Through the years I’ve come across partnerships that fail to have the right sales enablement tools in place. It’s common. Now, there are many factors related to the rise and fall of revenues, but if you can look back and know that your sales staff is equipped with the right information, it means less head scratching and building on what you know is a good foundation.

But we can’t forget the value channel partners play in extending our reach into the market. (And if you’re one of them and reading this – thank you!)

I’m excited about this because I know it’ll help provide our partners with confidence, clarity and maybe even some extra charisma. As my CEO always tells me, data encryption software is actually pretty freaking cool.
