Global Test Supply

Like many business owners today, Robert Preville, president of Global Test Supply, saw the power of the internet had in serving a wide range of customers in different industries. But Preville also realized the importance of personal client interactions. Combining both principles he has been able to use a web-and-mortar business model to create a company serving about 15,000 test equipment parts and customers worldwide.

Preville said the company gains its competitive advantage from both the people he employs and what he calls the business control center, which is a back-end CRM platform. Through the Control Center program, GTS can manage sales leads, product information and market information. Global Test Supply is currently in its 5th year of business. Preville states, The Entrepreneur Center has provided an invaluable service networking Global Test Supply with local resources necessary to maintain our growth objective.
