No brainer Reason #1 justifying a mobile ERP sales app might not even immediately jump to most people’s mind:
- Be able to assign a new territory to a sales rep, then in minutes have them download an app, login, and instantly have all of their customers and contacts, complete with phone numbers, email addresses, physical addresses right at their fingertips. This is preferable to assigning the territory, then have the rep spend weeks or even months manually cobbling together an address book on their phone–and hoping they keyed everything accurately.
If you are a sales rep en route to visit a client, there’s a chance that you could get stuck behind a pile-up on the highway or encounter other unforeseen circumstances that have you running late. With a mobile sales app, there’s no need to have a heart attack wondering if the client’s (correct) phone number is in your address book, though. Staying calm is important! Remember, a confident salesperson is a successful salesperson!
