What according to you are some of the must-have sales technologies that everyone in technology sales including field sales should keep as part of their tech stack?

We use Slack for communication and Notion for documentation. Both have their advantages and allow us as a remote company to stay in touch and up to date with all relevant information.

Given the current pandemic and the need for SaaS/global technology sales professionals to have more video calls to enable their prospecting efforts and outreach, how are you seeing sales conversations or efforts evolve and change due to this?

The demand for video as a communication tool is more crucial than ever. Companies/educators/everyone is realizing the effect video can have on communication and getting a message across in a more appropriate and impactful way. At Biteable we offer that ability to convey a message with a user friendly interface that provides professional and engaging videos.

Given the new normal that everyone in technology sales and marketing is now required to adjust to, what is your top most thought today?

Its hard to tell, depending on how fast the economy can re-open. The need for tech will always be there.
