Liz Schmittgens is the director of solutions consulting at Virgin Pulse. Her mission is to simplify the complexity of their product in a way that shows clear value and positive impact on members, patients, employers and payers. She also aims to empower the sales team to weave compelling stories that resonate with clients using these demos.
Complex Product Demonstrations and Limited Timing
Relaying the value of Virgin Pulse and showcasing its extensive set of products and services in a meaningful way, while also allowing for interactivity, can be challenging. With only 60 minutes in some cases, team members are often short on time when it comes to the demo portion of the presentation. This results in select functionality - and perhaps functionality that may be important to the buyer - being left out of the demo.
Live Demo Account Switching
Demonstrating different member journeys in live demos can often require account switching. This process adds complexity and hinders a seamless demonstration for the solutions consulting team. Showing too many member journeys in one live demo has the potential to overwhelm buyers who either are new to a platform like Virgin Pulse or see their employee population as not being tech-savvy or easily overwhelmed.
Why Choose SmartCue?
Faced with these challenges, the Virgin Pulse team was looking for a solution to help them simplify the demo creation process, while also enabling sales teams to be more self-sufficient and putting the magic of Virgin Pulse's solutions right in the hands of prospects. With SmartCue, the Virgin Pulse team found its silver bullet! Let's break down how the Virgin Pulse team evaluated SmartCue and decided it was the right fit for them.
Demo Magic with SmartCue
SmartCue made demo creation a piece of cake. The Virgin Pulse marketing and solution consulting teams were creating tailored demos in week one of implementing SmartCue, without any involvement from the engineering teams. This time-to-value was immense for the teams!

Demo Personalization Fun
Liz and the Virgin Pulse team wanted to give each demo a personality that would resonate with their prospects and buyers while still incorporating Virgin Pulse's powerful brand.

Multi-Threaded Member Experiences
Virgin Pulse's key value proposition is that they provide a personalized approach to health - whether it’s a patient looking for care or a member looking to utilize benefits through their employer or insurance provider. But user interactions across the health and wellbeing journey can be complex and showcasing this value proposition in a clear and concise way is a challenge. With SmartCue, this became a breeze.
