My name is Marko, I’m CEO and co-founder of Salespod.Salespod is a real time, task focused sales force automation tool for smartphones and tablets.
Meet Joe. Joe is a sales rep.When he visits a client he is cut off from the office.
He has to KNOW a ton of information, like:- exact pricing- inventory levels- previous orders- outstanding debt- upsale opportunities
Besides, he needs to CAPTURE information like:- Contact details- Purchase orders- Price scans- Work orders- Time sheets, or- Product positioning
All Joe has is a CELL PHONE and PAPER.
Now, let’s meet Chris, Joe’s sales manager. He sits in the office.
Chris needs to manage all the incoming documents from the sales team, such as all the fax orders; which always have mistakes, double entries or legibility problems.
He is stuck on the phone with his reps all day dealing with the order status, inventory levels and all sorts of information.This should all be automated.
So, years ago people started building CRM and sales force automation solutions.But, those traditional systems are nothing more than a database of the searchable information. Well, that’s NOT how real people work!
My co-founder and I, we were building database oriented CRM’s and SFA’s for nine years, but we saw over and over again there is a HUGE GAP between software and real life business actions and tasks.
So, let me introduce our new product – Salespod.Salespod was built to reflect how people work in real life.It’s is about REALACTIONS in REAL TIME!
With Salespod, we are converting managers from bureaucrats to informed coaches. They see real time, live coverage of their reps.And now field reps have a single, comprehensive tool to accomplish their goals.
Salespod is task focused SFA providing real time collaboration.It includes order management, custom mobile forms, work orders, messaging, billboards, photos, GPS tracking, and more.
It’smade of two parts: web app for the managers in the office, and the mobile app for reps.
This is how it looks like.(1 minute video)
Salespod can be a standalone solution or it can be integrated with company’s existing ERP or CRM system. We have existing API and integrate with a number of ERP’s and CRM’s.
We have 4 subscription plans in the range from 5 to 125 dollars.
We serve small and medium size businesses as well as large companies like T-Mobile in Europe.We are going to market by leveraging existing distribution networkslike business application marketplaces, telecoms or vendors of mobile equipment.
It took us 3 years to build a solution the way it is today. During that time we were in private beta with the mentioned customers.4 months ago we decided to make Salespod public. We received angel investment and we are already making profit.At the moment we are working on integration of Salespod with key business marketplaces and establishing distribution partnerships.
This is us, the founders. Salespod is our third startup.We are building business apps for twelve years now and Salespod is our second SFA system.
Our angel investors and the team.
So, in short:Salespod is a real time, task oriented SFA, standalone or integrated with clients’ ERP or CRM.Thank you!
