Planning & Training Resources
As with the rest of the country and the world, the last week has brought a great deal of change to Vision2 Marketing in how we operate our daily business. We have taken the step of asking our rep team to work from home for the next few weeks until we can determine that it is safe for them to travel and meet with our valued dealers. In the meantime, we have collected a wealth of resources for you and your team to use to further your education, or to offer products and services that are currently in high demand due to the Corona outbreak. As always, please reach out to your local Vision2 rep, or our offices directly, if you have any needs or require any service
