Chicago, ILAugust 06, 2013- Successful businesses often know that the key to growth is understanding their customers' needs and habits. That’s exactly why three years ago, Tractor Supply Company, the largest retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States, chose SourceLink, LLC, a leading multichannelmarketing services provider, to build and maintain their marketing database. Over the ensuing years, Tractor Supply has come to rely on SourceLink for marketing strategy and consulting, analytics, campaign management, and other multichannel services. Therefore, Tractor Supply has now extended their strategic partnership with SourceLink for an additional three years.

A core component of the marketing database infrastructure is SDL Campaign Manager that enables data visualization, ad hoc queries, multichannel campaign management and reporting.
