About The Technology
Sportsdigita’s Digideck has revolutionized sales enablement for organizations leveraging its suite of features and functionality. The experience starts with the creation of a “Master Deck” that Sportsdigita’s interactive design experts help to create and tailor to each client’s brand standards.
Each presentation functions like a website, but with extreme ease of use while providing a visually dynamic experience. Because Digideck is cloud-based, clients can upload an unlimited amount of rich multimedia such as videos, motion graphics, animated GIFs, and high-resolution images to bring their story to life and leave a lasting impression.
Sportsdigita’s innovation in technology allows for advanced reporting and analytics. Each organization can monitor and measure the effectiveness of their content through real-time alerts that will trigger each time a presentation is viewed and indicate how much time is spent on each slide or chapter. This provides actionable insight into what parts of each presentation prospects are the most engaged with and equips sellers with the necessary information needed to follow up with highly targeted, personalized messaging. Further optimization is gained through Digideck’s open API which allows for CRM integration driving greater sales adoption and automation of creation processes.
Looking to the future, Sportsdigita is positioned to help catalyst the Digital Footprint of its clients, which will be imperative to the next 5–10 years and beyond. With the constant evolution and proliferation of technology, Sportsdigita is poised for continued growth with the success of Digideck while influencing sales enablement best practices for clients on a global scale.
