Blackberry or Laptop
Iím looking for some input from the forum. I have a pretty old laptop (2006) and thought about getting a new one. In looking for a new laptop I thought way not a new Curve. I am an Insurance Agent and Financial Planner. So here is the question. Is it possible to manage my client base with just a 8330 and very limited use on the laptop. Are there any reps out there that run their territory with just their Blackberry and no laptop? My problem is I need to keep extensive notes on ea of my clients and I donít think any Blackberry works as a true CRM (Maybe Iím wrong). Any suggestions on what unit or software would be best to accomplish would be help.
Thanks for the help,
Only your needs can answer that question.. After my laptop crashed I transferred everything to my BB so I do work alot more from my BB but I still use my laptop just not as much. 4.5 also contributes to that alot to HTML, DTG, but I do need my laptop for some things.
Of course that is only something you can decide.
I would look into two things, if I were you;
Getting a bluetooth keyboard (I have the Freedom2), and also getting a program that specializes in what you are trying to accomplish. Maybe ACT! has a mobile version?
Storing the data is not a problem. The BB will be fine for managing contacts and keeping short notes. But longer emails or summary narratives will take you a long time to thumb type and you will eventually lose your mind.
You will also need a desktop PC or other PC to act as the chief repository for data / synchronization.
