As the entire B2B universe is busy deciphering and implementing ABM initiatives since last couple of years, a paradigm shift is slowly and steadily gaining momentum with synchronization of marketing, sales and sales development teams. This is leading to ABE – Account Based Everything, as true account based initiatives are not just about marketing alone.
Unfortunately, most of the enterprises are still under the misconception that ABE is only about sales and marketing and miss out on whole approach or big picture. The compound to this, the area of data quality is still haunting many enterprises who are planning to charter ABE path. Most of them get mislead by the sheer glitz of volume of database offered by few players who claim to possess hundreds of millions of contacts which in reality are not at all ‘relevant contacts’. Also, the shift to ABE requires solid firmographics and techno-graphics details apart from knowing the exact company taxonomy – parent, subsidiaries or HQ/branches. On the contact side, you should also need a detailed view of level, function granularity for pitching it perfectly to relevant contacts. It is no surprise that as per SiriusDecisions, only 20% of companies have had full account-based programs in place for more than one year.
To address above pertinent ABE issues, SMARTe has come up with innovative and revolutionary enterprise DaaS suite – Relevant Contacts.
