ACCA has announced three workshops:

  • Keys to Residential Profitability

All three will be held in Palm Beach, Florida and Tampa, Florida.

Keys to Residential Profitability will be offered at the Marriott Palm Beach Gardens on May 13 and 14 and again at the Marriott Westshore in Tampa on May 15 and 16. Attendees will get solid benchmarks necessary for profitable performance in the residential replacement and service markets and learn the key ratios for managing a residential business (and receive the tools for improving those ratios.)

Residential contractors will learn how to reduce employee turnover, design a customized system to get more leads, and understand the critical benchmarks of profitable performance in:

  • Replacement Equipment Sales
  • Service Sales; Maintenance Agreement Sales
  • Operational Efficiency
