SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) - InsideView, the only sales intelligence solution that helps sales executives get in the door and win once they're in, today announced that Rosetta Stone, a leading provider of technology-based language-learning solutions, has significantly increased sales productivity and results with InsideView. Since deploying InsideView, Rosetta Stone's Corporate Sales team has increased its lead-to-opportunity conversion rates by 22%, win rates by 12% and average deal size by 33%. InsideView provides the critical business insights, social connections and deep contact information to effectively engage and convert the most promising prospects.
"InsideView gives us the power to identify and work with key contacts within an account and close the sale," said Charles Frydenborg, Senior Director of Corporate Sales, North America for Rosetta Stone. "And perhaps most importantly, InsideView provides the big-picture insights that allow us to educate our target customers about the need for language learning within their own companies. With this information, they often become champions of our products which allows us to rapidly grow the size of our accounts."
Rosetta Stone has aggressively scaled its direct sales organization to capitalize on the global demand for language-learning solutions. Rosetta Stone selected InsideView to replace an ineffective set of sales tools and contact sources and to gain access to the industry's largest database of global contacts. With InsideView, sales executives are now able to locate the right person or department and target qualified prospects at the time they are most likely to be interested in making a purchase.
InsideView has become an integral part of the Rosetta Stone sales process. "Because we don't sell to a single title or department, finding the right prospect can be time-consuming and ineffective. InsideView surfaces pertinent information about prospects, and makes it easier for our sales team to effectively target accounts and decision makers," added Frydenborg. "I can't imagine going back to our old way of doing things." With InsideView, sales teams can end cold calling and instead take advantage of "warm introductions" from colleagues and social connections to quickly develop trusted relationships that lead to sales.
"Rosetta Stone is using InsideView to streamline the process of prospecting and selling -- and the results speak for themselves," said Umberto Milletti, CEO of InsideView. "We are pleased to welcome Rosetta Stone to our family of successful customers."
