Your sales manager should get acquainted with something called "the 
Internet". The sales people should only log into the website providing 
service, instead of carrying the database around. Also, they shouldn't 
be carrying "notepads", "laptops" or any such contraption, they should 
be carrying iPads.  Make sure to spell it right, "iPad" is not the same 
as "iPod".   Your sales manager has a lot to learn.
