E-Learning Solutions Provider Relies on PlaceWare Across the Company To Sell More, Meet More Efficiently and Present More Effectively While Keeping Costs Down
"With PlaceWare, CADTRAIN is able to perform over twice as many sales meetings, resulting in increased revenue," said Dave Cohen, vice president, CADTRAIN. "For every PlaceWare meeting that takes an hour, it would typically take at least a day or more to visit each prospect. PlaceWare is very effective for us, because the more product demonstrations we can do, the more we can increase sales."
"PlaceWare gives companies such as CADTRAIN greater reach, enabling them to meet with more prospects, shorten the sales cycle and in the end, increase sales," said Dustin Grosse, vice president of worldwide marketing and strategy at PlaceWare. "PlaceWare is easy for anyone to use from any place, at any time, and is perfect for sales demonstrations. PlaceWare web conferencing makes it simple for companies and their customers to stay in touch."
"We've found that a sales prospect is much more likely to agree to an hour-long meeting via PlaceWare than to a full day spent hosting a visit, which makes it an extraordinarily useful tool for us to present our products," Cohen continued. "For a company such as ours, reduced travel costs are extremely important, as well as having more time available for selling. Using PlaceWare is at the core of our sales cycle."
Beyond sales meetings, PlaceWare is used across CADTRAIN to train partners and resellers, present public web seminars, hold internal meetings and more. The company holds five to 10 training sessions per month for partners and resellers, presents sales webinars every other month, and conducts its distance learning program for customers via PlaceWare. In addition, because the company's personnel are geographically dispersed across the U.S. and Canada, PlaceWare allows them to conduct internal meetings with ease.
