PROVO – June 20, 2013 – XANT, the leading provider of cloud-based sales automation technology for inside sales professionals, today had thousands of sales leaders joining its Inside Sales Virtual Summit. The Summit ran for seven hours and featured 5 keynotes speakers and seven tracks of sales topics, capturing the best thinking on sales from 62 experts including bestselling authors, Fortune 500 executives and industry leaders. Individual webinars are currently available on demand at XANT. “The collaboration of sales influencers on this magnitude has never before been accomplished,” said Dave Elkington, XANT CEO. “And as we continue to host the webinars on demand to reach additional professionals, XANT just transcended the race of generating quality content for online marketing.” As the sales industry is evolving, XANT is a leader in shaping best practices for inside sales departments. A seminal research study on qualifying leads has been downloaded from XANT more than 200,000 times. As the company continues to add value to the industry, the Inside Sales Virtual Summit was conceived to generate quality content for sales professionals seeking to improve revenues and minimize expenses. “The Inside Sales Virtual Summit accomplished the same goals of a traditional trade show – influence, leads, content – for minimal costs and with minimal lead time,” said Ken Krogue, president of XANT. “By collaborating directly with sales experts and partner companies, we have set a new standard for virtual events.” “Just as sales has evolved from wining and dining the client to providing trusted expertise, so have events evolved,” explained Krogue. “Events no longer need to be hosted in hip or exotic locations. They simply need to share quality content that will have value to the participants.” The event was hosted with webinar software and with virtual trade show company On24. Tens of thousands of people were able to register through the last session and attend the event from their home or office, visit online trade show “booths,” watch presentations, network, chat, talk to company representatives and even hang out with their favorite authors and experts in a Google hangout chat at the end of the day. On-demand versions of all sessions are available at no cost at www.www.insidesales.com/summit/register and eBooks will be available for download following the event.
