Mediafly, InsightSquared | January 28, 2022

Mediafly Acquisition Of InsightSquared
Mediafly, a sales enablement and content management platform, completed its acquisition of revenue intelligence solution InsightSquared to help power its Revenue360 revenue intelligence solution.

Revenue360 is designed to provide an insights-driven sales system that captures and analyzes data at every buyer touchpoint to help accurately forecast, coach and make prescriptive recommendations for the next best sales action. The combined Mediafly and InsightSquared solution will launch within Revenue360 in March 2022 and seeks to create one visual dashboard for content engagement, conversational intelligence, buyer intent, value engagement and sales activity data.

The product integration closely follows Mediafly’s $10 million funding round, where the company indicated it wanted to invest its new capital — which totaled $35 million total for 2021 — in revenue intelligence capabilities, among other initiatives. 

By marrying Mediafly’s best-in-class sales enablement, content engagement and value selling tools with InsightSquared’s leading revenue intelligence, forecasting and analytics capabilities, we are providing the complete revenue enablement platform to meet today’s market demands,” said Carson Conant, CEO of Mediafly, in a statement.

When revenue teams leverage the combined power of Mediafly and InsightSquared, they eliminate the need to rely on partial intelligence and gut instinct to forecast sales and inform buyer-seller interactions. They get a clear picture of what’s happening at every touchpoint within the buyer journey, both in and out of the sales meeting, with prescriptive next steps to engage buyers, move deals forward and drive predictable revenue growth.”

With the integration of G2 Buyer Intent, Rollworks customers now have a powerful way to capture multi-faceted, account-level intent signals and can use that data to better identify and prioritize the right accounts across their entire account-based marketing approach. RollWorks recently found that nearly three in four marketing and sales professionals indicate customer acquisition as the primary goal of their ABM strategies.

Ideal for organizations wanting to gain more granular account activity data, expand their prospecting and engagement, and identify customers at risk for churn, RollWorks' G2 integration provides the keen insight both marketing and sales teams need to understand where accounts are within their buying journey and determine who, how, and when accounts and specific users should be engaged. "Comprehensive, accurate data is the lifeblood of any mature account-based marketing strategy," said Mike Stocker, VP of Partnerships at RollWorks.

Customize Account Journey Stages to inform marketing and sales strategy for outreach and view how accounts are progressing through their designated buying journey. View Account Journey Events to help determine what is influencing an account's progression and regression and inform ABM efforts.
