Rogers, MN (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
Rogers, Minn.-based Archway has developed a series of white papers to give struggling marketers the insights and tools necessary to survive today's changing economy. The first in the series explores the growing trend of vendor consolidation.
Available for download at http://www.archway.com, the first white paper, "Recession-Proofing Through Vendor Consolidation," shares how to use vendor consolidation strategies for selecting the right partner, reducing costs and improving performance. Future white papers will focus on corporate visibility, surviving the recession and maximizing marketing return on investment.
"Over the last year we've seen the use of vendor consolidation strategies dramatically increase among Fortune 1000 companies," said Mike Moroz, president of Archway. "When applied correctly, vendor consolidation strategies are a proven strategy for responding to and supplementing budget and resource cuts. Companies that use this strategy are able to leverage the vendor relationships to reduce costs and hold vendors accountable for helping meet an organization's strategic goals. Working alongside our clients, we've gained a lifetime of experience and best practices that we are sharing through this and other white papers."
In addition to being available on Archway's Web site (http://www.archway.com/resources/whitepapers.aspx), the white paper series will be distributed through the company's new monthly AskArchway e-newsletter which puts into context marketing operations trends and best practices.
