Customer leads play a key role

Companies like Zomato, Walmart, Delhivery, Upstox, Zest Money and the Tata Group use their services to reach out to customers to sell high- ticket items via phone calls and improve sales efficiency.

The startup can capture about 40 data points from customer leads, on the basis of which it helps track customer persona, processes them and helps companies in their sales.

SquadIQ was launched in 2018 in India and has now been taken to the US as well, targeting the real-estate segment. Otherwise, SquadIQ helps sell high-ticket products and services across financial services, education, healthcare and retail.

“We have worked with companies across the spectrum and our expertise is in converting leads into sales -- that is where we have found our sweet spot and using our advanced technology, we are offering these services to our clients,” said Saswata Shankar De, general manager of SquadIQ business.

In 2019, SquadStack launched its products for the US real-estate sector and had seen strong growth till COVID-19 hit the industry and caused a massive slowdown.

Now, American brokers are looking for software solutions to maximise their profitability and boost team performance during these tough times. This led to the creation of 'Auctm', a business management platform that helps broker teams boost revenue, cut costs, and improve agent training and retention.
