The most successful sales executives often are at their best when not at their desk. While most successful while making face-time with clients and prospects, juggling phone calls with client calls can get cumbersome.
These three tech tools and tips can help improve efficiency for today’s road warrior sales exec:
- Keep a robust database. Whether Outlook, Salesforce, Act!, even Plaxo or Google Contacts, salesmen and their teams make a living through connections and networking. Downloading the latest, updated apps for your contact database of choice puts your contact list at your fingertips.
- Use a GPS device. While Waze and Google Maps are great mobile applications, a dedicated GPS frees you to travel safely, and keep your phone free for communications.
- Bring on a “smart assistant.” Apps like ThinkRite Assistant make joining meetings a cinch. An alert for a meeting already in your calendar pops up. Then, one click and you’ve joined the event. No more hunting for or dialing phone numbers or passwords while on the road.
