Web Summit BETA Startup SUMO Scheduler Solves Huge Problems for Fortune 500 Companies

California-based SaaS company continues to help businesses increase revenue and improve customer satisfaction by simplifying every sales and customer experience through automated scheduling.

Oakland, California, October 9, 2015 – SUMO Scheduler, one of the fastest-growing business applications for scheduling automation, announces its selection as a finalist to compete at the Web Summit PITCH, the Audi-sponsored search for 2015’s most disruptive start-up. Hailed as Europe’s largest annual technology conference, this year’s Web Summit has organized over 21 Industry-Specific Summits, expected to be attended by over 30,000 attendees, 1000 journalists, and 1,000 speakers between November 3rd – 5th, 2015 in Dublin, Ireland.

Officially launched in 2015, SUMO Scheduler was founded by Jason North, an accomplished Silicon Valley technical architect with over 20 years in software, CRM, and consulting. Due to Jason’s extensive background in product development, a VP from the #1 CRM platform in the world has advised him to build a robust scheduling tool to fill a multimillion-dollar void on the platform for enterprise organizations. After his last successful exit, Jason excitedly took on this next venture and built the next big thing in the realm of scheduling automation.

After two years in stealth mode, SUMO Scheduler has effectively streamlined the highly-inefficient scheduling process in various Fortune 500 companies, higher education institutions, and large sales and support organizations. Since the conclusion of the initial roll-out to a Fortune 500 customer, it has been reported that SUMO Scheduler is solving a problem that costs more than $400,000 per month. Based on a brief survey conducted by its Customer Success Team, SUMO Scheduler has also helped a customer from the healthcare industry significantly reduce no-shows by at least 50%.

Earlier this year, SUMO Scheduler has also been picked as one of the 20 US-based companies for the Summit’s exclusive BETA Program, designed for mature stage companies and represents less than 5% of the thousands of applications received for 2015. Nearly a billion dollars have been raised by startups from Web Summit’s Class of 2014, many of whom participated in the BETA Program.

“On behalf of the SUMO Scheduler Team, I warmly invite all investors, journalists, and technology enthusiasts to come visit our stand, indulge yourself with San Francisco’s Ghirardelli chocolates, and let’s talk SaaS and innovation,” North said. The SUMO Scheduler Team will be exhibiting at Stand Number BT-127 in the BETA Village on Day 3 of the Summit, Thursday, November 5, 2015. “You may find the Summit overwhelmingly crazy, so just hunt for the big red SUMO balloon and we’ll be there,” North added with a smile.
