    2. Capital Improvements Panel – Both big and small changes around your wash plant can impact your processes, your finished product and your team. This panel discusses some of the changes made to their facilities including an overview of each project, the cost (both expected and unexpected), the highs, the lows and was it worth it!
    3. The Power of Your People – The people answering your phones are either instilling confidence or deterring your customers. How do you convert a lead to a sale? How do you turn a price inquiry into a scheduled pick-up? This talk will cover the importance of the people on your front lines and how they impact your bottom line.

EJ from Oriental Rug Cleaning of Indianapolis will help simplify this new age of marketing and offer tangible marketing with social media, short videos, text messaging and more to gain leads, stay relevant and in the customers mind.
