Clari Connect is an intelligent, real-time messaging application fully integrated into the Clari platform, designed especially for salespeople.
To celebrate Clari’s ISO 27001:2013 information security certification, their CTO, Venkat Rangan wrote a blog post about their path to success. Venkat asked our team at Ekko, an ISO 27001 consulting firm, to work closely with Clari throughout the certification process, and to offer my perspective on their successful effort.
Today, we announced our ISO 27001 certification, a major milestone and the culmination of a company-wide effort. ISO certification validates how serious Clari is about the security of our customer’s data and provides our current and future customers with the comfort of third-party recognition.
I'm Marc Silberstrom, Clari's new WW VP of Sales. If you're reading this post, there's a good chance we'll meet in person before too long, but until then, I'd like to tell you why I joined. Two big reasons: I've needed what Clari offers for longer than Clari has been in business and I've worked so hard making my own sales teams better that I'm ready to make everybody's sales teams better.
I’m incredibly excited to welcome Medallia to the Clari family. If you haven’t already come across Medallia, they’re the global leader in helping companies capture and interpret customer feedback — all to improve the customer experience. It’s powerful stuff driving their growth to over 700 employees and a total investment of $255 million.
The Super Bowl may be the ultimate end to a long season, but make no mistake — it’s a one-time climax. NFL players who never made it to the big game say they’d trade records and pro bowl selections for a single opportunity. And those who get there say, “You’ve got to enjoy it. You never know if you’ll be back.”
With our team, product, and customer base growing, we need our reps to be their best — effective, efficient, and consistently doing what works. It’s time for a new kind of leader on the sales team who can cut through the noise, refine rep actions, and arm reps to make a persuasive case in every sales opportunity. Meet Kharisma Moraski.
The New Year is always an exciting time for Clari marketing — creating new campaigns, locking in quarterly plans, and this year, an all-new website. We often say “we’re inspired by sales teams,” and we mean it. Like you, we worked right through the holidays to ensure the successful launch of our new site, and I couldn’t be more proud of our team.
2016 is the year we drop the bullshit in sales technology and move to data-driven, no-bullshit execution. And it’s about time.
This is a different kind of 2015 lookback. One year ago, Clari was a bouncing baby 2½ year old. We had our initial product, the greatest handful of early customers anyone could want, investors who had just filled our bank account with $20 million of trust, and an incredible sales-savvy, data-science wielding, customer-success obsessive, fun-loving team.
A year later, our product is exactly where I hoped, yet almost unrecognizable. How is that possible?
