Improve Sales with Better Manufacturer Rep Tracking

Where are your reps? What leads are they working on? What percentage of a competitor's product is being carried, promoted or sold over your own? What would need to be done at the point-of-sale to improve your sales?

Westlake assisted an up-and-coming window manufacturer (Milgard) in tracking and managing these questions to improve performance and sales. Our solution combined a wireless form on a Blackberry with photo capture support and GPS tracking. Our solution was put in place to drive accountability as well as to improve sales metrics. For Milgard, Westlake created the following benefits:

  • GPS Tracking ensured that the reps where were they were suppose to be
  • The completed form helped the marketing department to focus on highly specific marketing campaigns down to the individual store level
  • Integrated photo support helped the management team gain a better understanding of how their product was being positioned in the store and what could be done to make improvements

Sprint Nextel supports a similar function. Sprint ensures that their retailers are properly positioning their products, and have the proper training, inventory and merchandising materials. See the Sprint Nextel Case Study.
