  • The Manufacturers' Representatives should be trained by a small CMI sales team on how to market the cushion pads. The focus of the training should be the cost savings benefit of the curled metal pads, the potential dangers of the asbestos pads, and the CMI brand and product name. The pads currently in use are generic and not marketed or branded. Establishing a product name is important in promoting the diffusion of the product in the marketplace.
