Benco Dental is the largest independent, family-owned dental distributor in the US. With over 420 external sales reps and 290 service technicians serving more than 30,000 customers across the country, staying connected and getting quick answers while selling over 200,000 products every day was a growing problem.
In 2010, Benco decided going social would more effectively keep employees up-to-date on products and changes, deliver real-time answers, and maintain the company’s tight-knit, family culture. With no existing social infrastructure, Benco conducted exhaustive research and was so impressed with NewsGator Social Sites’ ability to meet both current and future needs they jumped in with both feet – adopting Microsoft SharePoint and SQL Server and starting their social journey.
During this webinar, Keith Budurka, Benco Dental’s IT Director of Infrastructure, walks through the company’s vision of being more agile, more open, and ultimately more productive and successful.
This webinar focuses on:
