Your sales team is the heart of your business. Every day, these men and women are tasked with pumping out the sales that represent the lifeblood of your business. Properly equipping your outside sales team is essential both to their success and to the success of your organization as a whole.To properly equip your outside sales team for success, focus on thee important elements: hardware, software, and knowledge.
If your outside sales team is as mobile as most, providing them with a mobile computing option is essential. To stay connected with the home office, consider equipping your entire sales force with a notebook computer, tablet, or smartphone.Mobile devices allow your workforce to secure on-the-spot sales, conduct research on the fly, and submit updates and reports from anywhere in the world. Not only does this send a great message to your customers, but it also gives your sales force the tools they need to be as productive and as flexible as possible.
Even the latest notebook computer or tablet becomes nearly useless without appropriate software. If your organization uses proprietary software in the course of conducting business, make sure your outside sales force has access to it on their mobile devices. If your business uses Adagio Accounting, there are a variety of applications designed for a mobile sales force, including Mobile Orders for Adagio and the Webtelligence Salesperson Portal.
In addition to any company-specific software, consider also including other applications your sales force may require to do their jobs efficiently. A word processor, a spreadsheet, and presentation-related software are all worth considering.
