Mobility Businesses Inventory Ingenuity: A Smarter Move

Imagine a healthcare facility, an assisted living community, or a private residence. What do they all have in common? They depend on mobility and accessibility equipment to ensure a high quality of life for those in their care. For mobility equipment businesses, the stakes couldn’t be higher.
