Developed at Harvard, Qstream offers a powerfully simple – and highly scalable – approach to driving sales force performance. Using Qstream’s native mobile apps or email, reps respond to short, challenge scenarios pushed to their phone or other mobile device every few days. Built-in game mechanics, including leaderboards, engage reps in an experience that’s fun and effective. The platform’s onboard analytics engine captures critical data points and instantly transforms them into actionable management insights, such as targeted coaching opportunities. Unlike solutions that tether client conversations to rote presentations, Qstream equips sales reps for dynamic, value-added business conversations that drive revenue and keep pace with market change.
“As a finalist for MassTLC Technology of the Year award finalist, we are honored to be among such esteemed company, ” said Duncan Lennox, CEO and co-founder of Qstream. “Today’s far more complex selling process is overdue for a transformation, and we’re delighted to be assisting many of the world’s leading organizations to sell more effectively.”
Finalists were selected from hundreds of nominations, as judged by panels of executives, investors, analysts, media and thought leaders in each of the 16 categories who participated in the selection process. The pool of finalists will be further narrowed during the coming weeks, with winners announced on Thursday, September 11, at the MassTLC Leadership Awards Gala at the Westin Waterfront in Boston.
