The #1 Sales Management Platform

We're on a mission to help managers make decisions about their teams based on data, not intuition

People don't quit their jobs, they quit their managers.

Everyone has had a manager that makes them not want to go to work. Everyone
has had a manager who regularly forces their team to chase their tail doing meaningless work.
Why? Because most managers operate their teams blindly, or based on previous experience. Today’s
managers are not hiring, coaching and promoting their reps based on data. Instead, they make
decisions based on their gut and what has worked well in the past. That’s because they either
lack the data to make better decisions, or the knowledge of how to use it.

At People.ai we’re reimagining how managers make decisions by allowing them
to reach conclusions based on hard data. We started with sales teams because they’ve been a
notorious black box. No manager today can definitively say what makes a “top performer” better
than a “low performer.” People.ai is solving that by making sales transparent and building the
world’s first AI for managing sales teams.
