On May 19, the National Electrical Manufacturers Representatives Association announced that Illinois-based Crescent Electric has endorsed NEMRA’s POS/POT Minimum Reporting Standards.

Debra McCashin, National Vice President of Supplier Partnerships for NEMRA, said Crescent has been providing POS information to many of its manufacturers.

“We recognize the importance of POS data for our rep community,” McCashin said. “It is critical to our success as we stand up DC’s across the country.”

Crescent currently has three distribution centers supporting its branch network. The company ranked No. 11 among electrical, data & security distributors on MDM’s list of 2022 Top Distributors.

“On behalf of the NEMRA independent manufacturer representatives, we appreciate Crescent’s endorsement,” said Jim Johnson, President of NEMRA. “As companies grow through acquisition and by transitioning to an RDC model to serve their branches and customers more efficiently, the importance of POS reporting becomes more vital in ensuring independent manufacturer representatives are compensated for providing local support. Every distributor that does business with manufacturers in multiple territories can benefit by adopting the NEMRA POS standards. Thank you to Crescent for recognizing the opportunity and supporting NEMRA representatives.”

In 2014, members of the NEMRA and NMG (NEMRA Manufacturers Group) commissioned a study to understand the state of POS. The initiative was an effort to identify how the POS process “could be improved to ensure reps were accurately compensated,” the group said. Read more about the initiative here.
