Cash for Appliances - A Quick Primer
2010.02.17 10:58:49
Given the recent publicity from different channels regarding the "Cash for Appliances" programs, there is a definite possibility of confusion regarding what actually constitutes the program and what appliances are eligible.

Unlike the prior automotive Cash for Clunkers, this program is administered by the individual states resulting in a wide variance of dates, criteria, model eligibility, and procedures depending upon where your customer lives. Being properly informed on the particulars of your state's program will help you better take care of your customers' needs - before and after the sale. There is also a good resource database
here.

Each state received funding in proportion to its population. Some states such as Kansas and Delaware ran out of money much sooner than expected. If possible, stay up to date on how much money is left in your state's program and keep your sales staff informed (New York still had nearly $11 million left in its program as of 2/16). 

Additionally, make sure to show your customers how to file for their rebate (and any deadlines) as well as providing any forms for haul away and recycling of the old unit. A few minutes of review with your delivery teams on these important topics can avoid any customer misunderstandings.

Finally, check for any additional energy or recycling programs available that can be added to the federal rebate (New Jersey and California are examples of this). There is a potential for increased sales by utilizing the availability of these programs.

Here are some highlights from a few states:

California - Program begins April 22, 2010 with $35.2 million allocated. Appliances included are washers, refrigerators, and room air conditioners. The rebates will be in addition to existing California energy initiatives.

New York - Program started Feb. 12th and is currently slated to end on Feb. 21st with applications having to be postmarked by March 15th. Appliances included are refrigerators, washers, and freezers with a extra rebate for providing proof of recycling the old unit. There is also an option for an appliance bundle purchase that has a $500 base rebate plus an extra $55 for recycling.
Click here for more info.

New Jersey - Program will be part of NJ's existing Clean Energy Program which already offers rebates on selected Energy Star products. The national program will not start until April (probably around Earth Day), and details have not been posted yet.

With the amount of local publicity accompanying each new roll out, there will be expected spikes in business. However, the better informed your sales and delivery staffs are, the better positioned you will be to take advantage and generate additional immediate sales as well as future repeat customers.

100% Inventory!
2009.11.12 23:58:39

We just finished the yearly physical inventory for a major client, and we are pleased to report that we achieved 100% inventory accuracy.  This means zero shrink and zero surpluses.  We are very proud of this result and achieved it through a combination of systems management, rigor during product picking and return, and a constant attention to the various details in working with the inventory.  We have a common belief that we must follow best practices 100% every time because it is that one time in a hundred that you deviate from a procedure that will come back to haunt you.

Thanks again to everyone involved with obtaining this tremendous result, and let's continue it into the next year.  If you are having issues with your current inventory, contact us or call 1-800-449-4723 ext. 3009 to see how we can help with your warehousing and delivery solutions.

Positive Signs
2009.07.28 07:11:39

While the economic news still remains a mixed bag, we have been seeing some surprisingly positive indicators from our clients.  While the year started slowly, numbers from the past three months have been equivalent or greater in year to year comparisons.  Although there is debate about the factors behind these numbers, the bottom line is that the numbers are there.

With this good news, we have to be prepared to meet the two fold challenges of maintaining service levels for all of our customers...
