managing the sales process
Managing the Sales Process

TechMate has built a process designed to manage the relocation process from the point of initial contact….

1) Initial contact is made with prospect. Phone survey is completed and emailed from FirstMate OR on-site estimate is scheduled and assigned to a salesperson.

2) Salesperson completes on-site survey and prints out detailed cube sheet and estimate for prospective shipper.

3) Full visibility allows for changes to be accessed by a customer service representative and emailed directly to the shipper from within the application.

4) Detailed management reporting on everything from lead sources to individual sales performance allows managers to make more informed decisions.

FirstMateis the hub system of the TechMate product suite. FirstMate combines Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools with fully-featured survey and estimation capabilities. The system streamlines the sales process by providing a data repository for all shipments, an interface to the mobile sales and inventory applications, integrated email functionality and detailed reporting capacity.

Pocket SalesMate/Tablet SalesMaterecords customer information, surveys, calculates tariff charges, and allows users to print a Table of Measurements and an Estimate/Order for Service directly at residence. SalesMate improves productivity by empowering salespeople to provide accurate estimates, offering a more professional presentation, eliminating redundant data entry and, most importantly, by improving closing ratios.

LoadMate empowers drivers to wirelessly print or email inventories directly from residence. The system’s easy-to-use features mirror the existing pen-and-paper process to minimize the learning curve for new users. Completed Inventories can be printed in standard English or coded format.

FirstMate’s scheduling system was designed specifically to serve the needs of our relocation clientele.

> Eliminates need for scheduling book

Perhaps the reason that TechMate is the largest moving software vendor in the world, is that we actually listen to our clients…..

  • The attached survey does not tell us that our 3500 customers are all 100% happy…but it does tell you that:
  • We listen
