Findlay, OH (PRWEB) February 02, 2015
Tour de Force, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise customer relationship management, business intelligence, sales force automation, and business process optimization software solutions, has announced the launch of a Channel Partner Program. As the Tour de Force organization has continued to grow over the last 14 years, so has the opportunity for a broader based distribution model that will complement the existing direct sales team. Ken Ledyard, Director of Channel Sales, will manage the strategic and tactical operations of the newly created Channel Team in order to extend Tour de Force into a new distribution model intended to expand sales, services, and support to the market.
“I’m excited to announce the official launch of the Tour de Force Channel Partner Program,” stated Ledyard. “We have built a program that will offer considerable value to organizations who elect to partner with Tour de Force. Based on the power of our solution and the benefits built into the Channel Partner Program, we will attract talented resellers looking to offer additional value to their prospects and clients while growing their organizations.” Ledyard continued, “Tour de Force solutions are rich in features and functionality that scale from small business to enterprise level organizations. We currently offer extensive integration with over 40 leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and are continually adding new systems to that list. Organizations that currently partner with existing ERP, CRM, and BI solutions will find our program very compelling, regardless of their size or industry focus.”
Although the Channel Partner Program officially launches in February 2015, several enterprising organizations signed on to the pilot version of the program in late 2014. One of those organizations was Earnest & Associates (E&A), a professional services firm based out of Glen Burnie, MD. E&A supports mid-market companies in the wholesale/distribution and manufacturing industries and is a leading representative of ERP software from Infor. Tom Birdwell, Marketing Director at E&A, remarked, “The Tour de Force Product is a natural complement to the other products and services we currently offer. We are excited about the additional value we can offer to our clients. We have worked with several publishers and the Tour de Force Channel Partner Program is well thought out and provides a tremendous growth opportunity for us.” Ledyard added, “I am highly encouraged that the program is delivering on commitments based on the feedback from some of the earliest partners to join and validate both the product and the program.”
The Tour de Force Channel Partner Program offers flexible programs for organizations who wish to add enterprise customer relationship management (CRM), sales force automation (SFA), business intelligence (BI), and business process optimization (BPO) software solutions to their suite of offerings. Partner opportunities exist for organizations who are focused on professional services, software service and sales, business consulting, IT consulting, and for any organization whose current customers and prospects have an identified need for a CRM, SFA, or BI solution. The Channel Partner Program has multiple tiers designed to accommodate a range of partner involvement, providing partners with the flexibility to sell, implement, and support Tour de Force solutions.
Tour de Force, Inc. develops, sells, implements, and supports enterprise software solutions with a focus on customer relationship management (CRM), sales force automation (SFA), business intelligence (BI), and business process optimization (BPO). While Tour de Force was developed specifically for the distribution industry, it’s an ideal fit for any organization that operates in a B2B selling environment, and is currently being utilized in the Distribution, Manufacturing, Construction, Furniture Dealer, and Technology industries.
