- A salesperson’s account list, prioritized by enhanced account scoring, so that sellers focus their time on the accounts that are ready to engage – and identify those who need more personalized nurturing.
- Real-time visibility into account and contact activity, such as event registrations, whitepaper downloads, and more, to engage target accounts in a personalized way and at the right moment, leading to accelerated sales cycles.
