    • Distributor Differentiation through Value Added Services – Part 2

      You’ll recall from Part 1 in this two-part blog series, I began sharing insights from the book I partnered with Tom Gale, editor of Modern Distribution Management magazine to write entitled Standout from the Competition. Through extensive primary research, our book examined how distributors across North America differentiated their firms in various market environments.
      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. 

    • Prophet 21 Instrumental to Achieving Growth Goals

      From a 500 sq. ft. office and warehouse facility when Cohn and Gregory first opened in 1977 to five branches totaling 100,000 sq. feet at the present time, no doubt, the wholesale distributor of pipes, valves, and fittings is gearing towards expansion.

      Munch's Supply Company is one of the leading heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment parts, and supplies distributors in the United States. Over the past 20 years, Munch's has continually expanded from their New Lenox, Illinois headquarters to 10 additional warehouses and store centers.

    • Largest Full-Service Distributor of Shoe Repair in U.S. Retains Leadership

      Southern Leather Company is the largest full-service distributor of shoe repair and store supplies in the United States. Founded in 1912, the company is a fourth-generation family business with warehouses in six major American cities. It carries widely recognized merchandise from leading vendors— including nearly 20,000 in-stock items ranging from fitting aids and care products to buckles, fasteners, cleaners, and foot-related medical accessories.

    • 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.
