Sarasota, FL. Repatron announced that sales agency, Wittman Sports, headquartered in Banner Elk, NC, has launched their website using the Repatron service for Rep/Sales Agencies. The new site is online at www.wittmansports.com .
Wittman Sports is an established 4 season sales agency servicing the Southeastern US market with national manufacturers in outdoor and action sports. Wittman Sports represents: Ride Snowboards, Volkl Skis, Marker Bindings, 5150 Snowboards, Contour Cameras, Gore Bike Wear, Sidi and Ritchey. Principal of the agency, Wade Wittman teams with Rep Tim Ollis with over 20 years experience in the action sports industry. Repatron provides affordable and innovative sales agency branding/dealer support websites specifically for the outdoor industry. The service is available as a cloud offering and is built using industry leading Google technology. The Repatron service for Rep/Sales Agencies is currently being offered at the introductory price of $610.
â€œWade brings a laser focus on the business and I am glad he has chosen to work with Repatronâ€ says Peter Pawlus, Head of Rep Satisfaction at Repatron. â€œWe had spoken for a while about the web and how best to leverage it for a sales agency. Wade decided to pull the trigger after a sit down at the EORA Greenville primary show. Wittman Sports covers all 4 seasons but also has a unique depth in snow sports and cycling which is very impressive. We’ve highlighted that specific differentiator in their website. www.wittmansports.com is a site where we were able to incorporate several web apps and the latest learnings we have from a technology and a 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.â€
â€œAt 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.â€
