Keeping employees and businesses competitive is an issue for any business.
In a floor covering business, it’s even more difficult.
With products changing yearly, and upgrades even more frequently, it can be a struggle to keep abreast of changes. Taking advantage of manufacturer’s product and sales programs is a great way to stay ahead of the curve. Most manufacturers have great training programs and have been providing them for years.
One of the keys to success is to learn which manufacturers provide training and information that is not product specific. If you prefer product specific seminars, your sales representatives should be able to point you in the right direction.
Of course, “product neutral” programs are more difficult to find.
Mohawk University, a program through Mohawk Industries, has been providing “neutral” product and sales seminar for over twenty years. It’s a great way to learn how to compare different products within each category and determine which is really right for your customer.
Most of the classes also include a mill tour to demonstrate how the product is made. Mill tours are both insightful and interesting and will provide a better understanding of the carpet production process.
I’ve included a list of upcoming classes and dates. You can obtain a discount for the classes by using the special discount code: “LC17.”
