  • We provide a comprehensive solution for hiring, developing and supporting your sales network.
  • Low Cost Solution in setting up and managing a sales network in North America
  • We build your sales network based on your market and sales needs
  • Initial and continued training to the Reps and Distributors on your company’s products and services
Ardent’s database of Manufacturers Reps and Distributors makes it easy for us to engage with multiple reps at one time and build networks quickly and efficiently.

The Ardent Difference:

Related services provide a database of Manufactures Representatives, but only advise on how to utilize it and build a rep network. Ardent uses our current active reps and database to develop a rep network for the manufacturer. We do it for you.

More Opportunities Means More Sales

Ardent has access to over 5800 sales reps and has the largest active rep base in North America. Opening doors at the world’s largest companies takes a world class sales network. We can build it for you.
