Back in the National Supply days, this company had a lot of value. Today, they bring very little to the table. They don’t bring knowledge, the SAP technology is ancient, they can only deliver parts. They will be out of business in a decade.

National was failing and no one wanted to buy them, so they bought their competitors and destroyed those companies too by injecting the same smug, know it all "non-strategies" that caused NOW to struggle in the first place... When you combine companies, you need to take the best from both businesses and capitalize on it, not do away with their successful aspects because it's "not the NOW way"... arrogance will be their downfall.
Cherechinsky surrounded himself with yes men too timid to raise their hand and question their "strategy" which is on a downward, abysmal descent into "me-too" land.
Hard to be in the supply business when you have no inventory. But, continue to hire yes men and women with no experience and see how well you survive in this market.
