Course Title:      Partnering to Win: Exploring Current Trends in Distribution Support

Credit Hours: 1

Instructor:         Dave Albert, Ferguson Enterprises

This course is designed for members/contributors of the MCA of NW Ohio and will be offered April 5, 2023, from 10:00am – 11:00 am at MCA of NW Ohio, 7550 Caple Blvd.  Northwood, OH  43619

Course description: This 60 minute live online course will be an exploration of the current trends in value-added services that are available NOW, from distributors in the Plumbing/Piping space. Construction timelines and stressors require a larger focus on Preconstruction planning, virtual design, reality capture, and system-to-system collaboration. Quality distributor partners can ease the burden by providing help in all these areas. This course will explain when you should partner with a distributor for these capabilities and what to expect during the process.

Learning objectives (bulleted):
• Many Commercial projects now require Virtual Design—why contractors should expect their distributors to have this capability & its benefits to the contractor.
• VDC Capabilities from a Supplier—what a supplier can do, and what a supplier cannot do. We will also explain what a professional package will include.
• VDC software compatibility, ecosystems, services provided.
• 3D Scanning, Reality Capture. We will discuss how using a 3D scan can make your company more attractive and more efficient.
• eProcurement –System to System and Digital Workflow. How a distributor partner can make your estimation and ordering software a more streamlined process. We will discuss some examples of processes that already exist to save you time.
• How to target specific projects that make sense for all these capabilities. What point in the project cycle should you be working with a distributor?

Virtual link will be provided prior to seminar.
