The Evolution of Retail
How did we progress from the small-town general stores of the past to the fast-paced, big-box, chain store and online retail world of today? And how can we learn from the mistakes of retailers before us to launch ourselves into a successful retail future?

The Next Era in the Health Care Retail Transformation
Today’s HME market is flooded with competition. We’re being squeezed into a changing industry with some very big players. Being the underdogs in this evolving market, how do we stand out in the crowd and provide our customers with something the big players can’t match?

Using Data to Drive Current Performance and Predict the Future
Retail is about constantly responding to trends, inventory turns, and sales demands. It’s about changing your offerings to satisfy continually evolving customer wants and needs. In order to be successful, retailers must know how to track and analyze data and implement changes based on the trends. We’ll teach you the best data strategies to use to drive performance.

A Holistic Strategy to Solving the Problems your HME is Facing
Every retail business works and feeds off the performance and success of all of its moving parts. Each piece of the business, from marketing, to products, to store layout and staff training, is integrated and dependent on the others. Learn how to create a successful, well-rounded and positively performing business by building each piece of your business to operate in sync.
