Case Study: Patten Seed Company
Custom sales support app gives staff access to real-time inventory data on any device
Patten Seed Company’s sales team often works in the field away from a traditional office setting, but they need access to key inventory data.
Patten’s sales team can now access every piece of customer information they need from an iPad, iPhone, Android, or any other device with a web browser. The application feeds information directly from their accounting system.
Patten Seed Company has provided the highest quality sod to homeowners and golf courses throughout the Southeast for over 50 years.They recently embraced mobile technology in the form of a sales support application developed by Nexxtep.
Ben Copeland, Jr. is Vice President of Patten Seed Company. After watching a demonstration of a sales support application we created, he asked us to create a custom app that his sales team could use in the field. Ben and his sales staff had very specific requirements, and our development team worked side by side with Patten to incorporate every single request into the application. The result? Patten’s sales team can now access every piece of customer information they need from an iPad, iPhone, Android, or any other device with a web browser. The application feeds information directly from their accounting system.
Patten’s sales team can view current sales, accounts receivable and A/R aging, and invoices for each customer. They can also pull contact information and email or call customers from directly within the app.
The product showcase section contains spec sheets and product videos that salesmen can display to prospects on the fly.
When asked about how well the app is working for his team, Ben had this to say: “Working with Nexxtep has been a great experience. Our sales team has been blown away by having this much information at their fingertips!”
