TAMPA, Fla. – (June 16, 2008) – Guerin Rife Putters, LLC (RIFE Putters), has selected Tribridge, a national Microsoft consulting firm with customers across the United States, to implement a fully integrated business management application using Microsoft Dynamics GP.
With more than $25 million in annual tour earnings in just three years, sales of RIFE Putters are booming thanks to the manufacturer’s growing popularity as the putter of choice for many top-ranked professionals on the PGA and European Tours. While golf club manufacturers typically pay for product sponsorships, not a single tour player is paid to use a RIFE putter.
To meet the increasing demand for putters, RIFE needed to replace its existing accounting software with a fully integrated application that will allow for growth and expansion without constraining the system. RIFE Putters currently distributes its products to retailers and also sells directly to customers through its Web site. Tribridge will implement the Microsoft Dynamics GP Advanced Management solution customized for RIFE’s specific supply chain and distribution management requirements. The solution will also handle the manufacturer’s advanced financial and reporting needs.
