Starting June 2019, Vendasta has partnered with Crankwheel to bring instant screen sharing to salespeople. This feature is now available to all Vendasta partners with access to Sales & Success Center.
Why is it important?
Many salespeople using Sales & Success Center work in remote offices or from home, and use technology to share their screen during sales presentations. Using 3rd-party screen share software can often get in the way of sales, as prospects often are left struggling to find a link they need to click to join the meeting and are then asked to download software that may or may not work on their device.
Crankwheel is screen sharing software that launches instantly and allows prospects to view using any browser, desktop or mobile device. Through Vendasta’s integration, Sales & Success Center users can start sharing their screen through any account, without needing to login to other 3rd-party software.
How does it work?
To start sharing your screen with Crankwheel, login to Sales & Success Center, or impersonate a salesperson from Partner Center by clicking Sales > Salespeople > Impersonate.
Click on any account. Then, click on Share Screen at the top.
Click on the contact you wish to share your screen with, and wait for Crankwheel to load. If you don’t see the contact on the list, click Cancel, then scroll down on the account details page and add them under Contacts.
If this is your first time using Crankwheel, you’ll be asked to add the extension to your browser (Chrome only at this time). Once installed, head back to Sales & Success Center and repeat the above process.
Once Crankwheel is loaded, you’ll have options to start sharing your screen. You can connect viewers by sending them a link through text message, email, or a direct URL.
How much does this cost?
Crankwheel is free to start using. With your free plan, you have unlimited access to for your first month, and each month past that it drops down to 25 interactions. If you require more interactions, you can explore their paid plans here.
