Case Study: Hilldrup

SugarCRM Makes Every Customer Count, Every Time For Hilldrup

Business Issue

As one of the most successful United Van Lines agency groups, every customer interaction is integral to Hilldrup’s success. However, Hilldrup’s customer management system was failing to meet its standards for customer engagement.


  • Maintain consistent customer information that every sales professional could access at the point of one-to-one customer interaction
  • Eliminate reliance on Lotus Notes to track prospects and active clients
  • Enable easy customization
  • Support offsite data access
  • Scale cost effectively

The Solution: Sugar Professional

For its CRM solution, Hilldrup considered Microsoft Dynamics, and SugarCRM, ultimately choosing Sugar and engaging Sugar partner Profiling Solutions. Profiling Solutions helped develop a customized system that could provide the level of service Hilldrup promises every customer. For example, Profiling Solutions created an onscreen notification in Sugar that displays the last time a customer was contacted and the nature of the contact: call, email, meeting, etc.
