I'm not sure what you're asking exactly but if you're asking if certain SaaS products are meant for specific industries then yeah for sure. The company I work for sells a lead gen platform that can only really be used for anyone that is generating inbound web and call traffic. Other than that there's no real use case

Yes thatโ€™s what I meant, also rephrased my question. I especially mean certain products which can actually be used in all industries however one industry could be more adoptive than another.

Well to answer the re-phrased, then yes. It's better to become an expert in one vertical than to be a generalist imo

This entirely depends on the product you are selling. So in some cases yes, some cases no

Yes - I believe certain verticals are prone to adopt certain SaaS softwares over other verticals

Sales Managers often assist AEs in closing sales (sitting in on demos, providing support in pricing calls etc). What can SDR Managers do to provide similar support?
