Strategy Development, a leading management consulting and advanced training firm, is conducting their SD Service Management University (SMU) on May 22-23, 2012 at the EverBank Commercial Finance office in Parsippany, NJ.

“EverBank has an outstanding reputation for going above and beyond in providing value and services to their customers,” stated Ken Staubitz, Service Consultant for Strategy Development. “I appreciate the opportunity to work with EverBank in helping its customers improve the profitability of their service organization.”

Strategy Development partners, BEI Services and KATUN, will be offering special credits to their respective customers for attending the May SMU. BEI Services clients will receive a $400 account credit while KATUN customers will receive $300 off future supply orders.

The SD Service Management University provides service leaders with concrete steps they can take to achieve sustainable margins over 52% and achieve 60%+ margins in managed print services. The intensive, two-day program, designed by Strategy Development consultants, will be taught by Staubitz. Participants will learn how to assess their department’s strengths and weaknesses, develop specific actionable plans to address areas of opportunity, execute action items to drive sustained profitability and quality customer service, instill ownership and accountability for desired results, properly manage parts, and successfully deliver profitable service in the MPS world.
