SpringCM, which provides document and content management software for Salesforce users, just released Track It for Deal Visibility, a mobile app which enables users to track and understand the status of sales documents.

What's the big deal? Think of the number of documents in your average enterprise repository and then try to work out how many of those documents are related to sales activity and the point in the sales process they apply to.

Track It follows each document and offers users insights into where sales processes are being held up.  The idea here is to avoid contract bottlenecks and to help accurately forecast when deals will close.

Track It works in conjunction with File It, a sales content management system for easily creating, storing, organizing, accessing and sharing documents from Salesforce objects like Accounts, Opportunities, Cases and more

It can be used in Salesforce or with any other CRM software, or directly within the SpringCM platform.
