By Caroline Proctor, CMO, justenough on 25th July 2016
"I recently took Martec’s “Building the Business Case and ROI” eLearning course and found it very informative and helpful. The information is presented in a very organized, straightforward and clear manner. Martec shows you how to build a solid ROI model using commonly available financial statements and metrics. ROI estimates are often requested by prospects during sales cycles and what we took away from the training will enable us to help prospects justify investments and accelerate sales cycles."
