Traditionally a salesperson pulled out a laptop to record notes and send emails, but now with smart devices there is no more waiting. Productivity and customer service improve. Additionally, using an iPad as a presentation device has become a new trend. A Salesperson can show a product, a blueprint or schematic, or even configure a custom product right in front of a prospect.
