“Conversations between a business and its market are the most human, valuable, yet ignored source of data. Through its AI, Chorus augments human work, delivering the voice of the customer and unearthing valuable insights to help others learn and grow,” said Gordon Ritter, GP and Founder of Emergence Capital. “Chorus is one of a new breed of companies that builds software to help unlock our full potential and scale without eliminating people in the process. With its already massive growth, Jim’s expertise at the helm and potential to make every seller better, Chorus is poised to lead this multi-billion dollar category.”
Chorus will continue delivering innovative solutions to improve the consistency and quality of the customer experience, quota attainment, and shortening new-hire onboarding for high-growth teams, like those of Zoom, MongoDB and Hudl. New product advancements will be announced in Q2 and beyond ensuring revenue teams have more access to relevant, actionable data that helps them close more deals than ever before and provides confidence to leaders that their company is bringing their best to every customer conversation.
