Talisma was chosen based on implementation of its CRM software by Tupperware, the number one provider of food storage, preparation and serving items. “What Works: Ten Significant CRM Implementations of 2001” provides examples of excellence in CRM implementations without regard to conventional vendor-oriented yardsticks such as size, market share, or the SIC code of the end-user customer. Aberdeen analysed the CRM industry to identify the most significant implementations from last year, and the case studies presented are based on in-depth vendor and customer interviews and analysis. “Winning this award continues to validate Talisma’s product capabilities and shows off the flexibility required of CRM software in today's challenging businesses environment,” said John Brooks, Technical Director of Talisma. “I’m proud of everyone at Talisma and the team at Tupperware for doing such a fantastic implementation.” Talisma CRM and Tupperware Tupperware looked to Talisma to help it provide immediate “live” online assistance to its primarily non-technical sales force in an effort to bring their sales consultants online and provide direct assistance with sales order processing.
