IBM Beacon Awards recognize select Business Partners for delivering advanced cloud, analytics, mobile, security and social solutions
HERNDON, VA – February 11, 2015 – Whereoware was named a winner of a 2015 IBM Beacon Award for Outstanding Smarter Commerce Solution. Each year, this honor awards a select number of IBM Business Partners who delivered exceptional solutions to drive business value and transform the way their clients and industries do business in the future. The 2015 awards recognize achievements across a wide-range of solution areas, including, cloud, analytics, mobile, security, and social business.
“The integration of Whereoware’s Spotlight Sales app with Silverpop and Xtify helps Evergreen’s sales team provide even better service to our customers. Now our marketers immediately push relevant promotions and hot leads to sales, our managers can visually see what reps are showing and selling, and the reps’ real-time access to customer history and behavior means they walk into sales calls speaking directly to clients’ unique pain points. This makes for a far more efficient and successful sales meeting,” said John Toler, President at Evergreen. “When you have a team of 175-plus sales professionals representing your brand all over the U.S. and Canada, being able to seamlessly get on the same page from one app is priceless.”
“We are thrilled to receive an IBM Beacon Award for Outstanding Smarter Commerce Solution. While having happy clients is our first priority, recognition for our work among so many talented Business Partners is a huge honor. Being able to integrate Silverpop insights and Xtify into our sales software brings tremendous incremental value to our customers and to our product,” said Eric Dean, CEO of Whereoware.
