Salesforce, the global leader in CRM, today announced it has completed its acquisition of LevelJump, a sales enablement and readiness solution built on the Salesforce platform.
With the acquisition now closed, Salesforce will integrate LevelJump’s modern, outcome-based enablement and coaching within the Sales Cloud interface, guiding and facilitating better engagement and measurable impact on the sales process.
“As handshakes and team meetings have moved online, it’s critical onboarding and enablement also evolve,” said Taksina Eammano, SVP Product, Sales Cloud. “Bringing LevelJump into Salesforce will empower our customers to effectively engage a distributed workforce and measure success based on outcomes and peer learning—ultimately building high-performing teams fast.”
According to ZipRecruiter, the number of open sales roles has risen steadily this year, up 65% to more than 700,000 open positions around the United States. By integrating LevelJump and Trailhead, Salesforce will play an even larger role in upskilling the future sales workforce – an increasingly vital need in the modern workplace — since enablement is embedded directly within Sales Cloud. This technology will make it easier than ever to build high-performing sales teams fast, accelerate deals with data-driven coaching, skill-up sales reps with contextual, real-time learning, and tie enablement to revenue.
Sales team enablement key to attracting, retaining talent
The acquisition comes at the right time.
Developing and coaching sales teams at scale is imperative for growth in the new ‘Pandemic Era’ of work; And career growth and training opportunities will be key factors for retention as companies navigate how to adapt their company culture to a hybrid workplace.
Smooth onboarding, training, and development experiences for sales reps are essential to creating engaged teams; retaining and attracting strong talent; and ultimately, closing deals.
We are excited to welcome LevelJump to Salesforce!
