Target Net Goes Mobile on the iPad

“You are changing the world” said one Knowland Client

McLean, VA,1/31/11The Knowland Group, a leading provider of sales and marketing solutions for the global hospitality industry, understands hotel sales managers can’t be chained to a desktop computer all day. That’s why Knowland has made Target Net available on the Apple iPad.
Now hotel sales managers can log into their Target Net accounts while on the elevator, in meetings and off site. The mobile iPad edition of Target Net is part of Knowland’s continuing commitment to enhance client value, which is our top priority.  
Launched in 2010, Target Net provides true sales force automation, and is the only complete business development solution for hotels. Sales managers use the program for every step in the booking process – from meeting space, menus, to table configuration.
“Target Net does more than just manage ongoing sales efforts and meeting planning. It generates leads for sales teams to pursue, and then helps turn those opportunities into bookings,” said Knowland Group CEO Michael K. McKean. “By joining forces with the iPad, Target Net is continuing our history of providing clients with innovative applications that are fast, easy to use, and fun.” 
Operating from the cloud, Target Net is easier to use than any other product on the market. On the iPad, Target Net allows for direct interaction with clients. Sales teams can also read email, see contacts, calendars, and other resources. It also increases efficiency because during a meeting, a contract can be written up, automatically made into a PDF, signed and emailed on the spot. Target Net on the iPad is not an app; it’s easily accessible on Wi-Fi through the Safari Internet browser. Best of all, it’s free and doesn’t require maintenance.
Knowland has already gotten rave reviews about Target Net for the iPad. In an email, one happy client said, "I am sending this to you from my iPad. I am looking at my booking while walking down the atrium of the [hotel]! You are changing the world!"
