How it works?
Most of you already have a profile on LinkedIn and are linked to a number of people and companies. Same might be the case for Twitter, Facebook and a number of other social networks, which means there is probably a lot of information that is already coming your way.

- Prospecting – Find new prospects
- Researching – Visualize key data with sales graph
