Time again for a “Reality Check” Over the years we have written numerous articles dealing with reality within the equipment industry. At the start of a new year we decided to “dust-off” an article we wrote several years ago with the quote - “Things that do not change will remain the same!” Reality as described by Webster is: “The quality or state of being actual or true” ... Webster Reality: Strong equipment sales will eventually return. Whether it will be in six months, 12 months, 18 months or in two or three years is anybody’s guess. As I have written on numerous occasions, I am a complete optimist, with the possible exception of the farm equipment industry. That equipment industry alone has had five exceptional sales years. If you check back 50 years, the industry cycles pretty close to every five years. Reality: Some dealers will survive, others will not. Reality: Manufacturers will continue to seek new ways to increase their market share and their dealers’ market share. Reality: Equipment dealers should concern themselves with profitability. Reality: When equipment dealers fail to provide a service in the chain of distribution, they will either be replaced, dropped by the manufacturer or we will witness a dealer-less society. Reality: Change is inevitable! Be optimistic, do what you have to do to survive! Reality: Big is not always better for everyone! Dealers need to ask themselves how big their operation should be and how many branches they can afford and need to cover their territory. Reality: Growth by acquisition is not always profitable growth. It is not always easy to grow sales by buying someone’s business. Look to survival by profitably covering a territory and getting all the business possible out of your current territory. There are several realities for the equipment dealer that we would like to point out. 1) Manufacturers need the equipment dealer to make equipment ready to sell. 2) Manufacturers need the equipment dealer to provide warranty and to make necessary changes and modifications in the equipment following the sale. 3) Manufacturers also need the dealer to provide service on an ongoing basis after the sale. This is, and always has been, a key factor in the customer’s decision to purchase from one dealer versus another. Reality: In the long run equipment manufacturers cannot survive in the market without a financially strong dealer organization! Equipment is not only becoming more expensive to purchase it is also becoming more complicated to service. Simple repairs are no longer the norm and technicians today need far more education and training than required in the past. Reality: Hiring, training, compensating technicians and maintaining a competent staff of service technicians must become a top priority for equipment dealers in the next five to ten years. While equipment prices are increasing dramatically, dealer margins on that same equipment are stagnant. Successful dealers have recognized this problem and have begun to focus upon those areas of their dealership that too many dealers have neglected. Reality is that high profit opportunities exist within the dealer’s aftermarket! Successful equipment dealers also realize that their greatest margin opportunities lay within their shop (60% to 65% gross profit) and that they have a service that, if truly marketed, can provide the dealership some tremendously profitable opportunities. Reality: Dealers must recognize that all their customers have a choice as to where they can buy their parts and service. Customers in a “free market” can go wherever they want Continued on page 22

Time to depreciate your wallet I just returned from the Associated Equipment Distributors (AED) meeting in beautiful downtown Houston. Great place, great weather and great show. The members are more upbeat this year expecting improvement in sales and rentals as well as margin improvement. It may not be doubledigit growth, but growth it will be. OEM’s as well as dealers keep getting more creative about how they deliver more value in exchange for a customers’ money. More training, extended warranty and even some maintenance similar to what you see on the auto commercials. These “extras” pertain to all units being sold whether they go to a customer or a dealer’s rental fleet. I keep reading how rental should be the preferred method of utilizing equipment. OEM’s and dealers both review and analyze the cost to own and operate equipment and then compare those results against customers costs and only in unique situations is it cheaper to own. Doing a detailed analysis helps customers recognize what they have not been including in their costs, which in most cases tips the analysis in favor of renting. A big part of the cost to own and operate includes both interest expense on the note or lease and the tax depreciation allowed, both of which reduce taxable income and help fund the purchase of the unit. This was especially true using Bonus Depreciation when you purchase new equipment, and the Section 179 allowance for both the purchase of both new and used equipment. Currently interest expense is quite manageable and really not part of the cost/benefit equation. Depreciation expense and Sec 179 allowances,
on the other hand, are both significant if you have taxable income you can reduce using either the 179 allowance or the depreciation. But what if depreciation deductions materially decrease and the Sec 179 virtually disappears, would that significantly have an impact on a buying decision? You bet it does. As you have probably been hearing Congress would like to update the tax code and reduce corporate tax rates to 23%. Consequently, the Senate Finance Committee rolled out the changes they would like to see, and for equipment dealers there is not much to cheer about. And if you own a flow-through entity it is twice as bad because although they will reduce the corporate rate to 23% they did nothing to have flow-through corporate rates reduced to a similar percentage. The thought process was to eliminate a number of “special” tax deductions to pay for the rate reduction, but as of now all they did was eliminate deductions and add to the taxable income of those of you in the 39% bracket. Assets will now be placed in a pool with an annual depreciation percentage applied to the balance in the pool account at year-end. Your type of equipment falls into Pool 2 or the 18% depreciation rate pool. For example, if you add $1000 to your fixed asset pool and that is the only asset in the pool you will depreciate the asset down by $180 at the end of year one. If nothing else changes the $1000 asset is worth $820 at the beginning of year two and also at the end of year two where it is Continued on page 24

Hiring: The broken process The accelerated speed of communication and our ability to access information with just a few keystrokes is changing everything—including the way we buy and sell. In the meantime, our economy has become borderless as the reach of global companies has altered the competitive landscape. The game is changing. And with that comes a change when it comes to hiring top salespeople. To remain competitive, leaders need to be fluent operating virtually, in the online world, have a clear understanding of how the buying habits of customers are changing, and realize that how they succeeded in the past may have very little to do with how they will succeed tomorrow. Gerhard Gschwandtner, Publisher of Selling Power shared with us: “The Internet has created tools that help customers educate themselves. This is part of the self-service movement that started in the 70s when gas stations offered you a choice: Do you want somebody to fill your tank, or would you like to save a few pennies per gallon and do it yourself? And the self-service movement is being perfected by businesses selling to consumers, such as Amazon.com, where you can buy virtually anything at your convenience, whenever you want, without talking to a salesperson. So the customer is more in charge of the buying process.” “Added to this,” Gerhard said, “is that there is intelligence at work providing customers with information from other customers, so customers are less influenced by salespeople and more influenced by the persuasive comments from other people who have purchased the same product or service.”
As a result, those who succeed today need to be bright, empathic, versatile, curious, flexible and able to connect with clients, in person and virtually, in all parts of the world. And that's just for starters. The most effective salespeople today are using new technologies to engage in online conversations with prospects, keep up on what their competitors are doing, arrange appointments and create client demos on the fly,—all in real time. The future belongs to salespeople who can thoroughly understand, embrace and take advantage of this new technology to enhance their relationships with their customers. Selling, as always, is about understanding the way your customers want to buy. What is most important now is that those ways are changing. Somewhere between Google, Bing, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and corporate websites, salespeople can find all they need to start meaningful conversations with their prospects, including what other companies they have worked for, what schools they attended, what connections they might share, where they live, how they communicate, how they treat their customers, how they position themselves and their company, what others say about them, what their philosophy is, how their company is growing and what the latest news items are on their firm. And these threads can all be tied together with the ease of a few clicks. For a salesperson to succeed, he or she does not have to be incredible. But he or she absolutely has to be credible.

One of the emerging new rules for sales: the value-added sales call "My customers seem to have less time available for me than before. They are harder to see, and when I do get in front of them, they often seem rushed or preoccupied. What can I do about this?” Sound familiar? It's a question that I am hearing more and more often. I'm sure you have run it through your mind a few times. It may be that the problem is you. You may be irritating and abrasive, and over time your customers may have decided that they don't want you around. But it's probably not you. It's your customer. No matter what you sell, it is likely that your customer has more to do and less time in which to do it than ever before. Your customer's lack of time is a relatively recent phenomenon. It wasn't much of an issue a few years ago, but it has become universal and growing in intensity day by day. Your customer is overworked and pressed for time. As a result, there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Some things have to go. A long, leisurely conversation with a sales person is often one of those things that is going. I believe we are at the beginning of a new trend – a trend with awesome implications for sales people. It used to be that being viewed as a "value-added” vendor was a desirable position to occupy in the customer's mind. That meant that the product or service you represented brought your customer more value for the money than the offerings of your competitors. It was why they did business with you.
Notice the focus was on the product or service you represented. The process involved - the sales calls you made on the customer, and the discussions you had with him or her – were viewed as a means to an end. It was what both of you did in order to come to the exchange of money for your value-added offerings. Those were the rules, and customers and sales people understood them. But the rules are changing. We are at the beginning of a new paradigm for the field sales person. The new paradigm is this: Today, not only must the product or service bring value to the customer, but the time you spend with the customer must also be of value to him or her. In other words, the sales process itself must bring value to your customer. Your customer must gain something from every sales call. He/ she must see a reason for spending time with you – a payback for his investment of time. In today's time-compressed and overwhelming world, your sales call must bring the customer some value. Here's a way to visualize this emerging new rule. Suppose you were to make a routine sales call on a regular customer. At the end of the call you filled out an invoice, handed it to him and said, "OK, John, that will be $150.00 for my time.” In other words, you charge him for the value he received by talking with you. Would he pay your bill? Would he have derived enough value from the time he spent with you so that he would gladly pay you for it? Continued on page 34

ARC establishes 2014 federal work plan The executive board of the Alliance for Rail Competition (ARC) met in Washington, D.C. to establish its federal work plan for 2014. The organization expressed its appreciation of House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster’s announcement regarding his committee’s intention to move a comprehensive transportation reauthorization bill through the House Transportation Committee before August. ARC is a diverse group of shippers and industry trade associations that formally organized in March of 1997 in response to growing concerns over deteriorating rail service. Members of ARC are captive shippers that do not have access to the benefits of the Staggers Rail Act of 1980. They include a broad cross-section of industry segments, including: agriculture; coal consumers; consumer and industrial products; chemicals; minerals and petrochemicals. Continued on page 36

Industry personnel and organization news
Emerson closes purchase of EGS Electrical and renames to Appleton Group Emerson announced that it has closed the transaction acquiring SPX Corporation's 44.5 percent minority interest in EGS Electrical Group, giving it 100 percent ownership of the business. Emerson and SPX have jointly held the business since 1997, with Emerson responsible for operational management and control. Results for the business, which had annual revenues in 2013 of more than $500 million, have been consolidated in Emerson's Industrial Automation segment. As announced in December, the transaction allows Emerson to focus on emerging growth opportunities in the oil, gas and chemical industries through its strong Process Management and international channels. Market repositioning actions to pursue these opportunities are already underway, including renaming the business unit to Appleton Group, reflecting its most recognized brand. The transaction is expected to be slightly accretive to earnings per share in 2014. "We will continue to focus on innovation and service, expand new product introductions and find ways to grow in our key markets," said Russ Kerstetter, new president of Appleton Group. "We are very excited about the future of the new Appleton Group." • www.Emerson.com

Human Element | Continued from page 12 Do I trust you? Do I think that you know what you're talking about? Do you convey expertise? Do I believe you? Do I feel that you will come through? And follow through? We know, through our more than a half century of assessing potential and talent, that top-performing salespeople all possess three qualities. They need to be able to connect with people, to read them, to understand where they are coming from. They need to be driven to persuade others, to bring them around to their point of view. And they need to view rejection as just something that happens, another learning experience, another bump in the road, something to overcome. Then they need to be able to carry on, even more determined than ever—to connect and persuade another prospect or client. Our cross-industry studies demonstrate that fewer than half the people currently making a living in sales possess those three essential qualities. And that brings us back, with a renewed sense of urgency, to the premise for the article that Herb wrote in the Harvard Business Review nearly a half-century ago. Why are some salespeople so incredible, whereas others are obviously in the wrong job? What do the best salespeople have that others do not? And it’s not just experience. Let’s take an example. You’re looking to make a hire. So, you advertise “ten years of experience required.” I cannot tell you how often we’ve asked groups “Why 10 years? Why not eight or 12 years?” There is never a solid answer. Making 10 years of experience the magic number is arbitrary. So we ask “How many of you have hired the individual with 10 years of experience only to find that he or she is repeating a year of bad experience ten times? You learn that you’ve made a mistake, but it’s too late. You and your company have paid the price of a bad hire. Why? You might assume that it is always important for an individual to have experience in the job
for which he or she is being selected. Unless you are talking about your surgeon, the answer is not what you might expect. Regardless of the experience a resume indicates, chances are more likely that you will hire someone who is not ideally and inherently suited for the job you want to fill. Surveys of employee satisfaction reveal the grim statistics: most people are not impassioned about what they are doing on the job. In other words, they don’t love what they do, which means essentially, they’re not motivated. Why? Because the role they are in doesn’t allow them to play to their strengths. Hiring the wrong person for the role adds to the ranks of what we at Caliper call the “misemployed.” Unless you have identified the core strengths of the person you are looking to hire and have matched those traits to those required by the job you want to fill, you are, at best, making a calculated guess. If you follow your hunch and proceed with the hire, you may then want to offer some training. This is the second area where the hiring process is broken and can go wrong. Perhaps you want to offer a training program for everyone in a particular sales position. The risk in funneling your new sales hires into such training is that you may be trying to train the untrainable. In today’s economy, we can end up hiring people who are taking a job simply to have a job. The inherent ability and motivation that can make the difference between a lackluster employee and a great one simply isn’t there. Good training is necessary to provide individuals with the tools they need to accomplish their job, but all the training in the world can’t motivate an individual to do that job. Once an individual has been hired and trained, next comes the on-boarding process. Here again, even if selection and training have been adequate, huge mistakes are often made. Continued on page 32

Aftermarket | Continued from page 8 to purchase their needs and requirements. Reality: Dealers must market their aftermarket with the same dedication they put forth in marketing complete goods! Several years ago we were working with an equipment dealer whose service gross profit exceeded the industry guidelines. He had an excellent billing efficiency and a high technician’s productivity. His service contribution to total sales was a shade over 23%. Reality: He will be a survivor! Despite his overall success in service, he knew he required more technicians, but was having difficulty acquiring these technicians. He was receptive to anything that would provide his dealership another four or five technicians. Reality: Technicians are difficult to find. Even in what some call a “downturn” economy. There is certainly no surplus of qualified technicians and those who are qualified are monetarily satisfied and unwilling to make a change. Those who are currently available are many times unqualified. See our articles: Hire-A-Vet! April 2012, Material Handling Wholesaler. Reality: If we are going to hire, train, compensate and maintain a core of qualified, hardworking, performance orientated technicians, with a strong work ethic, the equipment dealers and service managers are going to have to remove their blinders and begin to think outside the box. Think about this: For years equipment dealers have paid sales personnel “big bucks”, plus incentives, car or car allowances for selling equipment that returns an average gross profit of 5% to 8%. Perhaps the same dealer pays a typical technician $20.00 to $25.00 an hour, when that same technician produces a gross profit of 60% to 65%! Reality: The dealer’s service department is not only a profit center, it is an opportunity center. Too many dealers seem to believe that many technicians are unreasonable in their pay requests. Equipment dealers
had better recognize the fact that technicians’ wages are going to increase dramatically in the coming years. It is a typical “supply vs. demand” scenario. Check out technicians hourly wages in ND, SD, Western Texas and Eastern Pennsylvania, that will shock you back to reality! How would you as an equipment dealer or as a service manager answer this question? What if you seriously needed a “top-notch” technician, a technician qualified to work on the type of equipment your dealership sells and one that could handle any job you gave the technician to accomplish? What if an applicant came along who fit every single requirement you were looking for? What if a check of this applicant’s references indicated the technician was even better and more qualified than he/she said they were? What if the technician truly wanted to come to work at your dealership? What if the applicant stated that a salary requirement of $35.00 an hour would be necessary to make a change in employment? Could or would you hire this applicant? In answer to this question we too often hear “no.” It is no because: 1) “No one in our shop is paid that amount of money and, 2) If we did hire that applicant, everyone would expect a similar increase in hourly wages.” Reality: Equipment dealers are being held hostage by some of their employees. Reality: Most of you will see technicians’ wages approaching this level in two to three years! Some of you are already experiencing this level of hourly wage rates. Therefore, equipment dealers and service managers are going to be hard pressed to focus upon solutions to solve this particular problem. What if an incentive pay plan based upon performance was developed for your shop? A program based upon profitable performance would allow your service department to compensate at a level of $30.00 or $40.00 an hour for the services of your qualified technicians. What if Continued on page 38

Bottom Line | Continued from page 10 depreciated another 18% (850 X 18% = 153) which now reduces the tax basis to $697 at the end of year two ... and so on. Do you get what is going on? Using this pooling method means you will never fully depreciate the asset for tax purposes until you sell it and offset the sales proceeds against whatever balance remains in the pool at that time. Canada uses this pooling method and one of their equipment associations recently inquired if we could help them put together a paper supporting five-year straight-line deprecation. The example I used accounted for one unit in the pool. If you now assume you add and subtract units to the pool every year and then calculate the 18% deprecation figure you can estimate what it will cost you if this program is proposed and passed. Look at it this way... Pool bal at year-end= Prior year pool bal + adds- sales- depreciation. As long as the pool balance has a positive balance there is no gain to pay tax on as a result of selling a unit. And if that is true you received the benefit of a like-kind exchange transaction without going through the LKE process. Only when the pool value turns negative do you pay tax on the negative amount and then add it back to make the pool value zero again. The one good thing of this proposal is Sec 179 allowance is $1,000,000 but with a limit of $2,000,000; meaning if you buy $1,000,000 in total

But if you buy $3,000,000 of equipment you get a zero 179 allowance because the difference over $2,000,000 offsets the $1,000,000 dollar for dollar over $2,000,000. In short, this 179 benefit is designed for small business. To summarize, you can purchase up to $2,000,000 of equipment without losing any of the Section 179 available. If this proposal passes, your business will require more balance sheet management to avoid unexpected tax bills. And don’t forget we are talking about your tax books and not your accounting books. One last word of caution …do not forget about the units depreciated using Bonus which have little or no tax basis left. Sell a bunch of those and your pool may turn negative. This Senate Finance Committee discussion is only draft at this time but gives you some idea what they are thinking about. If you don’t like it, now is the time to raise your objections along with suggested changes to make the corporate rate and personal rate for flow-through corps the same.

“Save”ty Yellow Products stays ahead of the safety curve
Like a true business perfectionist, the only grade that satisfies Dan Gentile is an 'A.' No consumer report score lower than a nine or 10 rating will do for “Save”ty Yellow Products' founder owner and president. If the rating isn't a nine or 10 in each category, Gentile requests the customer call him personally. He gets on average two to three calls per year out of thousands of orders. Gentile considers the grades customers place on their “Save”ty order and delivery his West Chicago-based forklift safety equipment company's credit score. And Gentile has zero interest in having his company being regarded as a 'B' or 'C' grade operation. Ten years after its founding, Gentile's pride and joy is making top grades with his customers and serving as a safeguard for numerous companies, their employees and clients. Safety is, well, “Save”ty Yellow Products' first name. The company's broad product output includes guardrails, handrails, driveway gates, overhead door track protection, end of aisle and rack protection, work and maintenance platforms, protective barriers including floor mounted machine guards and steel bollards, and exterior dock lights and barricades. Ahead of the safety curve in a cutting edge industry, Gentile is always looking to develop the safety products of tomorrow today. Sometimes his customers double as his research department. The objective of the work here is simple: Prevent injury, damage, lost work time and lost money. “Save”ty Yellow Products' name comes with its own insurance policy. New inventory such as Collision Awareness
Look Outs, which feature motion sensors and warnings for operators and pedestrians, are keeping warehouses with heavy forklift traffic safe and alert. “Save”ty Yellow Products building column protectors and mezzanine safety gates protect inventory. SYP rails (which are available in sizes up to 10 feet) are so strong their lite duty rails are rated at 5,000 pounds, standard duty rate at 10,000 pounds and heavy duty SYP rails rate at 12,000 pounds at 5 mph. As Gentile puts it, he wants “Save”ty to be a feel-good company. “Save"ty's reach extends throughout the Greater Chicagoland area and beyond. Its Rockford, IL., factory produces and ships nationwide and to Canada. In the Windy City and suburbs, “Save”ty Yellow Products installs its own products. In the forklift industry, “Save”ty is fast-tracking up the charts as one of the country's fastest growing companies with double digit percentage sales growth in both 2012 and 2013. After outgrowing its own manufacturing facility, the company built a 10,000 square foot West Chicago distribution center in 2012. With over 25 employees, “Save”ty has made the transition from startup to proven industry player in just a decade. And most importantly, “Save”ty Yellow Products is making the forklift industry safer for its people and customers.

Connect. Compete. Grow. 2014 Georgia Logistics Summit
Each day, planet Earth experiences a net gain of 200,000 people or 140 every single minute. That equates to 70 million more people every year, about the same as the combined populations of California, Texas and Washington. From day one, each person added is a “consumer,” relying on the delivery of products to their doorsteps and store shelves in order to prosper. The products consumed will vary based on geography and culture, as will the technical details to physically get the products delivered … but the importance of logistics is universal. And, as populations and demographics change so too are the rapid advances in technology to create a global marketplace. Companies were once able to compete as solely an “importer” or “exporter” but now see those lines blurring and competitiveness tied to leveraging both imports and exports, coupled with domestic last-mile distribution in order to satisfy the rapidly increasing demand for products all over the world. This growing global economy is making supply-chains more complex and integrated. This trend is further evidenced by the fact that both U.S. exports and imports of goods and services reached the highest on record in 2012 at nearly $2.2 trillion and $2.75 billion respectively. Recent data shows the export trend continuing in 2013 with exports up 2.6% over 2012 and imports remaining steady. Thus a focus on export, import and domestic logistics at the 2014 Georgia Logistics Summit is very timely for while volumes are up so are total logistics costs (although still well below 2007). On March 18th and 19th in Atlanta, the 2014 Georgia Logistics Summit will deliver a unique two-day program with multiple speakers from leading private industry shippers and logistics experts. Companies like Target, Walmart, Merck, Starbucks, Baxter, AGCO, Boeing and many others will discuss with attendees how they are managing trends in the global economy where the only constant is change. In addition to focused breakout sessions on imports, exports, and domestic logistics, the Summit includes keynote speakers from Wal-Mart and panel discussions on the “Logistics of Manufacturing” and “International Trade: Partnerships and Possibilities.” In its 6th year, the Summit has widely established itself as a powerful networking event designed with ample opportunities to establish connections with the other attendees. The Summit draws together an unmatched depth and breadth of attendees from every aspect of
the ‘logistics ecosystem.’ The summit allows attendees to meet and mingle with executives in all modes of transportation and every aspect of supply chain who can provide deep expertise and insight about each sector. Make plans to join over 2,000 industry peers and customers from 30 states and nine countries in Atlanta on March 18 & 19 at the 2014 Georgia Logistics Summit. These are exciting and challenging times in logistics, making opportunities to meet and hear from professionals in the industry even more important for you to connect, compete and grow your business. You don’t want to miss it! Learn more and register online: www.georgialogistics.com/logistics-summit
Co-located trade shows Co-located with the 2014 Georgia Logistics Summit will be two incredible supply-chain trade shows in MODEX 2014 organized by the Material Handling Institute (MHI) and the first-ever Supply Chain & Transportation USA Exhibition & Conference (SCT) hosted by Reed Exhibitions. These shows take place right downstairs from the Georgia Logistics Summit and run four days (March 17-20) providing access to 800 supply-chain related exhibitors and multiple on-floor educational seminars. So maximize your conference experience and make plans now to attend March 18 & 19 for the Georgia Logistics Summit AND take in the trade shows at the same time. Paid registrants of the Georgia Logistics Summit receive a badge that will also provide immediate access to the MODEX and SCT show floor. However, registration for MODEX and SCT only does not include access to the Georgia Logistics Summit. Take advantage of the tremendous opportunity to connect, learn new ways to improve your business and grow!

Human Element | Continued from page 21 First, rarely is the supervising manager aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the team who reports to him or her. And likewise, the individual just hired rarely is made aware of the manager’s needs. While companies give new employees a job description, rarely is their job description directly related to their boss’s responsibilities. Caliper has been brought in to rectify situations where although selection and training appear to be effective and connected, the new employees are assigned to the wrong manager, or the manager and employee are not given sufficient information to ensure their joint success. We should go one step further here. In some cases, the company does not clearly enough communicate what is required of a new employee. To compound this ambiguity, managers do not know the strengths and weaknesses of new employees, which means the manager is ill prepared to manage new employees as effectively and efficiently as possible. The broken pieces of the hiring process result from inaccurate assumptions. We assume that if job candidates have 10 years of experience, they must know what they’re doing and are likely to succeed in the job to be filled. We also assume that off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all training will be effective for employees. And third, we assume that we can hand the new hire over to a manager who knows little or nothing about the new employee. Most managers go with what they know – they manage as they have been doing year after year, regardless of who they are managing. Such an uninformed approach to management can lead to frustration for both manager and employee. Whether you look for talent from outside the company or within among current employees, it just makes good business sense to invest the time in more precisely matching the individual to the job. Caliper recommendations for hiring are based on the substantive data that our personality assessment profile uncovers.
The pay-off to this investment of time and effort is that people whose core personality strengths are matched to a specific job are much more likely to give the return you want on your hiring investment. In other words, when you assess your job candidates with personality testing, engage them in multiple interviews, and check references carefully, you are much less likely to make a hiring mistake. Once you have made a good hire, train your new employee in the way that he or she needs in order to succeed, and establish a well-defined relationship between manager and employee with clear expectations based on an in-depth understanding of their core strengths and competencies, you have in essence, avoided the broken hiring process that plagues many companies today. Whatever investment you make in testing job candidates, providing the right training and establishing a solid manager – employee relationship will be offset by the productivity that you get from your new hires, and in fact the entire team. Whether in sales, management, or leadership, people who are most productive over long periods of time have found a set of activities and tasks to engage in that is consistent with their skills and their basic personality dynamics. The irony is that many of the executives who are complaining about the lack of productivity of the people they hire don't realize that they are, unwittingly, reinforcing a broken process—a broken process for hiring and a broken process for developing top talent. If what you are doing is not working, don't keep doing it. Instead, to find your next top performer, first you have to ensure that your expectations are clear and that you know what you need. What is involved in succeeding in this role? It all starts by understanding the job and being clear on what results you hope to achieve. Continued on page 42

Sales Trends | Continued from page 14 OK, the illustration may seem a bit over the edge. Most industries are not at the point, yet, where they will charge for sales calls. But in the information rich, too-many-things-to-do world in which you and your customers live, time is more precious than money. When you ask for your customer's time, you are asking for something very limited and very precious. If you take 30 minutes of his day, he has invested 6.25% of his workday in you. He has a thousand other things he could have done in that time. What did he get for that investment with you? The point is this: If you are going to be successful in the information age economy, you must focus on bringing something of value to your customers every time you ask them to invest their time in you. You must view every sales call through the perspective of the value you can bring to your customers. A sales call is no longer just about the objectives that you want to achieve, it is also about the objectives your customer wants to achieve. It's as if you present that $150.00 bill at the end of every sales call and expect to be paid. So, how can you adjust to new situations? Here are some proven practices that will help you make the transition: 1. Understand your customer's situation as thoroughly as possible before you take his time. Your customer expects you to know something about his business, his customers, his processes and his problems before you visit. That means that you must spend more time before sales calls gathering information about that customer. Check to see if the customer has a website, and gather useful information from it. Call and ask the receptionist to send you a company brochure. Ask around your company to see what other colleagues might know about the account. If you don't know that the customer is qualified and worth your time, you will be wasting his.
2. Think through the sales call from the customer's perspective. Put yourself in the shoes of that customer. What else does he/she have to do other than talk to you? What problems is he facing, what opportunities? How can you bring him or her something that will simplify his job, help him overcome his problems, or reduce the amount of time he spends on your project? This is a simple little technique that can make a huge difference in your performance. Before every sales call, stop and think about this question: What will the customer gain from the time he/she spends with me? If you can't articulate some gain for the customer, consider not making the sales call. I realize that this is a change in thinking for a lot of sales reps. But it's a change that is coming, whether you want to make it or not. Your choice is to be a leader and thus gain a significant edge over your competition, or to wait until the market forces you to change. The choice is yours.

FMCSA announces medical certificate extension FMCSA will publish a final rule extending the requirement for interstate commercial drivers to have paper copies of their medical examiner’s certifications with them when operating a commercial motor vehicle. An advance copy of the rule has been posted to FMCSA’s website. This requirement will stay in effect until January 30, 2015. This requirement applies to any drivers with either a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or the commercial learner’s permit (CLP) who must be medically certified under 49 CFR part 391. Please note that drivers are still required to certify their status (e.g., interstate or intrastate, exempt or non-exempt) with the State Driver License Agency (SDLA) agency before January 30, 2014 and to provide the SDLA a copy of any new medical certificate received after January 30, 2012. FMCSA also extended the requirement for interstate motor carriers to retain copies of their drivers’ medical certificates in their driver qualification files. This extension of the requirement to carry a medical certificate card was needed to ensure that all SDLAs are prepared to accept and transmit the medical qualification of CDL and CLP holders on the Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) driver record. • www.fmcsa.dot.gov

Aftermarket | Continued from page 22 your service department developed pay for performance programs based upon productivity of technicians using flat rate billing? Reality: Many dealers and service managers are too quick to comment that flat rate won’t work in their dealerships. Most dealers and service managers don’t recognize that in many areas flat rates are already being used: planned maintenance program, lease with maintenance programs, customer quotes and, of course manufacturer warranty programs and set up or make ready programs. Unfortunately, many of these same dealers are not using these flat rates as a measure of performance or as an incentive compensation program for technicians. If they were they would have the beginning of an answer for paying a technician $30.00 an hour. Reality: Most equipment dealerships fail to establish realistic labor rates. Your shop is generally labor intensive and contributes to some of the largest expense dollars within the dealership. Every year your expenses increase and your technician’s wages should go up. Unfortunately, over the years your shop labor rates have not kept pace with your shop and payroll expenses. Reality: If you are not reviewing your labor rates at least twice a year and making the necessary changes, then you are falling behind. If technicians’ hourly rates are going up and if we agree that they will continue to go up based upon the shortage of qualified technicians, then a continued review of your shop labor rate is certainly necessary. Pegging your hourly labor rate to what your local competition is charging is foolish. Set your labor rate to develop a profit for your dealership. If your competitors want to go broke, let them! You are a survivor
and you are going to market the value added service your dealership provides! You’ve got to sell your services for what they are worth and at a profit to the dealership! Reality: Most equipment dealers don’t have the “guts” to raise their labor rates. Reality: Using ridiculous internal rates dramatically draws down your absorption rate as well as your after market profitability. As an example, we were working with a dealer in the northeast whose labor rate is $116.95 an hour. This dealer told his customers that his labor rate was the highest in the metropolitan area, but that in return his customers got the best value for their dollar when they had their service work performed at his dealership. This was value-added salesmanship! He had “top-notch” technicians whom he paid well and technicians who worked on a pay for performance plan that permitted them to earn, in many instances above the $30.00 an hour wage. May we suggest that in the coming years, dealer principals and service managers and parts managers face up to reality? No other area within an equipment dealership offers the profitable opportunities that are provided by your aftermarket ... for success focus upon those opportunities! Serious Reality: Many manufacturers are “establishing” fixed labor rates and fixed parts pricing for what the manufacturer calls National Accounts. If this practice continues to grow it could have a detrimental effect upon what we have said above. John R. Walker is president of Aftermarket Services Consulting Co. Inc.

Human Element | Continued from page 32 Then screen out people you know won't cut it in your organization. Integrate your company's values and culture into the interviewing process. Using a personality assessment in your hiring process can help you on many levels. It will help you understand what distinguishes your top performers. What sets them apart from those in the middle of the pack, and those at the bottom? Who in the middle has the potential to become a top performer—if they were, perhaps, working with a different manager; or given coaching in a specific area? Equally important, the insights from a study of the qualities that distinguish your top performers will help you to recognize those strengths in promising job applicants. Such insights also will help you to uncover even the most cunning of interview stars. And what you learn about your current top performers will help you to discover people already in your organization who possess the qualities to be your next top producers—but they may be doing something completely different. By looking for potential rather than experience, you will hire and develop top performers. Don't look to the past to change things. Look to the future, to someone's potential, to what they, and your organization, can become. About Caliper - For nearly half a century, Caliper has been helping companies achieve peak performance by advising them on hiring the right people, managing individuals most effectively and developing productive teams. The accuracy, objectivity and depth of our consulting approach enable us to provide solutions that work for over 25,000 companies.

Beacon introduces new air dock leveler
Akro-Mils introduces Multi-Load Tote — Ideal for AS/RS Systems
EnerSys® expands NexSys® battery offering
Unlike electric hydraulic or mechanical dock levelers, an air dock leveler is designed to be used with shop air or a compact compressor. Beacon Industries, Inc. introduces the BX3 series of pneumatic powered levelers which are designed with emergency mechanical pull chain override in case of power outages. The air dock leveler helps aid in efficiency and safety by compensating for height differences between the loading dock floor and truck bed. Its standard features include auto-recycling lip, pneumatic operation, positive hold-down for up-down float during service, and push-button controls. With a push of a foot, the lip gently lowers onto the truck bed. These pneumatic powered levelers feature heavy-duty ¼”, 55,000lb. minimum yield steel which is supported by structural C channel and 60,000-lb. safety legs. The included lip keepers can also be used as night locks for added security. They also allow for cross traffic to safely cross over when stored. A wide variety of sizes are available to fit individual needs, and custom sizes are available as well. • www.beacontechnology.com
Akro-Mils announces the next-generation tote for maximizing space in automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) — the MultiLoad Tote. The MultiLoad Tote expands and improves upon traditional tote design by providing maximum flexibility as users’ storage needs change — it can be used as a stand-alone tote, or with optional, removable bin cups and dividers to create individual compartments within the tote. The sidewall clip design (patent pending) allows the cups and dividers to attach quickly and securely to the tote. Individual cups can be removed from the tote for easy handling at a picking or packing station. The tote features a reinforced flat bottom for smooth conveyor travel, and ribbed sidewalls and a reinforced rim for maximum durability and long service life. This stackable container also features large label areas. Akro-Mils’ versatile and customizable MultiLoad Tote is ideal for maximizing space in miniload automated storage and retrieval systems, conveyor systems, order picking and packing, and general storage and logistics applications. • www.akro-mils.com
CLARK introduces 4,500 & 3,000 lbs capacity pallet trucks
Flange mounting collars manufactured to customer specs
EnerSys® recently expanded its NexSys® product line to include the NexSys 558-AH battery. The NexSys 558 battery consists of six NexSys 12-volt 186-AH blocs connected in series/parallel to achieve 24-volts and 558-AH. This setup provides the ability to charge at rates between 32 and 70 percent of the battery’s capacity for fast and flexible opportunity charging. The NexSys 558-AH battery is constructed from Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) and features compressed Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) plate separators with high electrolyte absorption and stability to enhance cyclic capability and provide extreme vibration resistance. The battery is virtually maintenance-free as it does not require watering. The exceptional charge acceptance characteristics of TPPL batteries allows for rapid charging during shift breaks, extending the battery run times well beyond conventional industrial batteries. The NexSys 558-AH battery measures at 30.35 inches in height, 12.77 inches in width, 25.35 inches in length and will fit many 24-volt, Class III lift trucks. Because the battery can be charged at such fast rates, it requires the use of EnerSys EnForcer® chargers, which have higher efficiency ratings compared to many conventional chargers. • www.enersysmp.com

New ergonomic lift for 5-gallon pails The innovative Pail Partner™ lifter/transporter from Lift’n Buddy makes back strain from lifting and transporting heavy 5-gallon pails a thing of the past. The Pail Partner’s special yoke securely holds a plastic or metal pail just below its rigid collar. The yoke can be easily raised or lowered as necessary to conveniently pick up stacks of up to three pails, add to or take from a stack, wheel the stack to another location, and place the pails on a floor, shelf, tailgate, etc. The compact, ergonomic unit is the first of its kind. A full pail of paint, joint compound, food, etc., can weigh more than 50 pounds, and worker fatigue, back strain and injury can often result from carrying such pails. A traditional hand truck helps transport these heavy containers, but the user has to lift every pail to load/ unload it. In contrast, the Pail Partner has a battery-powered lift that effortlessly adjusts to the appropriate height to pick and place pails. • www.liftnbuddy.com
Fork lift scale uploads data in real-time An NTEP-certified fork lift scale that is capable of lifting, transferring, weighing, data collection, storage and wireless transmission in real-time is available from Alliance Scale, Inc. of Canton, Massachusetts. The Alliance Rice Lake CLS420 Fork Lift Scale is NTEPcertified 5,000 lbs. and mounts on the fork carriage and permits lifting, transfer, weighing, data collection, and storage. Featuring a wireless WI-FI weight indicator and controller in the cab, it is capable of data logging and storing up to 10,000 records and uploading data in real-time to a computer or network. Providing accurate shipment identifiers and weight-related data such as PRO number, employee ID, last transmission data, and estimated- and actual weight and skids, the weight indicator has a 1MB memory. Eliminating the need for a floor scale, this fork lift scale has a rechargeable lithium-ion smart battery that runs 24 hours continuous and fully recharges in 8 hours. • www.alliancescale.com
CLARK introduces new 8,000 -11,000 lbs pneumatic tire lift trucks CLARK Material Handling Company is excited to introduce the C40-55 Series with Tier 4 Final Compliant Engines. The CLARK C40-55 Series lift trucks utilize the Deutz TD3.6 diesel engine featuring common rail direct injection fuel system delivering 74 hp at 2200 rpm and 243 ft/lbs of torque at 1600 rpm providing “optimal power” in the rpm range that is most effective. The advanced design and efficiency of the Deutz engine is tier 4 final compliant without the need for costly additional diesel particulate filters, UREA additives or productivity robing “burn off” cycles. • www.clarkmhc.com

Redesigned stackers are more stable, manueverable than ever Presto Lifts has redesigned its PowerStakTM line of compact, fully powered stackers for improved performance and ergonomics. Several new features have been added as standard equipment on all PowerStak models. A turtle speed setting reduces drive speed by 50% for more precise positioning. Straddle legs fabricated from solid steel provide additional rigidity and eliminate deflection, even under maximum load (2,200 lbs.) The electrical system has been upgraded with a reliable, industry-recognized controller and contactors. Power is now delivered by two sealed, maintenance-free AGM batteries and the new heavy-duty built-in charger has fuse protection and a rugged casing. Other changes include a new component arrangement for better heat dissipation and better maintenance access. PowerStak units are built on a short yet extremely stable wheelbase to enhance maneuverability, even in tight quarters. An ergonomically designed handle puts all controls within easy reach for maximum operator comfort and convenience. Forward- and reverse-drive thumb switches are located on both sides of the handle to accommodate left- or right-hand operation. • www.prestolifts.com
Introducing a new quieter and more efficient fan The new 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor from AMETEK Floorcare & Specialty Motors is designed with technology that allows it to operate 7dB and 10 Sones quieter than a comparable 5.1-inch diameter motor. In addition to an innovative fan-diffuser system, the motor features an improved motor lamination that increases its efficiency by between 30 and 40% and a novel commutator design that allows it to run cooler and reduces vibration. Overall, the new 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor is more than a pound lighter than a comparable 5.7inch version and half a pound lighter than even a 5.1-inch diameter model. The new 5.4-inch diameter vacuum motor is well suited for a wide range of demanding vacuum motor applications,
especially those where its light weight, compact size, and quieter, more efficient operation are key advantages. These include commercial back pack vacuums, small central vacuum products and other high-demand floor care appliances. • www.ametekfsm.com
