Get it done, right at the spot
TMX-SD can help your organization manage your core functions through a single, seamless solution delivered on the cloud.
An elegant and easy to use Mobile App allows fields agents to perform all key sales and distribution functions in the field. The App then sends the collected data over the available data network or stores it locally on the mobile device if the data network connection is not available. Locally stored data is synchronized with the cloud when the connection is available either through LAN, Wi-Fi or mobile data network.
The mobile App has been designed with an easy to follow wizard like interface and quick access drop-downs to open a function screen directly, if needed. Major functions performed by field agents include following:
Follow Personal Journey Plan
The Personal Journey Plan (PJP) created for an agent is downloaded on the mobile device and the agent can select and view status of each store in the plan. The agent is able to see the store timings as well can search for stores with a specific status such as the “Store is Open”. The agent then follows the PJP and his/her location is captured by geotracking and is available in real time to the management.
Field agents follow an intuitive path for order booking by selecting the ‘route’ and ‘point of sale’. The next step is to select a product and adds its quantity. It is repeated as many times as required. Any applicable promotions are automatically calculated and applied. Tax calculation and total value summaries are calculated implicitly and are displayed. When the order is complete it goes through booking and delivery process.
Deliver Goods or Sell on the Spot
Field Agents can carry products to deliver or additional items to sell on the spot and collect payments. The Mobile App is designed to select the optimum route, update invoices as delivered, receive payments and all this information is seamlessly updated in the database.
Field Agents can collect payment using their Mobile App at point of sale. Several types of payment options are available including cash, corporate credit, credit card and checks. Field Agents update records by indicating the amount and type of payment or by swiping the credit card via a blue tooth device. A receipt can also be printed using a portable mobile device printer.
Field Agent can perform several operations like planogram, asset tracking and capture customer feedback along with other competitor’s information in form of survey by visiting ‘point of sale’ from the route:
a. Record customer feedback and complains
b. Obtain competitor information
