Performance matters especially with your fulfillment program. In track, a split-second can make the difference between finishing first and coming in second. In football, the precision with which the quarterback throws can make the difference between a touchdown and an incomplete pass.
Performance matters in marketing production and fulfillment services, too.
- If your materials arrive a day or two after your competitors’ delivery, you may be losing sales.
- If your inventory sits on a shelf until it’s obsolete, you’re wasting precious print budget.
- If you’re constantly running out of stock, you could be losing sales while those items are on backorder. Or wasting print dollars on rush reprint charges. Or both. (Not to mention wondering whether the items flying off the shelf are actually going to good use.)
If you’re experiencing challenges like these, your fulfillment program needs an overhaul. It’s time to take a closer look at what you’re doing – and how you could be doing it better.
