The Coming Commoditization of Distribution: Disruption and What You Can Do About It
Event Date: EST

Nearly everything you sell will soon be available quickly and easily from other companies, like marketplaces and manufacturers who ship direct to customers. This commoditization of the heart of a distributor’s value proposition — along with new industry entrants, a changing workforce and advancing technology – are going to drive consolidation in distribution. You’ll need leading technology capabilities and the ability to develop, price and sell services to thrive in the future.

These massive changes will bring not only threats but also opportunities. It takes a visionary and enlightened leader to succeed when industries go through a transformation. Are you up to the challenge?

In this talk, John Gunderson, VP Analytics & E-Business at MDM, will describe what’s going to happen and interview a key B2B distributor on the steps they are taking to avoid digital disruption.
