Buyer Enablement & Demo Automation Vendor Evaluation Criteria List (excel)

There's a lot of buyer enablement and demo automation vendors out there saying the same thing, yet it's no surprise that when you ask them to prove it or to demo customer examples with functionality those vendors claim to have ... crickets. silence. nothing.


Wherever there's a hot market with a lot of potential, bad players flock to try and cash out.


Most of these vendors are half baked solutions with only a fraction of the functionality they claim.


Or worse, their technology can't actually be used in the use-cases they claim it can be.

Buyer Enablement as a Holistic, Revenue Growth Strategy:

To make a long story short, as you evaluate various vendors, weed out fakers with the "Prove It Test" - simply put, when they make a claim that customers are using the technology for a use-case outside of the ones above, ask them to prove it with a customer example an success story. This will help you filter out fact from fiction.

After all, a bad purchase decision could set you and your company back more than one may be able to afford.
