In today’s connected world, people expect easy-to-use applications that
require no training. Gone are the days when a sales rep would spend two
weeks in class to become certified on their sales automation system.
Now, users must be able to download an app and be up and running in
Oracle takes this principle to heart in our base design objective for Oracle Sales Cloud: Build an app for sales reps and managers that is intuitive and inviting. In the latest Oracle Applications Release 7, Oracle Sales Cloud delivers on this goal with an app that is truly easy-to-use, available anywhere, at anytime and on any device – whether desktop, smartphone, or tablet.
For the Desktop
With R7, Oracle Sales Cloud delivers a new, powerful, yet simple desktop user interface for sales reps. The key sales tools for leads, opportunities, accounts, contacts, scheduling, and collaboration can all be accessed directly from the homepage. All the market-leading functionality – Customer Data Management, CX Cloud integrations, Territory Management, Sales Analytics – is available right at your fingertips. Without needing any documentation or training, sales reps can dive right in and begin managing their day.
For the SmartPhone and Tablet
Also new in R7 is a unified mobile app that improves sales team’s productivity when out of the office. Managing daily sales calls, retrieving customer information, logging interactions, and submitting forecasts are all now available in one native application on both smartphones and tablets. And like the rest of Oracle Sales Cloud, the new mobile app is easy to use, requiring nothing more to be productive than visiting your app store and downloading the app. iOS, Android, and Blackberry are all supported.
Try It Out!
Go to the app store today and download ‘Oracle Sales Cloud Mobile’ and try it out. If you are already an Oracle Sales Cloud customer, you can connect directly to your existing instance. For those of you not yet using the service, there is a demo mode available right from the home screen.
For those sales reps who prefer, Oracle Sales Cloud can also be accessed from Microsoft OutlookTM. Users can update contacts, appointments, leads and opportunities, all from within the email application sales reps use more than any other. Integration with Microsoft OutlookTM is included in the base service – no additional fee required.

By keeping the principle of simplicity in mind, Oracle Sales Cloud has become not only the most powerful sales automation tool, but also the easiest to use – in the office, on the road, or anywhere in between.
