Tigerpaw Software, a leading provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions for small and mid-size businesses, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Solutions Division (TAIS DSD) to sell Tigerpaw Business Suite to their authorized dealers. Under the agreement, Toshiba’s dealers will have the opportunity to purchase the Tigerpaw Business Suite to help improve their operations and also provide them the ability to resell Tigerpaw’s entire product line.


This new alliance will also allow TAIS DSD’s dealers the opportunity to increase their effectiveness within their organizations by providing them a real time CRM/ERP solution. Tigerpaw’s Business Suite provides all service related businesses the power of contact management and sales force automation and links these to customer support and inventory management for seamless business operations.

The Tigerpaw Business Suite is a group of integrated CRM software modules for contact management, sales management and quoting, customer service, and inventory control. The Suite is designed to track prospects throughout the sales cycle and all touch-points with customers after the sale. There are four modules in the Suite: Pursuit™ for contact management and marketing; Quotes for sales force automation, opportunity management, and line item quoting; Service & Repair for customer service, maintenance contracts, and technician tracking; and Parts for purchasing and inventory tracking.

“Effective customer relationship management is one of the most strategic opportunities for a company, so it is with great pleasure that Toshiba Digital Solutions Division has aligned itself with Tigerpaw Software to offer the Tigerpaw Business Suite, an effective customer relationship management solution, to the Toshiba network of authorized dealers,” said Larry Meyer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for TAIS DSD. “By offering Tigerpaw Business Suite to our dealers, it is our goal to help them run their businesses more efficiently with stronger management for their customer relationships.”

The Tigerpaw Business Suite works in conjunction with a TAPI link for the Toshiba Strata CTX telephone system. Functionality such as this offers greater efficiency by enabling users to dial out of Tigerpaw’s Business Suite, as well as providing screen pop capabilities for incoming phone calls. The combination of the TAPI link and the Tigerpaw’s Business Suite allows for businesses to increase their bottom line by increasing efficiencies and offering world class customer support.

Commenting on the announcement, Dave Foxall, CEO of Tigerpaw Software, said, “The Toshiba alliance represents Tigerpaw’s continued push into the service related marketplace. Toshiba is a highly recognized brand and this relationship will only help to keep both companies on the leading edge of technology offerings.”

Jeffrey Kaldahl, Director of Sales and Marketing for Tigerpaw Software said, “This alliance with Toshiba DSD is a monumental step forward for both companies. It represents our total commitment to providing the best of breed business solutions to small and medium size business.”
