Vishal Tulsiani, Business Development Manager, VConnect, made sure that the event was organized and conducted without any hiccups (not all heroes wear capes!). The event not only served as a platform for a healthy meet and greet but was also a great opportunity for service professionals to network.
The launch of Market by VConnect
Market by Vconnect, an innovative means to promote effective marketing and empower small and medium scale enterprises, was officially launched at the event. Market by VConnect seeks to provide business professionals and SMEs a convenient place to sell their services without worrying about the cost of marketing, advertising, and promotion. The customer acquisition cost for businesses will come down drastically with Market by VConnect.

It is a win-win situation for both businesses and customers, as customers will now be able to get things done quickly. The burden of comparison of quotes, referrals, recommendations is taken away by Market by VConnect.
The business summit was also an opportunity to introduce a new feature for a better business experience. The ‘Auto Accept’ feature was introduced to connect business professionals to customers. The feature is available on the business dashboard. This feature allows businesses to automatically accept customer inquiries and instantly kickstart engagements between the two.
Taking the Pledge
Taking a pledge is one of the first steps to onboard a business professional on VConnect. This ensures safety and security of the customers. The pledge is a promise that professionals take to serve their customers with utmost sincerity, professionalism and quality service. Professionals are to provide their bank details and government issued ID in for completing the verification process. Apart from the need for security, Sammie added that “Businesses that have taken the pledge get higher visibility and increase their chances of connecting with customers. 87% of people looking for professionals prefer to connect with one that has the badge over those that don’t.”
All service professionals in attendance took the pledge at the event.
