5/4/2012"ProVisions Software’s New Mobile Sales Desk Smartphone App To Improve Customer Service, Drive Additional Revenues"

May 4, 2012 — ProVisions Software today announced its new Mobile Sales Desk application for smartphones, an on-demand business tool that helps food processors and distributors improve customer service and generate additional revenues. The ProVisions smartphone app provides a set of convenient tools and screens that let you access the customer and product information you need to respond immediately to a customer inquiry.

The Mobile Sales Desk app establishes a secure link to the ProVisions Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software running on the host server and then, at the touch of the screen, and lets you view customer contact or product information, on-hand inventory counts, promotions, month-to-date (MTD) sales and gross profit (GP)―even that day’s sales, total estimated GP % and delivery routes.

Kristine Brown, Project Manager for ProVisions said, “We listened to our customers, more and more of which were integrating Apple iPhones, Androids and other smartphones into their day-to-day businesses. The new ProVisions app offers distributors anywhere, anytime access to their business information and management software―whether they’re working in or outside the office―so they can be more responsive to their customers.”

The Mobile Sales Desk follows on ProVisions’ announcement of full compatibility with the Apple iPad and other tablet PCs. No matter where you are―at the client’s site or vacationing on a sunny island, if you’ve got your iPad, you’ve got your business too with ProVisions. Enter orders, confirm product availability, check order status or access ProVisions’ integrated Business Intelligence (BI) tool to monitor real-time key performance indicators (KPIs). The options are unlimited!

“Companies are looking for ways to stand out, to provide the best service possible,” Brown added. “Sales executives and business owners that have 'on-demand' access to their business systems have a marked advantage. As new business mobility tools and platforms emerge, ProVisions is committed to helping our clients leverage all that these devices have to offer.”
