VITAL Systems Cooperative To Host Charter Meeting In Las Vegas


Responding to a growing demand by forward-looking custom installation dealers and integrators for a full day information sharing session, VITAL MGMT founders Paul Starkey and Steve Firszt today announced that its VITAL Systems Cooperative will hold its first-ever meeting in conjunction with CES 2014.
The one-day invitation-only event will take place on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at the Business Suites Hughes Center located at 3753 Howard Hughes Parkway in Las Vegas. The meeting will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. More information can be found on the VITAL MGMT website located at
The VITAL Systems Cooperative is the dealer organization that is part of VITAL MGMT’s “reverse merger” initiative focused on working on the business together before any formal merger of the companies takes place. As members of the VITAL Systems Cooperative, custom integration companies will collaborate, develop and implement uniform management systems and practices. The services cover financial planning and management, benchmarking, project management and administration, sales and marketing, and operations and production. Starkey and Firszt serve as executive directors of the cooperative.
“The foundational practices are ready to go,” Starkey said today. “Steve has spent the past nine years implementing his Top-Line Management System (TLM) with hundreds of integrators throughout the United States. We’ll be using the system platform and offering a far more comprehensive solution than Steve was able to deliver on his own. No other system provides the high impact guidance and personal relationship that this new system offers.”
The one-day meeting in Las Vegas will provide a detailed look at the new system, both for charter members and companies interested in the membership opportunity.
“We’re excited to get these like-minded dealers in a room to share our ideas and gain their feedback and insights,” Firszt said. “This will be the kick-off of the collaborative model, where dealers work together towards a common goal of profit, efficiency and ultimately a national entity devoted to custom systems design and installation.”
VITAL Systems Cooperative is a Missouri corporation comprised of independent custom integration companies from across the United States who share business, marketing and information services to better their respective businesses.
