Both application are intended to work within HootSuite to give sales teams a centralized view of what is going on with all the salespeople, clients, and other facets of the sales process.
These apps are still only previews and won’t be available until next year (so don’t try to go looking for them now), but there is an interesting twist to this that might get more teams trying this new collaboration and communications tools. Remember, Chatter is going freemium soon.
Imagine having a team chat built into your regular information tool? At TNW we, of course, have lots of tools to help us keep up with the news. Twitter is just one of them, but we have a backchannel as well. We’re always looking for new solutions to explore. Maybe SalesHootChatterSuite might be just the ticket.
Disclosure: I was upgraded to a HootSuite Pro plan by HootSuite to allow me to test new features.
