When October rolls around, that means it’s the time of the season for our Annual Dealer Survey issue. I’m convinced that you will gain valuable insights from the findings of our 37th Annual Dealer Survey. This year, our findings reveal how the dealer channel is recovering after the impact of the biggest disruptor in the channel’s history. Are revenues starting to rise again, or are they still down? That’s the big question answered in Part 1 of our Survey. In addition, you’ll also learn how dealers’ MPS and managed IT revenues are doing, and some surprising findings about dedicated dealers.
