What Is Pod 2.0?

What Is Pod 2.0?

April 17, 2024

One year ago, we launched Pod with the aim of optimizing how sellers manage their pipeline.

Since then, we’ve spent a lot of time talking to hundreds of Account Executives (AEs) from organizations like Rewind, Soundcloud, and WebFx. We listened to their feedback about what we were doing well, where we were lacking, and most importantly, what challenges were most critical to them. When we set out to enhance Pod, it was with the voices and challenges of these AEs that guided our product development.

Today, we’re introducing Pod 2.0, the new home for smarter pipeline management.

This new iteration of the Pod platform isn't just a simple facelift (but yes, it does look nicer); it's a complete update designed to address the core challenges faced by sales professionals today.

The reality is that Pod 1.0 was about laying the groundwork and showing the art of the possible. With Pod 2.0, we are demonstrating the art in action. This evolution is not just about improvements; it's about transforming how sales are done. So what is Pod 2.0 all about?

What we heard

Sales professionals we talked to did not hold back on their workday struggles. A few recurring pains we heard:

  • Too much admin work 🫠: Admin tasks, while necessary, take time away from selling. We know this problem isn't getting better. This work can be overwhelming and chaotic, with different apps fighting for your attention throughout the day, leaving no time to actually sell.
  • Efficiency isn't enough ⏳: Simply being efficient doesn't close more deals. True success in sales comes from effectiveness. Do you really need a dozen apps, tools, or softwares to get your job done? We don’t think so.
  • Lack of direction 🧭: Reps often struggle with knowing how to close deals. They need better direction and information to be in control of their pipeline and make better decisions.

The other tools out there are just about updating your CRM, writing emails for you, or summarizing your calls. You’ve seen them; we’ve seen them. These tools might be cool, but they just aren’t enough to help sellers close deals.

What is Pod 2.0?

Pod is the first AI pipeline coach for B2B sellers, making it incredibly easy for account executives to close more deals, faster. As your new home base, Pod guides you to manage your pipeline smarter. Pod helps account executives oversee and navigate their pipelines to maximize their effectiveness in driving sales.

Picture this: Every morning you jump into Pod to take control of your workday. Whether you're reviewing your pipeline, engaging on a deal, preparing for a crucial meeting, or gearing up for a pipeline review, Pod is there to help you do your best sales work. With Pod, you’ll know where to focus, do less admin work, and never miss a follow up.

The benefits of using Pod

  • Higher conversion rates 📈: Pod helps you focus on the right deals, leading to more closed deals.
  • Lower average deal cycle ⏩: With clear guidance and prioritization, deals move through the pipeline faster.
  • More time selling ⏱️: By automating administrative tasks, Pod allows you to spend more time on actual selling.
"Pod has quickly become the top 3 apps that I use on a daily basis… I have touted it to all my colleagues that are using Salesforce.”

Who is Pod built for?

We built Pod with 3 groups in mind:

  • Built for Account Executives 💰: Take control of every sales day through clear focus, reduced admin, and staying organize
  • Empowering Sales leaders 🚀: 10x your sales team’s performance with scalable, personal playbooks and full visibility into pipelines
  • Optimizing RevOps 💨: Deliver real-time enablement with personalized recommendations and guidance for faster ramp-up times and consistent sales performance.

Pod was purpose built with sellers in mind, designed to empower individuals and facilitate peak performance. The platform also serves as a collaborative workspace for the entire team to achieve collective success. Sales is a team sport after all—Pod is there to support seamless collaboration and drive collective success.
