MARCH – 1st COVID lockdown

MARCH – 1st COVID lockdown

Covid 19 Pandemic Hits When everyone went into lockdown, the company was very concerned that our clients would have a smooth transition from office to work at home, with the main focus or hundreds of salespeople and potential staff issues including, big office space and now having ability to work from home. So the first task was speaking to all the clients to make sure that they were able to use the CRM and all the systems effectively whilst working remotely. To our surprise, everything’s absolutely working fine. We actually found out that they moved into lockdown themselves a week before and we were totally unaware of – and all the systems…

APRIL – Skale birthdays and birthday wishes

APRIL – Skale birthdays and birthday wishes

We’ve been stuck in lockdown for two months or maybe even three months,. We were just coming out of lockdown, so thought it was a good opportunity to celebrate all the May birthdays which one happens to be our CEO and also Paulina’s around that time, plus a few more. So we had a pizza lunch, which was lovely. It is a great opportunity as we hadn’t seen each other face to face for a long time so this is great, just to meet up. It was really important for us as a team to come together. We’ve not been together for a very long time. So what we implemented very quickly on was, we had three standups on zoom a day or three zoom coffees a day as a team. So we had a coffee in the morning, a coffee lunch time, a coffee in the evening just to keep interaction between the team. So actually it kept morale very high. And it kept the team spirit very high. But nothing really beats meeting face to face. So the first opportunity that we could we get everybody into the office, we tool. Although we all are still…

JUNE – Virtual Vision Finance 2020. Online Booth

JUNE – Virtual Vision Finance 2020. Online Booth

What a show Virtual Vision was The first virtual conference that we had. So actually it was a challenge. For the CEO personally, outside of our comfort zone, we did a webinar for the first time, pre-recorded which got some great feedback. But really, it is very difficult to pick up new business from a conference. So it’s really just a marketing exercise method whereas beforehand it was like meeting people, having able to networking just to grow brand exposure. The ability to network was very, very limited and the branding was also quite limited. We spent a whole day on it, being manning the boost, so I’m not sure if it’s a great use of time whether you could spend the money that you put into marketing on that day into online ads…

JUNE – 1st Skale Online Seminar By David Keys to the Ferrari

JUNE – 1st Skale Online Seminar By David Keys to the Ferrari

Skale travels the globe from its own meeting room with ‘Key to the my Ferrari’ Quite early on when we launched the first version of Skale CMR, in-fact, before we had a system when we were first doing websites and integrations with brokers, one of our clients said, “Just give me the keys to my Ferrari.” , “The system looks amazing but just when have the keys? When I have to control myself is like your car.” Skale CRM is build in a user centric manor, developed with a a specific view. If a client wanted to change any aspect of the system, they didn’t…

JULY – 3 new languages added to the system, making now 18 fully supported languages.

Super chuffed to now have so many languages as part of Skale bundle Having 18 languages on our client portal shows a real global reach of who’s using the system. So we’ve got languages on there from Vietnamese, Spanish, all the expected languages Russian, Arabic, English and Japanese. This is translated by financial translators either our clients or our own internal translation. This is not google translate. Languages has really allowed us to open up a few new worlds. By opening up new markets that by the fact of penetrating new markets, we’ve had to expand the languages that we support now. Obviously, in this day and age, there’s nothing better than to have to read something in your native language to show that you actually understand and you’re close to your clients. So having a system that’s actually in the language of the person at the place that you’re attracting really shows that you’re embedded and invested in the country and you’re not just coming from outside. It’s not gonna be able to speak to you in…

NOVEMBER – 100 payment gateway integration

NOVEMBER – 100 payment gateway integration

How many did you say? It makes a huge milestone for scale to hit 100 payment gateways, integrated into our platform. This gives a huge benefit to our clients as we know being able to choose from a wide range of a selection for different plugin payment options too and to be able to add by themselves to the system. So again, Page 19 of 22 giving control to a client install over 100 payment gateways, allowing them to reduce their costs by not having to developer integrate and obviously increasing their revenue because they’re able to start accepting payments much earlier. So without having to wait two weeks for this to be done, again two weeks on them on themselves without having to spend any additional costs. So this is huge for our clients. This is what we hear from them. And this is a great milestone for scale as a whole to hit to 100 integrations. Speaker 1: It’s also perfect because from an American perspective,…
