Visual 2000 Launches New Mobile Sales App with ThinkPad Tablet Promotion

Montreal, Canada, March 01, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Visual 2000 International Inc. (http://www.visual-2000.com) is launching a new Visual SFA.net™ Tablet app for the iPad®, iPhone®, Android™, Surface™ and other Windows®-based tablets and smartphones. The powerful yet simple-to-use mobile salesforce automation (SFA) solution empowers fashion brands and wholesalers to make visually-rich sales presentations, drill down on product details, check available inventory levels, and automatically post orders to the Visual ERP.net™ business system from any location with an internet connection. For a limited time, Visual 2000 is leveraging its partnership with Lenovo® to give away a free ThinkPad® Tablet 2 with all orders of 5 or more Visual SFA.net Tablet licenses.

“This widely supported HTML5 mobile app is designed to enable sales teams to collaborate with customers on new orders at tradeshows and through other mobile sales opportunities,” explained Visual 2000 Vice President of R&D Charles Benoualid. “It goes farther than other mobile apps by integrating directly with ERP to provide always up-to-date product information, pricing, and inventory status to ensure that orders are accurate, products are available to promise, and orders are processed without redundant steps and errors.”

The sleek Windows 8 style touch-enabled interface of Visual SFA.net Tablet makes product presentation and order entry quick and simple. Sellers can present all or select merchandise in an online store that allows buyers (or sales professionals) to visually select products and add them to a convenient shopping cart. Individual item details include available colors, sizes, and inventory levels. A simple checkout process submits the order directly to the office system, generates an email notification of the order, and displays an order confirmation on the mobile device.

For a limited time, companies buying five or more Visual SFA.net Tablet licenses will receive a free Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 with their paid order and maintenance agreement. More than just a tablet, this device is defining a new category of extreme mobility starting at 1.25 pounds with over 10 hours of battery life. It features the Windows 8 operating system, engaging multimedia with 10.1 inch HD touch-optimized display, full Microsoft Office compatibility, and more*.

Visual SFA.net Tablet complements the long-standing Visual SFA.net Desktop edition, which features additional order history, invoice management, and customer self-service capabilities not found in the Tablet app. Both are part of the growing range of Visual 2000 ecommerce solutions that also includes Visual WebStore.net™, Visual CRM.net™, Visual C2B.net™, and other integrated wholesale and retail software modules. Visual SFA.net Tablet is now available for customer delivery worldwide.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
