This app enables the user to send, sign, track and file agreements from Salesforce on any device from any location so that salespeople can track their deals in real-time and close sales quicker.
It also helps to automate and streamline document management, facilitates the creation of branded emails with company logos on them and controls security with authentication and password options.
Sales and business expert David Williams listed it amongst the ten best mobile phone apps for increasing sales staff productivity in 2013.
