Supporting consumer goods representatives in the field with mobile Salesforce is not easy. Busy reps fill their days with appointments, many of which are in remote locations. Thousands of contacts, SKUs, and marketing promotions must be kept updated and it’s not easy when offline access is not supported.
Slow sync times, sketchy connectivity, and poor user experiences all reduce productivity.
Building a custom app for consumer goods road warriors is one way to solve the challenge of offline connectivity. But hand coding integration to Salesforce APIs, solving data conflicts, providing offline access and fast syncs add hundreds of thousands of dollars to project costs which complicates and delays deals. And of course, there is always the very real risk, that the project doesn’t deliver on the initial promise, or doesn’t launch at all.
