sales engagement category has exploded over the past three years, and it’s exciting that Groove is leading the market for companies using Salesforce or Salesforce Industry Clouds as their CRM platform.”
