-- EBS and Elavon to provide global payment support at the highest levels of security and safety
-- Customers can now take qualified leads to closure instantaneously
Saralweb, India’s only sales focused business search enabling portal aimed at dramatically reducing the cost of sale for SMEs, today announced that it is now fully integrated with leading global payment gateway service providers. With this, Saralweb now has made it extremely convenient for its customers and members to take advantage of the thousands of sales leads available within the portal to grow their business and reach out to an increasingly wide cross-section of buyers and sellers worldwide. Users can now use their debit cards, credit cards, cash cards and net banking to transact with Saralweb in a highly safe, secure, convenient and friendly environment.
The payment gateway has been enabled by two service providers: EBS (www.ebs.in) for payments in INR, through Net banking, Debit Cards and Cash Cards) and Elavon (www.elavon.com) for payments in all currencies including INR through credit cards only. Both these options come with the highest standards of safety and have the best security back-ends in the business today. The payments are Norton secured, powered by Verisign and carry the (ISO / IEC 27001: 2005 certification, reflecting the best practices in this operational area.
According to Mr. Kaviraj Singh, CEO, Saralweb, “This implementation of the payment gateway feature on our search engine will now enable the Saralweb universe to engage with each other at a deeper level. This is yet another step in our continuing efforts towards increasing the relevance of Saralweb and facilitating effective transactions between its users.”
The users can generate leads by simply searching and contacting, and can also receive leads in the form of buyer interest expressed in emails. The leads so received in email can be then qualified by the users themselves, post which they need to pay a token amount to take it to closure.
Saralweb is a unique and only one of its kind B2B search portal. It allows users to post a query (sell lead) and based on this query, the proprietary search engine then navigates a database, which it has populated using its own unique and patented algorithm to draw up a result list. Using the portal’s facilitated response mechanism, which allows users to deploy their own client-side mail software (g-mail, yahoo mail, outlook, etc); a communication is orchestrated between the two prospective business partners. This grows to a closed deal which is also facilitated and assisted by Saralweb's unique sales force automation feature.
Saralweb reduces the cost of sale for a business by an order of magnitude through innovative business search, conversations engine, and the sales automation application. While it allows unregistered users to search for prospects, Saralweb encourages users to register (at zero cost) and in fact, it is only a registered user who can go to stage-2 of the ‘prospect to lead’ conversion ladder.
Saralweb is a unique business search engine that provides its users tools to prospect, engage and close sales from all across the world. Using Saralweb is free across all activities, including prospecting, engaging with prospects, and closing sales. There is no limit on how many sales leads a business can generate and use either. However, a free user can only access a limited number of self-generated sales leads which constitute a powerful revenue driver. All users also receive system-generated sales leads, which they utilize post free qualification and payment of a small amount.
Saralweb is also the customer facing brand of Netgables, based out of Noida, India and Netgables Seattle, USA. The company is highly innovative and forward looking and has sound financial backing. Key investors in the company include Paul Maritz, ex-CEO of VMWare and one of the great technologists of our time, and Rahul Bhasin, Partner at Baring Private Equity Ltd.
Saralweb is expected to become millions of customers strong worldwide, while simultaneously bringing the costs of maintenance down to a near zero. The core model that Saralweb follows is: Product – Excellent value. Benefit – Much lower cost of sale. Target – SME worldwide. Maintenance – Zero.
