Backwards or Forward? on June 10, 2013

I work in a company that is a sales based company.  Although I view my role here as more public relations oriented after all what I’m really selling is myself and my abilities. Even though, sales are still a big part of our business as they are for most businesses in America.  Sales are what drive profits.  Sales are the reason I come to work every day.   If everyone in the country suddenly stopped buying anything, no one would have any… Read More

Flex and Express – By: Brian Bernadel on June 3, 2013

The Importance of Compatibility – By: Josh Breese on June 3, 2013

A big part of my job at Better Direct is reaching out to customers and IT folks on a daily basis. One of the things I like to bring up is compatibility.  As a value added reseller it’s my job to ensure you’re getting the right product for the right job.  One of the nice things in dealing with Better Direct is; we are trained to be concerned with compatibility.    When something is not configured correctly or the wrong part is ordered, the first and usually the… Read More
