    Default get the first crack

    Can you please tell me the sense of this expresion?

    One was the software they were purchasing in-house. A large expense that software companies don't like is having a field sales force go and do one-day demos. So we partnered with the software vendors to go do the one-day demos in our geographic area. And, in return, we get the first crack at all the companies who are at the point of purchase.

    It means to be the first to have a chance at doing something. In the case of the sentence, the first to try to sell the software to the companies which are there.
