Skyline Exhibits Launches Endorsed Skyline Provider (ESP) Program
ST. PAUL (July, 2013) -- Skyline Exhibits is pleased to announce the creation of the Endorsed Skyline Provider (ESP) program. The ESP program was created to make it easy for Skyline Dealers to work with a pre-qualified, select network of vendors who offer top-of-the-line products and services to companies and organizations around the world. In addition, the ESP program eliminates time-consuming searches and reduces risk for Dealers when sourcing products and services for their clients.
Each ESP company was recommended by a Skyline Dealer or employee based on positive past experiences with the company and its staff. In addition, each ESP company is required to offer preferred pricing, a consistently high level of quality and availability of products and North American distribution capabilities.
According to Jon Althoff, Senior Director Global Marketing, "The purpose of the program is to enable new efficiencies for both Skyline Dealers and their suppliers, bringing new value to the brands of our clients and the relationships we are building with each other."
