SwagIQ allows you to send gifts to prospects and clients at the ideal time. You can send branded items, custom messages, or elegant food with ease.

Box is a widely used free app that helps teams improve collaboration by enabling individuals to easily share and manage files within Salesforce and Salesforce1. The main appeal of this app is its simplicity providing an effortless collaboration from any device. Moreover, it’s intuitive and easy to use. Changes on any file can be done without downloading the file, or even people can work together on an office file as well. It helps teams move faster by cutting out email back-and-forth bottlenecks and helps teams understand how to drive customer conversations by identifying the most effective assets.
Want a way to easily gather feedback from customers and prospects? Clicktools does just that. Clicktools enables you to collect insights to improve business performance and helps you to capture valuable information throughout the customer journey. It lets you send simple surveys quickly to non-Salesforce contacts, Salesforce contacts, leads… pretty much anyone! The surveys are uber easy and fast to build, and you can export your findings into nifty, useful analytics reports.
The initial set-up for this app is free, but to get the full power, you’ll need to pay. The Timesheets.com app is quick to set up, and the sheets provided can be used for billing, payroll, time-off, accruals, and project billing and analysis. Individuals, small- and medium-sized companies can easily track hourly time, project time, and non-standard time and expenses, making HR and bookkeeper’s jobs easier and giving you more time to focus on sales.
Sending a custom proposal can be time-consuming for your sales team. Even worse is when you draft a proposal, your prospect requests a few changes, you spend time editing it, all to find out that she’s left for a vacation for two weeks. With Proposify, you can create templates, quickly edit details, and keep track of stats in one dashboard. Prototypes can be created and archived with valuable metrics to alter and hone your proposal writing skills for better win rates. They offer a free trial period, so we recommend checking it out for 30 days.
