Software Requirements
  TRACS utility software, which runs on the corporate host computer, is provided with the Sales Power system. This utility software controls the movement of your customer data to a staging area on the host computer.

Another TRACS data transfer utility, also provided with Sales Power, runs on the intermediating PC and pulls the data from the corporate computer into the Microsoft Access database, also running on the intermediating PC. Access can be purchased locally at retail. It may also be purchased as part of a suite of applications such as Office 97 or Office 2000; most companies already have some version of Access within their organization. If you have earlier versions, they generally may be upgraded at a fraction of their original cost.

The Sales Power software from Compu-Power
is loaded onto the HPC / laptop by CPI staff; it provides the functionality, previously mentioned, to your field salespersons. All salespersons will have their own mobile device, but only one intermediating PC is used to synchronize all mobile devices. Sales management then can analyze the sales effectiveness in all sales territories collectively, yet can also perform an individual analysis of each salesperson’s territory or account base.

The operating system for the HPC, Microsoft’s Windows CE Pro, is included with the Sales Power system. The Active Sync software tool is included with Windows CE Pro and controls data transfer between the HPC and the intermediating PC automatically.
