They can update customer data using their CRM installed smartphone reducing the stress of being away from the office.

How do you track your sales teams activity? How do you get real time updates from them other can calling? Do you ever feel like you are struggling managing your sales team?
Do you worry thinking how to sort the lead data/information that constantly pours in?
Do you really think it is feasible for the sales representatives to meet you at office after every client meeting to let you know the updates?

How can you know the clients that are closer to closing the deal?

Empowering your team with a faster accessibility will definitely bring higher employee activity leading to increased sales loop closures. Mobile devices can get a faster accessibility and sales executive find it a very convenient way to communicate with their prospect customers even when they are travelling.
It enables the employee or executive to access all customer data within a much shorter time. The call button option in the mobile CRM allows them to call the customer without needing to type their number every time when they call.
