I signed on this morning after a week of vacation. Summertime tends to be slow in my type of business as many of our members are vacationing as well. Like 900 million other people, I clicked on Facebook to see what happened over the last seven days. The first thing I noticed was the cursor blinking with the words, "What's on your mind?" Well, with a small team always busy with the next event, creating content, and maintaining expected service levels for our retail and merchandise supplier members, sometimes we too forget to ask, "What's on your mind?" If you're a member of RVCF and would like to explore the creation of new products, services or programs, please feel free to write or call to tell me exactly "What's on your mind." I assure you, your ideas will get our immediate attention and review. If your idea is reasonable, feasible, and would benefit the whole, RVCF will take a serious crack at implementing it.
With that thought now expressed, let me share another one with you. RVCF has two great programs coming up:
Root Causes for Retail Deductions Workshop, September 10-11, 2014, Teaneck, NJ – This day-and-a-half workshop identifies issues that cause deductions. We'll take a deep dive into the six core reasons errors occur in the retail order fulfillment workflow. For less than three hundred dollars, you can learn how to prevent tens of thousands of dollars in deductions that are otherwise "thrown away." It's not the cost of doing business – it's your poor business practices that cost you money! We can help you resolve that.
RVCF Annual Fall Conference, November 2-5, 2014, Scottsdale, AZ – The RVCF team works all year making this conference something special. This year, we're covering every aspect of omni-channel retailing, new retail requirements in EDI, RFID, and images and attribute. Plus, the will be close to 60 educational programs and 625+ one-on-one meetings between retailers and their merchandise suppliers. Our Fall Conference is one of the largest contingents in the United States of retailers meeting and collaborating with their tier-one suppliers!
We think these events are just part of the stepping stones we offer for making our members even better at what they do best. But, now it's your turn – share your thoughts with us because, together, we can achieve something even greater!
