Yesware’s goal in life is to help sales people close deals by tracking and gauging the efficiency of their email communications with customers. Was the message opened? When and how many times? Yesware sheds light on what too often becomes a black hole.

Now, it’s adding two new features to aid in that battle. Yesware Reminders lets the user set up a time in the future to check in with the recipient and that reminder will bubble up pertinent information about that prospect — how many emails were sent, when and where they’ve been opened, if they’ve been opened. That feature competes with options from Baydin and

And Calendar Sync, as the name implies, lets users sync up appointments that are often scrambled between Google (s goog) Calendar and crm) — a key concern given how many sales people use those applications. That feature competes with Appirio’s Cloud Sync.

  1. This sounds like an amazing tool. Currently I am using to set follow-ups on emails I want to be sure I get a response from. TickleTrain allows you to create any number of unique pre-determined follow-up emails with complete control. So if you don’t get a reply, every lead, invoice, customer, etc. will get a personalized follow-up email as if they were sent by you. I wonder if Yesware application can work with TickleTrain?

    Great tool indeed.

    Another interesting auto-sync app is Datafield, allowing to create an email sign up form on mobile/tablet and instantly sync with a Constant Contact / Mailchimp mailing list.

    Great for offline businesses : retail, event, trade show, restaurants…
