NAPCO, a provider of equipment, supplies and training to bath, tile and counter resurfacers, is hosting a March Madness contest for the second straight year. Winners receive credits towards future purchases. The folks at NAPCO enjoy engaging customers outside of normal business channels and this has proven to be a good vehicle.
Dani Nichols, Vice-President, said, “Last year we found many customers interested in the tournament. We decided to do a contest again as everyone seemed to enjoy it. We got a lot of positive feedback.” NAPCO has hosted several contests of the years including for the Academy Awards and Halloween.
The contest is of the bracket type where entrants select winners for each game including the final. Ties are settled by whoever gets closest to the total score of the final game. The contest is hosted at CBS Sports’ web site. Everything is done online including entering picks and calculating winners. According to Steve Coven, owner of NAPCO, “In the old days someone would spend a lot of time managing these pools. Now, with the internet, it’s all done automatically. It takes very little time at all.”
However according to a 2014 study done by global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, 50,000,000 Americans participate in NCAA pools. If they spend on average 1 hour of normal work time, the total cost to business would be $1,215,500,000. The report goes on to say it’s almost impossible to measure how much time is spent, but with games taking place during the workday, it has to be quite a bit.
Again, according to Coven, “Our customers are typically self-employed. That means if they are watching instead of working they don’t need to worry about their boss coming around the corner and catching them!”
