Why use a Manufacturer's Representative?
We have an experienced sales team that can build product brand awareness into accounts throughout our territory quicker and more economically than normally would be affordable for the manufacturer. More salespeople on the street equates to more customers being exposed to your products.Lower cost
Our compensation is a known and fixed portion of the sale. Factory direct salespeople require a salary, health insurance, travel and other expenses to support your sales growth, therefore reducing your profitability. Knowledge, expertise and relationships
The knowledge and experience our sales team possesses about our territory, the products we represent and our customers is an unbeatable combination. Our manufacturers have the ability to capitalize on our customer relationships to open new sales opportunities that might not have been there prior.Synergistic selling
We provide synergistic selling to our customers across all of our manufacturer's product offerings. We value our ability to listen to the customer so we can provide solutions that best fit their needs, budgets and expectations. This is accomplished since we have the chance to show them many solutions at the same time.The customer is #1
Customer satisfaction is our primary concern. We develop long and deep relationships with our customers by offering value, quality products and the support to back those products up. We don't just make the sale; we follow through at every step to make sure the customers' expectations are met before and after the sale.
