Mobile CRM

October 12, 2006

What's mobile CRM? Basically, any high-quality customer management you can perform while not nailed to your chair. The American workforce is increasingly mobile (and we have the devices to prove it!) If both your customers and your employees are mobile, your CRM had better be light on its feet, as well.

Join me next Tuesday (October 17th) at 2:00 pm EST for a Webinar entitled, "Increase Sales Productivity and Revenue with Mobile CRM." The event is sponsored by Sage Software.
