Allianz Global Investors Builds Mobile App on Verivo Mobile App Development Platform

Customized App Extends CRM System to Field Reps With Highly Specific Capabilities That Boost Overall Productivity of Sales Staff

WALTHAM, MA–(Marketwired – Apr 7, 2015) – ┬áVerivo Software, the industry’s only open enterprise mobile application platform provider, today announced that Allianz Global Investors, a provider of global investment and research capabilities with consultative local delivery asset management, has deployed a new mobile app built on Verivo AppStudio. Designed to empower field service employees, the new Allianz mobile app boosts overall corporate productivity by enabling the sales reps to interact with financial advisors with unprecedented levels of efficiency and acuity.

Initially begun as a mini-CRM system in the sales people’s pocket, the Allianz mobile sales app has grown to be much more than simple access to the Salespage CRM system. By creating a custom app that fits their business model they were able to increase the amount of business performed by each rep. Key features include:

  • Sophisticated UI and user experience tailored to Allianz business processes;
  • Mapping feature that allows sales people to look up clients in geographic proximity to each other;
  • Access to all data, including client data, in the CRM system;
  • Ability to submit data to the CRM system;
  • Personal dashboards that provide each rep with visibility into how they are performing against quota, etc.;
  • Activity management capabilities such as daily appointments, record activities.

“Allianz had considered extending its Salespage CRM system to the sales force, but the user interface for its mobile app did not allow us to add custom features that would give our team in the field an edge,” said Satish Kalantre, system architect, Allianz Global Investors. “What sold us on Verivo AppStudio was the ability to tailor our app to the specific needs of our sales force and empower them to be more productive in the highly competitive financial services field.”

“One size fits all is never a successful prescription for a mobile field app,” said Coco Jaenicke, chief marketing officer, Verivo Software. “Working with Verivo AppStudio, Allianz Global Investors was able to add new features, such as geospacial mapping, data analysis, and activity management that are key to closing new accounts for Allianz.”
