As you may have heard, Last month (in May) Gearsource teamed up with one of our larger vendors, PRG, to host a month long “Inventory sell-off”. The object was to help PRG to replace their typical twice-yearly auctions with something a little more managable, profitable, and of course, less stressful.This first ever Gear-Up event was everything planned, and more. While I will not get into numbers, I can say that the numbers were “significant” and in fact, well in excess of the prior auctions. In fact, I can’t tell you of any industry related auction that came even close.The beauty of this event is that it was basically “virtual” meaning that gear was not actually shuffled around the country to one location like an auction. Additionally, the manpower required by PRG was far less. In fact, they had 2 people full time, plus some help from different departments.Sure, we had some “glitches” and while those were minor in comparison to the overall success, we’re already putting systems in place to better handle those issues. Our new accounting software, and how it all speaks with our web applications is a HUGE upgrade. In addition, PRG are making a lot of changes to be able to support the sales with quicker information, shipping, support, etc.All in all, I’d say that we had a pretty darned amazing month, all things considered. Neither PRG nor GearSource had done this prior, so it was a little bit of pioneering. Yeah, as I said – some frustrations along the way – but we can’t wait to do it again.Standby for MORE Gear-Up sales events!
