Fake Brains Inc. has launched what it says is the first native Android and iOS mobile app written specifically for newspaper and media company sales reps.
The AccountScout app allows sales reps to view customer data while in the field. It provides reps with a dashboard of customer tasks and sales information, the ability to schedule and rebook ads, and to view order histories and account balances-all from a mobile phone. All of this information is immediately updated as the app connects directly with the AccountScout database used in the office.
Client names and business staff member contact information are also searchable and can be appended, giving the sales rep information before walking into a potential advertiser's business. Sales reps can dictate their notes and rebook appointments, while being notified about upcoming orders that are expiring.
AccountScout is available for download in both the Google Play and Apple iTunes stores. Based in Littleton, Colo., Fake Brains has been a provider of software for the newspaper and publishing industry for 26 years.
