Artificial intelligence. Machine learning. Bots. Messaging. Drones.

I could keep going, but I’ll spare you.

In“Startupland” we’re surrounded by these buzzwords. Some are very close to having a huge impact on our personal lives, while others are farther out than they seem

The good news is, the promise of these technologies is starting to come to life within an increasing number of solutions we use at work.

AI is scheduling our meetings. Messaging has taken over the workplace. Drones are...ok, drones haven’t invaded our offices just yet but would you be surprised if they did soon enough?

I mean I heard there's been some robot sitings at recent tech conferences so it's not that far fetched...


At Troops, we are all about making the lives of sales teams better. So, we searched high and low for breakout sales startups that are using new technologies to change the game for sales teams…

We found a few keepers and decided to put together a little slideshare to document a few of the companies we’re excited about.
