CINCINNATI, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds of Tier I suppliers occupy the trade show floor at Toyota's Opportunity Exchange each year looking to make connections with women and minority-owned businesses. One of those is Multi-Training Systems of Southfield, Mich.
"I've been attending Opportunity Exchange for more than 10 years," said Donna Charles, Multi-Training Systems sales and marketing manager. "We're doing working with 10 or 15 different suppliers as a result of this event." Charles added that doing business with Toyota Tier I and other Tier II suppliers has led to innovation within her company. "Each year that I come here I get something different out of it. What has been very meaningful to me is working with the groups in terms of utilizing technology to promote my business. At last year's event, the organizers released a great app that we could use on the trade show floor. So I started to think about how I could use apps in our training programs and to promote my business."
