Case Study: Industrial Component Sales, Inc.

“dynaMACS is a big time-saver. To process manufacturer files electronically, all I do is press a button. dynaMACS eSi does the work for me.”

When Industrial Component Sales, Inc. was founded, the agency did not use sales and commission software. As the agency grew, they needed a way to track commissions and easily view information on manufacturers, customers and reps.

The agency chose dynaMACS, and was blown away by how much sales and commission data was available at their fingertips. Industrial Components can calculate commissions, choose how they want to view information, analyze sales trends, view sales histories and much more.

Industrial Components found that the longer they have dynaMACS, the better it gets. dynaMACS constantly improves the software to enhance automation and efficiency.

For example, Industrial Components Operator Chris Mattis uses dynaMACS eSi to process files from manufacturers electronically (like Excel spreadsheets). The newest release of dynaMACS includes an enhancement that saves Mattis hours of time each month because she is able to process manufacturer files even if they have missing information. The “auto dupe” feature automatically populates data that is missing from spreadsheets. “I’m amazed at how quickly I can process files. All I do is press a button and eSi does the work for me.”

Another enhanced feature is “sales rep zip code range,” which speeds up the process of entering new customers. Sometimes, when adding new customers, operators spend too much time figuring out who the sales rep is for that customer’s territory. Now the operator simply defines the sales rep’s territories by zip code ranges just one time. After that, dynaMACS automatically fills in the sales rep, city and state for every new customer.

These are just a few examples of how dynaMACS constantly improves, to save agencies time and money, letting them work more efficiently and focus on their core business of selling.

Case Study: Texas Reps

“I can’t explain how different life is with dynaMACS eSi. Data entry time went from countless hours a month to just a few minutes. It’s like night and day.”

Texas Reps sales agency implemented dynaMACS software over a decade ago and has been a loyal customer ever since, touting the benefits of the easy-to-use software that quickly provides sales and commission data with the ability to perform in-depth analysis.
When Ava Sewell, office manager and operator, joined Texas Reps a year ago, she too began using the software. But she was spending several hours every month manually entering sales and commission information from manufacturer reports. However, while exploring dynaMACS, she came upon a module that her predessor in the office did not utilize: eSi (electronic sales information).

Texas_Reps_StatisticsdynaMACS Solution

eSi electronically and automatically processes files (like excel spreadsheets) provided by manufacturers. Manual data entry from paper or emailed reports is virtually eliminated. Sewell quickly realized the possibilities and benefits of using eSi.

As with any new software feature, Sewell was at first a bit intimidated by eSi’s powerful capabilities. She called dynaMACS support, who she says “walked me through using eSi and helped me every step of the way.”

Once she began using eSi, her job changed forever – for the better. Now that she is up and running, Sewell reports, “I can’t explain how different life is with dynaMACS’ eSi. Importing data into our system is so easy now. I used to spend countless hours a month on data entry. With eSi, it literally takes just a few minutes. All I do is click a few buttons, and eSi takes over. It does what it needs to do automatically. It’s a night and day difference.”

Once she imports the data and updates dynaMACS, she emails the information to sales managers. They have current sales and commission data in minutes and with a few mouse clicks, can perform in-depth sales analysis.

Even now, when Sewell has a question, the dynaMACS support team is there to help. In fact, she says, “agencies who don’t utilize dynaCARE support might not use the software to its full potential.”

Case Study: Wes Coast Marketing

“Access to sales & commission data is instant. No waiting. dynaMACS eliminates the time lapse.”

Chris Mitchell
Operations Manager, Wes-Coast Marketing

Like most agencies back in 1998, Wes-Coast Marketing was using Excel spreadsheets for sales and commission data. The agency “got by” with it, but reporting and analysis capabilities were bare-bones. A few years after launching, Wes-Coast experienced exponential growth in a relatively short period of time. Spreadsheets no longer filled the bill. The agency needed a powerful, technologically sophisticated software solution to manage and track sales and commission data, Operations Manager Chris Mitchell explains.

Wes-Coast chose dynaMACS software and was immediately impressed with the instant on-screen access to all sales information. For the first time, the agency was able to combine and analyze sales for all manufacturers in one database and provide sales reps with up-to-date sales reports. Principal Jim Marino remembers the pre-dynaMACS days. “It was an antiquated, paper-driven process that resulted in lengthy delays in getting information.”

Since switching to dynaMACS, Wes-Coast realizes the value of powerful agency software and takes advantage of the newest features as they are released.

First, the agency’s field salespeople and principal were equipped with dynaMACS Mobile on their laptops, so they had access to sales and commission information from anywhere as soon as the agency distributed it electronically. “Before dynaMACS Mobile, once a month we would mail out reports. By the time the reps saw the data, it was a month-and-a-half to 2-months old,” says Marino.

Next, the agency became an early adopter of the latest dynaMACS advancement: cloud processing. The team sees real-time data. They have the most recent figures, can get high-level sales information, drill down to detailed information, and send reports to reps – even email up-to-date reports to customers.

“Everything is instant. No printing stacks of paper. No waiting. The time lapse is eliminated,” says Mitchell.

Case Study: High Performance Tooling

“Time is money. When we need technical support, dynaMACS response time is immediate. They solve our problem quickly so we can get back to selling.”

High Performance Tool

High Performance Tooling is always in sales mode. The agency needs information on manufacturers and customers instantly. The fast-paced agency needed faster access to more in-depth information than RPMS software could deliver. Even more frustrating was trying to get technical support. “When we called, we always got voicemail. They called you back when they got a chance. It could be hours; it could be the next day,” says Pierce Ellis, co-owner of High Performance Group. “Time is money. We don’t have time to wait for a call-back for technical support.”

Ellis came across dynaMACS at a trade show, and was impressed with the level of in-depth information the software provided. Data could be accessed instantly, and he could drill down to in-depth information with just a few mouse clicks. So the agency purchased dynaMACS, and the challenge of getting lightning-fast access to valuable information was solved.

But could dynaMACS live up to the agency’s need for fast technical support? Ellis says the dynaMACS support team has exceeded his expectations. “The dynaMACS response time is immediate. The support team solves our problem quickly so we can get back to selling. “We know we can call dynaMACS, talk to friendly and helpful support staff, get the issue resolved and continue with our day efficiently without waiting around.”

High Performance Group partners have dynaMACS Mobile, so they can take sales and commission data with them wherever they go – and still quickly call for technical support.

Ellis gives dynaMACS the highest recommendation: “We will never switch to different software. We love working with dynaMACS.”

Case Study : The Ranger Group

“I would recommend dynaMACS to anyone.”

Bob Flint, Partner
The Ranger Group

After being in business a little over a year, and with sales growing, it quickly became clear that The Ranger Group needed software for tracking commissions, analyzing sales and paying reps. “We were trying to use Excel spreadsheets, but it wasn’t providing the depth of information, or the flexibility we needed. Sales analysis was merely a by-product of accounting,” says Partner Bob Flint. In addition, sales reps did not have timely, reliable and in-depth data on customers and manufacturers, which was inhibiting sales and account management.

TheRangerGroup_StatisticsdynaMACS Solution

Flint was introduced to dynaMACS at a trade show, where he saw a demo of the software and decided it was just what the agency needed.

Since purchasing dynaMACS, top sales reps at The Ranger Group are now equipped with dynaMACS Mobile, so they always have the most recent sales and commission data on the road with them. Rather than preparing individual reports for reps, dynaMACS mobile eliminates the work and automates the process.

In fact, dynaMACS Mobile is so beneficial, The Ranger Group purchased dynaMACS Mobile for three more of its sales reps. “It’s a big help to have up-to-date information before walking into a meeting with a customer,” Flint says.

Manual tracking processes and cumbersome spreadsheets are a thing of the past. The Ranger Group has easy access to higher levels of data intelligence, which enables them to serve manufacturers better.

“Rather than being rows in a spreadsheet, our sales and commission data is transformed into meaningful information. I would recommend dynaMACS to anyone. dynaMACS lets us communicate better with our manufacturers and customers, improving our value to both,” Flint says.

Case Study: Head Contract Solutions, Inc.

“We used our old software for a year and realized we had made a mistake. dynaMACS is much easier to use, and relevant information is easily accessible.”

Liz Head, Owner and Manager
Head Contract Solutions, LLC

Head_Contract_Solutions_LogoClient Challenge

Head Contract Solutions was expanding, hiring new sales reps, and trying to use Excel for sales and commission data. The agency needed deeper information than Excel could provide. So a hunt for new software commenced. Although hindsight is 20/20, the agency based its software decision mostly on price. It turned out to be a case of “you get you pay for.” Liz Head, owner and manager of Head Contract Solutions, described the software as “grueling.” It was not easy to learn or to use and the agency still wasn’t getting the in-depth data they sought. Using the software was making the agency less productive, instead of more.

Head_Contract_Solutions_StatisticsdynaMACS Solution

And so a second software search began. This time, Head Contract asked colleagues at other sales agencies what software they used. One name came up time and again: dynaMACS.

Head said what the agency saw in dynaMACS was, “a fast, flexible and reliable way to manage all of our sales and commission data.”

Head says dynaMACS makes it easier to pay sales reps, and she finds being able to access a 5-year sales history with a few mouse clicks extremely useful.

One of the biggest benefits for Head is the ability to import manufacturer sales and commission reports without manual entry. “We’ve pretty much eliminated data entry. We receive manufacturers’ sales invoices and commission statements electronically. It literally saves hours. For just one manufacturer a month, there are up to 400 lines items to cover each brand and every dealer. Before dynaMACS, stacks of paper would arrive and all the information had to be inputted by hand.”

Head says dynaMACS lives up to its reputation of a powerful performance analysis tool. “Our productivity and accuracy has grown exponentially, and we have only scratched the surface of what dynaMACS can do.”
