|Living Naturally Rolls Out Sales Automation Program – Sales Genius|
|May 14, 2007, Venice, Fla. – Living Naturally announced today the signing of several new marquee accounts for its revolutionary sales automation system – Sales Genius™. Sales Genius is an advanced PDA based customer management and field sales ordering system for companies with mobile sales forces. Companies currently using the program include Hyland’s, Tozzi, New Chapter, New Connections, Marshalls, Natrol and American Marketing. Companies that have recently committed to rollout the program include Hain-Celestial Group, Presence Marketing, Pacific Natural Sales and Mitvah.|
Living Naturally CEO David Knaggs is pleased with the adoption of the Sales Genius program. “Sales Genius is quickly becoming the defacto standard for sales automation in this industry,” he commented. “Suppliers are moving away from laptop based systems to get the benefits of a fully functional handheld PC with shelf scanning capabilities. Information is power in this day and age and there is nothing more empowering to executives and sales management than being able to track field force activity and field sales in real time,” he concluded.
Industry veteran and Living Naturally executive Dot Peck sees Sales Genius as the tool that the industry has been waiting on for many years. “Until recently, Pocket PC’s have not had the capabilities or price point to warrant consideration as a standard field sales technology platform,” she remarked. “This has all changed and these units are now affordable with full PC capabilities, barcode scanning, rugged-ized design and built-in wireless support for instant communications of orders/audits, credits, call reports and email. Field sales staff are seeing large increases in sales productivity and a lot less paperwork and phone calls using Sales Genius, while sales managers and company executives are instantly able to track and monitor all field sales activity,” Ms. Peck concluded.
Sales Genius users are reporting positive results with the system. Penny Cole, the New Connections Marketing Group Sales Manager, commented, “Sales Genius streamlines our ordering process and saves a ton of paper." Tracy Hittman from Hylands Midwest said, “I know what products are stocked in my stores and I’m able to cut in a lot more new items." Andrea Wulwick from New Chapter NYC added, “No more hours of office work each night because the orders are already transmitted. I love that my order total is available immediately. It’s great to know how much $ I’ve generated as my day goes on."
Sales Genius is now available to all suppliers in the natural health industry including distributors, manufacturers and brokers.
