About the Company:
RPMS was originally a service business founded in 1969 to fulfill the distinct data processing needs of independent manufacturers rep agencies. At its height the service business collected paper documents from over fifty rep firms. The data was then processed on a mainframe computer to create sales analysis and commission reports.
In the early 1980s, the advent of the personal computer caused the founders of RPMS to port their knowledge to the PC platform. The first RPMS software system ran on an original IBM PC and required DOS 2.1, 512KB of RAM and a 10MB hard disk. Since those early days, over 2,500 rep firms have purchased RPMS.
As the number and needs of the RPMS client base have increased, so has the sophistication of the product line. Today RPMS offers modules for Electronic Data Uploading, Forecasting, Direct Marketing, Accounts Receivable, Inventory, Opportunity and Activity tracking, and others. For a complete demo disk and literature packet, follow the link Contact RPMS.
Our tremendous growth has been fueled by our commitment to continuous development, and our outstanding customer support. We also have created alliances and strategic relationships with a number of top organizations. To review them, follow the link Endorsements and Alliances.

About the Product:
Over 2000 Manufacturers Rep agencies rely on RPMS to organize and manage their business. We are a Recognized Resource of The Electronics Representatives Association (ERA), and the only endorsed software package of the International Housewares Reps Association (IHRA), the Manufacturers’ Agents for the Food Service Industry (MAFSI), the North American Industrial Representatives Association (NIRA), the Safety Equipment Manufacturers’ Agents Association (SEMAA), and the Sporting Goods Agents Association (SGAA). An industry publication, The Sales Reps Advisor, has ranked us as the most popular rep software in every one of their surveys since 1989. No other manufacturers’ rep software package even came close. To see just a few sample screens, click on the items of interest below. Read about RPMS’ features. For a complete demo disk and literature packet, follow the link Contact RPMS, or click here to see a current price list.
The Basic RPMS System is composed of three features.
The Invoice and Commission Tracking feature allows entry of invoices from factory commission statements, creating commission statements for individual salespeople and management reports by principal, sales rep, and customer. Any report can be seen on screen before printing. The basic system also has “snapshots,” which are on-line reports. Requiring little or no extract or processing time to produce, snapshots are real-time views of sales and commission history over the last 48 months for principals, sales reps, and customers. Both reports and snapshots can be directly exported to popular spreadsheets like Excel.
The Commission Reconciliation feature allows agencies to determine if they’ve been paid by their principals, and to create commission statements for their sales reps. Using an intuitive “check-off” procedure, reconciling a complex commission statement is as simple as reconciling a checkbook. The commission reconciliation feature also provides aging reports and cash flow forecasts.
The POS (Point of Sale) feature is primarily intended for electronic components reps. POS tracks sales from distributors, for manufacturers, to customers. Reports can focus on “direct sales” (OEM) or POS sales. Distributor-based reports can be run that display business by customer or by principal. POS can also be used by Gift industry reps and Seasonal industry reps to track shows or seasons. Any rep firm can use POS to track another entity in each transaction.
The Pro RPMS System contains all the Basic system features, plus the Order, Quote, and Sample Tracking feature. This feature provides an order-entry vehicle to monitor the status of orders. Shipments and partial shipments are handled without re-creating entries. Quotes and samples can be tracked using the same data forms. Backlog reports include expediting reports and late-order reports based on schedule date.
