Voice Assist announced today the availability of Voice Assist for Salesforce on AppExchange 2.
Using the Voice Assist for Salesforce software, every salesperson can now dial by name, send and receive texts, listen and reply to email, and update Salesforce CRM records by voice or even listen or post to Salesforce Chatter or other social networks like Facebook and Twitter—all hands-free. For a limited time, mobile professionals can download Voice Assist for Salesforce for free for 30 days, including Voice Assist for Chatter.
"The adoption by enterprises of smart devices and applications, as well as the mounting pressures on the mobile professional to become more productive and efficient, is creating huge risks and liabilities to companies that manage a mobile sales or field force, especially while driving," says Francis Sideco, principal analyst for wireless communications at IHS iSuppli. "The availability of voice-enabled services addresses these challenges and mitigates the risks by enabling compliance with hands-free driving laws."
Now mobile salespeople can immediately update Salesforce by simply pressing a single button and using their voice. Using a Bluetooth headset or speakerphone and Voice Assist for Salesforce, a sales person can keep his Salesforce accounts updated by logging calls, updating opportunities, and posting or listening to various Chatter groups.
"Salespeople rely on tools that not only help them communicate and collaborate better and easier with their team members, but also improve productivity and the ability to multitask," said Michael Metcalf, CEO of Voice Assist. "With Voice Assist for Salesforce, the enterprise mobile worker can now work efficiently and effectively, hands-free in their cars and while they're on the road. With this product offering, mobile salespeople can do almost anything by voice that they would normally do at their desks with a keyboard."
Built using Force.com, the enterprise cloud computing platform, Voice Assist for Salesforce is immediately available for a 30-day free test drive on AppExchange 2 athttp://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N30000003J1XDEA0#.
