Reps don’t call as much as they used to for product details such as the wattage of a lamp, shade size and availability because they’ve already got it. I’ve reduced by a third the number of calls per day. Reps send in orders via email rather than by faxing them in, making the system much more efficient for everyone.

What a terrific tool! I traveled this week and used my customized stacks for three different sales meetings, made four different presentations with it and emailed purchased items to the account. It is awesome. The combination of our catalog shots plus the walk thrus is a presentation dream. Jim, Century Furniture sales rep

eCat is amazingly powerful for something so simple to use. It's changed the way I work in significant and unexpected ways because I'm so close to and engaged with what's happening with our merchandise, inventory, and orders. I see a copy of every order the minute it comes in so I can interact with the reps right away about what they are doing for the company and customers. Every night I go through the product by category to see what's happening with the lines, what vendors are delivering, where we are out of stock, and how the promos are selling. The amount of information I'm getting by looking at our product lines and orders visually like this is absolutely incredible. I can't imagine now what I'd do without it. Charles Hoffman, President, Sarreid Ltd.

eCat is really easy to use, even for people without tech backgrounds. The sales reps and everyone in the home office have embraced the use of the app. When reps show a sales presentation, it is more effective and organized than when they used to do it, fumbling around with loose leaf pictures or catalogs. Reps can organize their own stacks in order to customize a presentation to the dealer. Creating a personalized portfolio of images means our reps don’t waste the buyer’s time. This has definitely resulted in more sales. Moore Councill, President, Moore Councill Furniture

eCat is a better solution than I bargained for, especially when I take into consideration the powerful marketing-emailing tool that is present in the app. It's value is priceless. Today I issued an edict that it is mandatory that each rep spend one day a week emailing product and offer promotions tailored their specific customer. Stanley Falinski, President, Dasch PTY

More news from Northern Antartica... I previously told you of the parlous state of the economy in Tasmania. This is the worst winter in many years. We just returned from The North and Northwest. Launceston was down to -2⁰ and Devonport -3. But now to a brighter outlook. As you have seen we have had our first few orders using eCat on the iPad and it is fantastic. When I called on Kings Meadows News and Lotto I was met with “I won’t be ordering anything until the Gift Fair” I said just have a look at the range so you know what is available, handed her the iPad and told her to scroll through and press the Maybe button if she saw something she liked. This ended up with an order worth just under $900. Much the same with the next two orders. I doubt I would have got this size order with the hard copy catalogue and possibly not even an order! - John & Cherie, sales representatives, Dasch Design Ltd.
