More and more FFLs are relying on advanced technologies to help manage their inventories, organize range reservations, screen employees, process payments and other day-to-day tasks. They’re also increasingly using technology to stay ATF compliant and secure through the use of electronic bound books, e-4473 forms and other firearms record-keeping chores. To help you keep abreast of the latest technology designed to improve business for the firearms industry, we’ve asked Jon Rydberg to host the special Retailer Seminar, “Leveraging the Industry’s Hottest Technology Trends.”
Rydberg is the CEO and founder of Orchid Advisors, a firearms industry compliance and operations consultancy firm and an NSSF-endorsed services provider. Recently ranked as an Axial Top 100 Growth CEO, Rydberg has more than 20 years of experience as a global consulting and firearms industry executive providing CEO-level advice to federally regulated manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers. He is one of the foremost resources in the U.S. for transforming ATF compliance and has led pre- and-post-ATF inspection turnarounds at the industry’s largest FFLs. Often hired to build the process and systems infrastructure that integrate the financial and operational business objectives of an FFL with their serial number management, NFA, Import and electronic A&D activities, Rydberg has been called upon by ATF, NSSF and the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) to deliver expert-level knowledge on ATF compliance and industry operations. An author of multiple books on ATF compliance, he is the designer of the largest enterprise resource planning (ERP) and FFL electronic bound book (A&D book) software platforms.
During “Leveraging the Industry’s Hottest Technology Trends” you’ll learn how today’s firearm companies rely on technology to enable their business and how these tools are being deployed to drive improved retail sales, manufacturing output and coordination across the supply chain. You’ll hear about the data analytics being used to predict consumer buying habits, see how applications are providing visibility to inventory levels and assist with order placement from manufacturer to distributor to retailer, and how retail point-of-sale applications and are integrating with the regulatory environment.
