Otta's take

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Teya, formerly known as SaltPay, provides business solutions tailored to SMEs. Specialising in offering payment solutions, business management tools, and growth strategies, Teya focuses on simplifying software usage for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Since its relaunch in early 2023, Teya has experienced remarkable growth, attaining unicorn status in the industry. This success can be attributed, in part, to its strategic partnership with Liberis, which now enables Teya to offer pre-approved revenue-based finance, streamlining the application process and providing even greater convenience to its customers.

As Teya looks to the future, it remains committed to investing in continuous innovation and expansion. With plans to broaden its product suite, Teya is poised to remain at the forefront of the market, meeting the evolving needs of its diverse clientele.

Company values

  • The customer defines our purpose - Our customers work tirelessly to give us products and experiences which improve our communities and society as a whole. They’re the reason for our existence and drive us forward every day. We make sure they’re at the forefront of the decisions we make, we dedicate time to listening and building connections with them, and their problems are ours.
  • Care - We care deeply about our customers, as well as each other. For Teya, ‘care’ means being empathetic to each other and putting the needs of others before ourselves. It means that we’re respectful, honest, and focused on bringing out the best in all of us. We invest time in teaching and are open to new learning experiences so we can grow together.
  • Say it as it is - We believe that honesty leads to better communication, stronger relationships, and greater results for our customers. We avoid sugar-coating things, we’re transparent with each other, and humble enough to admit when we don’t have the answer.
  • Ask why - We want to understand problems deeply, and we believe the best way to achieve this is by getting back to the root assumptions that drive decisions. Asking ‘why’ is an important tool to help us challenge old processes that no longer serve our customers, and we’re never afraid of breaking things to build something better.
  • Challenge until you’re convinced - We want to leverage the power of diverse opinions and perspectives across the business to get to the best outcomes. We encourage challenge to decisions which impact our customers, and understand that this only works when supported by the right context, care, and respect.
  • Entrepreneurs at heart - At Teya, we’re shared owners of our vision and we take responsibility for delivery against it, no matter what role or region we might represent. As entrepreneurs, we expect difficult challenges and embrace them. We have a bias for taking action and delivering measurable results over empty promises or pretty presentations.
  • Tech-savvy - To deliver value for more customers, we need technology to be at the heart of how we solve problems. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a software developer or a frontline agent, we use technology to improve every process. We believe every manual task is an opportunity for automation, and we encourage everyone in the business to live this mindset.
  • Be a team player - We know we’re only going to be successful if we work together. We take time to study our own flaws to complement them with the strengths of other Teyans. There’s no room for office politics or competing egos, as ultimately our customers deserve better from us. High-performing teams at Teya come from different backgrounds with different context, but with deep levels of trust and respect for each other.
  • Winning mindset - We benchmark ourselves against the highest standards, and make the choice to go above and beyond. This sometimes means we fail to deliver on our short term goals, but the learnings we take fuel progress against our ultimate vision. We value a growth mindset, and it’s our desire to do better and do more for our customers that keeps us going.
