Canon Europe Wins 2017 SAVO SUAGIR Award
SAVO Group, the leading provider of enterprise-grade sales enablement solutions, today announce Canon Europe as the winner of the 2017 SUAGIR Award. The SUAGIR [SAVO User Alliance Group Innovation Recognition] Awards are an opportunity for SUAG [SAVO User Alliance Group] Members to showcase innovations and proven results established through unique implementations of their SAVO technology.
The innovations submitted by SAVO Customers were judged based on three criteria: Business Impact, Pioneering Enablement and Unique use of SAVO technology.
The Canon team has successfully implemented SAVO's Sales Enablement technology across 19 countries, with plans to expand to emerging markets in the coming months.
As a global company, Canon's strong brand guidelines and sales process are critical to its business, and SAVO helps to ensure that their 3000 sellers stay on brand, using only the most up-to-date images and content. The Canon SAVO implementation also provides sales account teams with a unified collaboration tool for proposal building, along with the simplicity to scale across the Geography.
Christina Leimoni, EMEA Senior Sales Enablement Manager, Canon Europe says "We are honored to receive the 2017 SUAGIR Award. One of my favorite parts of the SUAGIR Awards every year is seeing the great things that our peers are doing with their Sales Enablement programs, supported by SAVO's technology. I pick up a few ideas every year on both initiatives as well as ways to use SAVO that our team may not have otherwise thought of. This year, I hope we were able to inspire some new ideas within the Sales Enablement programs of other SUAG members and improve further how we prescribe sales specific content to our Sales teams to drive better results and customer engagement."
The SUAGIR award consists of multiple rounds of submissions, presentations and voting. In the final round, the three finalists presented their innovations to a panel of industry experts.
The panel included Matt Heinz (Heinz Marketing), Maryellen Smith (Iron Mountain), Derek Torres (Ryder System), Karen Heitke (CUNA Mutual Group) and Yarun Nahar (Quadient).
Eric Spatzer, Citrix, SUAG President said "The SAVO User Alliance Group includes real thought leaders in the space who are pushing their business towards initiative-led sales enablement, and the annual SUAGIR awards are a platform for them to showcase their innovations and hard work. It's great to see fellow Sales Enablement leaders recognized for their efforts. Through SUAG, we have the opportunity to share best practices and network throughout the year – with the SUAGIR award really showcasing all that hard work."
