Entrepreneur’s are constantly on the go, whether they’re meeting with clients, flying out to give a presentation, or running to a team training. With this in mind, mobile access to sales systems aren’t just a nice to have — they’re a necessity.
But besides company software, salespeople can also download productivity, educational, travel, and other just plain useful apps to optimize their time on the road.
Here are 8 of our favorites.
Need to jot notes at a meeting or conference? Evernote has you covered. The mobile app also tags notes by location, so you can easily place a particular memo if you forgot to add a title.
Not into written notes? Dragon automatically translates voice memos into text. Ditto that for text messages and emails
Salespeople collect a ton of business cards. But what if they leave them at the hotel? Scores of potential prospects lost in one fell swoop. CamCard digitizes cards with a simple photo and automatically saves the information to your phone’s contacts.
No need to pull out your laptop to work on your pitch deck. Just download Keynote and unleash your creative artistry.
Need to send or receive a large file when you don’t have a laptop at your disposal? Enter Dropbox’s mobile app. Never see a “this file is too large to send” error message from your phone again.
6) eSignature app
When a prospect is ready to commit to a contract, a rep is going to get them to sign, quickly. If your organization uses an eSignature system such as DocuSign or Adobe EchoSign, make sure to download the corresponding mobile app to enable prospects to sign wherever, whenever, and however.
7) Doc Scan
Snap a picture of a document, and get a neatly packaged PDF or JPG in return.
Toggling back and forth among flight confirmations, car rental information, and restaurant reservations when you’re traveling can be annoying. To make your day that much easier, TripIt synthesizes your various daily confirmations into a centralized itinerary.
