Our client needed a single card provider to manage every detail of the annual production of several million cards. Critical requirements were numerous. They included the timely production of high-quality cards with designs and features that appealed to consumers; a dozen different card designs for each brand; complete brand alignment; and maintaining budget limits. Card production previously exceeded their budget by 10%, but by implementing new efficiencies and processes, we achieved our client’s goals for 20% under budget.

The Challenge

  • Client had 7,000+ users with different ordering and visibility requirements creating ongoing inconsistencies.
  • Varying ordering processes made it complicated to do accurate forecasting and inventory control.
  • Shifting order processes created higher costs.

Archway Solution

  • Provided in-depth analysis of aging and excess inventory to help better manage inventory storage.
  • Established a new online e-store to re-categorize inventory and simplify ordering for current users.
  • Streamlined and assigned specific business units to allow users to see and order only what they require for either specific programs or regular daily orders.
  • Consolidated existing online e-store categories to further streamline ordering process.

Results

  • Developed over 2 dozen unique card designs.
  • Utilized bar code and QR code redemption capture to accommodate unique shapes.
  • Achieved complete brand compliance.
  • Card designs developed by Archway were 20% under budget, while client revenue and customer loyalty were improved.
