The digitization of corporate America has resulted in multiple challenges for IT teams across the country. However, few challenges could be deemed bigger than software waste, an issue that Tekpon is now looking to solve.
Finding the right software for their operations is not an easy task for businesses in the United States, resulting in over $30 billion being wasted every year. With the average American office having $259 worth of unnecessary software installed on its devices, this issue can be especially problematic for small businesses.
Tekpon, a Delaware-based tech startup, was founded back in 2020 with the mission to aggregate software to help organizations, as well as individuals, find the right software for their needs. The startup does this by offering a software marketplace with verified reviews and the option to connect buyers with vendors who already have experience with the software, allowing them to learn from their experience. Alexandru Stan, CEO of Tekpon, says about the startup mission:
“You can succeed with your tech startup only if you choose the right software for your business. These days, there is such a thing as ‘perfect fit’ which will give people just what they need and nothing more. That was our goal when we decided to build a perfect marketplace to find the perfect software.”
Tekpon’s marketplace offers software across multiple categories such as accounting, antivirus, affiliate tracking, CMR, email marketing, document managing, HR, Payroll, and SEO, ensuring every organization can take advantage of it. This not only allows them to save money but also to start improving their operations right from the start as they avoid the hassle and effort of implementing software that will prove useless in the long term.
As the startup prepares to raise more funding to scale its business and improve its technological platform, it has already experienced rapid growth and launched several initiatives like its affiliate program earlier this week. The program, which was the result of a partnership with PartnerStack, will provide partners with a 25% revenue share commission for eligible conversions. Alexandru Stan said about this program:
“Our partnership with PartnerStack it’s about letting other individuals or companies help us generate more sales. We let others help us because we rise by lifting others”
Ever since its founding Tekpon has raised over $425k in seed funding so far from investors like GrowthBox and Seed-Stake. Now, the startup is getting ready for the next steps in its expansion, helping users in the United States and around the world to use their funds and effort on the software that really matters.
