AvantGo Ships Mobile Sales App
Updated · Aug 09, 2001
AvantGo, Inc. (Nasdaq:AVGO) said Monday that it has started shipping a sales force automation application for Palm, Pocket PC and RIM BlackBerry devices.
The company said its AvantGo Mobile Sales application is its first packaged mobile software. The company is best known for being an information portal for handheld and wireless devices.
“Our goal is to package the knowledge and experience that we’ve gained with our existing products and services into a shrink-wrapped software application that plugs and plays with existing sales automation applications,” said Richard Owen, AvantGo’s CEO.
The applications enable sales personnel to use their handheld or Net-enabled phones to view and update information from well-known customer relationship management (CRM) applications such as those from Onyx, Oracle and Siebel Systems, the company said.
Besides enabling access to CRM data, the application supports alerts that are pushed to the device about customer interactions.
The company provided no pricing information.
