Being a showroom salesperson is a demanding job. In addition to intimately knowing the products on the showroom floor and in the warehouse, you are expected to remember where the product is, if it has special pricing, what products substitute for it and what companion products to sell with it. On top of that, you are typically on your feet for most of the day traveling well-worn paths around the showroom floor. Today’s digital distributors are utilizing digital tools like smartphones and tablets to address these challenges and grow in-store sales.

Get the Right Insights into Your Distribution Business

The wholesalers who are most energized and, often, most successful, are the ones who understand that technology is a sales and profit enabler- not a cost center. They are continually looking for ways to grow their business, harvest additional competitive value from their systems, and when those systems have been maxed out, they carefully select a new system with proven potential to drive their growth for over the next several years.
