If you’re a relatively tech-savvy salesperson, you know the power of the tablet. This mobile device has revolutionized the way that salespeople do business. The Apple iPad is a favorite among wealth advisors and CIOs alike, but what can be done to make this sales enablement tool even more efficient?
Apps are the gateway to a more productivity in and out of the workplace. Some apps for the iPad are free, while others require a small fee. Every day, more apps are being added to the Apple iTunes store, many of which are explicitly designed for salespeople who want to increase their efficiency. Here are some of the most helpful go-to apps for iPad users.
The Seismic app for the iPad is a must-have for sales professionals. This content management system can give salespeople the up-to-date collateral they need on their iPad while out in the field. Best of all, company files are stored securely in the cloud, eliminating the need for concern.
Most Salesforce users wish they could access the CRM on the go – and now they can. A Salesforce1 app has been developed for the iPad, which provides access to everything from Contacts to Chatter.
You know those moments when you really need to scan an important document without a scanner in sight? The DocScan app helps you out when you’re in a jam. Scan a document with your camera, then upload it to a cloud or send it in an email.
When you’re handed a business card, you want to make sure that contact information is stored in a safe place. The CamCard app allows you to scan each business card, then pull the information from it into your Contacts on your iPad.
5. GoTo Meeting
You can’t always be in a conference room when you have a meeting scheduled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t attend! GoTo Meeting allows you to attend events scheduled on the website via iPad.
Salespeople are always looking for new ways to sell and close deals, and iPad apps are helping them make it happen. As sales enablement techniques become more digital, it’s critical to look at the options available to you. Even if you aren’t interested in splurging on a bunch of downloadable apps, there are many free ones out there that can make your job easier.
