Frenchweb: What needs does Toucan Toco meet?
Charles Miglietti, co-founder and president of Toucan Toco: We are innovating with a new category in the Business Intelligence market: that of data storytelling, or how to tell stories from a user’s data. We are targeting people who are short on time and need to see their key metrics at a glance.
What’s your value proposition?
We offer our users access to the main stories that tell about their activity and their business.
We create business experiences from their information and what we put in their hands looks like a consumer product, fluid and mobile, on the screen of their smartphone or tablet.
What are the users looking for in your solution?
top management to assess at a glance all the activities of their business,
marketers to consult campaign and media buying efforts and results,
studies to disseminate market data and satisfaction and brand barometers,
salespeople to access a customer diagnosis or their management,
human resources to irrigate managers with a personalized social report,
to finance departments to communicate the company’s results to their teams and boards.
What is your development plan?
In just 2 years, we have recruited more than 30 employees, without raising any funds. Our goal is to hire around 20 people in 2017 to prepare for our internationalization.
We are targeting neighboring countries by the end of 2017.
W hat are your challenges?In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.
Today our growth is not limited by business but by recruitment. We hope to be 40 in January. We have the capacity to integrate these people quickly however we are not sure to find the suitable profiles.
Who are your competitors?
Our competitors are Tableaux and Qlikview.
While our competitors are speaking to analysts, we have taken the point of view of novice users. We are a young company that understands today’s mobility and design challenges and applies them to its product. As such, our applications are available on all media and are easy to use.
