NAME OF STARTUP:: Converso
FOUNDED IN (Year): 2019
FOUNDER’S NAME: Chris Barley
THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:
Converso embeds payment requests in messaging channels, making it simple for service based businesses to create support conversations with their customers.
Mobile friendly invoices can be added that are payable in a couple of clicks, making on-time payment collection a breeze. And automated text reminders means no more awkward debt chasing calls!
THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:
Conversations can be assigned to members of a support team for improved productivity, and all channels can be managed from a single inbox.
Payments can be made via card (using Stripe), or by Pay by Bank (using Open Banking) for cost savings of around 90%. Integrations with Xero (and coming soon Quickbooks) helps saves time reconciling accounts.
WHO IS THE CUSTOMER: What is the typical profile of your target customer? Where would they be located?:
Engage your customers over text and WhatsApp for easier support and faster payments,
