    • What is the value at each stage of the buyer journey starting with value driven discovery?
  • Customer Everboarding Experience
    • Consumer B2C try before you buy has made its way into B2B
    • Limited land deal to prove value and understand vendor experience
    • Expand deal is typically the profitable business, before that deal is a loss
