- 62 percent operate in the cloud, up from 37 percent.
- 68 percent use apps, up from 50 percent.
- 63 percent operate with a smartphone, up from 43 percent.
SalesPad Cloud offers a holistic look at business operations by bringing enterprise functionalities to the cloud. It provides detailed inventory, purchase order, and sales document management; practical CRM; and premier shipping and e-commerce integrations to enhance QBO.
