PRESS RELEASE – For Immediate Release

RESTON, VA – September 14, 2020 – ForecastEra is proud to announce that it has been recognized as a representative vendor for account planning tools. 

ForecastEra’s market-leading Account Plan Navigator solution was listed as only one of two account planning providers native to Salesforce.

“We are thrilled with the industry’s recognition, especially from a highly reputable organization like Gartner. Our inclusion in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Account Planning Tools, validates our thought leadership in the account planning space, and how ForecastEra is helping improve account management and sales execution for global sales teams – using revenue insights, predictive intelligence, and actionable analytics to drive repeatable and predictable account growth. It further validates our expertise in AI-based account planning,” said Rahul Shah, ForecastEra’s CEO.

Gartner emphasized how essential account planning has become to large sales organizations. “Maximizing customer retention and driving account growth is critical to sales organizations achieving their goals and objectives; however, account manager performance frequently falls short of sales expectations. Only 28% of existing account management channels regularly meet their cross-selling and account growth targets. This low percentage contributed to CSOs rating account growth via improved opportunity planning and management as one of their top three priorities for 2020.”
