Major corporations like John Hancock, Mercedes, and Zimmer Medical are deploying 1000s of iPads armed with iPad sales apps to their sales teams across the world. Meanwhile, app developers are releasing new iPad sales app features in a mobile arms race to capture their share of this growing market. If used properly, iPad sales apps can drive corporate growth and cut costs across organizations, adding millions to the bottom line.

Ok. that was two, wasn’t it?…

We’re never ones to shy away from talking about the other products in this space so, in this article, we’ll review both Showpad and Digital Sales Aid.
