GetAccept’s workflow and e-signature platform for sales secures $7M Series A funding

Many years ago every sales deal was sealed with a handshake between two people. Today, digitization has moved into the sales process, but it hasn’t necessarily improved the experience. In fact, it’s often become a more time-consuming affair because information and communications are scattered across multiple channels and the number of people involved in a deal has increased. That means lots of offers and quotes are get lost in the mix.

GetAccept a startup which provides an all-in-one sales platform where video, live chat, proposal design, document tracking and e-signatures come together to simplify the life of a sales team.

It’s now convinced investors there is such a need, raising a $7 million Series A funding round led by DN Capital, with participation from BootstrapLabs, Y Combinator and a number of Spotify’s early investors including ex-CFO of Spotify, Peter Sterky. The former CMO of Slack and Zendesk, Bill Macaitis, will also join the company’s Board of Directors.

The new capital will be used to scale sales and marketing, and accelerate product innovation for GetAccept’s industry leading document workflow solution for sales.

This round brings GetAccept’s total financing raised to $9M after then won their first seed round in 2017.

Samir Smajic, CEO, GetAccept says while CRM systems have made it easier for sales teams to manage pipeline and broker deals, “60 percent of all contracts are lost to indecision or simply go unanswered… Prospects no longer have to interact with reps to get basic information about a product or service, making the sales process highly impersonal. But prospects still need a rep to guide them through an increasingly complex B2B sales process in order to make better-informed buying decisions.” He believes GetAccept bridges this growing “engagement gap”.

GetAccept integrates into a company’s sales pipeline through technology partnerships with CRM and sales automation platforms including Salesforce, HubSpot, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and others.

It’s pitched as an all-in-one sales platform which compete with several separate tools including well-financed solutions likeDocsend, Pandadoc, Showpad, Highspot, Docusign, and Adobe Sign. Their ‘sales pitch’ is that companies can do all of the things in those products but the single GetAccept platform is actually geared toward to sales reps and includes the important features that help sales reps to actually move deals forward.

“Getting a deal to the point of contract has become increasingly difficult because buyers now get most of their information online,” said Thomas Rubens, Partner at DN Capital. “GetAccept honed in on this growing issue early on and built a best-in-class platform for managing document workflow and engagement across the entire sales cycle.”

GetAccept has so far signed customers including Samsung, Stanley and Siemens . It’s also expanded to the US and EMEA including Norway, Denmark and France.

Samsung Galaxy phone ads may have been too splashy for Australia

Samsung is facing multi-million dollar fines in Australia, as the country watchdog sued the company over misleading Galaxy phone ads. 

According to Reuters, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has sued Samsung, claiming the company promoted Galaxy phones as suitable to use in swimming pools and saltwater without having adequately tested them for such activities. 

“The ACCC alleges Samsung’s advertisements falsely and misleadingly represented Galaxy phones would be suitable for use in, or for exposure to, all types of water, including in ocean water and swimming pools, and would not be affected by such exposure to water for the life of the phone, when this was not the case,” ACCC chair Rod Sims said in a statement

The ACCC claims that Samsung has “widely advertised” Galaxy phones as water resistant since 2016, in more than 300 different ads. At the same time, the company did not (sufficiently) test the phones’ water resistance, and it denied warranty claims from consumers whose phones were damaged in water.  

The phones in question were manufactured from 2016 to 2019 and range from the Galaxy S7 to the new S10, Note 7 to 9, and A5 to A8. Samsung sold more than four million Galaxy phones in Australia, ACCC claims. 

Samsung told Reuters that it stands by its advertising. The company claims it complied with Australian law and it plans to defend the case.

Interestingly, Samsung appears to have deleted its ads directed at the Australian market that promote water resistance. In the tweet below, the video is unavailable, and we were unable to find any of the social media ads ACCC has highlighted

We’ve reached out to Samsung for comment and will update this post when we hear from them.
