TurnLink Sales Manager
The TurnLink Sales ManagerTM is a web based Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software solution for manufacturers and manufacturer representatives. TurnLink allows you to keep track of the myriad of data that encompasses the manufacturer, store, distributor supply chain relationship.
MapMyStoresTM is a customer/store locater for your consumer web site. MapMyStores allows you to drive traffic to retail locations where your products are carried or could be carried. Consumers enter a zip code on your retail web site and a list of stores from a database you maintain is displayed.
The TurnLink Sales Manager allows you to seamlessly export orders to all versions of Intuit's QuickBooks. By providing each of your reps a TurnLink account to place orders on the web with you can prevent them from accessing your QuickBooks file. This integration eliminates double entry of orders into two systems. A variety of customization options are available to ensure TurnLink and QuickBooks are in synch.

How much does TurnLink cost?
TurnLink is a monthly fee based on per user pricing. Pricing starts at $150/month and includes one user and one free MapMyStores license. Each additional user equates to $25/month. There are no annual contracts or setup fees.
Is there a setup fee or any hidden costs?
There are no setup fees. Our support team guides you through the process of setting up your account via email tutorials and online screen sharing meetings using join.me. We provide free support and training for the first 90 days. Templated Excel files are tested and imported by our professional team at no cost for 30 days. After 30 days imports cost $25 for up to 2500 companies per import file. Custom projects to extend the 'out of the box' functionality of TurnLink or MapMyStores can be quoted on a per project basis.
What type of computers/devices will your software run on?
We support both Apple and Microsoft operating systems including the iPhone and iPad. The latest version of the Mozilla FireFox or Internet Explorer browser can run our products. Other browser and hardware combinations may also work with our applications, contact us to find out about compatibility with a different configuration.
Do I have to sign up for a year or can I pay month to month? What is the minimal contract length?
Our products are all month to month. There are no annual or minimal contract lengths. We are confident that our solutions will meet your needs. We do not force you to commit to a new software application that is new to your organization.
Is there a desktop version? Do I need internet access?
At this time TurnTree does not offer desktop versions of our applications that operate 'offline'. Our products require an internet connection to use them. We do allow you to export data as Excel spreadsheets for reference when you know you will be going somewhere that does not have internet access. We also allow you to share documents and photos inside TurnLink via Google Docs which can facilitate other remote access possibilities.
How does TurnLink connect to QuickBooks?
The manufacturer of QuickBooks is Intuit. Intuit provides a free piece of software called the 'QuickBooks Web Connector' that allows TurnLink to connect to your QuickBooks file. Our staff will help you set this up so the two systems are in synch at no additional charge. This allows your entire sales team to place orders remotely into TurnLink and one-click importing of Sales Orders and/or Invoices into QuickBooks.
Do you offer Professional Services? What if I need a report or feature that your system doesn't have?
If TurnLink does not offer a report or functionality that is needed yet it is important to the way you run your business, we have a professional services team to analyze your requirements and offer implementation solutions. This team will quote the project on a per hour basis to add custom functionality to your account.
Can I get a copy of my data out and save it on my own computer?
Almost all of the data in our applications can be exported in one way or another. Our software is built using a proprietary database that provides unique relations to store the data. Because of this, there is no way to create a flat export of all the data at once, however you can export all the data in your account via several different export options.
Are your applications secure?
Yes, our products are secure. You can access our service via an https:// url. Https allows access via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) that provides the same level of security, 128 bit encryption, as your bank or credit card web sites.
What happens if TurnLink goes down?
We employ the latest technologies and procedures to ensure you always have access to your account. Infrequently, there may be times when servers need a restart or power or internet access is temporarily interrupted. In these situations, our backup servers at a separate physical location have a copy of our software and your data ready to use. We also have three monitoring systems that independently alert us of any foreseeable problems so they can be averted. Our team will rapidly respond to any issue that may arise.
Is my data backed up?
Yes, your data is replicated to an off-site database server in real time. We also have full backups on our primary machines every four hours. By using our applications you no longer need to worry if a machine in your office goes down and someone forgot to backup important sales documents. TurnTree securely stores your data in a cloud-based system that is backed up in real time.
How do I get started? Where do I sign up?
Getting started is simple. We require everyone who is interested in our applications to setup a free demo account to take a look at our capabilities. Once you see our software in action you can activate your account on your own time. Or better yet, contact us and our team will walk you through the activation and initial setup process.
How do I learn to use your software?
We offer free training for all of our solutions using GoToMeeting. We also have a series of documents and checklists to help get your organization started. Your success is the key to our success. Our team will take any reasonable steps to ensure your account is configured to best suit your business operations and that you and your staff are trained and happy with our system.
