Front Row Solutions Releases New Version of its Sales Pro App for Access to its CRM by Sales Representatives in the Field -- App helps sales reps boost productivity by accessing customer relationship management system on iOS, Android, and Blackberry
Fort Collins, Colo. -- Front Row Solutions (FRS), a customer relationship management (CRM) system built around the needs of sales representatives and sales managers, has released the newest version of its Front Row Sales Pro Application for iOS, Android, and Blackberry devices. The app combines the fastest, easiest mobile reporting tool available with real-time, robust information for sales managers. Sales Pro allows sales reps to spend less time on administrative tasks, gives them productivity tools and customer insights on the go, and frees them up to do what they do best -- sell!
Front Row Sales Pro is unique, built for sales reps by sales reps. FRS heard the complaints from reps in the field that existing CRM systems were too difficult to use, and spent four years continuously improving Sales Pro to fit the needs of sales reps and sales managers. The result is an app that reps can learn in minutes, then use to complete a sales report in less than 30 seconds, giving the rep and the sales manager real-time information on every call, customer contact, and sale.
Front Row Solutions customers experience a 95% compliance rate among sales reps using Front Row Sales Pro, and FRS offers a 90-day trial free of charge to prove this level of compliance. "Because of its ease of use and sales rep engaging features, I get 100% compliance from my sales reps every day," says Michael Gaerter, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at RouteOne Canada.
Version one of Front Row Sales Pro focused on fast, easy mobile reports from the field. This new, updated version provides sales reps with key productivity tools and customer insights while on the go. It allows sales reps to review account information on each client, prepare for their next sales call, and send a report to the sales manager in less than 30 seconds after a call has ended, from any mobile device. Sales Pro's better follow up system means increased sales for the company and increased productivity and commissions for the rep.
With Front Row Sales Pro, the sales manager is virtually in the field with their reps, instantly receiving sales reports after each call. The new version gives sales managers up-to-the-minute information from their sales reps after each contact, in real-time. Sales Pro allows the sales manager to work closely with their reps to improve individual performance and customize training for their sales team. Now the sales manager can know exactly what is going on in the field at all times.
