Cloud ERP R.O.I. Simplified

2018-03-03T08:43:13+00:00

Any residential solar panel salesman knows that one of the most powerful sales pitches is the Return On Investment pitch (R.O.I.) A simplified R.O.I. calculation in the residential solar panel industry is to divide the total price of installation by the monthly average electric bill. That typically computes to anywhere from 5 to 7 years. “Think about it”, the salesman says, “in 7 years you will be free and clear.” If you Google ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) R.O.I. Calculation you [...]

Let’s be direct: If you sell to consumers, sales tax is an issue

2018-04-01T21:09:19+00:00

Repost from Avalara Getting closer to the customer is no longer a retail-centric sales strategy. More manufacturers, suppliers and wholesalers are starting to sell direct to consumers (D2C).  Motivations vary: brand awareness, customer loyalty, even product innovation. But for the most part, B2B sellers are simply looking to give consumers what they want — the ability to buy products directly from the source. Many are already doing it. A June 2015 PricewaterhouseCoopers survey found that 70% of U.S. consumers already [...]

Is e-fulfillment’s need for speed creating a drag on your business?

2018-07-17T16:14:24+00:00
