It’s 11pm. You’re in bed, about to fall asleep. All of a sudden, you realize you forgot to grab the side dish for tomorrow’s dinner with the in-laws—and you’re hosting. Between meetings and picking up the dog from daycare, your “tomorrow” is fully booked. Luckily, it’s 2021 and you can just open your favorite grocery app and get your forgotten item delivered, at a time of your choice. Dinner is saved.

It’s encompassing and strategic, and that’s part of the reason this category has been largely misunderstood for a long time. Sales enablement apps and technology are geared to make selling more efficient at a time when there are so many ways for your operation to be, well, the exact opposite.
