Use Mobile Phone Apps To Sharpen Your Focus And Boost Productivity
Okay, your finance director and IT department might still be insisting on everyone keeping the old mobile bricks for now, but there is a compelling argument for investing in smart phones for the whole sales team.
Doing business today can involve processing a lot of information, so it’s easy to get completely overwhelmed by it all and loose focus on what’s important: hitting the sales targets!!! Mobile apps can help us keep focussed and boost our overall levels of productivity.
The mobile apps industry has come a long way in the past few years, and now as we kick into the second quarter of 2010/2011, there are apps for pretty much everything:
Games / Entertainment / Utilities / Social Networking / Music / Productivity / Lifestyle / Reference / Travel / Sports / Navigation / Health & Fitness / News / Photography / Finances / Business / Education / Weather / Books / Medical.
Despite Blackberry and Nokia handsets being used more in business at the moment, the iPhone leads the way in business apps. You can now view opportunities, tracks leads and manage your pipeline – all whilst on the go. Check out their dedicated webpage for business apps, which includes apps for Salesforce and Oracle: http://www.apple.com/iphone/business/apps-for-iphone/
