This issue will take a break from Information Technology and Management Concepts and will promote a busy month for Trade Shows and Conferences directed at our specific industries of Print Finishing, Binderies, Diemakers and Diecutters.
Trade Shows are always a great way to get out and see what is new in equipment and technology as well as attend seminars and network with fellow industry members.
In May we have the IADD/FSEA Odyssey show in Nashville, TN from May 4th-6th. This is a trade show format with plenty of industry specific vendors demonstrating the latest products. Plus there are seminars and a Tech Shop portion of the show to see live demonstrations of equipment.
Dienamic will be participating at this event in booth 801 and would look forward to meeting members of the Print Finishing, Diemaking and Diecutting Industries to discuss any of the topics we have covered in our blog over the last couple of years or demonstrate any of our software products such as our Industry specific Estimating System, MIS/ERP System, On-line Customer Inquiry System or our Software Tools such as Die Mgmt and BHR programs or our new Foil Calc App.
If you would like more information on this event please contact Dienamic or the IADD or FSEA
BIA - Mid Management Conference
At the end of May the Binding Industries Association (BIA) will be hosting its Mid Management Conference in Orlando FL from May 23rd to 25th. The format of this event is a conference with different speakers covering a wide range of Industry Specific topics. The BIA also provides table top displays for vendors to display and provide information on new products and services available to the Bindery Industry in a much more casual atmosphere.
Dienamic will have a table top display and would be happy to discuss any of the topics covered in our blog or our industry specific software solutions. For more information contact Dienamic or BIA
Which ever show you attend Dienamic would be happy to demonstrate the importance of the concepts we have discussed such as
Estimating and Selling are different functions
Profit = Sales - Cost if you don't know your costs how do you know your profits
Accountability on the Shop Floor can result in Big Profits
Customer profiling leads to Company profits
Doing more with Less
Focus leads to Greater Profitability
Profitability begins with quote
80% of Revenue comes from 20% of customers - lock those good customers in
