Business buying has completely changed since 2020. More people than ever are working from home. Purchases are made online 24/7. Buyers now hold all the power, and expect better experiences from the companies they purchase from.
“The pandemic had a huge impact on SaaS purchasing,” said David Cancel, CEO and co-founder of Drift. “Today’s buyers expect speed and personalisation at every step of their journey. They get this from consumer brands, and it’s time for B2B to catch up. By expanding into London, Drift can better support our customers across all of Europe, the Middle East and Africa. No matter where you’re located, you can tap Drift to supercharge your pipeline and generate more revenue, faster.”
Through Drift’s highly-effective Conversational Marketing and Conversational Sales solutions, regional companies can provide instant, human experiences to buyers anywhere, anytime — online.
“Europe is leading today’s digital transformation, and we’re thrilled to help the region’s B2B organisations thrive in this new revenue era,” said Richard Wright, vice president of sales, Europe, Drift. “Our mission is to provide a new way for businesses to buy from businesses. Successful digital transformation requires a deep understanding of the local European market. And we’re excited to partner with outstanding organisations like Adobe, 6sense, Outreach, SalesLoft and Demandbase to grow revenue by making business buying frictionless, more enjoyable, and more human.”
