There is no denying that the future lays with wearables. Whether they’re on our wrist, feet, arms, legs, even ingested, they are going to have a major impact on how we conduct our day to day lives. We are already starting to see the benefits in healthcare, so it’s only natural that this type of technology spills over into the world of business.
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.
We’re going to conduct a little experiment. Pick up your smartphone and, without turning it on, give it a good look. What do you notice? It’s probably gotten larger over the last few years. Now, activate it - how many unseen notifications do you have? A dozen? More? Missed calls, emails, text messages, Facebook messenger alerts, WhatsApp messages, calendar updates, social media alerts, even your CRM is pinging you with a task alert that you’ve missed a 90-day follow up on a not-so-important prospect.
This application allows sales reps to report on tasks in real time directly on their watch, via voice dictation. The tool synchronises the data entered into other devices, combining all the information on the sales rep’s wrist.
The first sales management software integrated into sales representatives’ smartwatches will be presented during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from the 2nd to the 5th of March 2015.
