HubSpot’s Product Expansion

During the quarter, HubSpot announced the launch of Operations Hub, a service that helps operations professionals become strategic drivers of revenue and growth. The service separates silos of data between functional business units and gives the foundation for revenue operations teams so that they are able to work across a single source. The service allows customers to connect their tech stack, clean the data, and automate processes.

HubSpot believes that revenue operations professionals are key decision-makers for CRM. The launch of Operations Hub expands its offerings to this group, making it easier for companies to build their customer experience on the HubSpot CRM platform. Within the first 10 days of the launch more than 500 customers had signed up for Operations Hub. The company believes that this service will help expand HubSpot’s role in becoming the CRM platform of choice for companies.
