We’ve had things pretty good since the company’s inception 10 months ago. Startups can be hard — and ours is no different — but this team is making it look easy thus far. Less than a year into the business and we just announced our second round of funding: $3.5 million led by all of our current investors.
It is no surprise that we have a skilled and experienced team; our previous company was just acquired for $225 million, but this time it feels a bit different. We are doing all of this as a ‘Product Led Growth’ team vs a ‘sales led’ team. 80% of our company is in either an engineering or product function. We want to ensure we deliver value all throughout the customer lifecycle, so we’re not only giving the product away for free right now, but we are planning on doubling down on these efforts in the upcoming months.
We just had a complete redesign of our application that ensured our mobile users weren’t left in the dark (~10% of our traffic), changing quotas have a place to be entered (23% of all plans), and our shared quotas (8%) are also a part of the new release. Couple that with a detailed breakdown view of each deal that is closed or forecasted, and we already think we have the best commission tracking software in the market. If you still need help, we implemented live chat (from Intercom) into the platform, so please reach out.
Even with all of the above, we are just getting started and we plan to build the best team possible (we’re hiring!) so that we can continue to make QuotaPath more powerful for our users and launch to the general public very soon. Our press release written by our “PR Manager” Graham Collins explains more if you’re interested.
Until then, our mission to build a tool where a community of high performing sales teams can learn from their deals and hit more quotas is alive and well. We have workspaces, team and manager views, and CRM integration on the horizon and I couldn’t be more excited about the next 12 months.
That said, don’t ever forget, it is about the journey, not the destination.
