Tactile, the company on a mission to make the world a happier place to work, today announced breakthrough new mobile technology that dramatically improves the daily lives of salespeople. Tact is the award-winning, mobile-first command center designed specifically for field salespeople, combining the tools they use everyday -- phone, email, calendar and Salesforce CRM -- into one seamless mobile experience that works online and offline. Today Tactile is unveiling new products that empower salespeople to achieve significantly higher levels of productivity while on the road, using the unique power of mobile devices.
Today's smartphones and watches offer features that desktop platforms simply cannot match, such as cameras, GPS and real-time push notifications. Tactile is pioneering the mobile-first approach to sales and leveraging these technologies to improve the day-to-day workflow of salespeople as they interact with their customers from the road. Tactile is releasing brand new products as part of its flagship Tact mobile app: Tact Hello, Tact Peek and Tact Go.
Mobile technology can dramatically improve the productivity of salespeople. The Mobile Sales Productivity category recently made its inaugural appearance in the Gartner Hype Cycle for CRM Sales:
"Mobile sales productivity apps will increase sales adoption and improve data quality by using a less intrusive approach to collecting sales data." [Gartner, Hype Cycle for CRM Sales, 2015, Robert P. Desisto, Tad Travis, July 13, 2015] View the report here.
Tactile continues to grow its success with enterprises taking a mobile-first approach to their CRM deployments. New wins include BlueLine Rental and The AES Corporation, a Fortune 200 global power company. These customers join Auto Financial Group, Capalino+Company, Cork Supply and SmartRecruiters and others that have selected Tact since its release in February 2015, as well as thousands of salespeople who have downloaded Tact from the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.
In a recent survey of Tactile customers, salespeople report being able to spend more time selling and less time on administration using Tact, as well as logging more sales activities to Salesforce. In fact, the number one reason that salespeople said they use Tact is to save time inputting sales information to Salesforce.
Tactile is showcasing the latest version of Tact at Salesforce's Dreamforce user conference taking place September 15-18 in San Francisco. Find Tactile at booth W150.
