Buyers expect it,” said Intentsify CMO, Jennifer Ross. “It’s the reason that understanding and acting on buyer-intent signals is so essential. Yet, B2B organizations struggle with gathering, analyzing, and using buying-intent signals. Intentsify’s rapid growth to date is a direct result of how the company is delivering on the promise of intent data with powerful integrated technology, data, and programs that activate dynamic, future-proof go-to-market strategies. It’s a game changer—not only for accelerating performance across the organization, but for improving the overall buying experience. It's going to usher in the next evolution of B2B go-to-market motions. I’m thrilled to be part of this next phase of Intentisfy’s growth.”
