SIMS Product Overview

Platte River Systems, Inc, has developed a unique Sales and Information Management System that not only contains all the "Best Practices" models of a traditional CRM but has gone Beyond a CRM using next generation information technology which  allows its products to be virtually networked together to form the world's first truly interactive informational Sales and Information Management System (SIMStm) for every member of the sales channel. 

Efficiency, Control, ProfitChart - Semiconductor Manufacturers Representatives, Semiconductor OEMs, Semiconductor Distributors

By providing seamless connectivity between users of the SIMS system, Platte River Systems has enabled Original Equipment Manufactures (OEMs), reps and distributors to use one system to manage their business, decreasing dramatically the time needed for the sales channels to support each OEM line and increasing the ability to provide more sales mindshare to those OEM lines. 

The more OEM semiconductor and component suppliers that use SIMS, the more efficient the distribution of data gets.    Each company that uses SIMS has the ability to provide a "Guest Login" into their SIMS system and control the data that the guests have access to.  This feature can be used for partners or customers and allows each guest to use the system freely, with security limits set by the principal, on their time schedule and with complete control over the data and functions that they can see.

Imagine being able to pull forecasts from your sales network with the push of a button.  Transfer or pull down a POS report from a distributor or OEM any time you need to.  Follow up on a lead or a design potential generated directly off the OEM website without having to wait for spreadsheets or other reports.  You can even have customers look up their own shipment and backlog history. All this can be done with SIMS while taking away this burden on other members of operations, marketing, direct sales force or the extended sales channel. 

Complete Solution

At the core of the software service that PRS provides is the SIMS system.  The SIMS system is designed to be the complete sales front end for any high tech organization and will integrate with most all modern financial or ERP systems both small scale and enterprise level.   It is configured in three different modules to provide the best combination of integration and ROI for each companies requirements. 


Each module can be purchased separately and integrated together as the demands on the sales channel become more complex.  This saves the customer money and allows a "build as you grow" method of investment in the system.
