Fenton, MO (PRWEB) December 4, 2007
IRON Solutions and Optus Inc. today announced they are working to enhance the efficiency and value Quote Pro Sales Suite delivers to agriculture equipment dealers in North America with value-added sales of NEC key systems. In addition, IRON Solutions announced its Quote Pro Sales Suite (QPSS) has been certified for integration with NEC's key telephony systems. This agreement was initiated by Optus, Inc., a leading distributor of NEC key and IP telephony systems.
"Optus is constantly striving to find ways to help our customers make their businesses run as smoothly as possible," said Mark Duckworth, president and CEO of Optus in Jonesboro, AR. "Working with IRON Solutions and NEC to improve communications is another unique value we have delivered."
For two years running, NEC has been ranked first in worldwide enterprise telephony equipment and key systems market share by Gartner. The new enhancement to IRON's QPSS now allows equipment dealers using NEC key systems to be instantaneously connected with their customer's profile, appraisals, quotes, and purchase history. Upon receipt of a customer's phone call, the NEC console within IRON's QPSS recognizes the customer's phone number and through an auto pop-up feature, displays key contact information from the database automatically onto the dealership's computer screen.
"From equipment appraisal guides to inventory management to fully-integrated CRM tools, IRON Solutions has long been providing business solutions to equipment dealers throughout North America," reports Scott Derksen, Senior Vice President, Technology and Development. "Quote Sales Suite is a complete Sales Management software solution for equipment and tractor dealers to improve profitability and communication in their sales department across all dealership locations. IRON Solutions is proud to be strategic partners with both Optus and NEC Unified in introducing a new capability throughout our market vertical."
"Mergers and consolidations throughout the equipment dealer industry are increasing the number of multi-site dealerships with centralized management. The ability to network multiple sites together into a single business communication solution brings significant productivity and customer service enhancements," said Ed Martin, vice president of Optus in Jonesboro, AR. "We understand the tremendous value equipment dealers will realize through true unified communication solutions. The Optus Network is there to support dealers seeking improved voice, visual and data communications, no matter where they are located."
