WESTBOROUGH, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/24/12 -- When a brand puts its name on merchandise, the order taking, pick, pack and ship fulfillment process can make the critical difference between happy or irate customers, and that's why more artists and major brands are trusting PAID Inc. (PAYD) to "deliver" for them.
"Expanded business development efforts over the past nine months and an uptick in client referrals from multiple partners have doubled PAID's client roster in 2012 to more than 150 clients ranging from some of the world's best known names in entertainment to up and coming brands," stated Rich Rotman, PAID Inc. Chief Operating Officer. "The majority of our clients utilize PAID's fulfillment services in some capacity. In 2011, we began accepting clients who solely wanted fulfillment services. We've since won the business of more than 50 new fulfillment-only clients. Once clients experience the excellence of our fulfillment program and learn about our full range of services, with increasing frequency they engage us for our other brand management services."
PAID Inc. continually enhances its fulfillment processes and recently has recently implemented major upgrades. The result is dramatically improved efficiency and productivity across the entirety of its merchandising and fulfillment services, while enhancing accuracy and customer service complete with consistently competitive pricing.
Alan Breault Named Director of Fulfillment
Alan Breault joined PAID in December 2011 as the Director of Fulfillment. He brings over 20 years of experience in warehousing and distribution operations, working for both domestic and international distributors and third party logistics companies. He has earned a Lean Six Sigma green belt, designating him as an expert in quality management methods that identify and remove errors and minimize variability in manufacturing and business processes.
While at SP Richards, Breault was on the project team that implemented new pick ticket and warehouse management systems across distribution centers in their Northeast division and identified and implemented best practices across the centers. As a supervisor and project manager at Kenco Logistics Services, he redesigned the receiving process, which reduced product damage in house and in transit, resulting in hundreds of thousand of dollars in savings.
"In PAID's new facility, we're now able to establish processes that take advantage of the principles of lean manufacturing and continuous improvement to better serve our clients and their customers," Breault stated.
New High-Tech Facility in Westborough, Mass.
PAID Inc. consolidated its Boston and Worcester facilities into a newly constructed facility in Westborough and upgraded its shipping, warehouse and inventory management system to streamline picking and packing, shipping and product control. Advantages of the new facility include:
As Rotman explains, "Our new facility has taken our fulfillment capabilities and efficiencies to the next level. With client managers, customer service and warehouse staff all under one roof, strategic planning and information sharing happens face-to-face in real time. Reporting, order and processing data are disseminated digitally increasing accuracy and efficiency. The larger space will accommodate significant growth of our client roster. Increased efficiencies ensure that we continue to provide the highest level of care and precision for every client -- all the while maintaining competitive pricing."
Superior Shipping Technology and Improved Processes
PAID's automated efficiencies and real-time monitoring offer clients substantial benefits that translate to increased sales and profits.
