NAW and PROS are partnering to provide wholesaler-distributors with essential tools to help their digital transformation journey. Through a series of webinars, podcasts, and NAW’s “Innovate to Dominate” research study itself, we look forward to outlining the roadmap for distributors to create B2B innovation and get ahead of the increasingly disruptive and transformational forces. Distributors will not only see into the future of distribution, but they’ll step into it with world-class, scalable solutions.
Get the distributor’s essential roadmap for innovation
The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) has published its newest, groundbreaking research study, “Innovate to Dominate: The 12th Edition in the Facing the Forces of Change® Series.” Since its inception in 1982, NAW’s respected “Facing the Forces of Change Series,” continues to provide insights about the overall future of wholesale distribution and the role of wholesaler-distributors. Already a best seller, “Innovate to Dominate” is every distributor’s essential roadmap for innovation. The primary purpose of this research is to help distributors connect the dots between the forces of change and innovating the distributor business model. NAW is proud to have PROS as sponsor of its 12th Edition.
