AXIOM Sales Force Development has earned No. 152 on Deloitte’s 2013 Technology Fast 500™, an annual ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Award winners were selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2008 to 2012. AXIOM Sales Force Development grew by 822%.
“We congratulate the 2013 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 winners on their continued innovation and growth,” said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. Technology leader for Deloitte’s Technology, Media & Entertainment and Telecommunications industry practice in the Americas. “New technologies like cloud and software as a service (SaaS) are at the forefront of the exponential growth we are seeing in software companies,” added Openshaw. ”The growth is beyond revenue, with SaaS and cloud technologies allowing software companies to pop up in locations outside of your major tech hubs with workers no longer tethered to a physical workplace. As these technologies become more widely adopted, we expect that other technology sectors will begin to embrace them and that will be reflected in the ranking.”
AXIOM Sales Force Development CEO Bob Sanders credits the company’s continued growth to its mission to reinvent sales as you know it. “For starters, we believe that sales is an honorable calling, a service-driven profession that gives customers the information they need to make the best possible buying decisions. At AXIOM, technology is an essential dimension of our process and development model.”
“AXIOM is leading the way technology is changing how sales people learn in real time on demand and sales leaders coach and train their teams,” said Steve Potts, AXIOM Chief Sales & Marketing Officer. “From our Opportunity Management Application to our Account Planning and Management Application to our GUIDE Sales Coaching Application, AXIOM tools drive adoption of the methodologies that improve sales performance and dramatically improve the value of your CRM. That’s because technology isn’t a part of the pitch, it is an integral part of the solution that drives learning, behavior and ultimately, sales results.” AXIOM is a Salesforce AppExchange Partner, and the AXIOM applications are powered and native to the salesforce.com platform.
Additionally in 2013 AXIOM was listed among Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies, Training Industry Top 20 Sales Training Company, and Selling Power’s Top 20 Sales Training Company.
