For me, going into 2021 after the uncertainty of 2020 was a mixed bag.
While our product offered great value to small businesses during the shutdowns of 2020, COVID-19 related uncertainties were far from over.
Fortunately, it turned out to be a great year for Agentz to grow our channel partners and help them drive better ROI for their customers. Focusing on our API-driven white label solutions that provide flexibility to our partners while complementing the SMB tech ecosystem has paid off!
What Happened in 2021
In 2021 we expanded upon our theme of easy setup, multiple channels, and uniform customer experience across SMS, Google Chat, and Facebook Messenger, all encompassed within a unified inbox so that SMBs don’t have to worry about missing a call, text, or online inquiry. Our product & engineering team worked on 987 items and did 14 major releases in 2021!
While we stay committed to helping SMBs do simple things faster, better, and cheaper using AI, we are excited for 2022 with a great roadmap ahead of us that will provide even more options to our partners including deeper industry-specific solutions, voice automation, conversational AI training, and additional third-party integrations.
I want to thank all of our partners who are committed to serving SMBs, just as we are, and I am thankful for their influence in our ongoing product development and their trust in Agentz to help serve their customers with excellence. We are thrilled to be partnered with you and look forward to the years to come.
Also, a big shout out to all the SMBs who work so hard every day and comprise 44% of the US economy. Our team is passionate about serving SMBs and our mission has always been to provide a solution that works specifically for them so that they don’t have to try and repurpose enterprise technologies that are expensive and simply won’t work. We believe that SMBs deserve purpose-built products along with tons of appreciation for all that they do for our communities.
Last but not least, thank you team Agentz: Arun Kumar, Kerry Baldwin, Neal Polachek, Charles Dyer, Korak Mitra and our entire engineering team. I am grateful to have amazing advisors and a fantastic team which makes this startup journey exciting and worthwhile.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
