Sarasota, FL & Austin, TX - Repatron and Synergy Reps jointly announce their collaboration on a new way to support retailers in Action Sports. The new web app is online at synreps.com and is available on Facebook.
Run by princials CM Slocum and Charlie Harris, the Synergy Reps agency was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Austin, TX. CM and Charlie have over 30 years combined actions sports sales experiences. Synergy Reps is a force in The Southwest and California action sports sales and brand growth strategies. Built on a sell in, service, and territory brand promotion business model, retailers and manufacturers have benefited from working with Synergy Reps and the brands under its management. Synergy Reps is dedicated to providing solutions, feedback, growth and progressive methods to keep the manufacturers & retailers prospering.
Repatron provides affordable and innovative sales agency websites and facebook apps specifically for sales agencies in outdoor and action sports.
"I was stoked to connect with Peter Pawlus & Repatron," says CM Slocum, Co-Principal of Synergy Reps. "Repatron is way ahead of the industry trend of connecting manufacturer Reps to the dealers in their territories with the fast pace of social networks and online future potential of reps selling and servicing their dealers with web based tools. With my action sports background and Peter's outdoor background, it's refreshing to weave through the conversation of our recent trips, adventures, or events laced up with some techno business to build the dealer content rich website for Synergy Reps. Finding that common thread of interest with your technology guru is huge. Repatron has helped position Synergy Reps ahead of the status quo with our competitors."
“Synergy Reps rocks.” says Peter Pawlus Principal at Repatron. “They work hard and play hard. CM didn’t hold anything back and wanted state of the art for his dealers. They have the REPatron Next Generation platform as well as on Day 1 their Dealer Only site plus the REPatron Facebook App. It’s been exhausting. They are definately a positive force for their manufacturers. As Repatron is built using the latest Google technology, it is easy to work with and is quickly searchable with search engines like Google. Synergy Rep’s site has a rolling video wall of action athletes and brand features. Synreps.com is a site where we were able to incorporate several web apps and the latest learnings we have from a technology and an outdoor 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.”
“At 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.”
