Unveil New Sales Opportunities

By coordinating your team’s sales data with industry activity behind the scenes, Zymewire helps you unveil personalized opportunities to grow your business. Much like having a personal assistant, Zymewire identifies highly-tailored sales opps for you so you don’t have to spend hours sifting through a mountain of information.

Get more meetings per sales trip

Visualize sales activity happening in a particular geographic region. Make more strategic outreach when planning sales trips, and stay aware of developments within your territory.
A Zymewire user in Singapore mentioned that prior to using the tool, he printed off paper maps of different Asian cities to help him decide where to best focus his efforts for upcoming sales trips. “Zymewire’s mapping feature saves me so much time!”

Illuminate the path to the decision maker

Zymewire leverages the power of your company's professional network to help you quickly get introductions to key decision makers. Contact search is baked right into the workflow to help you find missing contact information via direct integration with 3rd party contact databases.
When a longtime Zymewire user in the UK was asked whether the tool has been useful in securing more meetings at an upcoming conference, he responded "What you guys have done is f***ing brilliant. None of us are using [the conference’s] website to plan our meetings as they've got no order or utility to their website. If we didn't have Zymewire we'd be screwed."

"Our company tries to make sure we're coming into client conversations as informed as possible. It's painfully slow searching through life science databases and across the internet to try and prepare for calls or trips. Zymewire was an easy choice for us. My BD team doesn't waste time on performing extensive research. We're now spending that time on boosting our outbound calls and increasing our face-to-face meetings."

"Like many B2B organizations, we spend a lot of time looking for companies that would be a good fit for our services. Intelligence systems are available and help to a certain extent, but the information tends be outdated, hard to locate or not accurate. It's a great, easy to use tool and has surpassed all intelligence systems in our industry."
