Cloud-based mobile sales software provider, Skynamo, has announced a partnership with the UK’s largest Sage business partner, Datel. The partnership will see Datel offering Skynamo’s field sales management software and mobile sales app to Sage customers wanting to enhance the performance and efficiency of their field salesforces.
Skynamo uses mobile, location and cloud technology to provide real-time customer, stock and sales activity information to sales representatives working in the field. Datel’s Sage expertise will enable its customers to integrate with Skynamo, providing sales representatives with secure and real-time mobile access to the latest product, customer, pricing and inventory information. In addition to enabling remote access to information and order capturing, Skynamo’s app includes rep-specific functionality aimed at reducing the amount of admin sales people have to do, such as integrated GPS tracking and automated call report generation.
Datel specialise in Sage ERP and CRM software and products that expand Sage’s core functionality. Datel’s partnership with Skynamo enables them to extend the value of their customers’ investment in Sage onto their sales organisations and improve the volume and quality of data collected and stored in Sage by field sales reps.
Brian Howe, Alliances Director for Skynamo, commented: “We are bridging the gap between finance and sales, or ERP and CRM systems, that exists in most organisations. Skynamo makes it much easier for field sales reps to access data stored in these systems and to collect and enter data into them from the field via a single mobile interface. We’ve developed a fantastic working relationship with the Datel team and share common values and ambitions, which bodes well for this partnership. We are genuinely excited about joining forces with Datel to extend this offering to their customer base.”
Over 100 Sage customers have already benefited from integration with Skynamo and the resulting extension of Sage functionality to field salesforces.
Andrew Pritchard, Managing Director of Datel, added: “After a rigorous due diligence of Skynamo, we were impressed with the solution’s functionality and its ability to unlock additional value in our customers’ investments in Sage. We encourage our customers who have teams of field sales representatives to consider Skynamo as a way to not only improve their sales effectiveness and revenue, but also as a way to increase adoption and use of Sage from within their organisations.”
