Excellence in Data Entry

The EDE Award is an annual review of product data provided in RepLink by industry merchandise suppliers. Judging is done by the independent incentive reps who use the merchandise information to prepare proposals to sell their customers. The award was started to help suppliers focus on the importance of good information that leads to increased sales and reduced customer service.

Reps grade each supplier in the following four categories using a 1-5 scale:

·      Do the products included in RepLink accurately reflect merchandise actually available?

·      Is the pricing, dimensions, and description information correct?

·      Are all the spec sheet and proposal fields filling in completely?

·      Do the product descriptions create desire and help 'sell' the line?

Suppliers shown here have been honored for their commitment to maintaining accurate and complete information about their merchandise along with compelling descriptions and quality product images.
