Today I am excited to share that Rattle has raised $2.8M in seed funding from two of the most prestigious venture firms in the world - Lightspeed and Sequoia. We are humbled by their support & belief in our mission and thrilled to welcome them as partners in our journey.
In our previous experiences, we had used almost all major software - Salesforce for CRM, SAP for ERP, Workday for HRIS, Jira for Issue Tracking, and many more. One common frustration across these systems was their usability. Their user interface is stuck in the 90s, they feel overly complex for performing simple tasks and would usually load slow.
Contrast that to other applications that we use in our daily lives - Instagram, Uber/Lyft, Spotify, etc which have a delightful user experience. We wanted to solve this dichotomy.
While we were searching for a solution, we saw the meteoric rise of new-age engagement platforms such as Slack and MS Teams and the answer was clear. What if we merge enterprise software with collaboration applications that we all live in & love. This insight gave birth to Rattle.
We started with Salesforce as the enterprise platform and Slack as the messaging app and built a deep integration between the two platforms. And the response from our customers has been phenomenal from Day 1
Wherever we rolled out Rattle - we saw irreversible behavioral change as to how information was consumed and captured. What took hours before could now be done in seconds. What was reactive before, suddenly became proactive.
Frontline reps started saving a lot of time spent doing admin work on Salesforce and managers would be proactively alerted for important events and started catching things that would have otherwise slipped through the cracks.
An example below - a rep could now log their meeting notes in seconds as opposed to logging into Salesforce, finding the record, finding the field, and making the update.
We knew from user feedback that this was game-changing for their team’s productivity. But when we looked at the data, it absolutely blew our mind as to how transformational this was.
We have built the most advanced Salesforce <> Slack integration on the planet and are continuing to make it better.
What we have done for Salesforce & Slack, we plan to bring the same transformation for all enterprise software. We are starting with the GTM tech stack and will be adding support for MS Teams soon.
