The software is designed for both large and small enterprises, with tools for small sales teams, as well as for a widely dispersed sales staff handling thousands of prospects, and multiple products and services. It can also synchronize selected functions, such as contact management and appointments, with Microsoft Outlook.
NextSale is immediately available, is priced at $55 per seat per month, and has a 50-day free trial period. It is available as a hosted solution or as resident software with remote synchronization capability.
"NextSale(TM) is the next generation of sales force automation software," said Roger D. Blackwell, professor of marketing at The Ohio State University, and a co-developer of the software, in a statement. "It is the most comprehensive, practical and easy-to-use sales-force automation system, and we believe it represents disruptive technology in the SFA marketplace."
