Lesson 7 MREPS - Customers
Beginning with this lesson you're going to learn about the financial side of MRSware. As multi-line sales reps you need a way to capture and track sales and commission data in a way that makes it easy to view all lines purchased by a customer, or all customers purchasing from one Principal. With the MREPS modules you will be able to enter orders, invoices (with or without line item details), and commissions, do commission reconciliation, and in customers view the resulting numbers in order to better manage your territories.
With Lesson 7 - Customers you will learn how to set up a new customer or edit a current customer by entering the manufacturer(s) from whom they buy (with account numbers) and the sales rep(s) who are assigned to them. Once the information is entered, you will learn how to use the Customer listing in order to view customer's sales in different ways.
Using Customers helps you complete the picture of your customers; combining the activities (Lessons 2 - 6) with sales numbers. The synergy created with MRSware raises your awareness of what's happening with your customer, helping to improve and focus sales efforts.
