For 2011 Q3, we are delighted to announce the addition of six important new customers, two major partnerships, and several significant awards during the third quarter of 2011.
Building on demand for its Fight Frugalnomics movement, an initiative to arm sales and marketing with value-focused sales and marketing tools , Alinean added several new customers including NetSuite, IGT, Falconstor, Palo Alto Software, Xirrus and Lifesize. During the quarter, Alinean also expanded its partner community to include leading IT publisher IDG, and leading marketing automation firm Marketo.
"As the economic malaise continues through 2011, Frugalnomics remains in full effect, with more buyers continuing to guard budgets and demanding quantifiable business benefits from any new investments," said Tom Pisello, Chairman and Founder of Alinean. "Savvy B2B solution providers recognize that new value-focused marketing content and sales tools are needed to connect, engage and sell to these more empowered, skeptical and frugal buyers."
