More commonly known as Van Sales, the typical user is mobile and distant from the rest of the business and traditionally faxes handwritten order sheets back to head office for processing. This will often lead to out of date information on sales, stock and delay invoicing of orders. There is also the possibility of errors occurring when the orders are manually entered.
With recent advances in Smartphones, pdas and network technology it is now possible to have a mobile sales force utilising 3G/EDGE communication networks, who are in constant contact with the home site and more crucially the core Sage system.
The Datalinx Mobile Ordering & Delivery system utilises the latest in handheld and tablet technology providing the user with remote order taking functionality, cash collection, client management, merchandising and confirmation of product delivery whilst on-site with a client “taking Sage Mobile.”
The application is typically used by a company sales rep or delivery van driver and is also beneficial at trade shows or when away from fixed terminals at trade centres and market trade floors.
