To effectively deliver a variety of materials to a distributed sales force and a variety of end users, we consolidate and ship marketing orders and samples in one shipment based on your business rules. We support your marketing campaigns including social media strategies by fulfilling product samples, promotional items and literature for site promotions such as Facebook and Twitter. In addition, we abide by all FDA food regulations, and use expiration alerts and lot tracking to properly keep track of food and beverage samples for a safely executed fulfillment solution.
We manage rebates, sweepstakes and contests supported by reporting and analytics to help with program support and decision making. With stringent fraud controls, Archway has built efficient processes to manage rebates, distribute checks, collect sweepstakes and contest submissions, and hold the drawings for winning sweepstakes or contest entries.
Archway’s create an order management interface custom to your business rules. This system can be accessed through a web-based portal or integrated to your existing system. Administrators can determine user rules, and have virtual control of inventory management to manage who can order what, when and how many. Users can view thumbnail images of available materials that apply to them, create templates or pre-orders, track budgets, see shipping recommendations, run reports and receive important notifications. Once orders are placed, we kit materials together cutting packaging and shipping costs. Reporting and analytics tools also show you ordering metrics to track trends by sales rep or geography.
Providing time sensitive materials requires an effective inventory management with accurate expiration and lot tracking. Inventory information is tracked at the item and location level and never mixed within storage locations, giving you the visibility you need in case of recall. Our systems are built to manage food and beverage samples safely according to your business rules, temperature and humidity requirements, and according to FDA food regulations.
Archway can support your new product launches and test markets by providing co-packing services, creating specialized packaging or repacking product for distribution. With our facilities in 13 major metropolitan areas, we are close to most major food and beverage manufacturers for convenience and cost effective co-packing solutions.
