Posted on October 15, 2019 in Around the Web ,Blog by

It takes about $100 of revenue to add $10 of profit, but it only takes $10 of cost savings to add $10 of profit. So, would you rather increase revenue, or reduce costs? Sales Executives generally think their role is to generate revenue, and they are mostly, but not entirely, correct. They can also make a serious contribution to cost containment if they pay attention to it. The problem is, sales rarely gives enough thought to what happens to a project once they hand it […]

Revenue vs. Growth

Posted on May 20, 2019 in Around the Web ,Industry Discussion by

We’re growing, but what does that really mean? We have heard so much over the past five or ten years about the concept of growth. Everybody talks about it, but does anybody really knows what it means? What does growth mean to you? That is the topic of this week’s video with Brad Malone and David McNutt. “Especially in the last three years, with the economy opening up, integrators are seeing double digit growth and they’re really proud of it,” says Malone. “But what they’re […]

In his NSCA Best Practices Conference session “Job Costing: An Execution Guide for Operations,” Solutions360 president and CEO Brad Dempsey taught attendees some of the ways to recognize and fix […]
