SunTech arms sales staff with tablet PCs
A READY-TO-WEAR EYEWEAR supplier is using tablet PCs to help reps get up-to-date customer profiles, provide quick sell-through and replenish stock.
Vancouver-based SunTech Optics Inc., which sells sunglasses, reading glasses and accessories, recently deployed a sales automation application called EZ Route to increase sales efficiencies. But the application required a portable hardware platform, and its initial plan to roll out EZ Route on PDAs just wouldn't cut it.
“Our programmer of 15 years gave us a year's notice that he was retiring,” said Mike Chang, SunTech's IT manager. “So we decided to take a hard look at our business.” (Source: ITBusiness.ca)
