TrackStar seamlessly connects all users involved with the sales process and provides real-time visibility into and dynamic interaction with key business applications that are part of the sales cycle, including order processing, supply chain and inventory management.

TrackStar is specifically focused on integrating to industry-leading solutions offered by customer relationship management provider Salesforce, enabling increased functionality for their products. It links sales to supply chain, elevating sales performance and enhancing customer service and satisfaction from the time a price is quoted until the product is delivered. TrackStar is easily customizable to fit an organization’s current practices. For example, seasonal sales programs that are traditionally done manually, can now be defined, automatically calculated and displayed in TrackStar.

“We know customers favor suppliers that provide advanced solutions to meet their business needs and sales executives seek better tools to engage and support customers while differentiating themselves in a crowded market,” said Bruce LeBel, president and CEO of ProStar. “TrackStar is redefining how participants interact with business systems – it’s a paradigm shift focused on simplifying productivity.”

In addition to the universal time-saving benefit of all systems access on one familiar user interface, customers have the ability to more effectively interact with their suppliers’ enterprise business system for requesting sales quotes; placing sales orders; inquiring on open orders, shipments and invoices; and for making requests for information. Sales executives have visibility into the sales pipeline and integration with the other business systems to better manage opportunities and coordinate all participants in both normal and exception situations that require action.

Functionality
TrackStar functionality includes mobile and web access with integration to Salesforce and other CRMs, ERP applications, accounting and HR applications, and engineering applications; business process management; intelligent connectors for real-time integration across platforms; and coordination of activities and data for supporting sales executives, their sales teams and their customers.

TrackStar meets the needs of sales executives and sales teams in multiple vertical markets, including food and beverage, manufacturing and other business-to-business organizations.
