Situation

Our customer had 12 locations and needed a way to control inventory and costs for print, ad specialties and uniforms. They also wanted to give the manager the ability to approve or edit purchase requests.

Solution

American Solutions for Business created an e-commerce site that allowed the manager to approve all purchases easily while simplifying the order process for all their locations. Each store was set up with a unique username and password to access the e-commerce site and place orders, which were routed to management for approval automatically. Not only was the customer able to save time, but they also saved money by buying in bulk as the site allowed items to be disbursed to the stores as needed.

Situation

Our customer was struggling with the amount of time it took to order their office and print materials and wanted to streamline the process. Each location was purchasing from multiple vendors, and they needed to consolidate their purchasing. Being in a business with constant deadlines, they wanted to focus on researching and reporting rather than compiling orders.

Solution

American Solutions for Business created an e-store that allowed each location to order their business cards, letterhead, forms, envelopes and labels from each site in just a few clicks. We were able to integrate and personalize this online ordering solution to meet each location’s unique needs, which provided an efficient and convenient outlet for ordering their office products and other print materials.

Success

Fewer headaches and more headlines. We were able to help simplify their daily operations by consolidating all their needs into one easy, convenient e-commerce solution. With less time spent on ordering materials, they were able to use their time more efficiently and effectively.

Situation

Our customer needed a way to streamline the ordering, printing, distribution and billing of their national calendar program. Armed with a budget of $350,000 — they needed thousands of calendars sent to 475 different dealer locations with 310 custom imprints. They were looking to transform a manual process into an automated option that could handle credit card transactions. Also, they had experienced quality control issues in the past that had reduced their dealer participation rates by 32 percent. They needed a solution that would re-energize their dealers to participate in this marketing effort.

Pedals to the metal. With an online program in place, this automated program has saved our customer more than $50,000 in administrative and contract costs.
