This innovative technology also give sales managers access to the reps in the field, so they can understand what their customer activities are.

“The business started by accident,” says Sam Clarke, founder of Skynamo. He had a friend who was finding it challenging to manage his sales team in the field. “So, we started writing an app to try and help him. As we developed it, more and more people wanted to buy this app, and we started to penetrate the South African market at a phenomenal rate.”

Field sales environments tend to be characterised as low trust environments, Skynamo introduces data, which takes the environment from low trust-to-high trust. This converts managers into coaches instead of micromanagers.

In 2018, Skynamo was one of eight finalists for FNB Business Innovation Awards.
