Distribution Fulfillment

Getting marketing materials and inventory to your commercial partners is one of the most critical components of your business. As such, it’s a mistake to carry out those activities with anything less than an expert team and all that current technology has to offer. Distribution fulfillment deserves your closest attention, and Spectra is ready to join your company with third-party services to make you the reliable, effective provider that your B2B customers need.

Our distribution fulfillment system is mature and has been perfected over many years of working with companies in highly demanding markets, including healthcare. We handle the entire fulfillment cycle, from inventory ordering through to shipment, plus the efficient and satisfactory processing of returns and other post-delivery inquiries. Using a powerful partner like Spectra for your distribution fulfillment not only takes pressure off your team, but opens up exciting opportunities for you to offer greater and more profitable services to more customers.

Distribution fulfillment in the modern era is about much more than keeping inventory in stock and sending it to the correct addresses upon order. Features such as online portals, personalized usernames and passwords for storefronts, and customized product catalogs can make your business a highly sought-after source for B2B materials of all kinds. While extremely effective, these systems are incredibly complex and require the support of digital technologies that can handle security, privacy, and the many other factors that go along with serving customers in this way.

Storefronts, as the customer-facing elements of your distribution fulfillment strategy, must be easy to use, navigate, and understand–after all, most of the folks using your storefronts are accustomed to shopping with popular online retailers and expect to find the same type of customer experience when they interact with you. Whether this expectation is beside the point; if your web portal experience does not deliver for them quickly and consistently, they are likely to move on to another option.

Spectra’s distribution fulfillment service includes storefronts with full customization, capable of serving your B2B customers with all the features they expect to find. By implementing personalized access through unique usernames and passwords, you can limit the items visible to customers based on their needs and access levels. You can offer customers all the services they need to view, order, and return your materials with the level of convenience that they are looking for.

Working with Spectra for distribution fulfillment doesn’t simply solve a problem for your company. It puts you in the lead as you compete to become the provider of choice for major B2B customers around the country and the world. The more versatility, power, and reliability you can offer to your customers, the more business you will do and the more quickly your organization will grow.

As you add the power of Spectra’s data driven programs to your distribution fulfillment, rest assured that the basics are taken care of as well. Each shipment that leaves our fulfillment center on its way to your customer has been expertly packed, checked multiple times via barcode scan to confirm accuracy, and logged into our powerful inventory management system for future analytics to make your services even more efficient.
