The company

Scality, a French deep-tech company, helps its customers benefit from the advantages of the cloud – agility, reliability and cost – while remaining in control of their data. The company offers a file and object storage software solution that supports deployments of any size, enabling organizations have both cloud-based and on-premises storage, simply.

The challenge

Suxeed assisted with the launch of Scality’s new SaaS software, ARTESCA, an innovative new software that redefines object storage for the new era of cloud native, allowing companies to optimize their private cloud storage. The set goals were to create a forecast pipeline to create visibility on the acquisition and to launch the new mid-market product ARTESCA in France and the UK.

The solution

In order to achieve these goals, we implemented dedicated go-to-market, targeting and evaluation strategies. To build these strategies, we translated Scality’s vision into a clear conquest strategy and a powerful sales message that will resonate with their target. 

We then built the “sales playbook”, summarizing all the information about Scality and the main selling points. It contains custom email templates and sequences, call scripts, best answers to prospect objections and a qualification script to help discover needs. 

This playbook is given to the BDR. With years of experience in B2B phone hunting, they love their work and are driven by their determination and their desire to excel. Full-time dedicated to Scality and educated on the market, they quickly mastered the product and adopted an expert approach. With the help of the best prospecting softwares and the playbook, they were able to implement the strategy developed earlier without wasting time, and make several hundred calls a day for more results.

In order to allow BDR to stay focused on the calls, we have generated their leads, managed their email sequences and automated repetitive tasks. We have created a list of qualified leads in agreement with the criteria established upstream with Scality, and enriched it with phone contacts, emails, and other important data.
