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.

PHILADELPHIA - May 05, 2020 - (Business Wire) - MRP Prelytix, the only enterprise-class predictive ABM platform, today released the first in a series of reports detailing major development trends in various technology ecosystems. The ‘Covid-19 Working from Home - Intent Trends Report’, details how the surge in remote working has impacted the Virtual Office, Unified Communications (UCaaS), and Video Conferencing markets in face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although the sales-marketing disconnect and rivalry has certainly kept life, business, and company gossip interesting, organizations must evolve. If companies want to reap the rewards of ABM, it is critical that their marketing and sales teams get on the same page and focus on developing pipelines filled with quality leads and the right opportunities.
The fact is that intent data isn’t predictive… it’s backward-looking, it poses significant latency as a marketing trigger, and it involves a lot more than a subscription with a single vendor. Intent certainly helps identify accounts, but it is a very one-dimensional view of the information needed. Intent data swells up over time, so your intent provider may be pointing this out to you late because they didn’t capture enough of the signal early enough to let you know in time, or you get too many false positives. Marketers often get this wrong, and there is a tremendous amount of pressure to do something with all the tools that they have. But measuring success by delivering content to accounts that display implied intent, at best, will only drive awareness or provide the wrong level of content to prospects who could be in market for a different solution that you have.
