We are pleased to launch our October 2017 Dealer Survey Issue, the second of two 32nd Annual Dealer Survey issues, presented by EverBank. The October issue ties with both our September 2017 Dealer Survey Issue and our July/August Women Influencer's Issue as the largest issues published to date at 70 pages, but this one is likely one of the most broad in scope in terms of content.
As the cover story title ("Channeling a Spirited Sense of Optimism") suggests, our 2017 Annual Dealer Survey results reveal varied critical data, trends, strategies that point to an overall sense of optimism about the industry and individual dealer businesses.
Additionally, our September Issue also contains a variety of non-survey related features and other stories on topics, including Acquisitions ("Should I Stay or Should I Grow?: Acquisitions reshape independent dealer landscape and challenge established norms of the acquisitions game."), the Future ("That One Thing: Konica Minolta presses dealers to expand their revenue streams beyond core MFP business at FUTUREADY Dealer Meeting"), our latest CR LIVE: 2017 Dealer Tour installment ("Solid as Steel: Edwards Business Systems grows from a typewriter sales and services shop to one of the largest independent office technology companies in North America."), presented by Sharp, and much more.
To access the issue via auto-PDF download–or here to navigate through, and access all, stories from the issue online, as they are also posted as always directly on thecanatareport.com in "MAGAZINE FEATURES."
Please note as I have mentioned in our past few issue launch posts that moving forward, you must be a registered user and logged into thecannatareport.com to access current and back issues of The Cannata Report via PDF, as well as to access all magazine content posted directly to the site in "MAGAZINE FEATURES" and digital-only content posted to the site in "LIVE WIRE" and/or "VIDEO."
We hope you enjoy the issue and have a pleasant user experience with the updated site. However, please reach out to me at email@example.com directly with any questions, issues or comments as we will be continuing to make adjustments to the site as necessary according to your feedback along with regularly scheduled proactive enhancement updates moving forward.
