Every entrepreneur needs some basic tools to run the day-to-day business and find new clients. But most of the contact management and sales tools on the market are designed for big companies with deep pockets. In our experience, they're too expensive for small businesses, and too complex to be useful, because they're filled with bells and whistles small business owners don't want, don't need, and can't afford.
We launched UpTyck to support "accidental salespeople" like us - entrepreneurs who are running our own small businesses so we can pursue promising business ideas. We designed UpTyck to make the sales process easy, fast, and fluid by integrating the tools we were already using to take care of business.
Our founder, Rich Fox, is a sales professional with 20 years of experience. He is adept at most of the sales tools on the market and is a power user of SalesForce, but it took him several years to hone those skills. The long, frustrating experience led him to develop a kinder, gentler sales tool that entrepreneurs and small business owners could look forward to using. UpTyck is a google "wrapper" app that sits on top of your gmail inbox, reminding you which leads to call today, tomorrow, and next week to land new clients. It combines your google contacts, calendar and task list to make outreach and follow-up fun and simple.
