In 2007 Kathryn Schifferle helped launch a national, professional, sales association in the Work Truck Industry, which was designed to assist those doing commercial truck sales. To support those efforts, she developed a member website and published a quarterly magazine which informed and educated on all aspects of selling commercial trucks, plus new product information. She saw an opportunity to help commercial salespeople save time and sell more trucks through the application of technology to their day-to-day problems.
In April of 2012, Kathryn launched a market trial of Work Truck Solutions’ service for dealers in the Pacific Northwest, working with the dealers to test and modify the service. In 2013 the first dealer was launched, and since then Kathryn and the Work Truck Solutions team have continued to build trusted relationships with dealers and other stakeholders in the industry.
Today Work Truck Solutions is serving dealers from all major commercial OEM brands across the entire United States. Work Truck Solutions also integrates body product information directly from body manufacturer partners, to better serve both the truck buyer and the truck sales professional.
Work Truck Solutions also works with pool companies to expand dealers’ inventory, and with Fleet Management Companies to expand their customer base.
Headquartered in Northern California with a new office in Michigan, Work Truck Solutions also partners with motormindz–a dynamic group of senior automotive executives and thought leaders with deep insight into all facets of the industry.
