In the initial years like all cloud solution, it faced a lot of resistance from large organizations, they entered the market by enabling the small & medium business owner with contact center solution, who cannot afford costly primitive contact center solution.

Selling to Indian SMEs

The other day, I saw a post from one of our competitors on how they never visit a customer and do the sale on the phone or over email. In fact they were wiling to let go of a customer if the customer insisted on a visit. Well, to each his own. But being a bootstrapped company, we cannot afford that pleasure. For us, customer is king and if he wants us to visit him to close the deal, we will gladly do that. I can write about how cool it is to sell over the phone and give some anecdotes on how quickly we closed some deals on the phone using some innovative techniques. They make for good stories. Stories that we want to listen. Stories that VCs want to listen. Nobody wants to listen to the story of the hard working sales guy, who made 4 visits to a single customer across the town through the traffic in peak hour. But thats the story that is getting us the money. And we live that story everyday. That is exactly the reason we have a sales team in almost 10 locations across India.
