Here at SalesCandy, we aim to regularly conduct experiments related to the industries we serve to gather statistics that would help us improve the performance of our system.
To continuously improve and strengthen our system, SalesCandy has rolled out four minor upgrades on a weekly basis since v1.1 in mid-October.
SalesCandy has successfully raised the total target amount of RM1,501,038 through the equity crowdfunding platform pitchIN. We managed to reach 200.15% above our minimum funding target of RM749,948.
8 weeks after the launching of v1.0 on August 14, 2017, SalesCandy rolled out its very first major upgrade (v1.1) yesterday. This rollout comes with a lot of strengthening of the current system, additional features, and user interface upgrades.
Slightly over three weeks of rolling out SalesCandy to our first Early Adopter, one of them has successfully closed their first property sales with the SalesCandy app.
The salesperson responsible for this record called within 28 minutes of the lead submission from their Facebook Lead Ad. Booking fee for the sold unit was made after a visit to the sales gallery. This entire process took place in only nine days - less than the average time it takes for other property developers (which are not using SalesCandy) to make their first call to their incoming online lead.
