We have entered the age of the customer where they have more choices, higher expectations, and more influence. Historically, the B2B selling process has been very fragmented with the use of highly customized and siloed applications, leading to broken channels of communication.

Lead management combines two heavy hitters in sales and marketing: lead scoring and lead nurturing. Lead scoring is an objective ranking of one sales lead against another. It helps marketing and sales pros identify where each prospect is in the buying process and follow up accordingly. On the flip side, lead nurturing is the process of cultivating leads that aren’t ready to buy by equipping them with info. Successful lead nurturing anticipates the needs of the buyer based on who they are and where they are in the decision process.

Modern business-to-business (B2B) buyers have unprecedented access to information to support their buying process and, as a result, have become more self-reliant in the evaluation process. This has made B2B sellers’ jobs harder; not only do they have less control in earlier stages of the sales cycle, but they have to work harder to connect and engage with buyers, turning prospects into customers. Sales technologies have helped modernize how sellers and sales leaders manage their pipelines and execute contracts, but technology gaps around engagement persist, making it difficult for sellers to keep pace with, connect with, and support buyer engagement. The common outcome: Sellers become slaves to their CRM systems, focused more on updating reports and logging their activities than they are in driving business results.

Buying an ERP system that doesn't closely fit your business processes can be a costly mistake. This is particularly true if you try to fit a generic manufacturing ERP solution into a packaging/printing business environment. Reworking a non-industry specific system to meet the day-to-day operational needs of a printing/packaging operation requires significant modifications to the core product. The resulting software can end up so heavily customized that it can be difficult and very costly to maintain.

Remember back in the day when digital advertising was simple to understand? Like popping open the hood of a 1972 Ford, all the parts were simple and visible, and how they fit together was intuitive. It made sense. Now? Piecing together the modern digital advertising ecosystem is like trying to assemble a spaceship in your living room. But as Rocket Fuel Director of Artificial Intelligence Michael Benisch explains in our latest whitepaper, using advanced systems to buy media programmatically doesn't have to be overwhelming. Michael will take you "under the hood" of programmatic buying and walk you through the process of how and why a consumer sees the ads they see. Download the whitepaper and pop open the hood before choosing a programmatic partner.

Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later. Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise. Leaders in business and IT alike are waking up to the reality that – despite the hype around platforms and processing speeds – their companies have failed to established sustained processes and skills around data.
