Freshworks Inc., a global innovator in customer engagement software, announced that it has been recognized in the Gartner June 2019 Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation. Freshsales, its cloud-based sales CRM software, was also recognized in the report.
With a highly intuitive UI and a powerful feature set including AI-based lead scoring, visual deal pipeline and intelligent workflow automations, Freshsales gives businesses of all sizes everything they need to manage their sales in a hassle-free package.
“As a company scales, we know that it becomes increasingly essential to integrate business software applications and standardize across a single database and business process. Instead of using five siloed tools they want a single sign-on solution,” said Sidharth Malik, chief revenue officer, Freshworks Inc. “We believe that the new generation of CRMs don’t just serve as a place for businesses to store information about leads and contacts; they’re the single source of truth where you have a 360-degree view of customers. We further believe that recognition in the Magic Quadrant for SFA from Gartner validates our emergence in the category and challenges the status quo with our refreshingly easy to use sales force automation to enable organizations to create customers for life.”
