Solihull, UK – December 16th , 2008 – sales-i, ( the real-time sales intelligence service for front line sales people today announced that Chicago Office Products Company (, COPCO, is one of the latest US office supplies companies to sign up for its award-winning sales acceleration service. COPCO president, Kenneth Henderson, is already effusive in his praise for the product and its exceptional service levels.

As one of the largest and most established independent office supply dealers in Chicagoland, COPCO is a single-source discount office supplier carrying over 55,000 products with over 33 locations coast to coast. COPCO’s president came across sales-i at the recent United Vision show and was stopped in his tracks as he realised the immediate benefits he and his sales reps could enjoy from this real-time sales intelligence service. Ken explains, “What first caught my attention was that sales-i is integrated into DDMS, that it is available on cell phones and Blackberries and that it provides instant visibility of customer buying behavior, alerting sales reps and sales manager to any changes allowing them to act accordingly. A closer look revealed that is also offers rather cool CRM functionality and interfaces with programs like Outlook and Sales Force. What’s more it is very affordable, too.”

Ken took little time to sign up to the sales-i service and two weeks down the line he is reaping early rewards, “After seeing one demonstration of sales-i at the United Vision show I was totally amazed by the functionality and ease of use. Plus, when I found out that sales-i had such formidable DDMS expertise as Carol Brown on the team, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the product.” Ken continues, “We have already seen many enhancements and we have only been using sales-i for a couple of weeks. My VP of sales and my sales reps are all very excited about the product. Being able to quickly analyze our sales data will help us to uncover many sales opportunities that did not realize we were missing. We are going to make lots of money with this product!”

COPCO is amongst a number of US office supplies companies to be introduced and converted to sales-i at the recent Vision 2009 show. Paul Black sales-i’s co-founder adds, “We are thrilled to welcome COPCO as a sales-i customer. We were overwhelmed by the quantity of people who crowded our booth to see sales-i at the Vision show and we are delighted with the number of companies that have signed up since the event. This very positive endorsement from such a well known name as COPCO means a great deal to us and is testament to the quality of our service and support team who work tirelessly to deliver world class service to our customers.”

Ken summarises, “With dealers giving sales-i input on what we need and the expertise that they have available to them, I can see that sales-i will quickly evolve into a “must have” tool for any dealer that has a DDMS system.”
