ToutApp adds team news feed to help salespeople get along, from Venture Beat.
Like athletes, salespeople are constantly getting tips on how to run the race faster.
But, although they’re also highly competitive, salespeople can benefit by seeing what works for others on their team.
For sales productivity app Tout, the race is centered on email, presentations, and the occasional phone call. Today, the San Francisco-based company is releasing a new feature so individual sales people can get real-time tips about what works for their compatriots in sales or marketing.
Called Sales Beat, it provides a news feed that offers the most effective email templates, a leaderboard of top performers, tips on which content is getting the most responses, deal status updates — and a virtual gong to celebrate deal closings. Sales reps, marketing personnel, and managers can add comments and share content.
