Growing importance of mobile apps for sales reps

Knowledge base

We here at Letsap understand how essential it is for sales reps to have a mobile device with a mobile app to support their selling, which is why we created our innovative app – LetsOrder Mobile. However, if you’re still on the fence about whether going mobile is going to add value for your sales team, take a look at all of these great benefits that you’ll get by going mobile with LetsOrder.

Stored information

With mobile apps like LetsOrder, multiple team members have the same information on hand at any particular moment in time because everything is stored in one place. Any update made to the system by a team member is available on the app. This keeps misinformation to a minimum. If a person inputs incorrect information, the mistake can be rectified on the spot, in realtime. This is very important in a situation where employees work away from the office on a regular basis.

Mobile sales discussions

When using a mobile device, you have the ability to share your sales information with your colleagues and clients anywhere that is convenient for you. With LetsOrder, you can keep everyone in the loop by updating them via email. If you need to notify more than one person, you can easily do so by adding a cc email address. This means that people do not have to visit your office to find out information or discuss an order. You can show orders and quotations you have placed by simply accessing the LetsOrder Mobile sales app from a mobile device and emailing it.

Customer relationships become closer in proximity

The use of a mobile device usually necessitates that you get close to whoever you are talking about a product to. Proximity can make a client feel professionally closer to you, which in turn helps them to trust you more. It allows you to create good customer relationships. A mobile device is light and handheld with the screen still large enough for two or more people to comfortably view your products. LetsOrder allows you to show your client what the product looks like. If the image has been saved on the product in Sage Pastel then LetsOrder Mobile will conveniently display it for you.

Streamlined operations

Mobile sales apps are a wonderful tool for creating an organised environment. Streamlining operations involves using one app or tool to do many things that are usually done individually via large amounts of paperwork. LetsOrder Mobile is one of these all-in-one tools. You can use it to take orders, create quotes, store customers, review daily sales operations, and more. A mobile sales app thus saves you time by putting many functions into one, meaning no going back-and-forth with multiple systems. It also saves you money by avoiding the purchase of multiple software programs while one mobile sales app can do the job just as well.

Client engagement

Having a mobile sales app as part of your sales strategy allows you to focus on the client more than on the sale itself. All of the paperwork you usually keep separate is put into one convenient system which allows you to forget about keeping everything together and instead talk to the client. Engagement can also take place when you get the client involved in looking at the screen, handpicking from product images they see, and allowing them to see how you place their orders. With LetsOrder, you can listen to your client and make special note of their needs. If you need to add additional information, narration and comments can be added.

Know your clients

A mobile sales app tool that allows you to keep track of clients and their connections to your company like LetsOrder does, will help maintain customer relationships more easily. Clients will feel wanted if they realise that you remember that they ordered specific products or looked at certain products more frequently than others. If clients consistently have to repeat themselves then you seem to look less professional and interested in them as a client. LetsOrder Mobile allows you to have all of the client’s information on hand anywhere, anytime.

Access on the go

Since all of your information is compacted, you have access to all of your important documents while you are on the way to clients or already at their offices. This means that you have all of the documentation you need in digital format. If you want to place an order, LetsOrder allows you to access and create a unique document that you can complete and place immediately. Furthermore, if you want to look up a customer, LetsOrder allows you to have that information on your person at all times, by filtering and viewing your customers by sales codes.

Enhance your professional image

When you have a synchronised team all using the same system, such as LetsOrder Mobile, when meeting with clients, it lends itself to an image of professionalism. It shows that you are well-organised, in sync with each other, and ahead of the times. When you move alongside technological developments, you are more trusted by clients to provide them the same great product innovations as what you are using. When each team member carries with them a tatty, outdated paper catalogue or files that are falling apart, it seems unprofessional and not trustworthy.

Get ordering

Now that you know the benefits of using a mobile app to enhance your sales processes, it is time to start using an effective automated system for your sales orders. Our LetsOrder Mobile App is the perfect companion for sales reps on the road. Start enjoying anywhere, anytime, realtime sales invoice, orders and quotation generation with LetsOrder.
