Strategic Response Management becoming the next “must-have,” go-to-market SaaS solution for growth-oriented companies.

 Responsive, the leader in Strategic Response Management software (SRM), today announced the company has enabled customers to respond to more than $500 billion in opportunities via its Responsive Platform. Strategic Response Management is rapidly becoming the next “must-have,” go-to-market SaaS solution as growth-oriented companies endeavor to put their best foot forward when responding to a growing number of deal-impacting information requests including RFPs (requests for proposals), RFIs (requests for information), security questionnaires and more.

“Out of 11,000 or so go-to-market solutions available on the market today, there are only a handful that materially impact customers’ business,” said Aragon Research CEO Jim Lundy. “Solutions such as the Responsive Platform, equipped with AI-powered Strategic Response Management capabilities, streamline labor-intensive and error-prone tasks, catering to revenue-generating businesses of all sizes.”

Today, Responsive has close to 2,000 customers of all sizes, across various industries and geographies.
