Buying Group Execs on 2010's Hottest Technologies
Here are some outtakes from our upcoming buying group roundtable in the March issue of Dealerscope:
Dealerscope: What new products and technologies have you taken on that will drive revenue and profits for your dealers?
Dave Workman, PRO Group: I’m most excited about TV’s evolutionary features. There will be a lot of energy around 3D, LED and IPTV. these will give a selling floor a lot to talk about. The growth of the Internet-connected set – the TV as the portal for downloadable content to own or rent – has very profitable implications for retailers. LED has a great “green” story and a sexy form factor. Also, there’s the fact that manufacturers may be moving price-points down on some of the larger panels – 60-inch and above. That will be critical for our type of retailer to drive sales and increase profits. Anything that will help consumer step up into a larger panel is going to be good for our class of trade.
