The company also announced it has closed on the acquisition of iHance, Inc., a software company that helps sales teams close deals faster through comprehensive, patented email tracking and synching technologies.

More than 300 top customers, business partners and industry analysts gathered at the Montage Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, for the three-day IS Accelerate 2014, the sales acceleration event of the year, where the company also plans to highlight stunning new developments in Neuralytics™ -- the breakthrough, self-learning predictive analytics engine that underlies its entire sales acceleration platform.
