Point of Purchase and Point of Sale
Point of Purchase and Point of Sale fulfillment has been a core competency at Fulfillment America for over 20 years. Simply put, the requirements for POP/POS fulfillment success are twofold:
- First, is the ability to support complex customer requirements;
- Second, is having the operational infrastructure to support those requirements.
Fulfillment America succeeds on both counts.
We are able to support many different client specific rules for POP assemblies with multiple kitting requirements. We can streamline the shipping process to guarantee on-time deliveries. We offer the following POP/POS services to all of our clients.
Support for Complex Customer Requirements
A typical POP customer requires material distribution to multiple store locations across a broad geographic region. Each store location typically has uniquely defined attributes, such as size, demographic, or usage volume, that form key data points in the operation of that account. These attributes must be kept current in a customer profile in order to maximize operational and cost efficiencies. We maintain this customer data in secure databases that interface with our warehouse management system and forecasting tools in order to support complex customer requirements. This ensures that day-to-day operations such as store minimum inventory levels are maintained, but more importantly any changes such as additional store openings or unexpected demand, can be quickly integrated into the system and the customer's operations.
Strong Kitting and Assembly Capabilities
- Ability to kit for stock or build kits on the fly
- Client custom kitting online
- Quality Control
During a promotional production job, each customer account will be allocated a dedicated kitting and assembly area, which will not be broken down until the production job is complete. Fulfillment America has access to a large, experienced labor pool which ensures adequate staffing for all jobs – often with the same personnel for a given account to minimize training requirements and ensure consistency for repeat promotions and unique customer requirements.
We can streamline the shipping process to guarantee on-time deliveries. Another of our key service offerings is the ability for FAI to create online web applications for ordering miscellaneous items and to provide local market advertising campaigns, which includes a true web-to-print application.
