2013 Product Support Opportunities Handbook
The answers to maximizing product support sales are complex – many are the customers, and many are their needs. The AED Product Support Opportunities Handbook is tailored to give distributors an inside understanding of where the business is going and why, as well as a detailed analysis of the customer service skills it will take to bring the lion’s share of product support work back where it belongs – in the AED factory-authorized dealership. This is the ultimate sales tool for every product support manager.
