Describe the company – the elevator pitch:

Tilkee is a cloud based app that increases sales team’s closing rate and optimises prospect follow-up by tracking how, when and for how long your sent sales proposals/marketing material is read and informs you in real time email alerts. Since Tilkee removes the random & time wasting out of follow-ups, you can now contact the right prospect, at the right time, with the right action to boost your conversion rate, shorten your sales cycle & streamline your sales process. It’s personalisable and integrate-able into your everyday sales and marketing tools.

How are you different?

Tilkee is the only worldwide solution to be integrated into such a wide range of CRMs, email tools, CPQ and everyday sales & marketing tools and to display such a wide variety of different documents on any device or web browser.

Why will the company/product do well?

Because Tilkee responds to a common everyday sales problem. 60% of business proposals sent out are never followed up on and salespeople waste 24 minutes everyday following up with uninterested prospects. With Tilkee you know who is interested, by what and when for fast, efficient follow-ups with interested prospects which are more likely to be transformed into clients.

Where are you based?

Lyon, London and Munich.

When was the company launched?

July 2014

What have been your biggest wins to date?

EDF sales & marketing teams use Tilkee nationally across France. They doubled their conversion rate and shortened their sales cycle. Other clients include, Orange, Adecco and TNT.

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?

Everyone uses Tilkee from individual entrepreneurs and job seekers, to SMEs to large multinational accounts. We are mainly trying to attract larger accounts which are present across the European markets that we’re present in currently (UK, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal).

Tell us about your team?

We’re a growing startup with a 20 person strong team (soon to be 25) which is now exporting internationally to Germany, Spain, Portugal, UK and France.

What are your favourite tech gadgets?

If I can talk about online tools then I’d say Zapier. It saves us a lot of time and frustratation at Tilkee as it automises marketing and sales tasks between different apps (gmail, tilkee, pipedrive etc) and no code is required.

Anything else you’d like to add / we should have asked?

You can do a trial for 14 days free of charge and no need to fill in your payment details.
