When you’re in the middle of making a sale, you need to keep the rhythm of your client conversations strong and be ready to share your product, service or idea at a moment’s notice. That’s why you need technology that supports seamless presentations. A smooth operation, if you will.
You’re just wrapping up a client meeting, when someone in the room asks to take one last look at the estimate before signing a contract—but your laptop is already shut down. The clock is ticking. You sense patience waning. What do you do?
Moira Burke, manager of Bio-Kinetic found her quick-fix with Windows 7 Professional: “I travel extensively visiting current and prospective clients and the speed at which Windows 7 Professional boots up saves me on average between 30 and 40 minutes per day. That’s really a very significant time savings when you’ve got a busy schedule and are on the road.”
And Saumil Majmudar, CEO of SportzVillage has discovered faster ways to locate important documents in the midst of client meetings: “We’ve been in business for nearly six years now, so we have amassed a lot of data. It can be a hassle to find files quickly, especially when we’re in the middle of a client meeting, but Windows Search has really helped us locate presentations, proposals, document templates—really, anything we need—in seconds.”
Windows 7 Professional is designed to sleep, resume and perform faster. Enhanced power options give you more control over the way your laptop works on the go, and with Windows Search, you’ll be able to locate what you need rapidly—just start typing and watch your screen populate with pertinent suggestions. So the next time you’re faced with a client question, you can answer it on the spot, and maybe even seal your next business deal in record time.
