Jun 9, 2015 · 2 min read

Are you the team go-to for getting things done? Is your office nickname “Action?” Good news: in honor of summer blockbuster season, the AppExchange has five apps that will help you get even more accomplished. Take your skills to next-level, action-hero proportions when you crush every challenge, increase productivity, and close deals faster. Read on to learn more about the apps and find out which action hero you’re channeling.

Velocify: Jack Traven, Speed

While Jack makes sure that buses keep moving so nothing explodes, you’re focused on keeping deals moving forward. You use Velocify to prioritize sales, drive rapid lead response, and create more consistent daily sales activity to make revenue more predictable and consistent. Like Sandra Bullock-keeping-a bus-above-55-miles-an-hour consistent.

DocuSign: Captain Steven Hiller, Independence Day

Captain Hiller complained about his missed Fourth of July plans (“I could’ve been at a barbecue!”), but you don’t have to. DocuSign gives you the power to sign, send, and manage documents from anywhere, anytime, on any device. Just in case you ever need to sign and send a contract while dragging an alien behind you in the desert.

CallidusCloud CPQ: Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games

When it comes to getting quotes and proposals to clients, you’re obsessed with making sure they’re 100% accurate. Like Katniss-shooting-an-apple-out-of-a-pig’s-mouth accurate. You use CallidusCloud to help guide reps through the quoting process to ensure Katniss-like accuracy every time and increase deal size. Because you’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that the odds are ever in your team’s favor.

FinancialForce Accounting: James Bond, License to Kill

Kill off inaccurate data, spreadsheet overload, and poor visibility — and protect your bottom line from evil. With FinancialForce Accounting, you can streamline the opportunity-to-cash process, manage revenue precisely, and give everyone a 360-degree view of customers. Get control back in your court and grow both the top and bottom line. And do it all shaken, not stirred.

Yesware: Lara Croft, Tomb Raider

Like Lara Croft, you enjoy collecting important artifacts, only you collect insights that help sales teams perform better — like which emails, links, and attachments get the most engagement. You credit your many discoveries and subsequent successes to Yesware, the app that better connects you with prospects and maximizes opportunities right from your inbox. Which is good news, since your artifact searching is slightly less death-defying than Lara Croft’s.
