Knowing where you are, how to get where you are going, and being on time, is the foundation for a good first impression. Google Maps can map out your route based on walking, driving, or public transportation.

Due to first impressions, this makes the application number 1, in the 5 helpful apps for salespeople.
Go To Meeting is the simplest way to connect with clients across the globe. This application allows you to host unlimited meetings, webinars or trainings. The app is very affordable and the dashboard is relatively self-explanatory. You can video conference in HD, or save with integrated audio conferencing. Clients can log in from any Mac, PC, smart phone, or iPad. You can also e-mail a copy of the meeting minutes when it is finished.
Every sales person needs to keep track of the money coming in, and the money going out. Having a tool like Xpense Tracker, allows for a paperless way to file your expense report. The application keeps track of mileage, and expenses like food, lodging, and airfare. It has a built in timer for travel, and various means to organize costs, like categories for each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and photos of the receipts. The application can be customized to meet the reporting needs of any employer.
The ultimate in synchronization, Evernote allows for any busy sales person to link up all of their devices into one cloud-like atmosphere. The application offers a means of taking notes that can be accessed from any device you own. Of course, if typing isn’t your thing, voice recognition will do the transcription. This application is catching on like wildfire because of its simplicity. Like most applications these days, it even has a means of storing and organizing photos. All notes are easily searchable at any point in time.
Maintaining a good calendar is essential to staying on point in your campaigns. That’s why Sales Tracking Calendar rounds up the list for the 5 helpful apps for sales people. This is a full CRM (Customer Relationship Management) tool that can either synch with your company’s system, or can be used on a person basis, much like Dropbox (the storage application). Never have your files lost again when your computer crashes, as they will remain safe online.
