Facebook122Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Port of OlympiaThe Port of Olympia Commission has approved a proposal to rename its East Bay Trail and NorthPoint Park in honor of the late Billy Frank Jr., in partnership with the Squaxin Island Tribe and the Frank Family. After receiving a petition to rename a portion of Marine Drive in honor of the local leader, Port staff consulted with the family and conducted a broader public review process to determine how best to proceed. This dialogue resulted in a modified proposal to celebrate the life and messages of Frank by directly linking them to the Puget Sound.The Port plans on renaming its East Bay Trail and NorthPoint Park in honor of the late Billy Frank Jr. Photo courtesy: Port of OlympiaAs currently envisioned, several educational kiosks and interpretive signs would be installed along the trail and in the park terminus, each highlighting a unique aspect of Frank, the Squaxin Island Tribe and the life-cycle of salmon. Signage would also be added to provide education about the native plants already lining the trail, and to commemorate two previous Canoe Landings (Squaxin, 2012 and Nisqually, 2016).The full project is estimated to cost approximately $80,000. The Port Commission has agreed to provide up to $25,000 to support development and implementation costs, while the Squaxin Island Tribe and Salmon Defense will secure the remaining funds. A Dedication and Blessing Ceremony will take place on March 9 (Billy Frank Jr’s birthday) and project construction will begin shortly thereafter.“This is a great opportunity to educate people on the History of Billy Frank Jr. He spent his life working to protect the environment and salmon. My Dad realized, after being arrested over 50 times for exercising his Treaty Right, that we all need to come together for the health of the salmon and Puget Sound,” stated Willie Frank.The plan includes several educational kiosks and interpretive signs. Photo courtesy: Port of OlympiaSquaxin Island Tribe Chairman Arnold Cooper stated, “The Squaxin Island Tribe is honored to be working with the Port of Olympia and the Frank family on the dedication of the Billy Frank Jr. Trail and Park. This is a great opportunity to honor Billy’s legacy while educating the community on our history and culture.”For information about the waterfront project including presentations, and information on project public outreach and participation, please visit the Port’s website at www.portolympia.com.

Brad AndersonEditor In Chief at ReadWrite How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Related Posts Over the past couple years, the machine learning niche has exploded into the mainstream. Startups have popped up left and right to show off their innovative new tools, and Google — the tech giant above all tech giants — now claims to be a machine learning company.This sudden spike in AI interest is not as surprising as it might seem. People have wanted smart robots since the earliest days of sci-fi. Thanks to strides in natural language processing and other tech advances, the long-awaited arrival of machine learning is finally here.For sales processes, machine learning is a dream come true. More than 40 percent of salespeople find prospecting leads to be the hardest part of the job, with 22 percent feeling that qualifying those leads is even harder. Now, AI can sift through prospects using advanced analytics to discover which ones are the most likely to convert, then spit out a list of the best leads in seconds. No more spending two-thirds of the day entering data and researching leads — with machines on the case, salespeople can spend their time talking to prospects and closing deals.Not all sales tools are created equal, though. The successful sales teams of the future will lean on these to win more deals: Personalized mobile appsPlenty of sales fall through due to issues beyond the salesperson’s control, and those issues are often a result of the company’s product or service. A service that is unclear in its execution — no matter how valuable that service may be — can cause potential buyers to back out quickly, leaving the salesperson in the lurch.However, if the service is presented in a sleek and well-executed format that is easily accessible during a sales call, salespeople will be free to work their magic without restraint. When building a personalized app for the donor registration organization DKMS, the software development team at Clevertech focused on simplifying and streamlining the original system to help retain users. Its sophisticated mobile solution increased user retention by 60 percent and significantly improved awareness and understanding of DKMS’s service with the simplicity of a cleaner presentation.Salespeople are only as strong as the product or service they’re looking to sell. By arming them with an easy-to-navigate and easy-to-transport display, companies can provide salespeople with everything they need to educate prospective clients on the value of what they provide. Smart searchAI-enabled searches cut through the mire of unqualified leads to pick out the individuals and companies best matched to the seller’s product or service. If there is one machine learning tool that every company needs, it’s this one.Node, an AI-powered discovery engine, is going all-in on sales enablement. The company recently announced $5 million in new funding and brought in two top AI researchers to develop its latest product.“AI has incredible potential in sales,” says Greg McBeth, head of revenue at Node. “New tools allow companies to discover valuable customer information that they would otherwise miss, then act on that information at the right time with the right message.” ChatbotsModern consumers prefer to do most product research on their own. They use smartphones to compare prices, check social media for reviews, and read articles about the pros and cons of each choice. By the time they reach out to a salesperson, they are almost ready to close. In B2B sales, the process is longer, but the premise is the same: Online research has replaced the old-school necessity of verbal description in sales.Chatbots guide website visitors to complete tasks that get them closer to closing. They can provide information about local stores, set up appointments to speak with salespeople, and answer questions about products and services. The best ones embody the personalities of the brands behind them, giving would-be customers a more personalized experience.Cloud solutionsIt’s 2018, and the office is now mobile. Salespeople on the go should not be isolated from their tools and resources. “Frustrated customers are beating up your salespeople because your sales teams are out there all on their own,” explains Phil Rainsberger, director of strategy and customer experience at Tier 1. “They don’t have answers to customers’ questions, they don’t have up-to-the-second information, they’re disconnected from your company’s systems, and as a result they’re unable to provide real-time information and make decisions that every type of business and customer is beginning to demand.”Modern cloud solutions allow sales teams to access information from anywhere, empowering them to make faster decisions and capitalize on opportunities in the field. Not only do cloud solutions speed up the sales process, but they also lower the budget hit from slower, more expensive information systems.Salespeople from cloud-powered companies can do in one meeting what those from other companies do in several, reducing the number of opportunities for deals to get away.Sales AccelerationCRM’s are the anchor to any sales environment. However, common complaints from sales reps is that their CRM is too clunky and slows them down. But the information contained within is a vital system of record. Companies that have a 360 degree view of their core customers have a competitive advantage.Reduce the weight of a CRM by adding additional products to your technology stack. This will reduce the daunting nature of a CRM, further driving adoption and making your CRM investment more valuable.Sales teams should consider investing in sales acceleration software that integrates with their CRM, improving sales productivity. As you explore sales acceleration solutions, make sure they’re designed for your specific (inside or outside) sales strategy.Sales teams won’t go away anytime soon, but their tool kits are expanding rapidly. The companies with the best sales results in the future will be the ones that leverage the full power of their technological advantages. These four technologies provide a starting point, but truly tech-centered sellers should keep up with the latest advancements to stay ahead of their industries.
