New tools and applications are designed every year that make the lives of salespeople easier. Here are 3 specific tools you should check out going into 2014.
CamCard is an application for your smartphone or tablet that allows you to scan, save and organize business cards. It’s especially useful for travelers or for people who don’t like carrying around a box of business cards.
When you scan a card, CamCard auto-detects the text orientations and crops it for you—no manual editing. The app allows you to create groups, merge contacts, and reach out to people via phone, text message, or email. You can also add notes about the card owner like when or where you met the person.
2) Boomerang for Gmail
If you’re anything like me, your inbox is always full of unread messages. Sometimes it feels like half the day is spent reading and responding to emails.
Boomerang makes email as painless as possible. You can schedule emails to send later, and you can set reminders so certain emails don’t show up until you need them to. There’s also a feature that alerts you if you don’t hear back from an email after a period of time.
Getting around a big city is stressful, and bus routes and subway systems can be confusing, even if you’ve visited the city before. You don’t have to waste your time asking for directions or deciphering maps anymore.
HopStop is an app that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to get around most major cities. It helps you navigate the city’s public transportation to get you to your destination as efficiently as possible. It’s a great time-saver.
Give these apps a try, and see if they don’t make your life easier in the upcoming year.
