Greenwood Village, CO, United States, 2011/10/27 - In an effort to make harried, on-the-road salespeople more productive, CIBER launched the CIBER Mobile Sales App today - CIBER.com. NYSE: CBR
It brings real-time account, product and activity information from the SAP® ERP and SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) applications to Apple iPads or Apple iPhones, which salespeople often carry as they travel.
Using the app, road warriors can tap corporate systems to access:
• Product catalogs and product details;
• Customer records, such as latest order and invoices;
• A shopping basket for creating sales orders and sales quotes;
• An invoice display;
• Analyses, KPI reports and more.
The app also helps salespeople stay connected with customers by providing customer locations, maps, contact information and a handy store-finder function. Built on the Sybase® Unwired Platform, the app gives users a tool for more effective sales management while out of the office.
CIBER created the Mobile Sales App to showcase its mobility expertise, which includes app development as well as strategic consulting. Mobile technology investments are among the top three CIO priorities for 2011, according to recent research from Gartner, and CIBER has been helping companies worldwide align business strategy with mobile technology for more than six years.
“Many organizations have not yet identified how to leverage current investments in ERP and CRM software beyond corporate walls and make such systems available to employees who work remotely,” said Michael Niestroy, the CIBER director of innovation in Australia, who was responsible for developing this first of several planned mobility apps. “Customers can benefit from the investment we’ve made and incorporate the Mobile Sales App with little integration effort into their SAP environments. In addition, CIBER has the tools and methodologies in place to help our customers develop their own mobile strategy and roadmap.”
