Dull sales tool

Don't bother with this dull sales tool.

Sales Leads Info Tracker Express Edition claims to help sales professionals track their leads. Although it works--mostly--there's nothing particularly impressive or notable about it. We have trouble imagining that any serious salesperson would find it very useful.

The program's interface is plain, comprising a series of text boxes and a handful of buttons. For each lead, users enter the product, company name, contact information, sales strategy, and so on. The saved records are displayed in a separate pane, labeled by company name. Users simply click on each individual entry to view its details. We like the fact that users can attach documents to each record, but the only other really useful feature--the capability to e-mail records--didn't seem to work. When we tried it, we got an error message that made little sense. The program has no Help file, so there was little hope of resolving the problem. Although the publishers couldn't be bothered with a Help file, they did manage to include plenty of advertising for their other products, all conveniently placed right inside the interface, where you can't miss them. We were unimpressed by this program. It doesn't do anything that other programs can't do. There are more effective options in sales software.

Sales Leads Info Tracker Express Edition is free to try, but the trial version limits users to 10 leads. The program comes as a zip file but installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program.
