Inventory generally represents a company's largest investment and as such businesses are continually evaluating resource allocation, processes and performance goals in order to improve operations. This is especially true when it comes to marketing inventory, where it is estimated that on average, companies annually discard approximately 30 percent of their printed materials.
In the white paper, "Market 'Smarter' with E-stores," Archway, a leader in marketing operations management and fulfillment services, provides guidance and best practices for online inventory management systems to streamline existing inventory processes, reduce operational costs and do more with less while still maintaining their brand presence.
"Put simply, inventory management is a balancing act that requires constant monitoring of incoming and outgoing material," explains Mike Moroz, president of Archway. "But despite all of the tools available online for logistics, inventory management and purchasing, it is surprising how inefficient some marketing departments remain. By understanding the role of online tools, like Archway's e-store, marketers can manage inventory easily and reduce the amount of time and money spent."
Archway's e-stores, often called sales portals, are an integral part of the company's Order Management Solution. Each e-store is customized to meet the specific needs of individual clients and adheres to industry requirements and regulations.
