      Three of the four ways that smaller companies can gain a competitive advantage—Financial, Talent and Technique—were covered Part 1. Now I’ll cover the fourth.  

    • Distributor Differentiation through Value Added Services – Part 1

      In 2003, I partnered with Tom Gale, editor of Modern Distribution Management magazine to write a NAW/DREF book entitled Standout from the Competition . Through extensive primary research, the book examined how distributors across North America differentiated their firms in various market environments. 

    • Bringing Excitement Back to Accounts Payable

      A few years back, I was doing a visit with a customer. We were meeting with various departments to review their processes to determine if there was room for improvement. When we got to accounting, a young man walked in and said "Hi, I’m the Lead AP Clerk – I’m bringing Excitement Back to Accounts Payable". To this day I laugh whenever I think of that. Not sure the word "excitement" has ever been used to define Accounts Payable. But maybe it should.

    • Going Mobile to Disappear
      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.
