• Deliver Analytics with Purpose, Not Mounds of Data

    Submitted on: Thu, 06.22.2017 01:42am - admin

    I am married to an amazing ER nurse. In her world, a patient’s symptoms indicate which tests to run for a diagnosis. The nurses and doctors don’t approach the patient like this is the first time they’ve seen a fever and rash from a bug bite, they simply follow a protocol. The book has already been written. The algorithm has been designed. Decades of research into data and billions of dollars have been invested to say, “if this, then that”.
     
    Why can we not apply the same logic to our distribution customers and their “symptoms?” They buy too much of this and not enough of that. They place too many orders. They have too many returns. They have us quote 1000 jobs to every 1 that is accepted.

  • Using Analytics to Attract and Retain Tech-Loving Millennials

    Submitted on: Mon, 06.05.2017 06:22pm - Annie Eissler

    Millennials love technology. Whether they’re Snap-chatting, posting on Facebook, or using a mobile phone to hail a ride on Uber or Lyft, this huge generation was literally born with technology in its hands and grew up taking for granted many of the modern conveniences that older generations had to do without during their formative years.
     
    This reality presents both opportunity and challenges for distributors that need to get up with the times if they want to effectively attract and retain workers aged 20-37, which currently number 75.4 million and comprise the nation’s largest living generation, according to Pew Research.
