Why would you need a manufacturers rep or vendor rep?

In the early days of Walmart Sam Walton made a decision to share sales information with his suppliers to better manage his business.

This information was made available in a database called Retail Link. Retail Link has grown to be the largest relational database in the world, bigger than the US government.

Walmart buyers are too busy to look at every store and SKU that they manage. They expect their suppliers to manage their account.
