Way before anyone was even thinking about “work from home” or “remote teams,” there was one type of worker that knew just how tough it can be to have your workforce spread out all over the place: the franchiser. Franchises, while often owned and operated by individuals, are run under umbrella organizations that have to make sure everything is done the correct way, even when the store is miles from the home base. That means a lot of long-distance coordinating and communication.
The other group that knows all about this stuff? Anyone who handles sales out in the field for their company.
While franchises and salespeople had to rely on telephones and handwritten notes keeping track of everything back in the day, today is 2014 and we all have little computers in our pockets to help us with that stuff. Your smartphone may be full of silly games and angry birds but anyone who’s working out in the field should make sure that his includes the Outfield app.
We’re not talking about a ball game.
Outfield is a new CRM tool that allows people to keep track of all the arms of their company, no matter where they’re physically located. With the ability to full integrate with with other popular team management tools, Outfield not only lets users track what happens out in the field in real time, it also provides a space to connect with the team and track the progress of whatever sales deal or franchise setup you’re working on.
