Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® Selects Faye Business Systems Group and SugarCRM to Streamline Sales Processes
Woodland Hills, California – December 4th, 2012 – SugarCRM, the market-leading customer relationship management (CRM) company that enables effective customer engagement, today announced that Natural Balance Pet Foods®, a pet food manufacturer and distributor, turned to SugarCRM and Sugar Gold partner Faye Business Systems Group to implement a new CRM application to assist with the growth of sales and improve sales management processes and visibility.
After evaluating numerous CRM solutions, Natural Balance® chose SugarCRM based on key solution requirements, including sales mobility for remote access to customer information, and strong sales process management capabilities and tracking. In addition, with its varied global customer base, Natural Balance® also required the flexibility to configure its solution to fit its business and provide the ultimate customer experience. SugarCRM not only met the requirements, but also offered ease of implementation and affordability when integrating the platform with other Natural Balance® applications like ERP and Marketing.
After choosing SugarCRM, Natural Balance® engaged Faye Business Systems Group, a SugarCRM Gold Partner and Developer, to help design, implement, and deploy the solution.
“We were looking to increase our ability to monitor marketing and sales activities, simplify remote access to customer information, and improve management processes throughout the sales cycle,” commented Joey Herrick, Founder and President of Natural Balance.® “Upon assessing numerous CRM systems, it became evident that SugarCRM was the only CRM system that really demonstrated everything that we were looking for.”
