Why eRep for Distributors

WHY DO

Distributors Need the eRep Solution?

Distributors, Manufacturer’s Reps, VARs, and Resellers lifeblood is sales.  And every week, your sales teams are losing orders because they can’t get a quote out in a timely manner.  Or they don’t have time to follow-up on previous quotes.

That’s why you need to be able to find, price, and quote quickly and accurately from multiple supplier price lists. And management can generate reports without having to distract sales.
