Palo Alto, CA, June 15, 2022 – Gong, the Reality Platform™ leveraging artificial intelligence to transform go-to-market teams, today announced new partnerships with leading data and sales intelligence providers Apollo, Clearbit, and Cognism. Gong will integrate with the partners’ robust contact enrichment capabilities to provide sales professionals with powerful insights and autonomous actions to close more deals faster and with less effort. The new features are expected to be available this fall.
Additionally, available immediately, Gong customers* can receive exclusive discounts off the list price from each of the partners.
Apollo, Clearbit, and Cognism provide critical prospect and customer contact data that enable go-to-market teams to connect with confidence and increase the quality of conversations. Combining this data with Gong’s Reality Platform will provide sales professionals with hundreds of millions of verified contacts at their fingertips and the intelligence necessary to understand who should be contacted and when within the context of every deal.
“Communicating with the right people at the right time leads to more meaningful, high-value conversations,” said Gong President and COO Kelly Breslin Wright. “Integrating our platform with Apollo, Clearbit, and Cognism will empower revenue teams to connect quickly and confidently with the right influencers and decision-makers to unlock more revenue.”
When a sales rep is managing a deal in Gong, the Reality Platform will automatically identify optimal contacts at an organization that should be engaged to improve the likelihood of deal success. The platform will automatically notify the sales rep, surface contact information for the prospects, and, with one click, generate a personalized email based on the context of the deal for the sales professional to send. By bringing together Gong with these leaders, Gong will provide customers with significantly better coverage, increasing the hit rate of finding the most relevant and accurate contact.

“These partnerships will help companies increase the efficiency and productivity of their customer-facing teams,” said Breslin Wright. “Importantly, the partnerships will also deliver incredible value to our customers by providing exclusive savings during this time of economic uncertainty.”
