Pipedream University (PDU) wrapped up another successful instructional seminar at their main campus in Chatsworth, this time graduating National Video Supply in a fun-filled one-day event. National was the seventh US distributor to graduate from the educational program, which was designed to give Pipedream’s distribution partners the training and tools they need to effectively merchandise Pipedream’s award-winning 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,” said National Sales Manager Joe Walla. “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 later 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 award-winning Planogrammer software, followed by a festive graduation ceremony and dinner celebration in Pipedream’s traditional style of hospitality.
“We’re thrilled to have strengthened our relationship with National Video Supply,” said Brand Ambassador Cheryl Flangel. “We want to thank them for their vibrant energy and contagious enthusiasm that made this PDU such a success.”
