[Infographic] Better B2B Meeting Management with MAPs
Successfully scheduling, conducting, and evaluating strategic B2B meetings is often the first hurdle in advancing the sales process or improving the customer journey. However, our current calendar and meeting processes—which are time-intensive, lack insights, and don’t provide the necessary integrations with business applications—are no longer enough in the digital era.
The emerging category of meeting automation platforms (MAPs) offers applications designed to automate and augment these meeting management processes in order to improve meeting effectiveness and efficiency.
MAPs can leverage cloud-based deployment, enabling them to scale to keep up with the needs of the most demanding enterprises that schedule thousands to millions of meetings every year. They can integrate with critical applications, from Google G Suite to Salesforce, to streamline processes for business units. From automated communications, to in-meeting monitoring, to post-meeting descriptive and predictive analytics, meeting automation platforms provide numerous capabilities that better enable enterprises to measure B2B meetings.
