Why Read This Report

Lawson Software's analyst relations (AR) team is succeeding where most teams fail; it's delivering quantifiable, direct sales benefits. With two-thirds of its sales cycles affected by industry analysts, it's vital for Lawson to know which analysts are influencing each prospect and for it to have repeatable sales support mechanisms in place to influence deal outcomes. Lawson's AR generates new sales opportunities, as well, and it achieves all this in spite of changing business priorities that alter AR's focus each year.
