Reference managers surveyed in 2015 – as in previous years – said they have little knowledge of the extent to which referencing activities helped close deals. In fact, only about 17% of respondents in 2015 were able to say they knew the impact of referencing activities on the value of sales contracts. Only 7% even knew the percentage of all bids in which references were used.
