Fulfillment

Have you had to trim spending on collateral items because of the cost of managing and distributing these items? Relax, we're here to help. We offer total collateral management and fulfillment solutions for businesses of any size and any type. Below is an example of a total collateral management and fulfillment program we currently provide for one of our regions' premier home builders.

This builder has 17 communities located throughout Maryland and Virginia. Their inventory consists of 229 separate pieces of collateral. When a sales professional is in need of materials, they place an order through their own web storefront (which we provide and maintain). The order is then fulfilled and shipped per the sales professionals' instructions. When a specific item drops below a predetermined level, the storefront automatically generates an email to the marketing director, notifying them that supplies are running low.

This client has found that using our program makes the process of keeping 17 communities stocked with materials efficient, and provides dramatic cost savings by reducing overhead.

Workflow Automation

Art & Negative offers a variety of innovative workflow automation solutions to assist our customers in keeping overhead costs low. Our secure data center can communicate with a variety of other network systems for a total hands-off experience. This saves you from having someone prepare print ready files. See below, for example of how Art & Negative's solution minded staff helps clients add to their bottom line.

We work with a variety of healthcare companies that send out new enrollment packages to approximately 25,000 recipients per month, and annual renewal packages to yet another 10,000 customers monthly. We receive daily data files into our HIPAA compliant servers, then process the data through our postal hygiene software to ensure they will reach their destination. From there the data is transmitted to our page composition software, then output via production digital presses. From there the forms containing variable data are inserted along with other materials into envelopes using out state-of-the-art FlowmasterTM mailing machine, and then presented to the postal service. Our in-house verification and reporting process provides our customers reports detailing their mailing activities.

Our client has been able to reduce overhead, as well as errors, by using one of the many workflow solutions Art & Negative has available.

E-Business Solutions

Order your printing online, manage your inventory items and customize your branded templates. It's easy to use and will save you time and money. We can customize each storefront to match your specific goals and objectives. Below is an example of an e-business solution we manage for a large regional healthcare provider. This solution has helped the affiliate members locate all of their marketing materials in one centralized directory and save their staff valuable time.

The healthcare provider has over 35 medical centers and offices in the Baltimore/Washington area. They were looking for a partner that could provide an internet based solution that would enable employees to order customized marketing materials, collateral items, booths and displays for community events and expositions.

Art & Negative provided the customer with a custom built website. The customer can place orders for customized open enrollment kits. Users can upload Print on Demand materials that they wish to have added to their kits. Art & Negative prints the materials, assembles the kits, adds any giveaway items they have ordered, and delivers to the location the user specifies.

Our custom built website allows users to track the progress of their order in real time, and provides delivery information including the time the materials delivered and who signed for them. Budget managers can easily track spending by departments or individuals and users can view inventory levels of all items in real time as well as receive automated warning emails when inventories reach critical levels. The client also has access to a host of reports providing tremendous transparency.

This client has found our solution to be extremely beneficial, as we have offered them a single source provider for all of their marketing and event needs, thus enabling the customer to save money and have their goods reach their clients faster. The streamlined billing process has also made their operations much more efficient.

Let Art & Negative create an online storefront solution that meets the needs of your company or organization.
