Tech Industry Gets Political


In the last decade or so, the tech industry has become increasingly political, which is different from being politicized. If I had to guess, I’d say that for the most part everyone is on the same page. However, many of the largest technology concerns have come to the realization that to protect their outlook, they need representation in Washington in the form of lobbyists.

Verizon's Mission of Self-Destruction


Customers and investors increasingly are wondering why Verizon and Verizon Wireless are hurting themselves with their actions. For starters, Verizon decided to battle its own striking workers on the public stage. That battle shed lots of bad blood, and it will be tough to close those wounds. Many companies experience strikes, but most are settled quickly and quietly. That’s the secret. However, over the last decade or two, every time Verizon workers’ contracts have come up for renewal, the process has been longer, uglier and messier.

The Sales Process Starts With Retention


Despite the numbers that show how lucrative retention is in an increasingly subscription-driven economy, the emphasis has been on new customer acquisition. That is still true, according to a recent study. Forty-two percent of the firms surveyed said they were increasing their budgets for customer acquisition, while only 33 percent said the budget for retention would increase. New customers always earn sales kudos, but customers kept tend to be taken for granted.

3 Ways CRM Can Help Sales in the IoT Era


It’s becoming increasingly clear that the nature of the sales profession is changing.
Salespeople are no longer the ones who introduce products to their customers — in most cases, especially in business-to-business settings, customers have done a lot of research on their own and are close to a decision before they talk to a salesperson. This trend, which has been long in coming, has some people in sales panicked. One million B2B salespeople in the U.S. will lose their jobs to self-service e-commerce by 2020, Forrester has predicted.
