PROFITsystems, a HighJump Product and leading provider of solutions for home furnishings retailers, and PerformNOW, a business improvement firm, are announcing a partnership to deliver performance groups and business consulting to the industry.   David McMahon and Wayne McMahon, long time employees of PROFITsystems, have launched PerformNOW Inc, to continue to help companies improve their sales, profitability, and cash flow.   

Challenges of growing sales volume and margins simultaneously and maximizing profitability in a business environment with increasing costs, tough competition and employment demands, require furniture retailers to continuously evolve.  The new partnership between PROFITsystems and PerformNOW helps make this a reality.

Currently, PerformNOW facilitates 6 mastermind-type groups, each with 10-15 business members.  Group members are a mix improvement-minded and motivated people.  The groups include 3 owners groups, 1 sales managers group, and 2 operations groups.  The group format delivers value to the members through key metrics analysis/discussion, best practices, goal setting/accountability, operational tours, challenges/solutions, educational events, and business networking.  Most members of these groups use PROFITsystems software, which David and Wayne McMahon are masters, so the fit between PROFITsystems and PerformNOW is a natural.

In addition to the performance groups, PerformNOW and PROFITsystems also provide consulting services that are customized to individual businesses.
