Salespeople and representatives are professionals who are constantly on the move, whether on a business trip or meeting with a customer. This profession can greatly benefit from using iPad as a work tool. Notebooks are big, books take up space and generate tremendous weight to carry, which a salesperson or dealer needs mobility, in this regard the iPad number 1.
Some of the best apps for salespeople and representatives to manage their sales, their contacts, and I also suggest a way to use your iPad and eliminate the use of a computer once and for all.
Two elements that I consider critical to the success of a seller or representative using an iPad are Pages as a word processor and Apple's iPad External Keyboard.
