Escape: A tool for your field sales force
The Escape™ Sales Force Automation Software system is designed specifically for manufacturers who depend heavily on field sales representatives to sell their products to retail outlets. In most cases, this field sales force enters all the orders on behalf of their retail accounts. Escape consists of a suite of fully integrated Windows-based components that work with your existing "back-end" (ERP) system to automate and streamline your order entry, management and tracking process.
Challenged By Orders That Involve Logos, Custom Art and Embroidery? Escape Can Help!
"Custom Art" is the embellishment (embroidery, silk screen, appliqué, plackets, etc.) that is applied to your products in response to an order. Data associated with custom art includes the identification of the art (e.g., embroidery tape number), price, and applicable customer. Restrictions as to the type of product or the location on a product may also be included.
Provide Images And Data During The Ordering Process
Escape can provide your sales force and B2B customers with both data and color images of all available approved embellishment artwork, specific to the customer, and to the product and location on the product at which the art is to be applied. Only the art that fulfills all of these criteria will be shown. Thus, the opportunity for mistakes is greatly reduced.
Recognizing that specification of custom art involves more than selecting the desired pattern, Escape also provides the capability to:
- Specify text ("name drops") that should be included with the art.
- Specify the colorway (e.g. "tone on tone", "club colors", etc.).
- Include special instructions.
Your customized products ordering process has been greatly simplified by:
- Eliminating guesswork in selection of artwork.
- Eliminating embellishment placement errors (i.e., selecting art that is not appropriate for a particular product, or location on the product).
Include Art Images On The Order Form
And, of course, we can include the selected art on the order form to further confirm the selection. You and your customers will never be in the dark again about product customization!
