The Ultimate Sales Kit, No Equipment Required
Every company wants to know what exactly its employees are doing: are they working hard? Do they waste time on the job? Should I be giving them more work? This especially applies to people working in sales where managers want to know whether the expenses incurred in reimbursing their sales team are actually translating into value (or in this case, clients) added. However, when outdated and archaic methods of time and visit management are used (eg. excel sheets, paper-based notekeeping, etc.), it not only becomes difficult to see the data and analyse the trends but also makes it close to impossible to discern whether there is any benefit being added!
Why FieldSense is a game changer
FieldSense is not one your average “run of the mill” employee tracking apps! Of course it satisfies the basic function of tracking your employees, but it combines customer database management and visit management to create a powerful tool that can be used to generate insights that will offer you revelations about how your organisation functions, from knowing who repeatedly reaches office late to even knowing whether your sales team is over visiting a particular client! Imagine having the ability to both, have organisation-level oversight while, at the same time, being able to deep dive into what a particular sales employee did on a particular day at a particular time! Isn’t this exactly what managers want? And FieldSense offers this to you for free, forever! The first 20 users of your organisation can use FieldSense for free forever! Now that you know what you’re getting, I’m sure that you want to know how exactly you’re getting it.
I’ve got the power!
Understanding how FieldSense works to revolutionise your field operations requires a two-pronged explanation that I will dive into right away!
Customer Database Management. What does it mean?
We’ve covered this topic in detail here, but for the newly initiated, Customer Database Management involves keeping track of your customers: what their name is, where they’re located, contact information, etc. While you could keep track of it on excel (or in an even more drastic way, on paper), it’s likely that there will exist a lack of standardisation of entries with people making data errors, entering incorrect information and so on. Moreover, people won’t be able to update information in real-time thus adding another inconvenience to the proceedings. With FieldSense, all your data will be standardised and almost all individual errors will be minimised. Furthermore, anybody can update information in real-time to create a database that will always be up to date in real-time! And for brownie points, if you store this information on paper, imagine the organisational savings when you switch to a digital database: it’s simple math, paper costs money while FieldSense is completely free!
Visit Management. Another thing to know about
A detailed article exists here, but the gist of it involves coordinating and keeping track of your team’s daily activities, especially when it involves meeting some of your customers or prospects. Once again using excel and paper leads to major inconveniences but additionally so does the communication. A team leader will have to receive periodic updates which a team member may or may not be able to actually provide. FieldSense removes all these unnecessary hassles by creating a standardised scheduling interface. You’ll now be able to schedule visits in advance and comfortably as you’ll be able to see the scheduled work of all your employees at a glance while scheduling visits. It couldn’t be easier! However FieldSense goes one step beyond just this and the next section tells you how.
A + B = AMAZING
What makes FieldSense truly amazing is the fact that it combines Customer Database Management and Visit Management to create an efficiency tool that will leave your competition in the dust because of the growth that you’ll experience. FieldSense allows you to directly schedule visits based on the customer being visited; no longer will you have to first decide on where your team member is going and then track him to see if he’s going to the address (which in itself is difficult to track). With FieldSense, you have an integrated application that will let you schedule your visits to customers, provide your team members with a daily breakdown of their visits, provide route navigation to said visits and let you know when they’re actually in a meeting! All in one interface! Paperless, digital and easy!
