If you participate in Benjamin Moore OSR (Outside Sale Rep) or CCP (Contractor & Commercial Pricing) programs, Paladin can create the reports required by Benjamin Moore.

Important notes:

  • If you use the OSR program, you must perform some initial setup steps (see procedure below). If you are only enrolled in the CCP program, there is no set up required.
  • The OSR report feature is not supported for Ace Hardware stores that use Ace Rewards because it adds new customer types. Ace Rewards stores cannot edit the customer types list.

This article contains these procedures:

How to set up the Benjamin Moore OSR report

  1. On the File menu, click Setup.
  2. Click the Customer Types tab.

    2. In the Type box, enter the rep’s name, prefixed by OSR.
      Example: OSR Mary Owen
