Phase II -- B.O.S.S. Webinars

Phase two of the University is a week-long practicum and webinar series on the proprietary software tool developed by the firm; the B.O.S.S.©.  The Broker's Operations and Sales System (the B.O.S.S.© ) is the nation’s most advanced web platform for business brokerage.  The proprietary tool developed by We Sell Restaurants functions as a customer relationship management (CRM) tool, a seller and listing live database tool and the only “Hot Report” and “Broker’s Dashboard” in the nation, tracking the most important activity and deals for a broker to focus on and giving real time feedback on Key Performance Indicators. Students engage in daily webinars and apply their knowledge with exercises and testing that assure their competency on the platform before moving forward in the program.
