Software Team Tips to Keep the Momentum Going Through the Holiday Season

The Holidays are upon us, and it’s a great time of year to take that well-deserved vacation. This upcoming season is predicted to be the busiest holiday travel season on record, according to a recent USA Today article. With many Americans away from their jobs for extended weekends or long vacations, it can be a challenge for software teams to keep the momentum going in the office during this period!

We wanted to pass along some advice from two product leaders at our company on keeping their teams’ productivity high during the Holiday season. At OnSIP, we utilize the Agile Software Development method, which focuses on small groups closely working together. I asked vice president of marketing and product management Nicole Hayward and lead developer Will Mitchell about maintaining momentum in our agile work environment over the holidays.

Using SIP.js to Customize the CRM Capabilities of InstaPhone in Salesforce

InstaPhone for Salesforce offers unprecedented CRM capabilities for sales and support staff. Features such as automatic customer lookup are built directly into InstaPhone for Salesforce, so call center employees can be better prepared to close deals, offer beneficial advice, and create smoother interactions that hone in on a customer's identified needs.

But the possibilities for advanced CRM in InstaPhone are not limited to these preset features. By harnessing the power of SIP.js and InstaCall, users of InstaPhone for Salesforce can retain vital customer information, such as the page and sales items a customer viewed before s/he made the call. This gives a sales representative pertinent information about what the caller is interested in or how far along s/he is in the buying process.
