Mobile sales strategies give you a massive advantage over lugging a laptop with you; everything can be accomplished with an app nowadays.

However there are over 867,530 apps in the app stores so it’s going to be hard to find the right one.

Before we jump in, I just wanted to let you know about the Tactical Sales Chrome App, which can be found here. Install it on your Chrome dashboard and always stay up to date with our latest blogs!

We’ve put together what we think are the top 5 app’s to help you close that deal today.

Docu-sign

Paper has the habit of tearing easily or taking on the shape of whatever it gets wrapped around, it’s a headache and we also need to consider the forest.

Docu-sign has done just that a created and all in one package that eliminates the need for sending and receiving contracts or signed paper work. You can send multiple contracts at once and add a whole host of markers and tags to guide the receiver of the contract.

Pricing: Varies

Salespod

This allows for teams and managers to track all round progress and success of the field sales team. Things that can be tracked are:

– Location

– Sales Sheets & Order forms

– Invoices/Surveys

Orders can also be fulfilled via the app with order adjustments to suit the needs. Everything is tracked real time so teams can find each other and managers have access to files, forms and orders throughout the day.

Square

You may have heard of this company, they are a mobile payments system co-founded by Jack Dorsey or the Co-Founder of Twitter. The app lets you take payments via smart phone or tablet all with the security of a large high street bank.

Think of it as carrying around your card payment machine and the cash register.

The idea is you can have the system setup in store or the office, once a customer comes in payments can be made but if you need to get out into the field you can pick up your phone and plug in the adapter and receive payments anywhere.

Combine this with Docu-sign and you’ve got a portable system that gives the ability for any field sales team to close deals in far less time.

Pricing: Varies

Profit Story

This is a price adjustment app for your smart phone. The app gives you breakdowns on margins, unit costs, break even points and much more – making rational decision making on discounting so much easier.

Sometimes in the heat of the moment, out of the office or comfort we make calls on ill-advised decisions just to get the order. Sometimes these are great calls and others they can cost the company money.

Simply throwing in some numbers can give you multiple options and calculations for creating the best possible deals there and then – deal closed.

Pricing: $1.99

Qvidian

An all in one sales enablement app/software that allows for constant sales cycle monitoring and education. Some sales teams may need guidance and education to close a deal or at least go further into the cycle, the app gives you the ability to push the this information to each member on the team.

Data tracking for CRM use is another aspect of this app, by putting together data into an understandable and manageable system of metrics the sales team can begin to understand the cycles problems.

Bottlenecks and marketing results are all measured via this app and ultimately it gives everyone an all seeing eye over the process.

Pricing: Varies

Rapportive: Technically a Google Chrome app for Gmail

This app is something of great use for sales teams that use Cold Calling 2.0 as a process. Rapportive is an app that, when email contacts are added, finds social profiles of them. If the owner of a business is in fact on LinkedIn, Rapportive will find them in real time and give you the option to connect further.

It’s also a great way to find email addresses of targeted people in companies, whilst also being free to download and use. More on this next week!
