Marketing falls into the cracks, and it works out to five months or less time to make new contacts and build your practice. In this session you will learn how to:

break out of the deadline prison
make stronger relationships with key centers of influence
leverage the influence of your current clientele
create a more satisfying, profitable business.

DNC Warning: Don’t Let You Biz Be on the Hook for Bogus Credit Card Charges

Posted to Announcement by Ms. Janet Tirado of PrimePay, LLC at 5:17 PM

New EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) chip technology creates a unique transaction code that can’t be reused, but gives businesses a false sense of security. PrimePay offers advice to save businesses from chargebacks during the DNC:

Train Staff
It’s important that businesses allot training time for detecting credit card fraud. Here’s how:

Set a Limit
When employees ring up a transaction with a certain dollar amount, they could do a reciprocal action. For example: If someone spends $50 they should check ID. If someone spends $500 or more, employees contact the customers’ bank to cross-check the validity of the purchase.
Verify IDs (even with EMV chip technology)
Businesses must have employees check the ID of customers paying with credit cards. Without checking, anyone could insert a stolen card into the machine.
Payment Card Industry (PCI) Compliant
Maintaining PCI compliance helps keep customers’ payment information safe and decreases the effects of a data breach.

Becoming a Field Manager

Posted to Event by Mr. Michael Krebsbach of Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. Eastern Pa. Chapter at 3:40 PM

Purpose: To move field supervisors toward thinking and acting more like a manager. We call it "Taking Off the Tool Belt". As an average project contract amount is the same size as a small business' revenue, it is critical that a foreman or superintendent act more as if they have total profit and loss responsibility.

In our class, we will give to your field staff the right focus, processes and tools to improve project profitability and schedule adherence.

The aim of the course is to dispel the myths of good field management with the facts. Everyone has learned from someone else. Only through careful study and analysis have several construction industry trends and effective field techniques been uncovered. This course will meet your expectations of “real world” issues and answers.
