    The Truth About Distribution Data: Why Companies Struggle to Use It and How Companies are Succeeding   

     Alex Wakefield, CEO, Longbow Advantage

    Executives who understand the benefits of properly managing distribution data can unlock enormous potential in their operations. When data is effectively cleaned and managed, companies can view their operations in real-time, analyze, and improve processes daily. With significantly improved visibility, a company can provide better service to their customers and achieve these results at a much lower cost than current data management software.
