To maximize the effectiveness of vendor sales calls at our branches, we ask that vendor reps follow the guidelines below.
  • Unannounced branch visits are not acceptable. Any visits must be scheduled and approved by the branch manager. This will guarantee the time and attention needed for a successful meeting. 
  • A specific agenda provided by the vendor rep will be shared prior to the visit. This allows preparation for any questions the branch sales team may have regarding new products, action and marketing plans, and target customers. 
  • Joint field customer sales calls with vendor reps are encouraged. These meetings are approved by the branch managers and scheduled with the branch customer service representative. The Allied CSR will provide an agenda prior to making calls.
  • Branches have only the authority to issue purchase orders for non-stock items that have already been sold to a contractor. All other purchases and consignments are to be approved by the Purchasing Manager Ron Gregg.  
  • All branch sales personnel have a significant say on any new potential products that are inventoried by the company. New product suggestion forms are provided to all branches for this purpose.
