Reed Business Information (RBI) has selected CloudSense to rapidly grow its cross-media and digital advertising revenues.

A unified sales experience on Salesforce

The CloudSense Platform will replace RBI’s legacy systems in the UK and Netherlands to provide a global solution that improves ad sales processes. With CloudSense, RBI will create a unified sales experience on Salesforce and fully integrate into Google’s DFP Ad server system to drive the organization’s sales transformation program across operations in the UK and the Netherlands.

Global solution that improves ad sales processes

Unified sales experience

RBI is addressing the market shift to digital while continuing to protect existing print ad revenues. Its legacy systems were preventing sales teams from further expanding digital sales to complement established print titles such as New Scientist, Estates Gazette, and Farmer’s Weekly in the UK and Boerderij in the Netherlands.

Driving efficiency and accelerating growth

“We were looking for Salesforce native technology with out-of-the-box integration with Google DoubleClick for Publishers to increase efficiency and standardize our global advertising sales and back-end fulfilment process. We selected the CloudSense Platform after a competitive process as it matched this profile exactly,” says John Paul Bedwell, Sales Director, RBI UK.

Annet ten Pas, Manager Sales Operations, RBI Netherlands adds: “We are anticipating a big improvement in process efficiency across both regions. This will enable our teams to focus on selling and innovating new digital products to accelerate our aggressive growth plans reducing the amount of time spent on sales administration.”

RBI has initially bought CloudSense Platform licenses for 250 people. Salesforce Sales Cloud is already successfully running in the Netherlands and is being implemented by the RBI team in the UK working with a joint team on the CloudSense integration. “This will give our businesses and sales teams a single view of their markets and improved efficiencies through sharing information, user training, support and development activities,” says Bedwell.

“CloudSense is enabling more effective selling, faster product innovation and full customer lifecycle management”

“This prestigious deal is evidence of CloudSense’s ever increasing success in the media sector,” says CloudSense co-founder.
