Extreme Networks Wins Forrester Groundswell Award

As the head of Sales Enablement, I am constantly striving to leverage new tools and processes to increase our pipeline and overall success.  It was with that mindset that we set out on our  Sales 2.0 program, which is powered by social and cloud solutions, leveraging social networking to greatly improve the sales and marketing processes.  The culmination this week is a Forrester Groundswell Award in the Business-to-Employee Collaboration category, competing with 150 entries from around the world.

In the video below I talk about our integration of  leading collaboration and gamification technologies, including Salesforce Chatter, Google Apps, TimeTrade, Influitive and Hoopla. These tools and our social mindset have enabled some incredible results for the company!

I would also welcome your comments below on how your organization is utilizing cloud and social technologies to transform your business.
