Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Salespod, Inc., the maker of the field sales and retail merchandising automation tool Salespod, reported today that it has expanded its offering to provide several new features for managing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) around the execution of field activity by outside sales, marketing and retail merchandising reps. “We typically provide enhancement releases at least once a month to make sure that the product continues to provide new value to our customers," said Matthew Brogie, Salespod’s GM for North America. Brogie added, “Over the past few releases we have been adding new capabilities to help managers measure and manage their field operations.”
Salespod’s Field Activity Management solution is used to drive market penetration, retail execution, promotion compliance and product distribution, while giving managers real time access to data collected by their reps, including time and map-based location data for all field activities.

The tools include activity monitors and statistics summaries, in additional to the ability to quickly rank the team across a range of measurements. “These tools are just the beginning of a product roadmap focused on KPI and analytics," said Brogie. These new features build on an already powerful system that leverages consumer grade smartphones and tablets and a web enabled back-end to enable ‘Zero IT’ implementations.
