Happy New Year to our Collaboration Partners!

Do you know that only about 8 percent of people keep their New Year’s resolutions for the full year?

At the beginning of each year, I try to set a New Year’s resolution that is SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound), so that I’ll keep it. I especially like to set goals that are attainable and will drive tremendous growth in our business together.

This year, I want to focus on helping you sell all the incredible collaboration solutions within our completely refreshed portfolio, by providing you with simple tools and programs to sell collaboration differently. I’d like to challenge you to make one of your New Year’s resolutions to utilize the many incentives and programs that we recently announced which are specifically designed to help you grow your business.

At Collaboration Summit, we announced many ways that you can start making bold moves in your business to accelerate growth. Here’s a list of four programs to utilize immediately:

  1. Collaboration Tools Challenge – Get to know the tools our sales teams use to increase collaboration deal sizes, shorten sales cycles, and address our customers’ toughest business needs. And, if you share your successes of how you’ve used our new tools, you’ll be entered into a contest to win an MX300 G2 or a DX80! Learn more.  
  2. Business Outcomes Accelerator – Build your workplace transformation skills with this contest. Learn more.
  3. Software Lifecycle Challenge – Win a software lifecycle practice development workshop for your team. Learn more.
  4. Sales Tool Contest – Share how a collaboration sales tool helped you close a deal and earn a chance to win a DX80 or MX300. Learn more.

Now is your chance to start the New Year off right! Pick some or ALL of the programs above and commit to keeping that resolution of accelerating your collaboration growth with our customers.

As we continue on our journey of innovation and partnership, I challenge you to lead your customers forward to deliver collaboration.next together!

Have a great year and good selling!
