Demandbase: A New Twist In The Lead Management Automation Market
JULY 31, 2009
Demand Stream™ includes a Web widget that shows sales and marketing the names of companies visiting the Web site in near real-time. I worry that this tool only ends up helping sales pick out cold calls to make, and is not used by marketers enough to segment, collect, and improve their prospecting databases. I would also put another group — one more focused on helping marketing align with, support, and enable sales: firms like BrightMarket, einsof, Longwood Software, and Salesforce.com with their Saleforce Content offering, to name a few. I’m sure I forgot a few.
