Etelos announces a new way for people to access their Customer Relationship Management System – through their Apple iPhone.
“Etelos CRM works great on the iPhone” Etelos CEO Danny Kolke said in the press release. “It allows you to get access to your tasks, projects, appointments or any of your other business processes while you’re away from the office. It’s almost as good as carrying a laptop.”
