Sexton Group member’s stories and testimonials. See what they have to say!
We were basically starting from scratch with multiple new lines and vendors and we had no experience with that; we just had two vendors to deal with before. Sexton helped us set up our accounting system to deal with all that, and for the first four or five months I was on the phone with them every day. Once we got use to the system that slowed down, but they were incredibly helpful getting us started and the rebate system is working well for us.

“Sexton has been phenomenal working with us to meet the specific needs of our business, which are pretty complex. For us, making sure we’re getting the right term discounts and rebates in a competitive market is really important. Sexton’s accounting team provides us with detailed statements, and even modifies statements to the way we need to see them. We had issues reconciling individual statements from multiple vendors, so we worked with Sexton to generate single statements for each of our branches. It was very impressive; our Accounts Payable department is very happy with Sexton.”

“We have carved out a niche in our market by focusing on carrying higher grade lumber and specializing in interior finishing materials, like moulding, construction-grade stairs and pre-hung doors. In our market, we differentiate ourselves by staying competitive on price while providing that extra level of quality and service; Sexton helps us do that"

GAINING THE EDGE. "Price competition is the name of the game in our business, so we need every edge we can get when it comes to purchasing. We feel Sexton is a good fit for us because their commodity buying power and experience is tailored to our type of business. It would be a lot more difficult to be competitive without Sexton's volume; it gives us a distinct advantage for all the products we sell."

MAKING CONNECTIONS “The Sexton office helps us make connections with suppliers and negotiates buying programs for us. I believe working through the buying group provides the product manufacturer with better access to the dealer and gives suppliers a better understanding of the dealer’s needs. Because of that, Sexton is able to negotiate programs that are beneficial to both the retailer and the manufacturer.
It’s essential for us to maintain inventory levels so that we always have what our customers need when they need it. When we encounter inventory problems, the Sexton team will get involved and help work things out for us. Solving the issue is often as simple as the supplier getting back to the Sexton office. And depending on what the issue is, the response time from Sexton is within the same day or the next business day.”
