    Learn how to mobilise your business with emerging apps and technology in Smarter Business’ new e-book

    “If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain.”

    In modern business, your sales team cannot always expect clients to come to them. And while the internet and ecommerce has made it easier to take orders and work with clients at a distance, securing that initial contract can often require off-site meetings and travel.

    Cargo Crew Founder Felicity Rodgers and Client Services Director Narelle Craig are using mobile technology to be more productive in the business.

    In many industries the travelling sales rep is still the cornerstone of business, visiting distant outlets to share samples, check stock levels and build productive relationships. And each client visit can result in plenty of admin to capture information and, hopefully, seal the deal with a signed contract.

    Less time spent travelling back and forth to the office to carry out this necessary admin can mean more time meeting new or existing clients, closing deals and taking orders. Plus the right suite of apps and digital workflows can reduce the need for some of those face-to-face meetings while increasing the speed of the deal, by completing more tasks remotely and in real time – even signing that carefully prepared contract on the dotted line.

    Without a clear strategy, your business risks people solving these problems independently, with their own devices and apps. This can lead to incompatible and potentially insecure workflows, particularly if their individual tools don’t integrate with the rest of the team.

    Smarter Business’ latest e-book – Seal the deal on the road [LINK TO LANDING PAGE] – is your guide to planning a complete mobile technology strategy: the products, policies and processes you’ll need to empower the team and the business to work more effectively in the field.

    Start preparing your own mobile strategy with our free e-book: Seal the Deal on the Road.
