Glass industry professionals are signing up to take part in two
packed days of seminars, including a number of sessions intended
to help improve daily business practices.
For the technologically challenged, and anyone who just wants to
learn more, TEXpo is presenting a seminar on computer basics: "Is
Your Computer Your Enemy or Your Friend?" The seminar will teach
you how to assess technology decisions so that you can ask the right
questions, get the right answers and understand the applications
for your business.
"How to Increase Sales in a Challenging Economy" will have plenty
of tips for everyone. From the moment your customer interacts with
your CSR or phone system through the end result and they are with
their vehicle ready to sign off on payment, are you truly offering
the highest level of quality? If you can't answer for sure, come
and learn how an "undercover customer" might be a practice you need
in your business's future to ensure your clients receive the experiences
you intend for them.
Texans will find especially useful the seminar on Texas' new franchise
tax. Effective January 1, 2008, significant legislative revisions
were made to the Texas franchise tax. These updates impact the tax
base and rate. This seminar will provide information on exactly
what these revisions mean to glass businesses.
