Almost everyone has a phone in their pocket, capable of more than just making phone calls and sending text messages. Mobile apps have been around since these smartphones first came out, and now they can help you increase and enhance your selling potential. Here are five great apps to help you improve your business.
1) LEAN (Landmark Electronic Application Navigator) from UnitedHealthcare
The LEAN app by UnitedHealthcare allows you to confirm your scope of appointment, search providers and drug lists, review benefits, start applications, and so much more. Even if you are without internet access, applications can be started offline, then uploaded once you have an internet connection. A great app so you will always be prepared to write business.
2) Quotes for Sales Professionals from Mutual of Omaha
With Mutual of Omaha's Quoting App you can run quotes for your clients even without an internet connection
