DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - December 03, 2015) - CommercialTribe, the market leader in sales enablement solutions, announced today a $6 million funding from Boulder Ventures, Grotech Ventures, and Access Venture Partners. CommercialTribe helps enterprise organizations consistently hit their revenue targets.
"According to SiriusDecisions, the number one reason reps fail to hit quota is their inability to articulate value," said Paul Ironside, founder and CEO of CommercialTribe. "Our platform allows reps to watch gold standard delivery of different pitch scenarios. Reps practice and record each scenario as many times as they need to get it right, then submit for coaching, certification, and feedback. Our approach accelerates new rep productivity, shortens sales cycles, and increases both win rates and deal size."
"CommercialTribe is disrupting traditional training models by enabling a culture of practice in large, distributed sales organizations," says Kyle Lefkoff, General Partner at Boulder Ventures. "Paul and his team bring their Gartner and CEB Challenger sales experience to the table, so they have a first-hand understanding of what it takes for sales organizations to drive revenue."
The infusion of new capital lets CommercialTribe continue to expand their platform for sales leaders and enablement professionals to onboard reps, launch new products, and continuously improve rep performance. CommercialTribe serves leading enterprises like SunGard, Veritas, Riverbed, Grainger, and Pearson.
