Speaking of the acquisition, Nikhil Toshniwal, Co-founder of FarmGuide, added that the primary force behind the transaction was synergies into the target mission of providing end-to-end services to farmers in a scalable model.

Onboard Offers Help to SaaS companies Grow Faster

Onboard, a 10-month-old startup works with the SaaS company to create a global task list with requirements it has hopefully gleaned from the sales process, and helps it create a kind of dynamic, drop-down task list with assignees and due dates and alerts and notifications. It aims to help SaaS businesses delight those new customers instead of turning them off. The five-person company is not charging its dozens of beta customers right now. It wants to get the product right before it shifts into revenue gear, says Jeff Epstein, Co-founder & CEO. 

It’s largely a self-service product that makes accountability more transparent, ultimately, though Epstein describes the onboarding process as a “shared responsibility” between his company and its customers. He also says his nascent startup is already working on building out a more sophisticated notification layer with automated nudges that are helpful yet not obnoxious.
