    Cleaner Maps with Clustering

    One of the most valuable features of Salespod for managers is the map, displaying the locations of every activity that reps have completed in the field. The map allows managers to make sure their mobile workers are where they need to be and covering their entire region, and to keep an eye on where everyone is in real-time, giving managers a closer connection to their field force. However, for companies that have hundreds of activities every day, or managers who want to look at data from longer periods of time than just the current day, the Salespod map can sometimes get a little crowded. Pins overlap one another or overwhelm the space, and in the past, only a certain number of activities could be shown at once. Last week, Salespod introduced a new version of the map designed to handle these issues with a simple, clean solution: activity clusters.

    Grouping Reps and Clients by Territory

    Salespod has always provided managers with the ability to filter data submitted from the field and zoom in on whatever specific activities, reps, and/or clients they wanted to see for any period of time. However, up until now, it has only been possible to filter by one rep and one client at a time. With the newest update to the manager's web console, Salespod has added a feature that lets managers organize reps and clients into Territories, which can then be used as filters so that the activities attached to a whole group of reps and/or clients will are visible at once.

    A Mobile Work Log

    Salespod allows managers to see not only the real-time current activities of their field reps, but also a permanently stored history of activities completed by Reps in the past. But it's not just managers who need access to that history. If a Rep wants to see what they did the last time they visited a particular Client, or which clients they visited on a particular day, they, too, can see that information through the Salespod mobile app.

    Taking Orders on the Fly

    Representatives who make sales from the field all day can end up with a pile of purchase order paperwork, each piece of which takes up valuable time to produce. This information then has to be sent in all at once to the back office, where the manager receives it only after it's already out-of-date. Salespod is designed to cut down the time it takes to fill out purchase orders, and to allow reps to submit them in real-time once they're completed, so managers always have access to the most relevant sales data from their field force.

    In order for reps to be able to create purchase orders from the Salespod mobile app, the back office manager must first set up a product list from the Salespod web console. This list will be what Salespod uses to determine the available products for each purchase order, as well as the prices of each item. To add a pro...
