Is Email Really Dead? 3 Reasons Why It's Very Much Alive
With the pandemic forcing professionals to work remotely for nearly two years, the implementation of digital platforms for organisations swiftly increased
We saw the likes of Slack and Microsoft Teams flourish, both offering instant messaging and video call capabilities to create nearly seamless communication for organisations. This rise in popularity has led cynics to suggest that email is now an 'archaic' and unpopular system that only slows down an otherwise fast-paced business environment. However, when all the benefits are considered, it is clear to see the kind of leverage that email has over other mediums.

Email is a useful tool for business success, especially for the not-so-tech-savvy. It offers straightforward file sharing which reliably aids business interaction and engagement. With that in mind, here are three reasons why email is certainly not dead.

How To Craft Successful Customer Journeys
Modern enterprises are becoming increasingly aware of the need for customer-centric products and marketing to influence positive customer outcomes.
Many companies continue to invest in their digital evolution and also silo efforts to curate engagement in each touchpoint across the customer journey. Among the multiple challenges that companies face, inefficient customer journey development stays at the top, followed by inaccurate product alignment to those customers. Companies are also falling short of executing the right actions at the right times at each step within the journey.

17 Of The Best Sales Enablement Software Solutions To Consider
The editors at Solutions Review have compiled the following list to spotlight some of the best sales enablement software solutions for companies across industries to consider.
Marketing and sales are the driving forces behind almost every company's success. However, not every company's sales and marketing departments collaborate as often or as effectively as they should, which is where sales enablement can help. Gartner defines sales enablement as 'the process of providing the sales organization with the information, content, and tools that help salespeople sell more effectively.' In many cases, this process requires marketing and sales teams to be aligned and collaborative.

Sales Enablement, By Any Other Name, Would Still Drive More Revenue
Enablement is a word that has been thrown around a lot in the last few years. But unlike traditional functions such as HR or Finance, enablement has different meanings to different people.
So, what is enablement? And why do we see so many variations on the word when we're talking about enabling our sellers? Gartner is seeing enablement teams and functions have several different names, depending on the organization and what they are trying to achieve. Sales enablement continues to be the most predominant name of the function supporting sellers, but we see others as well.
