improveit! 360 Introduces the Home Improvement Sales Rep Mobile App

Columbus, OH, January 24, 2014 --(PR.com)-- improveit! 360 announces the release of a powerful mobile app to help home improvement companies have a more efficient and effective sales team.

As the leader in business management software for remodelers and contractors, improveit! 360 developed the Sales Rep Mobile App to give sales pros immediate access to leads, appointments, reminders, and their personal to-do lists. The app is free to users of improveit! 360 and available for download on Apple and Android devices.

The Sales Rep Mobile App eliminates waiting, duplicate work, and manual entry so your sales team has time to focus on homeowners to close more deals. "With our new mobile app, your reps have fast, reliable access to vital information – in the prospect's home or on the road," said Justin Showers, Director of Marketing for improveit! 360. "The two-way sync between the app and office means they get instant updates on their phone. Any changes they make – like providing appointment results – get automatically pushed to the home office so the job can be scheduled."

Showers added, "As your reps send data back to the system, you'll have real-time information giving you accurate reporting views and you'll make better business decisions."

"Your sales team doesn't want to wait until they're back in the office to update the CRM system, entering notes and results by hand all over again. This time-saving app lets them update leads, appointment results, notes, tasks, and upload photos on the fly," added Alyssa Myers, Product Manager for improveit! 360.

The mobile app allows sales reps to work offline. If there's no reception or Wi-Fi, your team continually has access to all essential information so they can track appointments, follow-up with leads, schedule or reschedule appointments, and maintain customer relationships from the field.

Each rep is only given access to their leads, their schedule, and their personal task list. Company owners can customize how much or how little information is shown to each one. Team members have access to their own personal sales performance metrics – by the week or month – such as sales volume, net volume, average net sale, demo rates, and sold rates. "When your reps can track their numbers they're going to be more motivated to hit their goals," said Showers.

For each appointment, reps can view their schedule and the prospect's product of interest, see the Google Street View of the prospect’s home, get a map to the location, upload photos, call the lead, result the appointment and notify the office. If the prospect doesn't buy, the rep creates a new marketing reminder, calls them at a later date, or schedules another appointment.

They can access their To-Do list to see reminders like: send a quote, pull a permit, make a follow-up call, or send an e-mail.

"Help your sales professionals get more done, in less time, and win more deals with our Sales Rep Mobile App, available free to our customers," said Myers. "They’ll be more productive and willing to use the system that organizes your contracting business and boosts your bottom line."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
