KICKER® Audio Re-Invents Product Training with Tech Force™

STILLWATER, USA – The timing of the 2018 SEMA Show launches a new chapter in product training for KICKER® Performance Audio, which will soon raise the bar for the industry as a whole. Rebranded as “Tech Force™,” KICKER saw an opportunity to evolve product and sales training well beyond the confines of the retail sales floor.

“This is our opportunity to change everything,” said Aaron Malin, the newly appointed Tech Force Global Manager. “Retailers want to know what value the KICKER brand brings to the store. For example, we can offer promotional opportunities, social media help and have an event that starts with educating staff, and then train their core customer group.”

Regular webinars, enhanced social media involvement and consumer trainings are all planned. Malin emphasized that the nature of these trainings must focus as much on deepening product knowledge as they are on making the experience fun and entertaining for employees and consumers alike.
