Plano, TX (April 14, 2015) — VanillaSoft, an award-winning provider of lead management software for inside sales and sales by phone activities, is pleased to announce that David Hood, CEO, has been selected as a speaker for the upcoming 2015 AA-ISP Leadership Summit. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, on April 21 – 22. VanillaSoft is a Gold Sponsor of this year’s event that brings together an international audience of inside sales leaders.

Hood commented on the upcoming speaking engagement, “I am excited to share ‘The Power of Queue: Driving Inside Sales Momentum and Performance,’ which includes new research from a University of Ottawa study about how queue-based inside sales systems outperform list-based systems. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share how inside sales software with a queue-based architecture drives key performance indicators such as speed-to-lead, lead prioritization, follow up, data gathering, and calling productivity. I will be highlighting how the power of the queue helped one organization go from a start-up to a member of The 2014 Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list.”

Larry Reeves, CEO of AA-ISP added, “AA-ISP is pleased to welcome David Hood as a speaker at the 2015 AA-ISP Leadership Summit. His session promises to be informative for those seeking ways to make their inside sales process more productive and efficient. We also thank VanillaSoft for its continued sponsorship of AA-ISP events.”
