3. Manage & Monitor
With our innovative and fully bespoke PDS+ online stock management system, your entire fulfilment process is managed in one, central place. An unlimited number of approved users in your organisation can submit pick/collation requests. You can also easily track and report on deliveries, with complete visibility over all projects.
With 200+ branches requiring promotional materials on a continual basis, it proved challenging for our client – a leading wholesale electrical distributor – to manage the high volume of requests for marketing collateral. Read our case study to discover how PDS partnered with Rexel to provide a fulfilment solution and other services that empowered all branches to access promotional materials on demand.
For example, by supporting Rexel with the fulfilment of their new catalogue, which branches could order via a bespoke PDS+ online fulfilment system, PDS helped to increase delivery success and ensure data processing compliance when delivering to recipients’ home addresses (due to remote working arrangements being in place).
With one point of contact and one source for all services, Rexel’s marketing and procurement leaders have been able to consolidate costs and resources to save time, reduce waste, and improve budget control. They also have access to powerful data and insights that help them to focus their resources where they deliver the greatest value.
We enhance our fulfilment services with bespoke PDS+ software that offers end-to-end tracking for orders, inventory and all other aspects of your fulfilment project. Built to your specifications, this user-friendly technology provides an unlimited number of stakeholders in your organisation with complete visibility and control over the entire fulfilment process through a central, secure system that is always easily accessible online.
