Industry experts will work with sales leaders and managers to increase store sales volume and gross margins

PROFITsystems, a HighJump product and leading provider of solutions for home furnishings retailers, today announced it is launching a performance group focused on retail sales volume and margin growth called PROFITsystemsTopLine Sales Performance Group. Home furnishings retail sales leaders and managers in member organizations will come together twice a year to share best practices and collaborate on growth strategies under the guidance of industry experts and consultants David McMahon and Wayne McMahon.

“We are extremely excited about this new performance group,” said Paul Sherman, owner of Sherman’s and charter member of the PROFITsystems TopLine Sales Performance Group.  “It will allow our sales managers and leaders to work with peers from around the country to maximize our sales. Even small improvements in this area of a business can have exponential results, which we’ve seen firsthand through our participation in the PROFITsystems owner’s performance group. Transformative changes happen when you get outside your four walls and engage with like-minded people.”

Performance groups meet twice a year, usually at a different member location. Participants tour a member’s operations, propose best practices, discuss challenges and opportunities, compare key performance metrics, and set and report on goals that push their businesses forward. The inaugural PROFITsystems TopLine Sales Performance Group meeting will be hosted at Sherman’s in Peoria, Ill., from May 30-June 2.

“When you get 20 committed, smart, motivated people in the same room, magic is created,” said David McMahon, vice president of consulting and performance groups, PROFITsystems. “In directing these groups for many years with Wayne, we have seen some spectacular results,” “Our groups contain some of the most innovative people and profitable businesses that we have encountered in the industry. Together, we will ensure this new performance group is a huge success.”

Applications are being considered for the new performance group at this time. All home furnishings retailers are welcome to apply. Considerations for acceptance include business profile and goals. For more information, email David McMahon at david.mcmahon@highjump.com.
