Webinar Participants Will Learn:
Only a few years ago, ceramic tile distributors were among the most profitable firms in all of distribution. However, economic realities beyond anybody's control--especially in the construction sector--have lowered profits for almost every firm. This webinar will review the alternative routes back to high-profit performance. It will examine where to cut costs and where not to cut, the hidden gross margin opportunities that still exist and the path to higher sales volume in a stagnant market.
