InsideSales.com names new CEO

Lehi-based InsideSales.com, an AI sales platform powered by collective intelligence, announced Thursday that Chris Harrington has been appointed chief executive officer, effective immediately.

Harrington was previously the COO of InsideSales.com. He succeeds former CEO and founder of InsideSales.com, Dave Elkington, who will remain with the company as chairman of the board.

“As InsideSales.com continued to grow and my vision of creating a software company that enables the largest enterprise companies in the world to service their customers from lead to renewal became a reality, I had always planned to find a leader with the unique skills and abilities to take the company to the next level into that market,” Elkington said. “This past year I was fortunate enough to work alongside Chris. He’s the ideal leader to enable us to fully capitalize on the massive market potential we’ve unlocked with our enterprise solutions.”

InsideSales.com closed its 2019 fiscal year having grown its platform data to over 75 million companies with more than 204 million individual profiles, according to a press release. A core component of that growth is the success of Playbooks, the company’s AI-based sales prospect and prioritization solution. It’s the fastest growing product since its marketing introduction and now accounts for over one third of total product revenue, the press release states.

“This market has heated up in the last two years, with enterprise companies trying to solve for an increasingly challenging sales environment,” Harrington said. “I joined InsideSales.com because we have the opportunity to build an unrivaled platform and lead in this space. The revenue uplift we drive for enterprise customers is unparalleled.”

Before joining InsideSales.com, Harrington worked for digital sales and marketing companies Omniture, Adobe and Domo.

‘Custom tagging’ from FileShadow

FileShadow users can now organize their files and photos stored by using custom search tags, a capability introduced by Provo-based FileShadow, Inc. this week.

According to a press release, users can select as many files as they want to adjust and add new tags, or edit and remove any auto-generated tags that aren’t relevant.

“One of the built-in features of FileShadow is an extensible metadata store. We’ve enhanced the system by allowing user editing of the metadata tags,” Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow, said. “With FileShadow, customers can collect all of their content, and fine-tune the metadata tags so they can efficiently locate their files.”

When files are copied into the FileShadow vault, searchable metadata is automatically generated for each file, including location, optical character recognition of PDFs ad machine learning-generated tags for images, allowing users to find files quickly. The automated tagging feature allows users to quickly find images related to their search term, but the new custom tagging will allow users to adjust the terms associated with their files.
