and So we're performing there, we're we feel well happy about that. like


comes of Your the line Van Capital. Craig-Hallum Jeff of next question Rhee from

Jeffrey Van Rhee

me. for several So

'XX? you did of promoter, to think because just about Is for that comment be do you the kept the trend Where sales Is have you the you start more upcoming on a acquisitions? likely a me, that how on second a just with heads And And that than touched an little pattern, you update will? then Just normal. continue color. a if net do few more or you you now? stand

these measurements. You take

absolute sort line I'm just we said that measure. leadership this more improvements, a the what clarity an of looks trajectory don't But like of just you're on more quadrant. if You on in have little curious the directional magnitude what

John McDonald


terms doesn't single but under inside include of the or the high up sales still to actually, X capacity field last it's the beginning our field correction Total headcount salespeople, of field low -- heads digits. But doesn't and headcount and grow to digits, double now, so motion, terms include X in really question, salespeople, In just managers. part that. we'll is doesn't inside enterprise that. That summer, on first up from XX, just now of at of sales that was now, over continue account our XX, the what our include

of NPS And contribution acquired operate Tim to more because the model sales address holding hitting with one other UplandOne future that to we product. scores, we at while on capacity sales terms let Yes, margin able hold really will In capacity the still on scale, starting of let to the be on additional to our are acquisitions goals it. point. me for

So that's very positive development. a

And forward. so for to look yes, more do of going that us

NPS On part, Tim can question. the address your

Timothy Mattox

the It's feedback Yes, the and from you the on Jeff, itself. -- Net it Promoter get goes score beyond score. it really Score, really

of Xs with Upland very you're which six who really delighted of it, and would those doing. who They XX, through aren't are with doing. to familiar is means on and phone simple you promoters. for question, you friends you're don't they're recommend That like detractors. are colleagues? Scale So XXs X your to what the Zero are it's what a

and the advocate so will. Xs zero neutral, are And And you X if against would actively marketplace. in you the

perfume subtract this of number you divide take the you, total detractors of and respondents, tell So gets number pig ways of your by the that And to of promoters, I'll you Net lots the in there's thing. Score. Promoter number the

witness, Reichheld's that You'll came that in Bain's. Fred the way in the we've leads out such really purest and approach this strict survey using and methodology a taken of the do

So mundane our folks that that roadmaps, receive We are We as take our those that invoicing and with on well that, down at input the upsetting activities delight customers something interacting product that and And chip certainly able matter much trending sort that's us place use this at been reinforce done organized things as compare as beauty that the as the industries up. to trying methodology, that, we've improvement that's really as feedback to And in the take dimension doubling culture survey. quite the around across we as And doesn't trend have continuous that of approach. into the we're away spartan common those we that number we have feedback that customers. both as of as we've that the using on Upland. well from our here into important. and collections me, processes as very to absolute input and

operating platform use activities that don't So further we weed frankly, UplandOne and, to our that our improve out customers. matter to

we're and that's more that on. how So it, future, improvements you'll without more in hear use to operations around referring working NPS, but we about that the typically,

Jeffrey Van Rhee

I guess, Okay. And last just the me. for

prior keep quarter importantly, in maybe, this leaps Just and an the here then basket the impact if obviously, you more point, made to Jack, the more would. and you've organic? model couple of target in does comment, organic of of as directionally and that to thinking just sort about So update, you at How years last it maybe on your if able margins sales questions, tremendous are just that how does in your organic? in that resources, impact close
