Front-Runner Workshop: May 14, 2014
It's time. Selling boxes and focusing on end-of-lease hardware upgrade opportunities was the status quo for many years. Looking back, they were great years, even decades, to be in the office technology industry. Many got rich. However, end users have changed. The market has changed. The world has changed. These changes all point to one thing: It's time for your dealership to change as well.
2014's Cruise to Success, open to BTA member and non-member dealers from across the country, is all about providing dealers the framework to change — to transform — their dealerships in order to reap the rewards of today's opportunities. Many dealers are already there. Many more are only beginning the transformation process. Others are just thinking about it. Join your fellow dealers and 39 exhibitors on May 15-16 in Chicago to learn how to get to where you need to be. Call it: "The Five Critical Steps to Transformation." You won't regret it. Neither will your bottom line.
