HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Retriever Communications, a global provider of industrial mobile workforce automation, today announced Barking Lead and Barking for Sales, the latest additions to the company's mobile application portfolio. A departure from management and oversight-focused sales tools, Barking Lead and Barking for Sales extend sourcing capabilities to entire companies and equip outside sales representatives with an enhanced platform for sales management on a mobile device. Retriever's latest offerings are the first to be designed with the sales rep in mind, streamlining the sales process by emphasizing sales generation and improving productivity.
Barking Lead is a free iPhone application that can be used as a stand-alone tool to create and track leads in real-time, regardless of location. Extending a company's prospecting team, Barking Lead lets anyone in a company identify and submit sales prospects.
Barking for Sales automates sales processes to help representatives better manage accounts from lead to contract. Built to increase sales rep productivity, Barking for Sales lets a user create and prioritize tasks, request customer reports and manage lead follow up. Barking for Sales integrates to calendar and email functions which allows tasks to be actioned or delegated immediately, coupled with an easy action list and follow up capability processes within the App customer responsiveness becomes a major resulting benefit.
"Historically, sales systems have focused almost exclusively on driving the sales forecast process with little attention to improving day-to-day efficiency for those in the field. Our approach is completely different, making sure reps can easily and quickly do work for maximum productivity," said Mary Brittain-White, CEO of Retriever Communications. "With Barking Lead and Barking for Sales, we have built the first rep centric mobile platform which gives reps what they need to manage the sales process from start to finish -- and by doing so, helping them get the results their management teams desire."
Retriever applications are uniquely developed for all operating systems regardless of wireless connection or in the event of a device failure, so that lead generation is not subject to environmental conditions, particularly in remote areas with poor reception.
Users will need to go through a one-time authentication process to provision access to the Barking Lead app. Downloads are available through the Apple App Store. Barking for Sales is now available and detailed on http://retrieverbarking.com/
