Why Collaborate with DIS!

DIS has a long history of helping architects, designers, and specifiers achieve their design goals and interceding for them when follow-up seems to stall or be interrupted. By spending time with DIS, you or your team will be educated on some of the latest product advances along with having a source to reach back to whether it be on the products that we brought in or something that you’re simply trying to research. Architects must maximize their billable hours meaning they can’t and generally won’t see every product rep coming through the door but they do see us especially with companies reducing the size of the architectural rep team.

    “DIS was able to get into the smaller to mid-size tier of architectural firms along with covering the larger sized offices. With all the responsibilities that I and my sales team carry on a day-to-day basis, it is extremely helpful to have an organization such as yours go out and saturate the A & D community. I am also pleased with the numbers of specification opportunities you and your team found for us.”

    “For the last several years, DIS has served as a “force multiplier” for Trex in Northern California.  They allow our sales team to remain focused on the service and account management of our current distributor, dealer and contractor channel partners, while DIS educates and qualifies architectural and specification opportunities.  This collaborative approach has significantly decreased the number of inefficient sales calls and made us more effective in expanding our brand presence and growing our business.  We sincerely appreciate all of their efforts on our behalf and value the continued partnership.”

    “When you said your team would go out and present to architects and designers and along the way find specification opportunities you underestimated the results. The various lines that EB represents were very pleased with my results so much so that I signed on for a second year’s worth of representation.”
