New Cincom Acquire App Is a Step Forward in Sales Mobility

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2012) - Cincom Systems (http://www.cincom.com), a leading worldwide software provider, has launched a Cincom Acquire® app for Windows 8 and Windows RT, Microsoft Corp.'s highly anticipated version of its Windows operating system. This new quote approval app makes quote proposals simple to manage and easier to approve.

The Cincom Acquire Windows Store app grants authorized Acquire customers immediate access to view their quote approvals, adding momentum to their entire sales effort. Sales teams are provided with the capability to use a tablet or any internet-enabled device and arrange for those quotes to be approved remotely or on-site. Approving a quote is now faster than ever due to the global mobility featured in the new Acquire Windows Store app. 

"By taking advantage of the power of Windows 8 devices, it has never been easier for our Cincom Acquire customers to take care of complex approvals easily and quickly -- virtually anywhere, anytime," said Greg Doud, Cincom senior product manager.

The app alerts Cincom Acquire users to notifications via tiles that are featured in Windows 8 and Windows RT. The tile alters color to indicate updates throughout the quote approval process. This provides the knowledge that sales representatives and managers need to make better informed decisions in real time. Updates made along the way are stored and archived on Cincom's server for reference. Acquire customers involved in the sales process can access that information through the Cincom Acquire app.

"Microsoft app developers have always provided rich functionality and value for our shared customers, and Windows 8 gives them the platform to deliver," said John Richards, Senior Director of Windows App Marketing for Microsoft Corp. "The re-imagining of Windows keeps our app developers ahead of the competition and gives our shared customers flexibility and choice."
