CHATSWORTH, Calif. — National Video Supply is the seventh U.S. distributor to graduate from the PDU educational program, which was designed to give Pipedream's distribution partners the training and tools to effectively merchandise Pipedream's brands.
"PDU was the best display and learning experience my crew has ever had. I learned as well, even with my 30 years of experience," National Sales Manager Joe Walla said. "So many valuable tips I saw plain as day that no other novelty company has shown us before. It was nice to be taught how to make money and not just the usual, 'Take my product.'"
National Operations Manager Lee Negri added, "PDU is innovative, informative, and full of great sales tools - everything needed to increase revenue. It's been a little over a week and we have already seen increases."
The National team was given an inside look at Pipedream's shipping, receiving, manufacturing and day-to-day operations. The staff also received hands-on product training and a first look at Pipedream's Planogrammer software, followed by a festive graduation ceremony and dinner celebration.
"We're thrilled to have strengthened our relationship with National Video Supply," Brand Ambassador Cheryl Flangel said. "We want to thank them for their vibrant energy and contagious enthusiasm that made this PDU such a success."
