Covering Your Assets 2: Sign Shop and Samples
July 30, 2018
Covering Your Assets Part 2 introduces additional parts of how
salesmen can execute selling and tracking assets as efficiently as
Execution is arguably the most important part of any functioning
operation. One can have a rough plan, but no structure. Employees, but
no objectives. Tasks, but no efficiency. Once a plan or specific
structure is executed, and executed well, then an operation can be as
successful as possible.
Time and Money
Hand in hand with execution, any task must be carried out in order
to limit time and save money. But, as the saying goes, one has to spend
money to make money. This is where proper execution is vital. Investing
in something worth your while can be a saving grace to the same time and
money. That's where Encompass Sign Shop and Samples comes in.
Sign Shop and Samples
The benefits of using Sign Shop and Samples are the same as Asset Manager:
A centralized and standardized request process
