Fileboard Adds Desktop Client and Web Call Capabilities for Sales Reps
Fileboard, provider of a sales development platform for inside sales teams, has launched a native desktop client.
Even though desktop clients are sometimes considered old-school tech, Fileboard has deliberately chosen this path, claiming that the desktop client will increase the speed of setting up and conducting online meetings and screen shares, while being a highly dependable companion for the sales person.
The company also notes that the Fileboard desktop client for live meetings differs from traditional live meeting technology, such as WebEx and GoToMeeting, for several reasons. First of all, the application has been optimized for sales people: allowing them to use all kinds of content, such as presentations, documents, Web pages and videos, to pitch their clients as a consistent story.
Fileboard enables sales meetings to start in just one click: customers are provided with a personalized link and do not need to download any plugin. Moreover, Fileboard also provides the same key engagement metrics in live sales meetings as it does in the Web version.
In addition to the desktop client, Fileboard has also added functionality that enables Web calls. With that feature, inside sales reps can now call prospects directly using their computers' microphones and headphones without having to leave the Fileboard platform.
"Our customers have told us that the speed of the technology their inside sales teams are using is key in being able to achieve their daily call quotas. That's why we decided to launch the desktop client as well as the Web call feature. Delivering the highest user experience for our users is very important to us. We're already hearing that our users love this new release," said Waseem Sadiq, chief technology officer at Fileboard, in a statement. "Also our Fileboard for Salesforce users will have the same seamless integrated experience when using a Web call, as they are already used to starting meetings directly from Salesforce."
