Let’s face it, large sales teams don’t always have an easy time.
On one hand, they have strength in numbers for promoting your company, making connections, following up with prospective clients and actively bringing in revenue for your products and services which is awesome.
On the other, collaboration is a big challenge. They need access to the latest marketing material on the go and a flexible process that will let them adapt themselves to your clients’ needs. Plus they need to be highly organized to make sense of all the customer data, figures, and marketing material they handle every day and juggle travel plans with ease.
Whew. But as they say, there’s an app (or five) for that. These five apps for sales teams will go a long way in helping them give it their best:
Sales teams need a shot of motivation on a regular basis to pitch their infectious enthusiasm to customers. Nitro is an app that uses gamification to introduce the element of competition and reward achievement. You have individual and team challenges, levels, competitions and rewards that will spur your sales team to greater heights.
2. LinkedIn Sales Navigator
This application lets you take advantage of your LinkedIn connections to build your business. LinkedIn Sales Navigator
gives you a ‘social intelligence solution’ to gain insights, find and reach decision-makers and close deals faster. You can integrate it with Salesforce and also use LinkedIn information to identify leads, create reports, and receive real-time updates for clients and prospective clients.
3. Show On The Cloud PortFolio App
Show On The Cloud builds custom portfolio apps for sales teams (web and mobile).
So what can you do with a portfolio app?
- In-app notifications let you broadcast messages directly to the sales team’s smart phones.
- Offline viewing is a major pull for those who travel frequently and don’t have access to strong data networks.
- The Show On The Cloud backend powering the app lets you update your portfolio on demand. You don’t need to resubmit the app and wait for days every time you have new, exciting things to add.
- You can download assets from the app itself as it is synced with the backend.
