SMP set out from day one to provide the best sales and marketing management solutions to distributors. That focus--plus ten years of proven success--has resulted in what we think is a unique point of view in the wholesale durable goods market. Our new website reflects the growth of that vision. We wanted to provide one place where distributors could learn best practices in CRM, sales management, marketing programs and more. We want to continue to foster a personal relationship between your team and ours, and we need your participation. That's why we're including this blog, video resources, best practice reports, case studies and more for you to read, watch and most importantly, comment.
Video: Why CRM Must Integrate to Your ERP System
As an organization, when you are exploring CRM and business intelligence there are a number of choices typically available for durable goods distributors. However, when you really look at what those choices are, how many:
- Have a team with a proven track record in wholesale distribution
- Maintain robust, pre-built integration modules to your ERP system
- Have developed relationships to become an approved ERP third-party provider or companion product to distribution ERP vendors
When you consider what is really important in running a distribution business, the vast list of choices just narrowed.
SMP has a proven track record and a great history of working with companies in wholesale distribution. As an approved companion product for the leading wholesale distribution ERP systems, we get to define functionality that integrates directly with your existing software.
