Top Sales and CRM Apps From Salesforce, SAP and More
Salespeople have to stay on the move to make the deal, and now have more freedom than ever to do so. Mobile devices can come with tools to help at every moment of the sales process, from pulling up important lead information from CRM systems to displaying business statistics. Here are four innovative sales applications to step up your sales team.
Through this website, you can create online sales proposals to send to your clients. Proposal templates can be customized and saved. Because the proposal is delivered online, you can now monitor and analyze much more information about the deal. You can check which client viewed the proposal and for how long. Instantaneous notifications inform you even about which section of the proposal is most seen. This allows you to focus on the right customer in real-time as soon as the potential buyer views or adds a comment to the site.
Packages start at $19 per month and go up to $79 per month, each with a 30 day free trial.
Sybase Mobile Sales
This is a CRM app that allows access to SAP sales data from a mobile at any location. You can receive all SAP alerts or notifications. The app works on iPhones and Windows mobile phones, while a version for Blackberry will be released later this year.
The app is $15 per user per month, or $405 for a perpetual license.
Mimiran Sales Compass
This software organizes and analyzes your business sales statistics. Your sales representatives are provided with all the necessary market information. Selling prices can be optimized among the sales team with the software’s analysis of historical pricing data and competitor’s rates. Sales decisions can be made more quickly and efficiently with Sales Compass Target Pricing; it can dramatically reduce the time needed for back-and-forth deal approvals.
The app costs $99 a month for the first user, and $49 for each additional user.
Salesforce.com’s customer relations management solution, as released today at Salesforce’s Cloudforce 2010 conference, is now available for Salesforce’s 77,300 customers. The application allows employees to maintain business profiles, make status updates, and collaborate. Client information can also be kept and updated. Indeed, it is Facebook for business. The uses of Chatter may expand further into business needs through the ChatterExchange category of AppExchange, where apps can be downloaded. Some 50 apps are already available, such as FinancialForce Accounting Chatterbox (accounting software), and Cloud Apps Carbon ’10 (helps to find ways to reduce operation costs).
Salesforce Chatter access is free to all existing Salesforce customers. Otherwise, Chatter-only licenses are available for $15 per user per month.
