Categories

Nominations are now closed.

  • The Omni Award: Smarter GTM™ with Account Intelligence: While 70% of the buyer journey occurs online and anonymously, buying teams are dropping signals into a digital haystack. With Account Intelligence, you have the two things you need to exploit these clues: access to all that data and a way to spin it into account-level insight.If you’re using Demandbase Account Intelligence to inject relevance into your buyer’s journey — if you’ve ended account blindness, omni-spam, and hunch-based selling — this award is for you!
  • The Orchestra Award: Smarter ABM with ABX Cloud: Account-based experience (ABX) is the next evolution in ABM, focused around the customer experience. ABX uses Account Intelligence and the Engagement Platform to help you orchestrate sales and marketing moves and inject relevance into every step of the B2B buyer’s journey.If you’re using ABX Cloud to raise the ABM bar — no, destroy the bar — this category is for you!
  • The Bullseye Award: Smarter Digital Marketing with Advertising Cloud: Most ad tech is built to sell sneakers to individuals – designed for reach, clicks, high volume/low consideration e-commerce transactions. B2B is different. The B2B sale is way harder. Bigger buying teams. Longer sales cycles. Dozens of touchpoints before the deal is sealed. Demandbase Advertising Cloud is the only adtech platform designed, built, and optimized for B2B.If you’re using Advertising Cloud to advertise smarter, end omni-spam, and swarm your best opportunities, this award is for you!
  • The Impact Award: Smarter Selling with Sales Intelligence Cloud: B2B sales has changed for good. The stakes are higher, the competition fiercer. Hunch-based selling just won’t cut it. Buyers expect sellers to be informed and add value at the right time, in the right way. Anything else is just noise.If you’re using Demandbase Sales Intelligence Cloud to sell smarter, engage more intelligently, and slam dunk your quota, this award is for you!
  • The Insight Award: Smarter Data with Data Cloud: Today’s B2B buying journeys are almost entirely digital, masking the identities and intentions of accounts and their buying teams until the journey is almost over. The winners in this game are those who learn to use data and insights to light up the journey and deeply understand their accounts.If you’re injecting world-class data and intelligence into your tech stack with Demandbase Data Cloud — whether for data management or to embed data directly into your data lakes or data warehouses — and gaining new insights because of it, this award is for you!
