And today, trade is being considered as the life force of a business organization. But what precisely is the role of TDS in the company? Most companies think that as soon as a TDS engages for specific accounts, the difficult task is already done. Most companies would usually think that clients only like the products and services, and they don’t see any reason as to why clients would disengage with them. This approach is very uncertain as clients can easily let go for a number of reasons. These may involve displeasure with products, poor customer service, among others.

Have you asked your doctor about flu and pneumococcal vaccines?
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that vaccination is a simple and effective way of preventing many harmful diseases. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines vaccines as products “that stimulate a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting that person from that disease”. The vaccine lets our body “know” the disease-causing microbe, and it allows the body to build an immune response. This immune response protects the body from that microbe if in case it enters the body in the future.
