Put a single presentation on the cloud and 10 salespeople will eventually turn it into 10 if not 100 different versions. At first glance, cloud-based systems seem to be part of the problem, not part of the solution.
But there are ways to harness the cloud, take back control, and keep tabs on which of our materials are being used most often and most effectively.
As you build mobile apps for your sales team, look for the following:
+ Synchronization: Updates/edits pushed to devices automatically
+ Ease of use: Accommodates your least technical salesperson
+ Future-proof: Expandable and customizable
The cloud will hold more and more of our applications and data. If we can’t escape it, we might as well be in control of it.
