Stacks 2.0 – Making FatStax 10X More Valuable to Sales People

By | Mobile Productivity Tools
Stacks have been the cornerstone of our success here at FatStax (it’s even in our name, Stax = Stacks).

From the beginning, we imagined that sales reps with 1000s of products would inevitably find themselves in conversations with customers where a pre-canned PowerPoint presentation was useless and, they needed to pivot quickly.

Stacks was our answer for reps that needed an “Ace in Hole” when things go sideways and largely it has helped in just those situations.

Without fail, every time we speak with sales people using the platform “Stacks” is mentioned as the number 1 feature that benefits our user base – sales people.

New Support Site for FatStax Launched

By | Mobile Productivity Tools

We are proud of our fantastic support. Just ask our customers. It’s not just a responsibility for our Customer Support Team but everyone in the company. We want our customers to be wildly successful.

One of the things we have learned in the past 3.5 years with FatStax® is that great customers have great questions about your service. We have a lot of great customers so to serve them better, we are launching a new Support portal for FatStax.

The intent is to provide the same level of customer service that we were able to when we had just a handful of customers. Now, with thousands of sales people using FatStax in every part of the world, it’s more important than ever (and more of a challenge) to respond quickly and accurately to questions and troubleshoot when necessary.

Regardless of how simple you think your interface is and how the instructions are, your users have a day job. Sometimes they don’t recall the exact sequence of tabs or buttons to do send multiple items in a stack or

Why did we pick these topics?

We do a ton of training for new users. A quick 20 minutes and you are up and running using the app. By now, we can anticipate some of the questions and have built that in to our training. Those topics are included. Building out and updating the content catalogs are also popular such as How do I Change the Order of Categories in the App?


We would also like to mention that the service we are using is awesome and good deeds (and software) deserve to get noticed. The guys at ScreenSteps built a great, easy-to-use platform that makes it easier to manage support content. They have different plans to fit company needs and their response to our questions (even dumb ones) has been terrific.  Check them out at We get no compensation for the recommendation, by the way, we just like it.

Things always change, so will the Support Site.

Everthing seems to be changing in mobile these days and how companies are using mobile technology –  New operating systems, new app features, new use cases, on and on.

By | Mobile Productivity Tools, Sales Productivity

As we work on developing the next version of FatStax for iPad, one thing has become clear from our user feedback – keep the responsiveness and simplicity of the app. In the initial versions of our iPad sales app, we took advantage of the features of the ipad that have made it so popular – fast, responsive, simple.

We are impatient and we build FatStax for impatient people.

For those decision makers contemplating whether to build enterprise ipad sales apps in-house or buy existing sales apps, consider the field sales end user. The field sales end users are impatient, have high expectations and don’t care about generic “productivity”. They want a tool that helps them sell more.

From our experience, they want sales apps that are: Read More
