“My App Stack” is a new series where we dig in with top CMOs, CROs, CTOs and CEOs on just what apps they’re really using to run their business. I always learn a lot from these — they are in essence a best practices list from each leader. Last week we had a great one with Robby Allen, Chief Revenue Officer at AgentSync, check it out here.
This week we have Chandar Pattabhiram, CMO at Coupa!
#1. What’s your core stack of apps today?
I’m using Marketo (Nurturing, Scoring), DemandBase (Intent, Targeting, CTV, Orchestration, Sales Insights), Intellimize (Dynamic Personalization, Mutli-variate Testing), Rollworks (Retargeting), Hushly (Lead Conversion on Website Exit), Lean Data (Lead-to-Contact), Sendoso (ABM Gift Sending), Conductor/SEM Rush (Organic Search KW Research, Competitive Research), LinkedIn (Paid Social), Google Ads (Paid Search, Video, Gmail Ads), Looker (Organic & Ad Analytics), Tableau (Funnel Analytics).
#2. What’s the number one top new app you’ve added the past year?
CTV capability – has given us good returns in retargeting website traffic.
#3. Other than your own, what app would you never let anyone take away from you no matter what:
Marketo – It is essential for Setting Up Sales and ADRs to Win when the buyers have shown enough engagement to demonstrate that they are getting ready to buy.
#4. What’s your top “undiscovered gem” — an app you love but others may not have heard of?
Hushly – really has helped our website conversions.
