FurnishWEB sales order and sales rep app for home furnishings industry
FurnishWEB on eCat, available in the iTunes App Store, offers these features: 

  • Sales reps can prepare sales presentations electronically, eliminating the need for notebooks full of printed photograph "glossies" of product lines.
  • Sales reps can maintain flexibility during a presentation. If a retail owner or a buyer wants to go a different direction than sales reps anticipated, they can adapt and adjust quickly to be of service to the customer by simply tapping within the app on other options.
  • "Maybe, Take, No." In the past, sales reps would show printed, glossy photographs of products to buyers and, one-by-one, add them to "Maybe," "Take," and "No" piles. The rep would ultimately have to transform the "Take" pile, by hand, into an order. The FurnishWEB iPad app creates those "piles" during the sales presentation process. A few taps within the app, and the "Take" pile becomes a sales order, already on the way to the supplier.
