Distributors and manufacturers who select Tour de Force for their Tribute CRM software typically have the following objectives:
All Tribute BI software programs have the first goal covered. They offer a wide range of reports and analytics that can be used to uncover trends, identify top accounts and at-risk accounts, top product lines, top vendors, etc.
The problem with many of these business intelligence software programs is the second goal – actually acting on that data! Most business intelligence software solutions are standalone applications that require data to be manually imported and exported from your Tribute or TrulinX ERP system, making it difficult to take any sort of structured action on the results. Many BI programs also lack any sort of structured permissions, which means that by giving a salesperson access to the system, you are giving them access to ALL of your organization’s sales analytics.
Tour de Force allows you to efficiently and effectively achieve both goals.
There is no manual importing required, as your sales data from your Tribute or TrulinX ERP system is automatically synced to Tour de Force. Tour de Force’s extensive permissions structure means that your sales team only sees the data that you want them to see. A salesperson may only be granted permissions for their own region, for example, while a sales manager may be granted permissions for all of the regions of the representatives that report to him or her.
Tour de Force integrates with your Tribute ERP system to deliver a full-featured Business Intelligence software solution.
This intersection of sales data from Tribute and business intelligence software from Tour de Force provides analytics, reporting, and dashboards. Tour de Force transforms raw data from your ERP system into a tool that you can put directly into the hands of your sales team in order to identify trends, optimize business processes, and ultimately, increase sales and revenues.
