"They [John and Todd] do a great job breaking things down for different levels of employees."
— Annette Goodman, Metro Sales Inc. (MSI), Burnsville, Minnesota
"[The most helpful information] was the model and the percentages shown on what the most successful businesses are achieving. I can’t wait to get back and input our actual numbers into the model to see how we compare."
— Matt Hansen, River Bend Business Products, Mankato, Minnesota
"[The workshop] was very informative and I look forward to starting to apply [what I learned] to our business."
— Ben Hansen, River Bend Business Products, Mankato, Minnesota
"The financial model, the story that relates to the information and pitfalls that companies get into with the model were most helpful."
— Ashley Bell, Bishop Business, Omaha, Nebraska
"[It was helpful] to know that other dealers have the same issues we do in regard to comp plans, etc. [I learned] that we can fix any issues if we follow the model and don't discount the aftermarket. Being a family business, I found it very insightful, as I am currently dealing with those dynamics."
— Matt Pokorney, Advanced Office Systems, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
"The exercises were fun for me, but I'm in finance. Everyone around me appreciated accounting for once! I loved getting the spreadsheets. [Learning how to] use the numbers to drive the business [was helpful]. It takes out the guesswork."
— Julie Toth, Plus Inc., Greenville, South Carolina
"We use [the ProFinance] model, so this gave me a better understanding. "
— Chip Gums, Novatech, Columbia, South Carolina
"Having commonalities [with other attendees] is reassuring and knowing that no matter where we are, we have the same issues and stories. [It was helpful to] know that I can reach out to others in the industry, have a sense of community among my peers and that we can learn from each other."
— Lou Borja, Integrated Business Solutions, Aiea, Hawaii
"[The most helpful parts were] learning about what kind of expenses go in each bucket to best evaluate how a company is doing. Working in AP, having a better idea of what bucket an expense will hit when the monthly reports are put together will help me understand how to look at invoices differently. Emphasizing that the service is what we sell and not the product was also helpful."
— Travis Butler, Novatech, Memphis, Tennessee
"It [the information] was all very helpful. It was nice to see what components we are following, and what we can review and do better. It was also very helpful to have time to talk with others. I learned a lot from each section, and really enjoyed the compensation and culture sections."
— Destre Crawford, Standley Systems, Chickasha, Oklahoma
"I enjoyed the entire class. It was my second time to attend and I found it much better this time."
— Deah Surver, Standley Systems, Chickasha, Oklahoma
"I loved everything! So informative! I learned a lot and really connected all the departments together. Some people may be so compartmentalized they don't realize the other parts of the business need attention. Including culture is important and some leaders feel culture makes itself, instead of them needing to create and cultivate the culture. Todd was an exceptional speaker and very motivating."
— Katie Maggs, Solutions YES LLC, Portland, Oregon
"The model was extremely helpful to cross reference what we're doing today and how it stacks up. The timing of the training was perfect. You can tell both gentlemen have been doing this for years. Having them be part of our industry helps tremendously. Bravo!"
— Mike Fair, Pulse Technology, Schaumburg, Illinois
"Going through the 'math to build the model' worksheet and solve problems was excellent. Thank you so much. This has been a really valuable use of time."
— Cliff Davis, Capital Business Systems Inc., Fort Collins, Colorado
"As always, very well done and extremely professional."
— Tom Tegeder, James Imaging Systems Inc., Brookfield, Wisconsin
"Learning about what needs to be adjusted to fix profits was extremely insightful. Selling more is not just the answer."
— Nicole Morgan, MOEbiz, Monroe, Louisiana

— Carol Catanzarite, Boring Business Systems, Lakeland, Florida
"Being new to the industry, the breakdown of the model helps me have a better understanding of what I am learning daily."
— Melissa Bryant, Boring Business Systems, Lakeland, Florida
"I appreciated the training; it was very helpful and impactful."
— Steven Ness, Liberty Business Systems Inc., Fargo, North Dakota
"Great work guys. I found this [workshop] helpful and look forward to implementing [the information] into our dealership. The day two material was very insightful, as my company is still trying to determine how to diversify and explore other ways to generate revenue."
— Marcus Taylor, Cobb Technologies, Glen Allen, Virginia
"Being extremely new to this job and the industry, I can say that I leave here more knowledgeable of how the industry measures itself than I would have otherwise. Benchmarking only works when data is consistently applied and you did an excellent job of detailing how to get there."
— Steve Nardo, Cobb Technologies, Glen Allen, Virginia
"I really liked the whole course, but I particularly liked the sales compensation portion and the IT insights."
— Michael Piche, Automated Business Products, Centennial, Colorado
"This course is great for anyone who is presented the model but asks questions each time they see it. I was given the model upon starting with my company, but my understanding of the how and why has greatly improved."
— Scott Flaherty, Altek Business Systems Inc., Telford, Pennsylvania
"This was my third time through. These guys have helped me change the direction of my organization. I could not be more pleased with all the new IT information."

— Cory Spice, Wisconsin Document Imaging, Green Bay, Wisconsin
