Labor Finders Selects WorkflowOne for Distribution of Branded Materials
Press release from the issuing company
DAYTON, Ohio, October 3, 2007 -- WorkflowOne, a leading North American provider of print, promotional products and supply chain services, today announced that Labor Finders International, Inc. selected the company to develop an e-commerce Web site through which it will provide more than $1 million worth of branded materials annually to Labor Finders' nearly 300 offices across the United States.
Labor Finders, established in 1975, is the oldest and largest privately held industrial labor staffing company in the country. It fills an average of 16,000 jobs each day for more than 200,000 customers in the manufacturing, construction, distribution and hospitality industries.
"By streamlining the order process, WorkflowOne is enabling us to provide even better service to our franchise owners," said Labor Finders president Jeffrey Burnett. "We've implemented faster ways to print items on demand and get them into owners' hands more quickly. Branch managers now can create high-quality, customized sales materials on the fly, in the quantities needed for their business size, right from their desktop."
To better serve its franchised and company-owned outlets throughout the country, Labor Finders will use a Web-based system developed by WorkflowOne to help optimize its supply chain and manage its brand-related expenditures on print and promotional products. The new e-commerce site offers a wide variety of materials required by offices to run their operation, including sales collateral, stationery, advertising specialties, office apparel for both men and women, and a variety of safety items, including videos, protective gear, rainwear, boots and first-aid kits. All items are branded with the Labor Finders logo, and print items can be customized by local offices to sharpen their marketing focus.
"We find that customers are often challenged to maintain their brand integrity and provide good service to decentralized operations during periods of rapid business growth," said Mike Zawalski, president and CEO of WorkflowOne. "By outsourcing to WorkflowOne, companies like Labor Finders have an efficient alternative for controlling their brand-related spend and ensuring strong support to local business owners."
