5. Mobile applications for handheld devices
Which CRM vendor is offering mobile applications specifically designed for PalmOne, BlackBerry, and other handheld devices?

Today, nearly every CRM vendor is offering mobile applications specifically designed for PalmOne, BlackBerry, and other handheld devices, according to a Peppers & Rogers report on SearchCRM.com.
Some experts say that companies should be doing more than simply giving their mobile staff access to customer data, they should be providing them with tools to gather intelligence from that information.
