Addapt

Designed for customer-facing marketing, sales and support people working in technology-based B2B companies, Addapt inspires and accelerates encounter preparation.

Sensitive to the context of the client meeting, it coaches users on objectives and the customer perspective as well as reminding them, at the point of need, about valuable and relevant collateral: Presentations, Checklists, HowTos, FAQs, etc!

What’s more, it gives support through to reporting outcomes, closing the loop on the encounter process and providing much needed KPI data. Output feeds any CRM – SalesForce or SAP, for example – and goes just as easily into mail, spreadsheets and other office tools.

Addapt strengthens sales and support processes while enhancing their visibility!
