Your Sales and Marketing Teams CAN Align on Content

"Our Reps Are Unprepared for Today's Selling!"

Does this sound like your situation? If your reps can't find your sales content, they're not going to be effective. Even if they can find it... if they don't know how and when to use it, they're still not going to be effective.
