How HubSpot helped

During his search for a better way to accurately track ROI on marketing spend, Mark Pendleton, Director of Product Marketing at NEC, turned to HubSpot. He found that the automated HubSpot system simplifies lead and campaign tracking and makes reporting more effective than manual tracking systems. HubSpot’s Lead Intelligence tool helped sales and marketing quickly develop a clear definition of what constituted a qualified lead. Features such as HubSpot's Landing Pages tool give Mark a mechanism to A/B test pages himself, without having to depend on the IT team. Additionally, lead nurturing enables the team to focus on marketing initiatives that resonate with their target audience and brings better results.
