"We continue to be very impressed with CEO Howard Brown and the entire Revenue.io management team. The sales engagement space has become fairly opaque with automation often
the focus of competitors. Revenue.io is innovating around the value of meaningful and context-rich conversations coupled with advanced machine AI-driven training and supervision tools to accelerate a company's sales. We believe this is what makes them stand out and that this is where the growth will be."
