 Insider Industry Secrets Revealed
 Thursday, August 9 • 9:45 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Do you know how your employees are obtaining the information in order to service your customers?  If they are relying on your customers to supply them with the part numbers and service information, then you definitely need to attend our service member panel discussion to learn the “Secrets of the Industry”. This panel will reveal how to obtain service information, part numbers, cross reference information and much more, all available to you free of charge. This information will assist you in in competing and, more importantly, having the correct and up to date information.
