Success/Error Message Goes Here


"We decided to switch to Prophet, and were impressed with how easy it was compared to the other solutions out there. I just open my e–mail and have all the production schedules, customer tracking, and analysis I needed, right there at my fingertips. Because of Prophet, we saw a sales increase of over 30% in the first 6 months. I would definitely recommend it to any small manufacturing company."

- Frank Mueller, CEO R&R Design

"Each salesperson is like their own business. I tell them to look at their business, understand their business, and take responsibility for it. Prophet helps each of us do just that. It keeps us focused so we don’t get lost in the day-to-day. In our business, it is grow or die. And Prophet helps us grow."

- Charlie Frysinger, President Tyoga Container Company

"As we consider expanding CRM systems to our other affiliates our familiarity with Prophet and comfort level with Avidian’s expertise made the analysis easier. It just works, and their supporting services are good — which is refreshing considering the everyday challenges my team face as an IT service provider."
