Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Multi Service, a transaction management company specializing in custom billing and payment programs, and MCH Strategic Data, a leading compiler of business-to-institution (B2i) databases and mailing lists, will host a free 60-minute webinar on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. The webinar will discuss optimizing business value in the B2i market. Mark O’Connell, president of Multi Service, and Peter Long, CEO of MCH Strategic Data will co-present the webinar.
Institutions – i.e. the .org, .gov and .edu segments – total more than 2 million in the United States. They include healthcare facilities, places of worship, educational organizations, government entities, and other non-profits. The intricacies of funding, budgeting and accounting practices among institutions, however, can leave suppliers in the red with what should be a profitable and growing market opportunity.
“This webinar will provide a whole new insight into the B2i market,” said, Mr. Long. “This often overlooked market makes up one-third of the U.S. gross domestic product. MCH Strategic Data will explain the complex B2i market and show ways on how to reach the real decision maker.”
Attendees will learn how to adapt their marketing efforts, the way they conduct business, and the manner in which they handle billing and payments to work with institutions and leverage those relationships for business growth.
Mark O’Connell, President of Multi Service commented, “Making a sale to a government agency or not-for-profit organization is only half the battle. We’ve seen companies that averaged 75-day A/R cycles on transactions with the government against a 30-day industry standard. The business costs tied to that 45-day difference – opportunity costs, collections and other administrative expenses – can be avoided when you understand the complexities of institutional procurement and accounting policies.”
