THE IPHONE APP automatically syncs with the Web-based BatchBook software and allows on-the-go professionals – such as real-estate agents, marketers and salespeople – real-time access to their e-mail, notes from live meetings and social media.
PROVIDENCE – A mobile version for iPhones of BatchBook, a customer relationship manager for small businesses and entrepreneurs, has been launched on the Apple store.
“This free application allows [you] to keep track of [your] professional, personal and social networking contacts, and share them with the rest of [your] team anywhere they use their mobile phone,” said BatchBlue, creator of BatchBook, in a news release.
The app will automatically sync with the Web-based BatchBook software and allows on-the-go professionals – such as real-estate agents, marketers and salespeople – real-time access to their e-mail, notes from live meetings and social media.
The iPhone app is free but users do need a $9.95 per month BatchBook account.
“People are getting more done in their professional and personal lives from their mobile phones, and it is reflected in our customer base; an iPhone application has been the No. 1 request for the past year,” said Pamela O’Hara, president of BatchBlue Software.
