Sales people can now make sales call more effective, access smart insights about key people and business issues for the sales call, and have access to an optimum sales strategy, right from their smartphone. Dreamforce, the world’s largest software conference, invites attendees to connect with customers, partners and employees in a whole new way.

'According to our buyers, only 13 percent of sales people are adequately prepared in a sales call,' said Donal Daly, CEO, the TAS Group.

The TAS Group today announced it has launched Dealmaker Smart Call Planner on the Salesforce1 AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with customers, partners and employees in a whole new way. Dealmaker Smart Call Planner enables sales teams to have more effective sales calls and progress deals more quickly. It knows about the people in the meeting, what they care about, what business issues they want to discuss, the risks and vulnerabilities in the sales opportunity and recommends the right selling strategy for every call. The combination of collaboration, notifications and the built-in insights, in real-time on the smartphone, aligns the seller, support team and sales managers on how to get the most from every sales call. The announcement was made today at salesforce.com’s Dreamforce 2013 in San Francisco.

Leveraging the power of Salesforce1 Customer Platform, the first CRM platform for developers, ISVs, end users, admins and customers moving to the new social, mobile and connected cloud, Dealmaker Smart Call Planner is immediately available for test drive and deployment on the Salesforce1 AppExchange at http://www.appexchange.com.

“According to our buyers, only 13 percent of sales people are adequately prepared in a sales call,” said Donal Daly, CEO, the TAS Group. “Sales people often don't have the time to effectively plan for the sales call. Now with Dealmaker Smart Call Planner, they know about the business issues that the customer wants to discuss, the preferences and issues for each of the people in the meeting and related to the opportunity, and the sales strategy to use to advance the deal – right from their smartphone – available in real-time for anyone on the sales team attending or supporting the sales call. This makes for more productive sales calls for both the seller and the buyer.”

"The Salesforce1 Customer Platform is game changing for developers and ISVs because it helps them build engaging, next generation apps to connect with customers in a new way," said Mike Rosenbaum, EVP, Salesforce Platform, salesforce.com. "By opening the platform for ISVs, we have made it possible for customers to get their apps and data in one place, where everything is connected and in the context of their business."
