Vymo, a personal assistant for sales professionals, will join Bangkok Bank’s accelerator program, Bangkok Bank Innohub. The 12-week program will provide startups with mentorship and strategic guidance from financial professionals. The process is designed to guide companies toward securing a proof of concept with Bangkok Bank and making a pitch for investment by the program’s end.
“We are excited to be chosen for the Bangkok Bank Innohub program. This is a great opportunity for us to work closely with various stakeholders of one of the largest banks in the region and will enable us to innovate at scale,” Vymo CEO Yamini Bhat said.
Vymo’s technology helps boost the productivity of sales teams, increasing conversion percentages, turnaround time, and sales activity per opportunity. The platform detects the sales representative’s actions automatically, capturing contextual data from phone calls, meetings, emails, and messages.
Vymo then generates actionable insights from the data, letting sales reps know who on their client lists to engage and how, keeping sales managers informed of sales rep activity and progress, and informing sales directors on how best to allocate resources to achieve the best possible sales outcomes.
