Shippers Supply, Inc. Hits Aggressive Growth Initiatives With Tour de Force

Shippers Supply, Inc. an independently owned and operated wholesale distributor of shipping, packaging, industrial and productivity/equipment solutions was founded in 1928 in Hopkins, Minnesota and serves the upper Midwest.

Due to growth, Shippers Supply needed a more complete solution that would provide CRM, SFA (sales force automation), BI (business intelligence), and would sync data from their Infor ERP system. They also wanted a system that would allow them to access information from mobile devices and would give them the ability to analyze and manage their sales pipeline.

The team at Shippers Supply chose Tour de Force CRM because of its capabilities for integration with Microsoft Outlook, the integration with the Infor system, and its overall configurability. Tour de Force CRM offers a virtually unlimited number of user defined fields, which allows every company to configure the system to meet their specific needs and processes.

Tour de Force CRM was also able to provide a complete CRM and SFA solution that would allow them to manage their sales pipeline and would provide their sales team with mobile access. According to Jeff Schuppe, Director of Sales and Marketing at Shippers Supply, “The Tour de Force CRM system gives us the ability to link the past with the future. We are very excited to tie our sales pipeline into our strategic business planning process. It will help us to make more calculated business decisions as we continue with our aggressive growth initiatives.”

In addition to the business planning features in Tour de Force CRM, Shippers Supply also uses advanced reporting functions, the Alerts & Notifications module, and tablets for their outside sales team to use Tour de Force CRM Mobile.
