Depending on what exactly you mean by "3 reps per quarter" a panel data (wikipedia) model may make sense. This would mean that you're taking three measurements ever quarter, one from each of three distinct sources that stay the same over time. Your data would look something like:
obs quarter value
A 1 2.2
A 2 2.3
A 3 2.4
B 1 1.8
B 2 1.7
B 3 1.6
C 1 3.3
C 2 3.4
C 3 3.5
If this is what you're looking at, there are a number of models for working with panel data. Here's a decent presentation that covers some of the basic R that you would use to look at panel data. This document goes into a little more depth, albeit from an econometrics standpoint.
However, If your data doesn't quite fit with panel data methodologies, there are other tools available for "pooled data". A definition from this paper (pdf):
Pooling of data means statistical analysis using multiple data sources
relating to multiple populations. It encompasses averaging,
comparisons and common interpretations of the information. Different
scenarios and issues also arise depending on whether the data sources
and populations involved are same/similar or different.
As you can see, from that definition, the techniques you're going to use are going to be dependent on what exactly you expect to learn from your data.
If I were to suggest a place for you to start, assuming that your three draws for each quarter are consistent over time, I would say start by using a fixed effects estimator (also known as the within estimator) with a panel data model of your data.
For my example above, the code would look something like:
> Panel = data.frame(value=c(2.2,2.3,2.4,1.8,1.7,1.9,3.3,3.4,3.5),
> fixed.dum <-lm(value ~ quarter + factor(obs), data=Panel)
Which gives us the following output:
lm(formula = value ~ quarter + factor(obs), data = Panel)
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
-1.667e-02 -8.940e-17 1.667e-02 8.333e-02 -1.000e-01 1.667e-02 -1.667e-02

Here we can clearly see the effect of time in the coefficient on the quarter variable, as well as the effect of being in group B, or group C (as opposed to group A).
Hope this points you somewhere in the right direction.
