A B2B sales app is software used by sales professionals to manage leads, create orders, generate quotes and close deals.
According to statistics, 72% of B2B buyers highly value the convenience of self-service access to accounts and orders.
A B2B sales app may have features such as an automated lead generation system, a lead scoring system, and automated follow-ups, to help the sales professionals improve sales performance by speeding up the ordering process. Another feature may be the ability to give customers access to the salespersons' product catalog so that they can self-order conveniently.
If you're thinking about starting a B2B sales app, start by validating the idea by reaching out to sales professionals for recommendations, and check to see what they say about particular solutions they might already be using.

Ryan Doyle (from New York, NY, USA) started Magic Sales Bot over 2 years ago.
I’m Ryan Doyle, a sales rep who learned to code. I grew up in the Finger Lakes of New York, went to school for Business Administration, and dabbled with their entrepreneurship clubs, making a few websites, and eventually selling one.
I make a lot up as I go along, and I’m constantly adapting to what my customers need. My last big pivot was in November, and since that point, it’s steadily been growing about 10-20% a month. The occasional down-month still helps me reorient and make better decisions, though!
