Marketing Expertise
Why do key online and in-store retailers partner with Powerplay? We understand the need today for a reliable partner that can support the retailer as the primary contact for a strategic product line. We provide the best products at competitive prices and are the direct conduit from manufacturer to retailer for every brand promotional program the day they are made available. As the sole point of contact, we assure the transmission of promotions funds in real time, making programs seamless and painless for our retailers.
Fulfillment Services
Providing exceptional inventory management by professionals means we can pick, pack, and ship the same day. Ordering custom packaging solutions that fit our retailers’ needs, as well as return management programs, has cemented our relationship with online and in-store retailers. Our logistics management and real-time online reporting keeps our customers up to date.
Operations Support
Making sure orders get out the door and into customers’ hands without a hitch is the single most important job we perform. No excuses, no “reasons” are acceptable for failing to execute each and every order flawlessly. It doesn’t matter how many orders need to be executed, it doesn’t matter how complex the order, we will get it done. Our staff delivers real-time inventory feed, same-day shipping and shipment tracking, custom invoicing and packing slip, toll-free customer/technical support, and dedicated product management teams.
