Sarasota, FL. Repatron announced that sales agency, Decker and Associates, based out of the Hampton Roads area of VA, has launched their website using the Repatron service for Rep/Sales Agencies. The new site is online at www.deckerandassoc.com .
Decker and Associates is an award winning sales agency servicing the Mid-Atlantic/South Eastern US market with national manufacturers in action and leisure sports . Decker and Associates represents top tiered brands: Nordica, Never Summer Industries, Tecnica, Blizard, adidas Outdoor, Helly Hansen, Casio/GShock and Soze Group. Principal of the agency, Brad Decker, recognized by retailers as the 2010 SIA South Eastern Rep of the Year, has countless years of experience as both a retailer and a sales agent representing national brands. Repatron provides affordable and innovative sales agency branding/dealer support websites specifically for the outdoor industry. The service is available as a cloud offering and is built using industry leading Google technology. The Repatron service for Rep/Sales Agencies is currently being offered at the introductory price of $610.
â€œI've had fun working with Brad on this website, says Peter Pawlus, Director of Rep Technology (DRT) at Repatron. â€œI've known about Brad's agency for a while but did not really approach him as he already had a pretty cool looking website. After meeting with Brad, I found out that while it was pretty snazzy, it was built a couple of years ago using Flash and was difficult if not impossible to update. As a Flash site, it was also invisible to the search engines and did not display on iPads or iPhones. Brad's business in snow and action sports is constantly changing with a lot of innovation and technology. He needed a service that could respond to the pace of the industry. As Repatron is built using the latest Google technology, it is easy to work with and is quickly searchable with search engines like Google. We've added some current features like a YouTube channel for his agency to feature their brands and a show scheduler that ultimately displays on the rep's iPad, iPhone or Droid phone. Brad also has a slideshow of current and new products as well as a changable playlist of tunes that play in the background...all to promote the lifestyle and energy found in action sports. www.deckerandassoc.com is a site where we were able to incorporate several web apps and the latest learnings we have from a technology and a sales agency perspective. The ability to learn and then rapidly incorporate improvements into the Repatron sites gives us an advantage over the older build it and watch it rot websites.â€
â€œAt this point, every rep/sales agency should have a website. That is the new minimum in the industry. You then step above your peers when you add dealer support functionality to an already professional branding website. If done properly with a service like Repatron, it adds a new level of professionalism to reps and sales agencies and provides a higher level of value-add for their retailer customers.â€
