Walnut: Interactive and insightful product demos

Upon their launch in mid-2021, Walnut achieved and maintained a degree of virality within many sales circles for being a codeless platform that enables B2B companies to fully customize, manage, and optimize their sales demos—all with zero downtime, or loading time issues. Its early adopters include the likes of Adobe, NetApp, Treasure Data and People AI.

The Walnut platform itself also collects deep insights on the team and prospects demo usage, to help improve the sales process.

Dooly: Sales pipeline management

One-stop-shops in which insights can be viewed in a glance is always a good thing, and it is exactly where Dooly shines. This sales pipeline solution allows sales reps to manage all their deals at once, with one-click updates from a centralized view. This always keeps them ready for their next pipe review, and also saves them from hours of time that would have been spent making manual updates on Salesforce. Some of the heavy-hitters currently using Dooly include Figma, Asana, and BigCommerce, which explains why the solutions raked in a slew of distinctions through the course of 2021.

Gong: Sales revenue intelligence

Anyone who is anyone in sales has heard of the beast that is Gong. The Gong Revenue Intelligence Platform delivers insights to customer-facing teams that are based on customer interactions. The insights help revenue and go-to-market teams make better informed business decisions to help achieve greater profitability and scalability. Thousands of big brands, such as Slack, Shopify, and LinkedIn use Gong for the intelligence that is gathered from contact to close, and its AI coaching recommendations.

B2B sales and revenue teams worldwide crown Chili Piper as the most advanced scheduling and routing software. They have a range of solutions under their umbrella, which collectively helps teams double their inbound conversion rates, increase customer satisfaction, and reach new levels of productivity. Twilio, AirBnB, and even Gong are amongst the high growth revenue teams that are turning to Chili Piper to qualify and turn leads into meetings.
