REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tactile, the company on a mission to make the world a happier place to work, today announced it has won a Gold Stevie Award for Best New Relationship Management Solution in the 2015 Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world's top sales, business development, contact center and customer service awards. Other winners this year include CallidusCloud, ClearSlide, SAP, SugarCRM and Xactly Corporation.
Tact was selected because it is a first-of-its-kind mobile command center designed specifically for salespeople. It combines the tools they use everyday -- phone, email, calendar and Salesforce -- into one seamless experience. Tact is powered by Tactile's patent-pending sync platform, allowing salespeople to work anywhere, regardless of whether they have wireless coverage. It has received heartfelt accolades from salespeople who are sick of inputting data into CRM systems and wasting time they could be using to sell.
