You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
How do you determine if my print and marketing communications supply chain is optimized?
SupplyLogic will perform, at no cost, an initial assessment of your supply chain. Upon completion, we will deliver a detailed business case that outlines findings, recommendations and provides a future state solution aligned with your objectives.
How much time is required from my team to complete an engagement with SupplyLogic?
Our assessment process typically takes four to six weeks and only requires access to data and key stakeholders. We understand your time is valuable. Our process has been designed to avoid any disruption to your day-to-day operations.
What categories do you manage?
We manage all components of the print, marketing communications, and branded merchandise supply chain. This includes categories such as commercial print, direct mail, financial print, statements and confirms, point-of-sale signage, forms, labels, envelopes, packaging, apparel, and promotional items.
In addition to managing the product sourcing process, we provide warehousing, fulfillment and logistics services, and a best in class e-commerce storefront platform that eliminates the risk of using supplier provided ordering portals.
Do I need to outsource my entire supply chain to you?
We enter into three to five strategic outsourcing partnerships each year with companies that spend in excess of $10 Million annually in these categories. Our experience shows that when we manage the entire supply chain, our customers achieve better results and are able to refocus resources on core activities.
Why should I outsource my print and marketing communications supply chain, and why choose SupplyLogic?
We have found that companies which haven't optimized these categories incur higher risk, have a more fractured brand, and are missing the opportunity to capture significant savings.
The SupplyLogic approach has been recognized as "best in class" by leading private equity and consulting firms. Our integrated, customer-centric model extends your marketing organization and provides you with category experts and six sigma process skills which will rapidly deliver increased value to your supply chain.
