The growth of any economic activity primarily depends on the ability of the sales force to convert the company’s commercial policy into results. To achieve this, it is necessary to have tools that allow better optimization and improvement of working methods. The technological breakthrough brought by tablets has enabled the emergence of new applications targeting sales performance and optimization of all factors allowing sales to end: Applications of mobile sales enablement …
Born in the United States, the concept involves using digital tools on a tablet to optimize all of the factors that allow a sale to end. More and more commercial organizations are driving this digital transformation of sales teams as a high potential growth driver. To understand some of the “key growth factors” of mobile sales enablement, we suggest you review 10 good reasons to adopt it permanently.
1. Alignment of Sales and Marketing Teams
One of the first customizations provided by mobile sales enablement is to align sales and marketing teams. All media and content produced by Marketing is made available to Seller automatically and in real time (by connecting a tablet). This way each vendor can take advantage of all the wealth of product support and share them with their customers. In the other direction and field, everyone also has the possibility of notifying marketing teams immediately. This short two-way link between two teams strengthens cohesion and teamwork. This new win-win relationship keeps their activities within a good range.

Working on tablets, a strong tenet of mobile sales enablement is to deeply rev up the relationships you have with your customers. The interface you share allows the customer to engage, engage and provide them with a unified, simpler and more successful experience in the sales process. Hence the tablet is the central element. It is he who forms the link between buyer and seller. The seller has nothing to hide: everything is transparent and the customer is invited to enter the brand’s sphere of influence through the use of a simple and intuitive application. This new interaction in favor of customer engagement results in better appropriation of the benefits of your offer.
3. Your sales support always available and up to date
Regardless of your preparation and experience, there is always an element of the unexpected in a client presentation. However, if there really is an embarrassing situation, it is the moment when the seller, to answer a question, begins to eagerly search the presentation medium only to manage to find out a version “from last year”. Does. It is still relevant. A mobile sales enablement application ensures that you always have all the information published from when you were last connected to your network. Instant search and bookmarks take the hassle out of scrolling through folders. The logical links that marketing can create between documents ultimately facilitate cross-selling. This new trust in your tool will be directly perceived by your customer which will maintain a better image of your brand.
4. Training tailored to your availability and your needs
It can be difficult to block out a sales team for three days for training, especially if you are unsure of how the training should be implemented. Integrated directly into your mobile sales enablement application, each salesperson can have a “training” function continuously available. Thanks to the latter, he learns and validates his achievements at his own pace and according to his own schedule. Very easy to make quizzes allow you to test your knowledge and, if necessary, to browse through the training medium again. The organization of information and internal competitions makes it possible to promote access to training, initiate full team progress and enter a cycle of continuous improvement of your human resources.
5. One Application 100% Available, On & Offline
Since it is not always possible to have a good internet connection on public transport or at the customer’s premises, the seller can always rely on their mobile sales enablement application. It is available even without an internet connection, with the same richness of content. The information feedback and presentation sharing functions are also fully functional and will operate once the network is found.

7. Data Collection from the Field
In the field, your sales force handles a vast amount of important information: strategic customer information, competitor information, actual implementation of a service or product, field overview, and more. A very large part of this information is not exploited, or at best, amplified, but not for the right interlocutor. A mobile sales enablement application helps to structure and simplify this approach. Classification of reports by sender directs the information to the right people. Since these are better taken into account, it is a win-win circle that engages in the alignment of your teams.
