I am pleased to announce that Autoklose has joined the VanillaSoft family. I hope you’ll check out our announcement livestreaming right here👇 at 12:00 pm ET on October 20, 2020. 




It’s hard to believe that it has been 15 years since the first VanillaSoft product launched. What started as an idea for a SaaS product to drive high-quality telephone sales has grown over time into a full-fledged, multi-channel sales engagement platform used in over 15 countries.

The term sales engagement didn’t exist during the company’s first ten years, so we like to think that makes us the first sales engagement platform. However, we aren’t ones to rest on our laurels. We’re not just founders in the space. With the acquisition of Autoklose, we’re also the future of sales engagement.

One of my favorite things to say when a customer or prospect praises our product is to point out that if they like what VanillaSoft is today, they are going to love what it is tomorrow. We’re making this promise a reality by continuing to grow internal development and incorporating great teams and technology to deliver the best sales engagement tools available.

VanillaSoft and Autoklose: a Prospecting Powerhouse for Modern Sales Organizations

I encourage you to read our official announcement for all of the details – and don’t forget to watch our livestream launch event – but here is just a taste of what customers will be able to do as a result of the future integration of Autoklose into the VanillaSoft platform.

  • Nurture leads pre- and post-sales with email campaign and cadence tools
  • Engage with prospects via a single-channel or multi-channel approach depending on where the buyer is in the sales cycle
  • Access the Autoklose database of 40,000,000 validated B2B contacts

Sales leaders and sales reps alike will find that our integrated offering can help them supercharge their B2B sales process and make team members more productive.

What Else?

The acquisition of Autoklose isn’t just about bringing more terrific sales technology to VanillaSoft. In fact, we’ve already welcomed Autoklose employees to the VanillaSoft fold – contributing to our 34% increase in headcount since January 2020! Additionally, we have executives from the Autoklose team joining VanillaSoft in leadership roles: Shawn Finder (Sales GM); Marko Dinic (Fractional CTO); Vladan Djokic (Senior Dev Lead); and Vedran Rasic (Director, Marketing).

If you’re a current Autoklose customer, it’s great to meet you. 

I want to assure you that you’ll still have access to the solution that you and your sales team loves. The stand-alone Autoklose platform will remain available to customers and we will be working hard on future development to make it even better. It’s a great option for prospects who aren’t quite ready for – or do not require – a complete sales engagement platform like VanillaSoft. 

We look forward to working with the Autoklose team to harness the synergy of our two powerful sales engagement solutions.
