INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – January 30, 2013 – Corporate Visions, Inc., the leading sales and marketing messaging company, today announced milestones from a successful 2012 fiscal year, including an increase of 31 percent revenue growth following record growth in 2011.

In addition, the company also reported a 42 percent increase in bookings, which was fueled by substantial new customer wins from around the globe.
“Our record revenue growth this year further supports the need for the services we provide – the ability to develop differentiated messaging, deploy unique tools that get used in the field and deliver training to reinforce the skills salespeople need to close more deals,” said Corporate Visions CEO Joe Terry. “This year, we are helping our clients learn how to harness the power of visual storytelling, and in particular, how to leverage whiteboarding techniques as a way to further differentiate themselves from the competition.”
