Distributor Analytics: So What?

Friday, September 21, 2018
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. CST

Lately it seems you can’t read a publication in the distribution world that doesn’t tout the many benefits of analytics for staying competitive and growing your business. But how can analytics help your company?

Join MITS for a webinar where we will explore the many ways distributor analytics can help your organization capture more cash, boost profitability, and increase customer satisfaction and engagement. We’ll show you specific examples of how you can:

Track performance against company goals – align your teams around company goals and get visibility into their success—or identify performance in need of improvement
Discover problems you may not know about – easily spot numbers trending the wrong way and quickly drill down to find and fix the source of the problem
Improve sales team performance – with scorecards that identify the most important accounts and information to focus on, sales reps can increase the quality of their calls, and see where they might be losing out to competition
Reduce time spent running reports – self-serve reporting gives your teams the information they need when they need it, freeing up IT to focus on more important projects You’ll also get to see the MITS solution in action, including a demo of some of the 200+ reports, dashboards, and scorecards covering sales, inventory, purchasing, and AR that come ready to run out of the box.
