Online Catalogue

In today’s climate, where budgets and resources are squeezed, there is a greater focus on efficiency and using resources most effectively. At the same time, clients need to deliver more tailored campaigns and maintain brand consistency.

This is a particular challenge for organisations with teams in widely dispersed locations and different levels of familiarity with marketing materials. An online catalogue provides a simple web interface for ordering print and other marketing materials in a streamlined and cost-effective way.

A fast, easy-to-use, cost-effective solution, the TSO Online Catalogue makes life easier for everyone.

Our partnership approach with clients led us to design a system that makes it really simple to order literature, stationery and promotional materials. Designed around business requirements, this flexible, online interface fully integrates with our existing systems and can share order details directly with clients’ systems, if required.

Teams can order materials directly, which saves time by simplifying the ordering process and distributing materials to widely dispersed locations. Centrally managed, this user-friendly tool is available 24/7 and allows teams to work seamlessly – even across time zones. It provides helpful support mechanisms, online help, simple repeat purchasing and organised workflow – right down to order history and tracking order progress. What’s more, the robust approval and workflow processes provide clients with confidence in quality, on-brand results.

Features

Organise

Print management efficiencies are gained from warehousing, print on demand and centralised procurement. Cataloguing the materials and specifications that users can order leads to time and cost efficiencies. The interface offers a number of flexible payment options, by invoice or credit card, to suit client business practices.

Clients have control right down to tracking workflow status for each job, making this challenging task straightforward even for those with no experience in print buying.

Adapt

This online tool is readily client branded and marketing materials can be organised into a user friendly structure to complement client work practices, helping teams intuitively find the materials they need.

Templates allow controlled flexibility, so marketing teams can readily adapt materials, while other users tailor materials within stricter guidelines, for instance adding branch addresses.

Customisable materials available include:

  • Business cards
  • Communication slips
  • Leaflets and brochures.

Jobs such as resizing and locating related materials are made easy, and reordering repeat materials is simple using order history.

Share

Access rights can be managed centrally, saving time. The system is designed to reduce effort and pre-empts key client information so teams spend their time editing rather than typing updates. Our intuitive system needs little training and online help is provided.

Items can be flagged whether for a seasonal campaign or to promote best practice to get the most out of communication  opportunities.

This system helps to keep work on track prompting each approval or delivery stage.
