Using this extension, the Magento store can off-load their new lead generation and management tasks to set of their approved Franchises.
Franchises are given with their own login credentials. The Franchisee can create their sales employee logins and back office employee logins.
The back office employees can create new leads to be followed by the sales employees. Each lead can be assigned with particular sales employee.
Then the sales employee can get their list of leads to followed and update their follow-up and closure status online.
