The Seller's Perspective
Outdoor Living Brands, a SalesNOW from AT&T customer, is a franchisor that specializes in transforming outdoor spaces into comfortable living environments. Its companies build porches, design landscape lighting, develop pest control methods and more. So, naturally, its sales personnel are often on the move.
"From 22 different solutions that met our basic criteria, and three that met our specific set of criteria, the cost to deploy SalesNOW from AT&T was only a third of the cost of other solutions. Any company that is not looking at this product should immediately put it into the mix and evaluate it. Not only did we choose the right platform – it has more extensibility than we ever imagined," said Bob Pogue, Director of IT, Outdoor Living Brands.
"Given the growing popularity of tablets for small and large businesses alike, the new SalesNOW App for iPad comes at a perfect time," said Chris Hill, Vice President, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. "SalesNOW from AT&T gives mobile sales professionals exactly what they need to manage customer relationships on the go – using a smartphone, a tablet or both."
"The iPad edition of SalesNOW is our first dedicated tablet version of the application," said Mark Durst, CEO, Interchange Solutions. "Our customers can integrate SalesNOW from AT&T with existing applications on their iPads and customize the solution to meet their specific needs."
The SalesNOW App is available for free from the App Store on iPad and iPhone or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
