Description: Ten years ago, adding amplifiers to factory systems was a special occasion for most shops. Today, it’s an everyday task. This new class, developed jointly by Dan Bowman of Hot Rides and Ken Ward of Educar, gives guidance on what to do before and after the OEM-integration audio sale.  Everyday OEM Integration is about selling the right gear and the right plan up front. Give your and your shop the best opportunity to have a happy customer and a profitable transaction.
