iPads and other mobile tablets can replace paper and laptops in your sales and marketing teams. We can develop apps that are used in face to face meetings. Sales reps use a single iPad app to present interactive, engaging sales materials. They can also use that same app to capture meeting notes and update your CRM.
Here are some of the benefits our customers have experienced when using iPad and smartphones to assist with face to face selling:
You may be interested to see some of the situations where mobile sales tools can be useful. Here are some examples:
Your sales reps will already share brochures and fact sheets with customers. An iPad app allows you to do this share electronically by email.
Sales reps can present a new kind of content to prospects. The iPad allows them to show more interactive and engaging content than is possible with paper. This content can include animations, videos, text, images and more.
Staff will usually use a laptop for entering information into the enterprise CRM, long after the meeting has finished. This leads to inaccurate or dumbed down notes. An iPad solution can allow your sales team to record notes directly into the CRM during the meeting, or immediately after.
Using the iPad for presenting sales materials means your marketing team can push out new content to the sales team at any time. You can react quickly to changes in the law that affect your products. Or changes in the market that mean you need to push content quickly. You won’t have to wait for long print cycles, and you’ll never end up tossing old paper brochures in the bin.
A printed brochure can’t tell you how long each customer has spent looking at each page.
Sales reps may struggle to get online in meeting places such as hospitals, schools and building sites. Your solution can be designed to work well in this situation. You can have it upload any data once a WiFi or 3G connection is available.
