SAN FRANCISCO – December 5, 2023 – FSIoffice, the nation’s leading independent office supply company, is the latest distributor and wholesaler that is gaining significant competitive advantage through newfound sales opportunities with SugarCRM, provider of the award-winning AI-driven CRM platform.  

With more than 250 employees and nine distribution sites, FSIoffice (Forms & Supply, Inc.) is one of the largest independent office supply dealers in the world. For over 60 years, FSIoffice has grown to adapt to the changing work world from traditional offices to schools and remote spaces. Its product portfolio includes more than 40,000 different items, including office supplies, furniture, janitorial products, coffee and breakroom staples, along with printing and promotion.    

FSIoffice implemented Sugar Sell as its CRM solution, working with Sugar partner CRM International to transition from manual spreadsheets to an all-in-one CRM platform and advanced sales automation solution. Enhanced reporting and analytics make the hard things easier, enabling the company to identify sales opportunities while simultaneously engaging with its customer base of 20,000 and growing.  

In addition, FSIoffice integrated predictive business-to-business (B2B) sales intelligence from sales-i which surfaces powerful data-driven sales insights and opportunity alerts based on customer buying behavior.  

Sugar is fully integrated with FSIoffice’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, uniting front- and back-office data. This integration supports real-time analysis on purchase orders and payment terms, giving FSIoffice a 360-degree customer view to boost sale efficiency and unlock newfound revenue opportunities. 

Adding transactional data to the mix, augmented by predictive B2B sales intelligence, allows FSIoffice to be more targeted in its sales and marketing approach.
