Truvo deals in online and printed phone directories in Belgium. The case study studies the company's strategy to manage its sales systems. The company runs a huge and complex system of maintaining directories which lists every single business existing in Belgium. Hence the company needed to install state of the art IT system to deal with the demands of its business.
