What news? Heard there were some big meetings today.
Patterson has elimated the Technology Rep position. Equipment specialists will be handling future digital and hardware sales. That's all I'm going to say at this moment. I'm sure you will being hearing much more about this in the next several days.
Thanks for keeping us informed.
So how does this affect CEREC? Just curious.
From what I hear Cerec specialists are still around. It was the Technology position that was eliminated. Tech reps sold digital, EagleSoft, and computers.
Nothing to do with CEREC Specialists
I heard something about Patterson making Eaglesoft aviailable for free....i guess they had quite a meeting today,something about changing the way dental sales are done, "hold the pickels hold the lettuce" this oughta be fun to watch, wonder if they reposition thier staff on the highend or if they just axed them?
I talked with several PTR's after this all happened and they are still with Patterson. Some will become territory reps, some CEREC reps and some equipment reps. Not sure what happened to all 80, but glad to here Patterson is trying to find places for them.
I interviewed with Patterson last week. Branch manager informed me of the possibility of a new position Patterson was creating. Wasn't giving out much info about it because they hadn't officially announced it. He said the position will be focused on training. Has anyone heard anything or have any details about this? Sounds like this could be replacing the Technology rep position.
Not sure. I don't think they would replace the technology rep position with another position. I think the TR and equipment rep, as well as the inside folks at Eaglesoft will pick up the pieces.
