What is Seismic? 

Seismic is a Sales Enablement platform built to:

  • Help sellers find, share, and track the marketing content they provide to customers and prospects, 

  • Help marketers manage all marketing content in one place, as well as gain insights into the performance of the content.

The integration with Lessonly allows companies to automatically bring Lessonly content into the Seismic platform.

Sales enablement leaders can share and promote Lessonly lessons within Seismic, similar to other pieces of content.

With this integration companies can house all their training and marketing enablement content in one platform. This makes it easier, and more streamlined for sellers to locate what they're looking for.


What does the Seismic integration do?

The Lessonly <> Seismic integration brings marketing content and training together in a unified experience within the Seismic platform.

The integration includes:

  • Unified UI: Use all the features of Lessonly from within Seismic

  • Consolidated Insights: View integrated analytics produced from the combination of Lessonly reporting data and Seismic LiveInsights

  • Global Search: Search for both Seismic and Lessonly content simultaneously using a single search within Seismic

  • Related Training: Quickly and easily link Lessonly lessons and paths to a piece of Seismic content. Related Training is prominently featured to the seller when they view the Seismic content within DocCenter.

Important Note

All four components can be enabled or disabled individually within the setup process, as desired.

All together - with a unified UI, consolidated insights, a global search experience, and related training the Lessonly <> Seismic integration simplifies and streamlines the entire enablement experience.

  • On the Instructions card next to another piece of Seismic content

  • In Global Search results
