As global accounts director at Altus, Inc., Michelle Klatt’s job is to visit Fortune 500 companies and demonstrate her firm’s video management software. When the iPad came out a year ago, she was all over it.
“I was one of the first salespeople to get one,” she says. “I fought very hard.” Her company’s videos look “absolutely beautiful” on the iPad, she says. And once the sales presentation is over, she uses her iPad to update the Salesforce.com entry for the sales prospect, log the meeting, send out follow-up e-mails, manage her LinkedIn contacts, and do other job-related paperwork.
