Accessories Academy Overview

Brightstar started the Accessories Academy to expand on the already outstanding results our clients have seen from our distribution management and to accelerate their sell through with training and promotion programs. We realize that every business has different needs, and that a ‘one size fits all’ approach is not always effective. Training and education are an ongoing necessity, and we are here to guide you in that process.

Their Operations Manager described their results in the following way: “We have seen a 60% increase in accessory dollars per box since we began our Sales Foundations program.
