Marketing Features

“The Business System Integration module in Tour de Force provides us insights to data in our Epicor Prelude ERP system that we didn’t have insights to before. It allows us to analyze that data to see where we need to improve. Tour de Force also provides our Outside Sales team with access to sales data about their Accounts, such as open orders and open quotes. They don’t use the Prelude system, so they completely rely on Tour de Force for access to this key information about their customers.”
