At the Retail IT VAR Of The Future Conference, May 12 to 13 at Bally’s, Las Vegas, David Wible of Industry Weapon offered advice to retail IT VARs on how to stay competitive.

In this installment of BSMtv. Wible tells Business Solutions editor-in-chief Mike Monocello that a key to remaining competitive is keeping an open mind when it comes to new solutions and to maintain a healthy relationship with manufacturers who sell those solutions. You need to understand where the product is going, and whether it’s at the end of life or just entering the market. This will allow you to help merchants make plans for a year from now — or five years from now. “Merchants are looking to VARs to show them what’s going on,” Wible said.
