Why Mobile CRM – Driven by the numbers or coolness factor?


Share on LinkedIn

Yes, I admit it, I have a strong technology streak in my DNA. I hadSalesLogix-Mobile-Success-with-CRM to have one of the first IBM PC XT’s back in 1983 because I was tired of managing floppy disks. Over the years we have seen great technology companies – Novell , Microsoft, Google, Apple – each I believe providing an improved environment for businesses to compete and be more productive.

In the late 90’s having contacts on your mobile phone was a big deal. So when some new technology or software solution appears I jump on it. I purchased an early Apple iPad and then the Verizon Droid mobile phone. Now I’m using the Verizon iPhone 4 to stay in contact with people and my business.

Sage SalesLogix has been making leaps of improvements and providing improved benefits for a business using CRM year after year, quarter after quarter. With a solid core architecture in place and with new and improved architect/developer tools you’ll be seeing faster developed functionality arrive to the marketplace.

Recently the new Sage SalesLogix Mobile has been released and all the indicators point to additional benefits for the business using the Sage SalesLogix CRM solution.
