for Financial Success Systems to Help Their Members More Conveniently Sell
Products on the Go
Boston, MA, April 16, 2010 --(PR.com)-- ROAM Data, Inc., the only mobile commerce service provider
to deliver payment-related applications on hundreds of mobile phone models easily and securely, today
announced that it has partnered with ACT Merchant Services, a national provider of credit and debit card
processing services, and Financial Success Systems (FSS), a premier provider of CRM systems, to
provide a customized mobile commerce solution for Herbalife distributors.
FSS provides advanced CRM, lead generation, sales and training tools for thousands of direct sales
distributors. ROAM and ACT worked with FSS to create a customized mobile commerce solution for
FSS members, consisting of thousands of Herbalife's distributors in the United States. With the new FSS
Mobile application, members can now process orders quickly and easily and accept credit card orders
with their own mobile phones.
This unique solution combines the patented technology of ROAM Data with a merchant account solution
from ACT designed specifically for the direct selling community. With FSS Mobile, users can input a
SKU number and order quantity using almost any type of mobile phone. FSS Mobile automatically
calculates the total plus shipping, tax and applicable discount, then processes the payment and sends an
email receipt to the customer.
By automating the transaction, FSS Mobile decreases the time it takes to process each sale, and increases
distributors' productivity. The functionality is so easy to use it also makes showcasing products more
enticing, increasing the distributor's activity rate.
“FSS mobile is more than just turning a cell phone into a POS terminal,” said Will Graylin, founder and
CEO of ROAM Data. “We were able to quickly customize a solution so FSS members can quickly and
easily process orders, and allow them to track their transactions and customers.”
