A Lot of Support Goes a Long Way
One company that has led the charge in linking manufacturers, dealers, salespeople and manufacturers’ reps is Pioneer. The new Mobile Electronics Live, or MEL Web site, provides the Pioneer community with a forum to share information and solutions. It grew out of the company’s training Web site—you can still find a multitude of training videos.
“We wanted to have a portal where our dealers from around the world could interact and showcase their work,” said Chris Kehring, brand manager of Pioneer’s mobile entertainment division.
