Buying and marketing groups have evolved and continue to work to add value to the channel. But they, like most organizations in this industry, face challenges in a market that is seeing slow sales, cost and margin pressures, and ongoing consolidation.
MDM interviewed the leaders and members of buying and marketing groups, surveyed MDM readers on the benefi ts and challenges associated with buying and marketing groups, and spoke with manufacturers about their view of the role these organizations play in today's markets.
This special report is the result of this research. The articles in this report were originally published Aug. 10 and Aug. 25, 2010, in MDM Premium.
