In today's challenging business environment, Promotional Products’ companies are faced with increasing pressures from competitors to reduce costs, decrease lead times as well as improve and maintain quality.

Organizations in the Promotional Products’ space have specific requirements. A Distributor develops ideas for using promotional products in a marketing or promotional campaign, buys the items from the supplier and sells them to end-buyers. A Manufacturer manufactures the items and sells them to end-buyers. A Supplier manufactures, imports, converts and imprints promotional products offered for sale through the promotional products’ distributors.

Our promotional products’ solution, which leverages Odoo, automates the process of sourcing, storing, managing, manufacturing and distributing a company’s promotional items. The value of the talk is in our solution’s ability to unify business processes, encourage collaboration, provide freedom to shop, browse and negotiate, as well as focus on data for the dynamic trends.
