PROS Webinar: Realizing Revenue, Profit Growth for Wholesale Distributors

April 26, 2016
Media Alert

WHAT:          Global wholesale distribution executives kick-off every year with familiar emotional mantras and always with theme and messages surrounding growth: Get to a Fast Start; Crush it in 2016; or In it to Win. 2016 is no different, with executives expecting their teams to deliver revenue growth up to 10 percent.

Despite the C-suite focus on growth, a soft economy and sagging sales are standing in the way of 2016 success. Companies face increasing pressure to drive both top- and bottom line results.

This informative webinar will offer insights and real-world examples of how data science-driven analytics can help wholesale distributors consistently realize their revenue and profit potential:

  • Adopt data science to transform pricing strategies into a competitive advantage
  • Leverage prescriptive analytics to accelerate sales growth
  • Supercharge the value of CRM with embedded guidance to simplify the customer experience

WHO:             Join PROS and its guest speakers:

  • Mike Marks, Managing Partner, Indian River Consulting Group
  • Sean Duclaux, Director of Industry Marketing, PROS

WHEN:          Thursday, April 28, 2016

2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PDT
