TLM Webinars on CD
webinars are available to help you better appreciate how the TLM System helps integration companies manage & improve productivity…
1) Key Numbers The “Key Metrics for Success” webinar covers many of the key numbers
an integration company needs to manage. The feedback from the webinar has been fantastic and I think it would be a great resource
for you, too. It’s a WMV recording so you’ll see every slide and hear the whole narrative, and includes the slide
handout so you can print out the presentation, too (handy for note-taking). Just $14.97 including S&H.
Order via PayPal.
2) Counting Mistakes A second webinar covers the “3 BIG Counting Mistakes” integrators
make - & how to fix them. This will help you understand some basic bookkeeping issues that confound the ability of many
integrators to see their numbers correctly. Also $14.97 including S&H. Order via PayPal.
