Enabling your sales team with Mobile CRM

Posted 9:40 a.m., Friday 23 December, 2011. Tagged crm, work, pa and mobility

My day job is as a CRM consultant for Professional Advantage. I help companies implement the Microsoft CRM platform so that they can streamline their business processes such as sales pipeline management, helpdesk / service management, and marketing automation. I've just written a blog post over on the PA blog about using Mobile devices to help your sales team get the most out of your CRM system.

The project has received a slow but steady stream of patches and bug fixes, however it's always been a little tricky to manage with a single committer over at Google Code. To make life easier for everybody involved, I've renamed the project to django-helpdesk and shifted the source code and issue management to GitHub.
