"Desktop Sales Manager has been the sales automation choice of thousands of fiercely individualist sales professionals” states Glyn Meek, partner at Software on Sailboats. “With Version 6 we’ve grown from helping gifted soloists to helping the whole choir. This is amazing technology at an amazing price.”
Serving Two Masters
Sales management looks to sales automation to provide very current and vital information for business decisions. It is difficult and counter productive to get remote and mobile sales professionals to stop selling long enough to find a hotspot or Internet connection to update sales information. Harried and hurried sales professionals understandably demand speed, ease of use, and anytime-anywhere availability from sales automation software.
Embedding Microsoft’s .NET technology in Desktop Sales Manager Version 6 satisfied both needs - a local application running on a personal computer satisfies the sales professional’s need for fast response, ease of use, and always-ready availability. Microsoft’s .NET technology also provides the underlying store-and-forward technology required to share sales information through a central database once a mobile sales rep finally slows down long enough to connect to the Internet.
Sales Data Center - Making It Affordable
Providing the backend for client-server sales automation applications has often proven difficult and expensive. It often involves buying servers and software, establishing virtual private networks, and the staff or consultants to set it up and keep it running. Together these costs can make this a difficult decision for a small-to-medium sized business or sales team.
Software On Sailboats hosts and operates a shared Internet database - the Sales Data Center for Desktop Sales Manager users. There is no software to buy, consultants to call, or software to set up. Desktop Sales Manager stores and retrieves sales pipelines from the Sales Data Center, and access costs less than $0.20 per day – 10% of the cost of a web-based on-demand CRM application.
Free Upgrades and Trial Available
Desktop Sales Manager Version 6 is now available online for free trial and purchase and through the Software On Sailboats website http://www.SoftwareOnSailboats.com. There is no charge to upgrade from Version 5 to Version 6.
