Larry Gerber, Inc.
Larry Gerber, Inc., is a Manufacturing Rep firm based in the Northeast United States, providing sales services for fabrics and related soft goods. The primary customer base for this firm is the Interior Design business.
Larry Gerber, the owner of the firm, had been looking for a commissions software that would calculate commissions on a monthly basis. Larry’s firm represents many different manufacturers, each of whom had their own unique commission rate programs. It was a very complicated set of calculations to complete for his representatives.
Larry had been using a Fox Pro based application called SBT for his accounting needs. SBT had recently been acquired by Acc Pac, another accounting software vendor. Larry had this to say about his current environment “Record keeping was a nightmare and it was very difficult to get the reports I needed out of the system.”
Larry asked his accountant to find a software system that would fill his needs. His accountant was using QuickBooks and was able to find QCommission that integrates with QuickBooks. After a discussion with the QCommission salesperson, Larry was able to decide on using QCommission on the same day and bought the software. He also will be using QuickBooks for his accounting needs.
