WebsPlanet Ltd

Location: Tel Aviv, Israel

Sector: SaaS.

Add to Shortlist
Express Interest

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.

 

Holistic Approach

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.

 

Adaptability

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.

ConveyIQ

Location: New York, NY

Sector: HR – Software.

Add to Shortlist
Express Interest

ConveyIQ is a Recruitment Automation Platform that changes the way companies engage with top talent. The company’s mission is to build the most innovative products possible that enable employers to create remarkable hiring experiences at scale.

 

Leading companies in over 95 countries work with ConveyIQ to communicate and screen their applicants including Dentsu Aegis Network, NBCUniversal, Concentrix/Convergys, Equinox, Proscribe, Meredith Corporation, and The New York Times. Additionally, the Company has strategic partnerships and integrations with many of the world’s leading Applicant Tracking Systems such as Oracle, IBM, Workday, ADP, Greenhouse, and iCIMS.

 

ConveyIQ is used to streamline and standardize communication with candidates through recruitment automation technology, which saves recruiters significant time enabling them to spend more time sourcing candidates. The Company powers this smart communication via automated text messages, emails, digital interviewing, scheduling, chatbots, and polling.

1. Technologically sophisticated and powerful product that solves a myriad of pain points associated with Talent Acquisition –

ConveyIQ has brought the first Recruitment Automation Solution for post-apply communication to market. This Suite integrates seamlessly into the ATS, powering real-time and relevant communication to candidates via text message and email.

 

The technology’s defensibility is multi-faceted and underpinned by the complexity of its workflow engine, which interprets ATS data to personalize communication to candidates. The speed and depth of the integration with the ATS is powered by the Company’s proprietary middleware and connectors, through its Integration Services hub.

 

2. Software is for a market that is highly underserved by current solutions and recruiting is still highly manual, with over 90% of HR spend funding agencies and staff, not technology. These market conditions enable disruption to occur

The biggest opportunity for ConveyIQ is to help enterprise companies that hire a high volume of candidates streamline and automate their hiring processes. This lends itself to industries such as Retail, Hospitality, Manufacturing, Transportation, Call Centers, and Healthcare. Many of these organizations hire field workers who are hard to recruit.

 

Typically, these industries have been underserved by new technology, as most HRTech companies focus on solving pain points for Technology companies and the sourcing and screening of highly skilled workers, such as engineers. The pain of recruiting in a tight labor market and reaching people who are not using computers daily or on LinkedIn frequently, is a major opportunity to attract and retain these workers.

 

3. Very strong demand from the market and Average Contract Values currently averaging 3-4x the Company’s first product, Take the Interview, the digital interviewing product

Since the product’s Beta launch in February 2018, the Company has already generated $1M in bookings. Existing client contracts increased 2x – 9x. There is a strong overlap in the client base of the first product, Take the Interview, and Convey, but the Suite solution solves more pain points and is more integrated into the overall hiring process, which enables the company to see higher contract values and high retention over time.

1. Middleware that enables seamless connection to the Applicant Tracking System to extract data for personalized communication in real-time.

The platform integrates into existing Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) the way in which Marketo or Hubspot would integrate into Salesforce or another CRM system. At each stage of the hiring process, the connectivity to the ATS tells the Convey platform what type of communication to send out and to which group of candidates. ConveyIQ’s engineering team built its own middleware and connectors to the most pervasive enterprise Applicant Tracking Systems in order to facilitate the simulation of communication in the process.

 

All the Applicant Tracking Systems that comprise approximately 80% of the ATS market share are supported and adding additional connectors for smaller ATS players is a relatively seamless process.

 

2. Experienced executive team with 50+ years, collectively, of relevant industry and operational Startup experience.

Danielle Weinblatt, the Founder & CEO, has been developing products for the HRTech industry since 2011. Her first product, Take the Interview, has powered the screening process for over 200 enterprises globally, which she started developing while getting her masters at Harvard.

 

COO, Larry Murff, has held both Operational and Financial executive roles at Bazaarvoice, Sprinklr, Quantcast and was the CFO of Expediter Services, an early stage transportation startup that scaled to $30M in revenue prior to a successful exit.

 

Andy Schafer was formerly the VP of Engineering at Createthegroup, a digital creative and ecommerce company, where he ran global engineering and before that, Avanade (sold to Accenture), where he ran the application development practice.

 

The SVP of Sales, Mark La Rosa was both the VP of Sales from Monetate and Panjiva, and laid the foundation for the success of the famous VC, David Rose’s company, Gust, as the VP of Sales and Business Development.

 

3. First-to-market with in-hiring process communication solution gives opportunity for thought leadership and market dominance

Other players in the market are focusing on automation pre-apply to attract candidates versus automating the arduous recruiting tasks for high-volume employers. Additionally, Convey also scales communication during the hiring process and is able to do so because of its integration with the ATS during the stages of the hiring process. This is true engagement and marketing automation post-apply vs. pre-apply and thus, can automate parts of the process typically not automated, such as screening and scheduling.

 

4. Advanced workflow engine powers personalized communication to candidates during the hiring process

ConveyIQ’s personalization engine determines the cohorts of candidates that the system must send communications to during the hiring process. Based on identifiers from the Applicant Tracking System (ATS), the system identifies the attributes that qualify what type of communication should be sent out, which language is best suited for the communication, when the communication should go out, and which medium is most appropriate.

 

It works similarly to the complex underpinnings of marketing automation systems such as Marketo and Hubspot, but is designed for recruiting professionals. The product provides templates for best practices in communicating with candidates that recruiters can utilize throughout the process.

 

5. Official Integration partnerships with Oracle, IBM, Workday, iCIMS, Greenhouse and the industry’s most pervasive Applicant Tracking Systems.

The connectivity of the Convey platform to the Applicant Tracking System is a critical part of its ability to deliver the solution to clients and actively personalize the communication. Partnerships with key players such as Oracle’s Talent Acquisition Cloud and Workday give ConveyIQ special access to APIs necessary for development and sandboxes that enable the Company to test its integrations without client involvement, providing a more seamless onboarding process.

Magnifi will be the first virtual co-working market network. Offering all the benefits of a physical co-working space in addition to its patented on-demand paid consultation tool, gig economy and knowledge workers can now connect with their clients, their community and the world by mobile device or desktop, anywhere, anytime.

Mobile-first approach

The usability and architecture of the Magnifi application is specifically designed to meet the exponentially growing mobile marketplace. Many of our competitors are centered around the desktop computer which has implications for poorer usability on mobile devices.

 

Peer-to-peer architecture

Peer-to-peer architecture leverages the capabilities inherent in the nodal nature of the Internet which in turn enables point to point streaming from handset to handset versus each audio or video stream being hosted by a third-party video vendor such as Twilio. Point to point or peer-to-peer streaming results in dramatically reduced bandwidth costs which are typically the highest variable costs in a business comprised primarily of streaming media and, video consultation.

 

Intellectual property

MindShare Technologies operating as Magnifi has been granted a patent for the billing of audio and video consultations in increments which means that it has specific rights attached to the way it creates and bills on-demand audio and video consultations.  This enables Magnifi to defend its business from a competitor using the same sort of methodology in addition to potentially litigating to prevent usage therein.

 

Mobile network in pocket

Magnifi provides a seamless mobile end-to-end solution that handles chat, video, and billing while offering a one-to one, personalized experience for knowledge workers and seekers to connect anytime and anywhere. Magnifi is a fully integrated marketplace in the pocket.

 

Affiliate program

Every Magnifi knowledge worker can earn cash by referring other knowledge workers or users who participate in paid calls. Simply by sharing their profile ‘sharing’ link with others who sign up for Magnifi, knowledge workers can now earn 5% of their gross call cost every time referred to as Affiliate Revenue.

1.  Co-Working is Foundational to the Knowledge Economy

Statistic’s show the number of co-working spaces in the United States grew 28778.6 % from 2007 to 2017. This represents 1.18 million people working in coworking spaces and it is forecasted to grow another 50% by 2022.
