Just about everything these afternoons seems to be connected. Connected in the sense that there is someway that it can be controlled by the internet, but as a salesman for a local appliance store, it is important that I understand this current technology inside and out. I had the option to attend the annual technology trade show this year and I was blown away by the possibilities, then what truly got myself and others was how the diagnostics on these current appliances could be done. You don’t even have to have a worker come to the apartment for the most area to see what is wrong with your refrigerator, stove, washer, or even your Heating and A/C system. These units can be worked on, in many cases however remotely connected them to your Wi-Fi system. If there are physical repairs that need to be done, a worker can come to your home with the parts needed instead of checking it, ordering the parts, and then coming back to do the repairs. This is awesome because people are tied up and don’t constantly have the time for multiple appointments. I now go into sales calls with this in mind. I quickly assess our shoppers and determine if I should go high tech or traditional in our sales pitch. It is great to be able to offer exactly what they are looking for. Younger shoppers, in certain, want everything to be self-explanatory to operate and program. They don’t want to have the hassle of checking things on a daily basis or remembering when to call for service. A programmable appliance or Heating and A/C system is perfect for their lifestyles.
