Gartner Recognizes HubSpot as the December 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for CRM Lead Management
This Is the Second Time Gartner Has Chosen HubSpot as the Preferred Outstanding CRM Lead Management System by Business Customers
HubSpot has consistently been an extremely popular growth platform among marketers and sellers since the last decade. The company began operations sometime in 2006 as a start-up and grew rapidly. From meager revenues of $255,555 in 2006, the company’s revenues at the end of 2017 were a whopping $375.6 million. HubSpot as a business rapidly expanded from catering to smaller companies to making larger corporations (1000 + employees) leverage their products and services.
The number one reason, industry watchers state, for the phenomenal rise of HubSpot is the adaptability of their products, services and solutions. HubSpot’s offerings resolve every problem that sellers and marketers face as they go about their business. Now, Gartner has recognized them for the second time in the same year (May 2018 was the first time) for developing an outstanding CRM for Lead Management.
