Enterprise organizations have a sophisticated go-to-market approach, with specialized teams focused on products or geographies and subject matter experts who compose their ABM program development. The problem is that when each organization chooses its own ABM approach and technology, costs explode and teams battle their peers for business, causing anarchy within the organization and sowing confusion among target accounts.
Knowing who to prioritize and what will compel them to take action are really two pieces of the same puzzle. But in the quest for an ABM program that takes full advantage of personalization and relevance, marketers often make the critical mistake of viewing intent data and predictive analytics as separate and distinct.
MRP has long enjoyed widespread recognition among sales and marketing leaders for being the only enterprise-class predictive ABM platform. Top research firms have also consistently ranked MRP as the best solution for global enterprises. We are honored to add to this acknowledgement by being named a global ABM leader by independent analyst firm Research in Action.

The spread of COVID-19 shook up the B2B sales economy. Enterprises have been forced to take strategic steps to combat the economic consequences of the crisis and keep pace with constantly shifting customer demand. Amidst this adversity, lessons on the future of B2B sales are emerging.
On the surface, it seems obvious: B2B sales will keep moving into the digital landscape. While the digital realm presents significant opportunities, there’s also more pressure to capitalize on them. As sales teams are unable to “press the flesh” in person, they’re more reliant on marketing teams to provide data on prospective customers. B2B leaders who commit to further digitizing their go-to-market models can gain a competitive advantage through enterprise-class ABM strategies.
If you work at a large enterprise, social distancing might feel like déjà vu. That’s because long before the pandemic, the phenomenon of “corporate distancing” had resulted in poor collaboration among teams, divisions, and product lines. Corporate distancing creates chaos, and it ultimately affects your customers’ journey and makes them feel distanced as well.
