- by Christofer Oberst
CAROL STREAM, IL – Blue Book Services is bringing its up-to-the-minute business information to the new age with the release of its new mobile app, now available for iPhone or Android smartphones.
Members can now access Blue Book information directly on their mobile device. The app offers several in-demand features for suppliers, buyers, brokers, and transporters, including the capability to search for companies by location, rating, commodity, and business classification; direct-dial from a phone number; link to a map or business location; and much more.
Check out the app for yourself by clicking one of the buttons below.
Jim Carr, President and CEO of Blue Book Services, expressed his excitement for the launch of the mobile app, stating in a press release that having access to real-time business information 24/7 allows members to “make better decisions to grow sales and effectively manage business risk.”
“Our mission is to provide businesses in the global fresh produce industry with the best resources to succeed,” Carr added. “The new mobile app answers this pledge.”
Users can search for companies by name, location, their trade practices and/or credit worth ratings, commodity, and more.
The app also provides members an easier way to streamline a trip to visit a group of customers by creating “Watchdog Groups.” A “Watchdog Group” organizes the companies that a user will be visiting and allows them to find the most direct route to their location, as well as find prospective customers near their location.
Mark Erickson, Blue Book’s CIO and Senior Vice President, said in a press release that the mobile app is a "valuable tool" included with Blue Book membership.
“Whether a sales person needs a buyer’s contact information or a credit manager needs to check a rating before finalizing a sale, the app provides this information quickly,” he said.
That’s not all Blue Book has in store. The company invites PMA Fresh Summit expo attendees to visit booth #2735 to see all the new and exciting innovations the company has to share this year.
