WebsPlanet is an industry pioneer in white label online presence solutions. Over the last decade, we have built a loyal, international client base of service providers such as directories, telcos, domain providers, and web hosting companies that sell our website-builder to their SMB customers. We have spent the last 3 years developing Cosmos; a revolutionary SaaS Commerce Platform for Applications to enable our partners to sell 3rd party services and applications to SMBs.
Cosmos provides an entire ecosystem connecting channels, SMB customers, and application providers. It is a white label, all-in-one solution for the SMB end-user to manage a business online. Key features include an intuitive user dashboard to visualize activity across multiple applications, a marketplace to purchase more SaaS products, business operations management area, and billing system. Additionally, end-users will benefit from the platform’s deep integration with each application, providing an unprecedented level of connectivity between the many online services required for them to remain competitive. For the service provider, Cosmos is the best solution for delivering a branded dashboard and marketplace to their customers.
WebsPlanet has designed the platform in such a way that our service provider partners can invest their time and resources in sales and customer growth instead of building and maintaining a robust software solution.
1. Cosmos is the first End-to-end management tool designed to help SMBs manage their business online & improve business performance
While there are many marketplaces in the market that provide accessibility to cloud SaaS apps and allow SMBs to purchase apps online, Cosmos is the only one focused on solving some of the day to day issues SMBs are facing to create true value. For example:
- Cosmos automates the connectivity between the purchased apps, creating unmatched user experience for the SMBs
- Cosmos aggregates messages and statistics from all apps into one dashboard and management tool, allowing the SMB to easily follow up on any open lead they got from any app, all from one dashboard
- Cosmos provides a built-in mini-CRM designed to fit the unique needs of any SMB
2. Proactive BI based recommendations and bundles
Cosmos records the SMBs’ purchase and success behavior and learns “what works”. Based on this BI, Cosmos suggests pro-active recommendations to its SMB users in order to help them improve their business performance.
Based on this BI, service providers are able to create revenue-generating, churn reducing packages making Cosmos a mission critical tool, providing real value to their customers.
3. Built-in billing system
In today’s Cloud based apps, each app has a different billing cycle – monthly, yearly, one-time fee. Cosmos comes with a smart advanced billing system that knows how to handle each subscription type (including upgrade/downgrade events taking place in the middle of a billing cycle).
Service providers can use the built in billing system or enjoy its APIs to get all the relevant data and reports needed in order to integrate into any existing billing system. This reduces the huge hurdle of integrating new products into the old, heavy billing systems that most telco companies are using.
Complexity: Time to Market / Deployment
The speed and efficiency of implementing the Cosmos platform is unmatched. Not only does this save time and money during launch but also when adding new services and adapting to shifts in market trends. This allows our partners to deploy an integrated solution very quickly and respond to ongoing customer needs.
Innovation / Agility
Both WebsPlanet and our Cosmos platform were born out of innovation. Cosmos was designed to create a better experience for SMBs by providing an innovative, truly integrated ecosystem of clients, software providers, and service providers. One excellent example of this innovation is the upcoming integration with Amazon Alexa which allows the user to retrieve important information regarding their business via voice control.
This means SMBs can access information from their SaaS applications even though that SaaS provider does not have such an integration. There is no other solution on the market which packages this power of integration into a user-friendly, functional tool for small businesses.
Cosmos delivers everything a service provider needs to take the solution to market: User dashboard, Marketplace, Subscription provisioning and management, Integrated billing system, Robust admin area for user management, reporting, etc, and much more.
It can be a true turn-key solution. For the SMB, the same logic applies. Cosmos can provide all the online tools they need in one place. Beyond just access to each of these tools, Cosmos also presents crucial performance data to the user as well as dynamic recommendations based on these KPIs.
WebsPlanet has always strived to be an agile and responsive company. This mindset has allowed us to work with partners across multiple industries and also meet their strict requirements even when they did not fall in our normal scope of work. The ability and willingness to adapt to customer needs has proven to be a key differentiator for our company.
Online Presence – Industry Experience
WebsPlanet was founded as a white label website building platform over 10 years ago. This led the company to initially work with directory publishers and later other profiles such as domain providers, telcos, and hosting companies.
The focus on the online presence industry has allowed our team to gain a deep understanding of the needs and trends in this industry. While traditionally our product suite has been centered around websites, email accounts, and domains, the applications integrated into Cosmos fit perfectly into our area of expertise.
