Sales Force Europe Leverages Relationships to Help Data Science Adazza Reach Three Continents

For the Telecom space, “You have to have these historical relationships. Everyone we’ve worked with at Sales Force Europe has these relationships. Of course I was skeptical at first because a lot of companies promise this, but Sales Force Europe delivers.

Lead generation in terms of content marketing isn’t going to work with our Telecom customers — you have to have the relationships and all of Sales Force Europe does. We had some relationships through investors and other we’ve built, but once we partnered with Sales Force Europe, the depths of their relationships helped accelerate each sale.

Raymond Rouf, CEO, Adazza

Sales Force Europe helped Adazza:

  • In first six months, brought the startup to Europe, Central Asia, and Africa
  • Built three-continent market analysis and success strategy
  • Targeted only within telecommunications vertical, built on SFE’s execs’ networks
