ADVANTAGES:

Long Term Customer Relationships:
Manufacturers’ Reps don’t get promoted or transferred. Limited turnover facilitates long term relationships with key decision makers at your important customers.
To insure we meet the expectations of our principals and customers, YPE maintains a team of highly experienced experts drawn from the industries we serve. YPE's staff has been dedicated to an active approach which keeps our company in front of our customers.
Solutions and hands-on attention as well as acountability make YPE the first call made by our customers and the manufacturers we represent.


Access to Critical Information:
Because of the long term customer relationships reps have, they have access to critical information than can make the difference between success and failure. The customer may also be more open with a rep as the customer often sees the rep as more of a third party advocate for them with the manufacturer.


Synergy:
Reps handle multiple lines that are complimentary to your products. Because of this, reps are well entrenched with multiple disciplines at your customers. Reps therefore have a complete picture of the customer’s operations and requirements. Whether an opportunity starts with engineering, purchasing, planning or operations, reps may know about it sooner than a sales resource that only deals with a single group as a result of only having a single type of product to offer. Reps can also cover multiple needs a customer may have in a single meeting because they represent multiple lines. This makes the customer’s life easier in today’s world of reduced staffing and proportionally increased work loads.


Low cost: A manufacturers’ representative can be a cost saving solution to marketing your products. Fixed and overhead costs normally associated with a direct salesperson are covered by the manufacturers’ representative. These include support staff salaries, automobiles, air travel, hotels, telephones, computers, pension, healthcare, field office costs, and much more. The manufacturer pays a commission based on performance only. If the market is slow, or during long sales cycles the manufacturer’s sales cost are negligible when using a manufacturers' representative.
