ABYC and ABBRA Will Co-host Webinar to Address Inventory and Profits for Maritime Companies and Individuals. The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) and the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA) will co-host their second webinar, Optimizing  Inventory, as part of an educational series that helps any maritime company, boat builder, manufacturer, marina or yard facility, and the service technician manage their inventory while improving profitability. The webinar will be led by Stephen Bullard, Senior Sales Director, PierVantage Marine Management Solution.  Bullard has more than 20 years in the marine service management, has logged more than 15,000 miles sailing the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and is a 100 ton master captain.

This webinar will be held July 25, 1-2PM EST. Two more webinars are scheduled to be hosted by ABYC and ABBRA later this year that will also speak directly to those interested in the recreational marine industry, and marine service and repair companies.

“More than ever the new economy dictates that inventory management is one of the keys to successful cash flow management,” says Ed Sherman, ABYC’s Director of Educational Programming.
