It’s that time of year again. September’s long-awaited return brings months of guesswork to a conclusion with the official Apple iOS 11, iPhone 8 and iPhone X releases.
Along with the iPhone 7, Apple’s iOS 10 release has been its most anticipated to date. Bursting with a host of new features, it’s got everyone excited, especially business professionals. It has the ability to round off the edges of the trickier daily tasks, making work that little more manageable. Take ForceManager for example…

After the overwhelming reception we received following the release of our mobile application for the Android Wear platform, we’re pleased to announce that continued work in the wearable space means our CRM application is now available on the Apple Watch.
Renowned for its simplicity and ease of use, Apple is undoubtedly one of the leading and most recognized brands in the world used by many high-tech innovators. Here at ForceManager, we identify with Apple’s values and our application delivers a powerful yet user-friendly experience. We believe that Apple and ForceManager go hand in hand and that we have designed an application that is perfectly in sync with Apple’s vision.
For years, field sales reps have loathed their company CRM and the management team mandating it’s daily use. After a long day of meetings and prospecting, the last thing they want to do is data entry. Plus, once their notes are in the CRM the data is hardly useful when they’re back in the field the next day. Once they’re on the road, opening their laptop, connecting to WIFI and accessing their previously entered data is a rarely a worthwhile activity. To the field sales professional, the desktop CRM is little more than a burden - a mandatory repository stealing their hard-earned relationship information and mostly beneficial to management and the customer service teams.
The CRM market continues to explode into the cloud. According to Gartner Research, the global CRM market grew 13.3% in 2014, increasing to $23.2 billion from $20.4 billion in 2013. Most notably however was the fact that nearly half (47%) of all CRM software revenue generated last year came from SaaS-based CRMs. It’s clear that more and more companies are trusting their CRM to the cloud rather than a private server protected by a firewall.
Typically, when we think about CRM software, we think about large sales teams and big organisations managing multi-million dollar accounts. Terms and phrases like implementations, buy-in and change management come to mind as managers pour over the data to predict future revenues and move the share price up a bit.
