Ketchup by Statflo

Empower front-line staff with a Salesforce-integrated tool that helps them initiate and maintain one-to-one, local P2P connections via text. Embedded training, templates and video coaching enables retail employees to be on-brand and generate revenue within hours.

Ketchup’s compliance engine enforces regulations (ex: TCPA, CASL, CCPA, PIPEDA, GDPR), ensures a uniform contact strategy is followed and collects a verified audit trail of activities from the field. Retail locations see a double digit increase in sales within 60 days, an increase in NPS, and increased engagement of the front-line.
