During this global pandemic, we are forced to stay at home, as businesses are now compelled to manage their operations remotely. In addition to that, the world of business has faced many challenges that have hampered performance and growth. The last one year has helped us realize the power of digitalization as, without video conferencing solutions or other essential business tools, survival would have been impossible. It has especially been a tough time for the 60+ million SMBs of India, leaving them with no choice but to adopt digital solutions to keep their business alive.
The set-up of a promising SaaS start-up
Arpit Khandelwal and Ankit Kumar Agrawal, two smart business owners, hypothesized the situation before the dust settled. Their journey began in January 2020 when they founded NeoDove to help businesses automate their sales process and enhance their customer engagement. NeoBiz, a free sales management app developed by this start-up, came into existence in June 2021 and aims to help micro, small and medium enterprises thrive in this new working environment by strengthening their sales engagement.
With the plan to be present across the tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3 cities of India, they have already managed to raise 1.5 million dollars in seed funding led by India Quotient. One of their key advantages is their easy-to-use app. It can be utilized by anyone without any hassle to experience a significant boost in their sales performance. From micro-businesses to mid-sized businesses, everyone can make use of this simple yet powerful app.
Why would businesses prefer the NeoBiz sales management app?
With today’s advancement in technology, a lot of tools are available for businesses to improve their day-to-day processes. Sales management is one of the most critical processes that need to be transformed using the right tool, and NeoBiz is crafted just for that – to make sales management simpler and easier.
From segregating the critical business data under different customized tags to managing customer information and gathering them in one place, setting reminders to complete crucial tasks on time, scheduling messages, communicating with potential customers on their preferred channel and language, helping users track their business performance, NeoBiz does everything that someone can possibly imagine to boost a sales process. In short, it is a one-stop solution for any business to scale their growth.
Helping businesses in every possible way
The story doesn’t end here. Apart from performing such crucial tasks, this app has planned to include other incredible features that will efficiently help with team management and make it easy to integrate with robust digital platforms like Facebook Ads or Google Ads to consolidate all the leads in a single place. Furthermore, integration with telephonic services will also be available on NeoBiz. With these, NeoBiz will slowly be able to revolutionize and reshape the whole process of sales management.
A business that changed the meaning of success
According to the founders Arpit and Ankit, success doesn’t mean earning more money, but delivering value to our clients. They strive to help people and businesses achieve their goals. All they want is to create a positive impact on millions of businesses. This is the real definition of success to them.
