We bid farewell to a year full of achievements for ForceManager, one which saw us emerge as the industry’s leading personal sales assistant, digitizing the experience of field sales teams worldwide.
Since closing a $12m Series B round of funding in December last year we’ve been extremely busy with new acquisitions, product launches, and international expansion. So to keep you all in the loop, we thought we’d put together a little summary of what’s been going behind the scenes in 2018:
ForceManager Acquires Sellf
In September we acquired the Italian company Sellf, adding gamification to our sales application and accelerating our entry into the Italian market. Soon you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of this joining of forces, so stay tuned! Read more.
Recognition for Innovation
We are proud and grateful for having been recognized as the most innovative solution in the “Premios Comprendedor 2018” category at the SME Awards of the Year as well as the Insurance 3.0 Competition. We were also nominated as the most committed company by LinkedIn’s Life Page Awards.
Speaking of Innovation and New Technologies
We also participated at various conferences, speaking to industry leaders, and discussing our vision on the technological trends that are affecting the future of field sales.
You can see us participating at the MWC, Insurtech Connect Las Vegas, Intelligent Insurtech Europe, DIA Munich or LIMRA NYC and many more.
Creating the Sales Assistant of the Future
This year we took another step forward in sales innovation with the launch of Cognitive; an AI-powered sales assistant that acts as the “Siri” for sales reps. We also released NewsManager; the new feature that assures sales managers that messages sent to the team are open, read and understood.
Growth and Expansion
With the recent acquisition of Sellf, we have established ourselves as the leading mobile CRM in Europe and plan to expand internationally with the opening of our US office in NYC in September 2018.
This growth is only possible with a talented, young and committed team. We have grown from 70 to 150 employees in less than a year, with 22 new open roles that will drive our growth and innovation in 2019.
Check out our latest video “The Dream” to see how ForceManager is transforming sales through technology, making field sales teams more productive than ever and helping them focus on what really motivates them: creating relationships with customers.
Thank you for your support and ongoing confidence in ForceManager. We look forward to what 2019 has in store.
