FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EdCast’s SalesU 2.0 Drives Deeper
Integration with Salesforce

SalesU 2.0 Suite will be Featured at TrailheaDX (June 28-29) with AI-driven Solutions in 30+ Languages and Productivity Enhancements

SalesUMOUNTAIN VIEW, CA /BusinessWire/ — EdCast announces the launch of SalesU2.0, the most robust end-to-end sales enablement suite available for mid-to-large enterprises. SalesU 2.0 will be featured at Salesforce’s (NYSE: CRM) TrailheaDX conference starting today, of which SalesU is a proud Summit Partner.

The SalesU Suite addresses sales team productivity across three dimensions, which correspond to the three core solutions in the SalesU suite (now available on Salesforce AppExchange). SalesU 2.0 includes the following updates to its solutions:

Reduce Sales Cycle Length

EdCast’s GuideMe™ is the in-app guidance and training app used to create personalized walkthroughs of customized instances of sales tools (e.g., Salesforce, Apttus, Steelbrick), including AI-driven audio tours in 30+ languages. Reduce hours of unproductive questions about how instances work and allow your customers to get familiar with your service most rapidly to progress the discussion.

Increase Sales Win Rates

SalesU Coach™ is an AI-powered role-play and mentoring app for perfecting sales pitches and demos. It can now be rated by state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) models and posted directly to Salesforce opportunities via SalesU Insights, giving your team a competitive edge.

Optimize Bookings Per Sales Representative

SalesU Insights™ provides real-time contextual knowledge and information from both internal and external premium content, so that sales reps can better prepared for customer interactions to maximize their outcomes and create stickier relationships to drive greater total booking value.

“We know time-efficient use of sales tools, mentoring, and targeted usage of information drive sales success,” says EdCast CEO and founder, Karl Mehta. “These are key aspects behind our launch of the SalesU 2.0 Suite and our early adoption with key customers. We are excited to present the SalesU solutions — GuideMe, Coach and Insights — at Salesforce TrailheaDX 2017.”

With current customers that include GE, HPE, Accenture, Shire, Dell EMC and other Global 2000 companies, the SalesU Suite is available to these and other customers in addition to their current EdCast Knowledge Cloud solutions. New customers can sample EdCast’s SalesU solutions via the SalesU.io website on a no-cost trial basis.

Knowledge management leader Mehta reiterates EdCast’s commitment to enterprise sales teams with his recent blog post, stating, “Making salespeople highly productive is absolutely mission critical for EdCast.

The importance of this commitment to organizational sales enablement is reinforced by industry experts.

”70% of organizational sales performance improvement initiatives fail to deliver the intended result,” says sales enablement and training expert, Mike Kunkle, founder of Transforming Sales Results, LLC. “These initiatives can work–they just require a purposeful plan, like my sales learning system and five stages for sales behavior change. EdCast’s SalesU provides support for several of these stages and can help organizations realize the behavior changes needed to improve sales productivity.”

SalesU will be presenting its suite of solutions at TrailheaDX on Day 1 of the conference at a developer session entitled “Drive Sales Productivity & Extend Your Solutions With AI-Powered Sales Tools” at 1 pm on June 28. For more information or to watch this session, contact EdCast at SalesU@EdCast.com.

The SalesU Productivity Suite Features Three Key Sales Acceleration Solutions Complementing EdCast’s Industry-leading Knowledge Cloud

 

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–EdCast, the award-winning knowledge management and learning platform, announces the launch of SalesU™, the most robust end-to-end sales ramp suite available to mid-to-large enterprises. EdCast’s SalesU allows enterprises to seamlessly train and coach their sales teams using its AI-powered SaaS platform.

The SalesU Suite includes three core SaaS solutions that help sales ramping in terms of both training newer sales reps and helping experienced reps learn new products, skills or target prospects’ details:

  1. AI-powered role-play and mentoring app for perfecting sales pitches and demos called EdCast Coach™
  2. Real-time contextual knowledge and information from both internal sources and external premium content providers (e.g., Bloomberg, Dow Jones, Hoovers, Crunchbase, Pitchbook, Mattermark) from a Salesforce AppExchange app called EdCast Insights™
  3. EdCast’s GuideMe™, an in-app guidance and training app for software, websites and online services that sales ops managers and administrators use to create personalized walkthroughs of companies’ customized instances of sales tools (e.g., Salesforce, Apptus, Steelbrick, Five9)

“We are thrilled that EdCast’s SalesU solutions have already been embraced by many of our large enterprise customers,” says EdCast CEO and founder, Karl Mehta. “Sales enablement is one of the most important aspects to our partners’ success, and we have designed our SalesU Suite to address these specific needs as both a complement to the EdCast Learning Experience platform and as a stand-alone offering to new customers.”

Mehta reiterates EdCast’s commitment to enterprise sales teams with his recent blog post, stating, “Making salespeople highly productive is absolutely mission critical.”

This notion is reinforced by industry experts.

“It is clear that companies across industries have a common need to quickly ramp their sales teams to accelerate sales cycles and to grow pipelines,” says Amy Slater, Founder and CEO of Amy Slater Consulting and former Vice President, Enterprise Corporate Sales for Salesforce.com. “EdCast has a great track record of success with its enterprise knowledge platform, and its SalesU Suite represents a new and innovative approach to address the challenges we consistently see in sales enablement.”

Leading the Sales Productivity Revolution with SalesU.io

Sales Productivity

Leading the Sales Productivity Revolution with SalesU.io

Why is EdCast launching a sales ramping platform today?

One of the most precious assets a company possesses is its salespeople’s time. Analyze your salespeople’s workday. If they are not spending at least 70% of their time interacting with prospects, then there is a significant probability that your organization will under-perform on its revenue forecast. As we know, your sales team drives the new revenue that helps pays the bills and company payroll. I often say to my company’s employees and companies I meet, “Imagine how all those innovative growth plans and wonderful employee perks will fare if revenue targets are not achieved.”

Since EdCast was founded, we have believed that  the learning curve is the earning curve. Some of the smartest thought leaders in learning, including Bersin by Deloitte’s Josh Bersin and Accenture’s Chief Learning & Talent Officer Rahul Varma have been quite articulate in explaining this learning equals performance/earning equation in depth at our Future Learning 2020 Summit last year.  

Over the past three years, we have been fortunate to work with some incredibly talented CLOs and Learning & Development (L&D) leaders as we rolled out and implemented our Knowledge Cloud platform at visionary and fast-growing companies. We have worked with various job families, roles, functions and departments with the quest to empower them with better performance via continuous learning. In this quest, we have discovered that although the correlation between learning and earning applies to all functions and to an organization as a whole, there is one function that stands out with the most urgent needs and largest push for mission-critical ROI: the sales team.

Needless to say, making salespeople highly productive is mission critical. Failure to do this can and will lead to catastrophe, regardless of the size of a company and the moat it has in the marketplace.

With this in mind, we have been inspired to solve this hard and important problem of making sales teams productive and making this “learning equals earning” equation work better. We think of the sales team ramping problem across three dimensions, and we are thrilled to make them the three core pillars of our new SalesU.io platform:

  1.     Contextual insights that reduce unproductive time by 30%: Sales teams are drowning in content but starving for precise knowledge and insights that can help them specifically close a deal faster. There is a deluge of collateral, playbooks and content both on the web and inside internal repositories, but why have salespeople waste time searching unproductively or using ineffective and outdated content? Based on our three years of work in perfecting our Knowledge Discovery Engine, we are excited about making content discoverable and pushed based on the context with each opportunity that a salesperson is chasing — and surfacing it right inside the CRM (Salesforce.com in our first release) with daily recent and curated insights.Sales teams can discover content they need much faster. In our experience, this capability helps cut down at least 30% of salespeople’s time and makes each interaction with prospects more meaningful, accelerating the sales cycle as a result.
  1.     Great coaches can make the difference between success and failure: Last year, I took my family to the Himalayas and Nepal to learn what it takes to summit the gorgeous Mount Everest. I learned that no books or reading was comparable in preparing us compared to getting actual real-time insights from a Sherpa. This is not a surprise because we know that behind every winning team, there is a great coach. We know successful leaders have great mentors. Marc Benioff, a great visionary and  compassionate leader in the tech-industry, discussed at TechCrunch Disrupt in 2013 how he would look up to Steve Jobs as his mentor and would go to him for advice.  In designing the EdCast Knowledge Cloud, one of the first features we had created was SME (Subject Matter Expert)-based learning. With SalesU.io we have built a mobile-first experience for salespeople to perfect their pitch through feedback from coaches and mentors. We are also leveraging some cool machine intelligence technology to act as coaches and provide feedback. We think great performers in sales are not born with all the  talent they need to succeed; we believe they work hard and are well-coached
  1.     Becoming a Ninja in Sales Tools:  We see salespeople struggle using at least several tools they are required to use at their company, including highly customized CRMs, Quote-to-Cash tools, etc. Just finding information from the tools and reports is becoming increasingly hard to do as these tools gets customized and configured. Last month, we had launched GuideMe.io as an in-app interactive guidance to train any person on any software or online solution in minutes. Every time a configuration changes, it is easy for administrators to create a walkthrough (guided tour) about it in few minutes, and save the frustration and unproductive time of salespeople. GuideMe.io is part of the SalesU package to provide on-demand and real-time in-app training to ramp new and existing sales teams faster.

SalesU EdCastAlthough we spent a huge amount of time with the best talent in Silicon Valley building this solution for sales teams, we have a beginner’s mindset, and we look forward to learning from sales leaders and sales enablement experts and their feedback, so we can iterate rapidly. With the launch of SalesU.io today , our goal is to both enhance and accelerate improvements in  productivity that will have meaningful impacts on companies’ profits.

Killer Apps for AR/VR: Interview with Karl Mehta

AR VR Apps

Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) get a lot of attention when it comes to pure entertainment — but this reflects just a fraction of the power of AR/VR video. According to Karl Mehta, CEO of video education platform EdCast, more useful applications for enterprise and consumer markets alike are truly revolutionizing the AR/VR video space.

Telco Transformation recently sat down with Mehta for a Q&A about demand for and trends in AR/VR video. The Q&A has been lightly edited for length and clarity.

Telco Transformation: Where are you seeing the greatest demand right now in terms of your customers and how they want to use more advanced video solutions like AR/VR?

Karl Mehta: The demand is really mainly in the private sector. There is consumer demand, but I think it’s still more in the early stage; consumers are [saying], “It’s nice, fancy new stuff,” but there are not that many applications that are targeted yet for consumers in a lot of this VR, AR or 3D video space. But in the enterprise space… field operations are getting revolutionized. (See AREA’s Sage Advises Augmented Reality and Defining Productive Video.)

Think of a company like a cable company, and they have 10,000 people in the field installing routers getting you Internet to your home or to your big commercial building. If you’re running that operation, how do you train those 10,000 people on a continuous basis? Because [as] a new router comes in, new complaints come in. So you could, rather than bringing people [and] flying them in to one location, you could now have a video-based app or a virtual reality-based app where right on their phone they can see what is the way to install, implement and configure a router.

You can immediately see ROI because you can see the cost savings [comparing] a traditional way of trying to learn something [versus] now using video and VR.

TT: You mentioned the difficulty in the AR/VR consumer market. Do you see a possible solution — or at least a process to finding that solution — to figure out how this is going to work for consumers and how they are going to want it, etc.?

KM: The fundamental thing that every great technology needs is a killer app. I think AR/VR still needs to find its killer app in the consumer. I mentioned the killer app in the enterprise sector is anything to do with field operations, because field operations is “people who are not in the building.” It’s not in your office. They are outside in the field. Think about oil and gas. There are people who are out on the rigs in the ocean — and how do you train them? How do you replicate situations which will be so expensive to replicate inside in an office or in a lab? So I think field operations is a killer app.

On the consumer side, gaming is where you’re seeing pretty much all the investments and funding going from the VR companies. Pretty much all VR and AR companies right now are focused on games or entertainment. There is education going on, but very little, because there isn’t enough funding available for that.

TT: Do you see a role for this advanced video definition, 3D video, AR/VR, and that sort of thing in helping along what we’re talking about?

KM: Absolutely. I think the killer app for AR/VR and 3D videos is a model in education. I mean, yes, there are other applications like health and military and all of those, but fundamentally, even within each one of those verticals, the fundamental is education. How do you train military personnel? How do you train healthcare professionals? And we’re already seeing tremendous use of virtual reality now in a lot of situations where you just cannot replicate that in a lab; you’re teaching someone chemistry and you may not have all of the equipment, but you can actually create it in virtual reality.

I just built a virtual reality app for an automobile company who trained the mechanics across all of their dealerships about how to change the brake pads [in] a new-model car. In the old format, you would have to write so many instruction manuals — and still, some mechanics would install the brake pads the wrong way. But now, you can just go into 3D virtual reality — and you know exactly where to go in and pull out which screws, and how to pull out the old brake pads, and how to put in the new one. (See How VR Helped Land Rover Raise the Roof.)

I mean, I did it in like ten minutes, and I felt like I’m a pro. I’m nowhere close to being a good automobile mechanic to do anything hands on, but that’s the power of virtual reality.
