Accounting for 10-50% of B2B marketing budgets in 2019, B2B marketers relied on physical events as a massive revenue source, effectively filling the funnel with leads, closing deals, and extending customer contracts.

Would CMO Kevin Ruane recommend renaming a brand during a pandemic? No, he wouldn’t; but they had to do precisely that when Syncsort acquired the data and software division of Pitney Bowes in December 2019.

Don’t take just our word for it though—this week’s guest is…
 
Like many B2B companies, K2 Software has really zeroed in on what makes its low-code process automation platform mission-critical for its customers.
