Strategic Leadership 2018 Fall Conference

Jul 23, 2018 9:45:01 AM

What’s Next for Your Business?

Strategic planning is critical to the growth of any business.  If a business does not have strategic planning it is very easy to spin wheels and waste time.  Understanding the fundamental objectives of a business and maintaining focus on them at all times are a few keys to success.  Strategic planning provides the direction and focus employees require to stay on task. 

Companies often started with planning with a mission statement.  For example, at American Payment Solutions we started by writing a mission statement, “To provide superior quality payment processing services that: MERCHANTS are extremely happy to use, PARTNERS prefer, SOFTWARE PROVIDERS select for their customer base, and EMPLOYEES are proud of. This mission helps the APS team focus and deliver on the promises to our customers and partners and hold each other accountable for cooperation and results.

To accomplish this goal, we build strategic partnerships with like-minded companies in our industry who value participating with our organization for a win-win outcome.  Our partners appreciate that our plan to realize our vision includes them every step of the way.  We strive to be the best value-added-partner as possible by including our partners in events like the upcoming Strategic Leadership Association (SLA) 2018 Fall Conference. 

Conferences, like the SLA, are an invaluable way for our partners to maintain connection with one another and leverage best practices together.  We share the same target markets and often have mutual customers.  Please join American Payment Solutions at the upcoming SLA Fall Conference.  You will meet like-minded leaders who will be sharing mission statements, vision statements and plans to execute on each when it comes to growth, adding a new ERP/CRM related product, transitioning, and/or creating your overall legacy.  Ideas are not created in a vacuum.  Don't miss this opportunity to build relationships and leverage the knowledge of partners with similar goals as your own!  See below for more information:
