Since our announcement two weeks ago on our successful Series B funding, the Sales 2.0 momentum keeps rolling on here at InsideView.  Last week we were pleased to introduce our latest customer, spend-management solution Ariba, who decided to expand their use of SalesView after a successful pilot phase.  Ariba sales director Jason Solinger noted, “SalesView is a powerful example of Sales 2.0…The insights we gain from SalesView are pivotal in helping us foster and close important deals.”

Earlier this week we also announced a new member to our board, veteran business leader and VC investor Robert J. Majteles.  Majteles is the founder of VC firm Treehouse Capital, and stated that it’s InsideView’s innovations in the Sales 2.0 arena which make it an important innovator in the enterprise today:  “I recognize the power of InsideView’s Sales 2.0 platform, which is truly leading the direction for enterprise-level sales intelligence systems,” Majteles said.

A final update coming from New York City, where CEO Umberto Milletti was busy presenting at the Software Information Industry’s Previews Day, part of its annual Info Industry Summit event.  We were chosen, alongside a handful of other exciting emerging companies, to present our technologies before media, investors, and potential partners. The blogosphere was alive with chatter surrounding the event.  Content-focused blogger John Blossom called InsideView a “good business information middleware, if you will, with a lot of high short-term integration value and an apparently good architecture for expansion. Strong presentation.”

A busy week, and we’re just as enthusiastic about the innovations and progress that the principles of Sales 2.0 are making in the industry and across the enterprise as we are about highlighting InsideView’s specific successes as a pioneer in this exciting shift.
