Delivering Integrated Solutions to Petroleum and Fuel Distributors

Tour de Force has announced the addition of AIMS, Inc. as a strategic addition to the Tour de Force Channel Partner Program. Through this partnership, AIMS and Tour de Force deliver an end-to-end, integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence (BI) and business process optimization (BPO) solution targeted at petroleum and fuel distributors. Ken Ledyard, Director of Channel Sales at Tour de Force said, “The team at AIMS has a great product suite targeted for the wholesale petroleum industry, especially bulk oil and lubricant distributors, and we are excited to partner with them to expand the Tour de Force brand into this new market. We already have mutual clients who are benefiting from the power of our combined solutions, and together we have a great opportunity to expand upon that success and provide value to other companies in the industry.”

“AIMS is excited about our partnership with Tour de Force and their ability to pull data directly from our accounting software, COMPAS Commander. This partnership will provide AIMS’ clients with a whole new level of data mining and data management,” said David Dorries, Director of Sales and Marketing at AIMS.

The announcement of the Tour de Force and AIMS partnership is also being welcomed by mutual clients. Kathryn Reppond, CFO of Central Oil & Supply, said, “Commander and Tour de Force are both business critical applications for us. The interface between Commander and Tour de Force has allowed us to better manage our sales data, create sales and inventory alerts, and streamline our workflow processes. We anticipate this partnership will continue to extend the value we leverage today.”

“The partnership with AIMS and specifically their flagship product, COMPAS Commander, continues to reinforce to the market one of the key differentiators of the Tour de Force solution, which is our ability to integrate with and provide significant incremental value to a businesses’ ERP system. The petroleum industry expertise AIMS brings to our partnership is priceless. One of the driving factors of creating the Tour de Force Partner Channel in early 2015 was to expand the Tour de Force brand into new markets and partners such as AIMS are helping enable us to accomplish that goal,” said Ledyard.
