MVP ready for sales

Hello! πŸ‘‹πŸ»

This is my first product update so sit tight.

chamados.io was born from a regular freelance work that I started a few months ago. At first, the idea didn't struck me much. It was just another corporate software to solve a specific need of company, right?

Well, kinda of.

As I researched about the market, the business rules of the software and the companies that it could target, things started getting interesting:

- βœ… It is a very specific niche (physical maintenance companies)
- βœ… It has a fair, but not too much competition from other small companies (the kind of competition that makes me more motivated, not scared)
- βœ… It solves a real management-level problem of the companies that buy it
- βœ… As you put more data into it, it gets more harder to leave the product for another (the Evernote effect)

The cons are, well, I know basically nothing about B2B sales. Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

Both the product and the landing page are in Portuguese right now, and I'm in no hurry to internationalise the whole thing, as it is incredibly hard to run a global business from Brazil.

Now, about the product. It has three core functionalities:Β 
- πŸ›  The ticket management system, where the company clients can open new tickets, see past tickets, approve maintenance spendings, etc. It is available on web πŸ–₯ and Android πŸ“± (iOS coming soon)
- πŸ›  The team management system, where the company can assign employees to take care of tickets. The basic functions are ready, but not everything, so this is still a WIP 🚧
- πŸ›  The customer management system, where the company keeps track of everything, knows how much to charge, etc

I currently have one customer πŸŽ‰ (the one that hired me to build all the stuff in the first place), and currently freezed about how to get my next customer 😡.

My next priorities are:
- 🚧 Start working on the sales funnel
- 🚧 Keep implementing and improving core functionalities

I'm, of course, afraid that I might be coding too much and focusing too little on sales & marketing. That's something I'll have to get around.

That's it. Let's see how I go down the B2B sales road πŸ™πŸ»

Just curious, does the client that hired you to build this know that you plan to sell it as a saas? That should be in the contract to avoid problems

I started this week conversations with them to know if they wanna move to the SaaS version or keep the current software. If they agree I'll probably put them on a special plan with all the new and future updates and a custom price. After all, they showed me the way, right?

There isn't any problem juridically speaking because of the way our contract was structured. So I'm cool ☺️
