Second Year in the Niche Quadrant for the Distribution and Manufacturing Focused Provider

Tour de Force
Our direction over the past 14 years has not been to become a one size fits all solution. Instead, we have focused on developing a feature set that fully meets the unique needs of Distributors and Manufacturers.

Tour de Force, provider of customer relationship management, business intelligence, sales force automation, and business process optimization solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Niche quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation”[1] for the second year in a row.

Tour de Force was one of 16 software vendors that were evaluated as part of the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation, an annual research report that evaluates sales force automation software applications. Gartner Magic Quadrant reports provide a wide-angle view of vendors in a specific technology segment by evaluating each vendor on the same set of criteria, placing them into one of four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players. A complimentary copy of the full report is available from the Tour de Force website at http://www.tourdeforceinc.com/gartner-magic-quadrant-sfa

“For the second year in a row, Tour de Force has been placed into the Niche quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Sales Force Automation. As a software organization that primarily focuses on the Distribution and Manufacturing industries, the Niche quadrant is precisely where we aim to be,” remarked Matt Hartman, President/CEO of Tour de Force, Inc. “Our direction over the past 14 years has not been to become a one size fits all solution. Instead, we have focused on developing a feature set that fully meets the unique needs of Distributors and Manufacturers and expands beyond CRM to include SFA, business intelligence, and business process optimization.”

“With the launch of the Tour de Force Channel Partner Program in early 2015 and our anticipated release of Tour de Force Cloud in late 2015, we are poised and prepared to enter a period of rapid growth,” continued Hartman. “Our focus since day one has been to develop Tour de Force as an extension of our clients’ ERP/back office business systems in order to centralize information, eliminate islands of data, and provide accessible and flexible sales analytics that our clients are otherwise unable to access. We are excited to be able to deliver this functionality to additional vertical markets through channel partners, and to further penetrate the distribution and manufacturing industries with our cloud/SaaS offering.”
