Specialist Display Products Case Study – Branded Products & Specialised Sourcing

The Client

Our client is a dynamic building product supply company and amongst one of the nation’s top leading providers in the industry. They specialise in a number of products including precast concrete panels, bricks, pavers, roofing tiles and timber products.

The Challenge

The Building Products Group consists of ten different brands that require specialist display products to present their products adequately instore and on the road. The speciality products needed include sample boards made from specialist acrylic to adhere to brick faces, custom-made brick carry boxes and specialist adhesive labels that are designed to replicate the colour, style, texture and size of the many natural tile, brick, block and paver products.

The Solution

CostSmart was approached by our client to assist with sourcing and procuring their specialist display products from local and international manufacturers, warehousing and managing the stock holdings and creating an e-commerce facility that provides an extremely complex drop-down menu. The drop-down menu created by CostSmart is a system never before experienced in our industry. The menu displays thousands of labels from the client’s extensive range.

The Outcome

Having a central location for our client to place orders, track orders and receive invoices as opposed to liaising with the dozens of suppliers needed to create the labels. We created efficiencies in order placement times, invoicing processes and actual product expenditure savings exceeding $40,000 per annum.
