Single source of truth for all your content.
All your Marketing Collateral in one place
Crescendo is designed to ensure that all your marketing collateral, documents and multimedia files are accessible from a single application. As a Showpad alternative, Crescendo offers similar functionality, but works faster and is easier to use, especially for the less tech savvy.
Your sales team no longer needs to search through their emails, desktop folders or Sharepoint sites. Crescendo is their one-stop-shop for all content.
Use your existing Cloud Storage
No file uploads or data migration.
Most sales enablement solutions, like Veelo, BigtinCan and other Showpad alternatives require that you upload content to their servers before it can be distributed to your sales team.
Crescendo takes a different approach. Your content stays in the cloud storage solution that your organization already uses: Sharepoint, Google Drive, Salesforce, OneDrive or Box.
The content curator (usually in Marketing) will simply tag an entire folder structure that should be available in Crescendo and then share it (usually in read only mode) with the content consumers (usually Sales team).
A Sales team will download Crescendo and securely log in with their credentials (Google, Sharepoint, etc) to access those documents. Crescendo does not access logins or passwords.
Just tag and share your content.
Crescendo relies on your existing Cloud Storage solution as a content source, but also as an authentication and file access management provider. Via Crescendo, users only access files that they have access to in the Cloud Storage platform.
Therefore, rollout is super fast. Just tag and share relevant folders in the cloud storage platform and then have users log into Crescendo.
Compared to other Showpad alternatives like ClearSlide, Mediafly or Bigtincan, where a rollout can take months and usually requires help from an IT department, Crescendo is quicker and gets your team working efficiently much sooner.
Content delivery and offline access.
Never let your Sales team present outdated content again.
When Crescendo connects to the internet, it regularly checks your cloud storage folders for new or updated files. The changes in content are synchronized and downloaded to the device to stay available to you when there is no internet connectivity. This way, unlike many web-based Showpad alternatives, Crescendo allows you to access content, present, share and annotate your documents both online and offline.
Your Sales team will never use an outdated version of a product catalogue, pricelist or technical documentation again.
Ultrafast full text search.
Find the exact phrase inside of your document in an instant
One of the problems with other Showpad alternatives is the limited search functionality. Oftentimes it requires that you manually tag your content with search keywords or phrases. It won’t search for keywords inside your documents and won’t even work when your device is offline.
Crescendo is different. All files are locally indexed on the device. Not only can you find a file name, but you can also find the specific page where the search phase appears. All in a split second!
Measure content and app usage.
Analytics metrics you actually need
The important reason to employ a sales enablement solution is to improve content and sales techniques based on metrics. As a Showpad competitor, Crescendo provides content owners with an Analytics module.
Crescendo Analytics provides the most important metrics. It won’t overwhelm you with too many statistics, charts and other data that isn’t relevant. All data can be exported with one click.
Mobile Sales Teams
Sales professionals who meet prospects and clients on the road use Crescendo as a Showpad alternative. Their content is always available within one app – both online and offline.
The content curators in marketing department effortlessly distribute sales content to the sales teams and monitor how it is used.
Marketing and Content Creation Agencies
Building software in-house isn’t always the best choice. Marketing and creative agencies resell Crescendo to their clients as a sales presentation app and a very cost efficient Showpad alternative.
Crescendo becomes part of their service offering. It’s a win-win scenario.
Educational Institutions and HR Departments
Crescendo is an elegant and reliable tool to present, share content, gather feedback and collaborate on your documents.
It makes Crescendo a perfect fit for many organizations where trainings, presentations and employee onboarding are conducted on a regular basis.
