Story published at 14:56, Tuesday, August 12th, 2014
Crossover Technologies, a leading supplier of retail management solutions for the industry, helped PGA Professionals to enhance their businesses through a number of educational webinars.
This is the first time the company has staged this kind of event, which is designed to be short, but effective, allowing busy PGA Professionals to take minimal time out of their businesses to gain important education and motivation.
Led by Managing Director Phil Barnard, who encouraged questions and participation from his audience, the webinar was titled Search & Destroy: Why Now is the Perfect Time to Identify your Slow Moving Stock and Create Some Cash, and focussed on how retailers can use their Crossover systems and XPos software to identify dead stock, along with the best ways to clear it.
During the webinar attendees were shown a number of example screenshots from Crossover’s EPOS systems, highlighting the reports they should pay particular attention to and how they can utilise the information generated to clear dead stock, make sales and continue to run successful businesses.
Crossover received excellent feedback from those who took part, including David Delaney, PGA Professional at Halifax Bradley Hall Golf Club. He said: “The webinar was excellent and showed me a number of ways that I could use my EPOS system to not only save me money, but make me money too.
“It was extremely well put together, very clear and concise. I took pages of notes and will be implementing many of the procedures Phil outlined.”
Phil Barnard added: “Having received great feedback from all those who took part in the webinars we plan to make this a regular occurrence, as well as increasing the maximum amount of attendees to 100 per webinar.
“There are a number of subjects we have been asked to cover, including How to get my staff using the system better, How to improve my product data, Planning for next season and Reporting for the Golf Show and stock rooms.
“We will now start planning for more webinars which, rest assured, will cover a number of these requested topics.”
Crossover Technologies already has the next webinar scheduled, with two being held on consecutive Wednesdays, September 17 and 24, starting at 3pm and 11am respectively.
The title of the webinar will be Pre-Show Primer: Get Ready for your Best Buying Show Yet. The session will focus on how retailers can utilise their Crossover XPos systems to create the perfect buying plan ahead of The Golf Show at the Harrogate International Centre from October 7-9.
“If retailers are unable to take part in our next webinars, we will be exhibiting at The Golf Show and look forward to speaking to many of our existing customers and welcoming new ones,” said Phil.
