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."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
