Before approaching Sprint, our client’s UK based marketing team, they stored all their marketing material. In-house within several locations in their offices at Heathrow Airport. Without a centralised location point, it meant that it was difficult to keep track of all their stock and created additional workload on the marketing team when material was required for events and exhibitions. This created frustration all round when the field staff could not easily access material.

Our client needed a solution that could manage their entire inventory in a safe and secure environment, allow easy online access 24/7 365 days a year, and would provide the field staff with the ability to see at a glance all the marketing material available and place orders direct  anytime of the day. It was also important that the required solution allow them to track all orders through to delivery and that any queries be handled quickly and efficiently with the minimal impact in the marketing team.
