Today, B2B buyers are more sophisticated and digitally enabled with increasingly complex demands. In addition, 40% of the large enterprise deals go dormant, remaining in ‘indecision mode’ for months (Challenger Sales). xiQ’s AI-powered, personality-driven B2B sales and marketing platform is designed to address these challenges, and enables B2B sellers and marketers to engage buyers at every stage of the buying journey and close more deals faster.
