portatour® route-planner now also available for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 – with offline-mode for mobile field reps

Are you already using Microsoft Dynamics CRM for your field reps? Are you thinking about switching to Dynamics CRM 2015? Then we have good news for you: the portatour® route-planner is now compatible with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 – in addition to the 2013 and 2011 versions.

portatour® is currently known not only as the fastest fully automatic sales-route-planner available for Dynamics CRM, but it also offers an offline mode, which allows field reps to access their appointments, customer data and call reports anytime and anywhere. PC, notebook, tablet and smartphone are all supported.

Equip your field reps with the route-planner to visit more customers and drive fewer miles.

portatour® for Dynamics CRM: visit more customers and drive fewer miles at the push of a button.

You know the challenge to field reps: visit as many customers as possible, but distances are long and many hours are wasted in the car. A perfectly optimized route would be helpful: fewer miles mean lower fuel costs and time for what really matters – more customers and additional appointments.

portatour® makes this easy: at the push of a button, each field rep automatically gets a route plan optimized to visit more customers and drive fewer miles.

Integrated in Dynamcis CRM 2011, 2013 and 2015

portatour® is available for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and 2013. As of March 2015, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 is also supported – both as an “On Premise” installation and “On Demand” in the cloud.

You set the goals for the field reps: after installing the solution, you define which Accounts, Contacts, or Leads should be visited, at which frequency should the visits be made, how much time should be invested in a single visit and many other parameters. The tiresome work of route-planning is done by portatour®. At the push of one button, the schedules are calculated to maximize your results according to your deinfed strategy. Following your rules, portatour® automatically selects which customers to call while also optimizing the driving route.

To illustrate this with an example, here are the settings for the call strategy in portatour® for Dynamics CRM:

Mobile and offline

Everyone in the field visiting customers has faced this problem: there are some places without mobile internet access. There is also no access to Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Thanks to the offline-mode of portatour®, you can access your route-planner anytime and anywhere. All necessary data for your daily work in outside sales are downloaded as an offline copy on your device – be it laptop, smartphone or tablet.
