About Nooks

Imagine the future of work:

  • You can work from anywhere in the world, but still work with your team like you’re sitting side-by-side. A virtual office
  • Your office is smart. It learns how your team works, identifies “winning” behaviors, then replicates them across the team. An AI co-pilot

Recent advances in large language models and the pandemic-induced shift to remote/distributed work suggest this future is not-so-distant. With all your work happening online instead of in-person, it’s now possible to systematically turn this vast quantity of unstructured data into actionable strategies and feedback loops. We’re making this a reality, starting with sales teams.

Nooks is a smart virtual salesfloor that multiplies reps productivity by bringing realtime collaboration and AI tooling to the team’s sales calls.

The problem

A sales team with a dozen reps does hundreds of customer-facing calls every day. They’re all selling the same product, with the same pitch, to the same personas, answering the same questions – and they learn something new from each conversation. If this information stays siloed, reps will improve slowly. But if learnings are shared across the team, improvements compound. The best reps actually have 3x higher conversion rates on sales conversations compared to their teammates! So tight feedback loops can make a sales team significantly more effective. But today, most sales reps are siloed working at home and the main opportunities they have for feedback are weekly 1:1’s and team training sessions. These methods are old-school, infrequent, and ineffective – feedback loops are effectively nonexistent today.

Our solution

Teams use Nooks to work together throughout the day – our smart dialer automates the manual process of calling and our salesfloor facilitates realtime collaboration on calls. Nooks analyzes the team’s conversations to understand the winning playbooks, then helps replicate these across the team.

  • Reps 3x their sales conversations using the Nooks dialer. It uses AI to accelerate the manual process of calling. Nooks automatically detects answering machines, leaves voicemails, and filters out bad numbers to save reps hours of repetitive tasks
  • Reps work together in Nooks throughout the day (avg ~3hrs/day)! They can listen to each others’ calls, give live advice, and strategize after calls. This dramatically reduces ramp times and improves feedback loops
  • Nooks operationalizes and standardizes winning playbooks across the team. AI insights help managers identify strategies to improve their playbooks. Going forward, Nooks automatically tracks how well the team is following these strategies

Teams that use Nooks often see a 2-3x increase in reps’ productivity within weeks!
