Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Fri, Nov 16, 2018 @ 06:45 AM

Cash, check or charge, there are only three ways to guarantee the payment of delivered building supplies to residential or commercial job sites. Simultaneously, there are only three main channels for delivering supplies: pay the dealer to do it, hire a third party delivery service, or do it yourself. The meshed processes entail having an adequate vehicle to transport the supplies, a safe way to load and unload them, enough manpower, and of course, the means to make and accept payments. Read More

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Fri, Oct 26, 2018 @ 07:45 AM

“Eighty percent of companies see a change in how their customers want to access and pay for goods and services, and 50 percent of these same companies are changing their pricing models as a result.” – The Economist

Life used to be simple, or maybe just simpler. People bought new cars every few years because car loans typically carried three-year terms. They traded in their old cars at dealerships.
