Salespod's integration with Google Places streamlines data entry to nearly zero.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Salespod, Inc., the maker of the agile field sales and retail merchandising automation tool Salespod, has announced the integration with Google Places. The integration allows outside sales representatives to identify and import business details for new prospects in their immediate vicinity with a single click, greatly streamlining the data entry process, and eliminating costly input errors.
Salespod is changing the way that companies manage their mobile workforce by leveraging mobile technologies to greatly streamline how information moves between the field and the back office. Known as a “task oriented swiss army knife for the mobile workforce,” Salespod drives efficiency in the mobile workforce by providing high value functionality on smartphones and tablets. With this latest innovation, Salespod has enabled a higher level agility and accuracy within field organizations, and increased the efficiency with which field reps can conduct their sales, and marketing activities.
“This integration with Google Places eliminates the need for prospecting reps to ever have to type in new account details," says co-founder of Salespod, Marko Linke, "which not only reduces the time for this task to nearly zero, it means the data will always be entered accurately."
With the new feature, reps using Salespod are able to search for business near them, and with a single tap, import the details for a prospect or customer into their mobile device, which then synchronizes to the cloud based Salespod database. From that instant on, the rep can log activities, collect orders and take photos associated with that client.
Salespod with Google Places integration is available today on Android and iOS based smartphones and tablets. The solution consists of a map enabled web-console where Sales Managers can monitor field activity, and review streaming data in real time, and a mobile component used by reps to access all of their client details and history, and to collect and report orders, photos and flexible form based data.
