Artesian delivers commercially valuable insights that change the way businesses engage with customers, for better, forever.
Who makes the changes? Get to know™ Companies
Company headlines only tell part of the story.
Artesian’s social intelligence platform delivers crystal clear focus, without the noise – the insight you need to understand the businesses you want to engage with.
Valuable, usable and tailored not just to your company, but to you personally.
Traditional B2B sales operations are being disrupted because smarter, empowered and socially engaged customers expect more. They expect you to know about them and what is happening in their world.
Smart businesses are already listening to customers more closely, which is a good start. However, the smartest B2B sales teams are finding ways to proactively leverage Internet based insights (from web and social media) about ‘companies’, ‘markets’ and ‘people’ to seamlessly connect this insight into Sales and Business Development cycles.
With the Artesian Social Intelligence Platform B2B enterprises can commercially leverage valuable web based insights, and in turn change the way they engage with customers, with dramatic results.
We founded Artesian to help change the way businesses engage customers, for the better, forever. Three core values drive our actions and decision making.
We want to change things, we understand people and we deliver
We Want To Change Things
We want to help people and businesses truly engage, to help develop stronger relationships and intimacy. As a result we are by nature redefining the roles of people in contemporary business. Rather than having to rely on static data, we provide key stakeholders in social businesses and social brands with insight that is actually useful and usable, right now.
We Understand People
We know what business people need to make their roles more effective. We think we are the best around at helping them find and close bigger deals faster. But the foundation we establish is also critical - we help them to truly listen to their customers and respond to them appropriately; to engage large-scale enterprises and keep an eye on competitors.
The insight we surface directly drives revenue growth for our customers. A bold claim, but one we can support by showcasing the initiatives we work on with our customers. Our customers rely on us and we’re alert to their needs - and ensure they are met.
Our vision is to build the World’s leading Social Intelligence Platform.
