While businesses tend to devote much of their attention towards clients, it is important to remember another group that plays a significant role in strengthening the organization. That group is vendors.
At CRT, the past few years have been monumental for us. Between restructuring, organizing and planning, it has been a struggle to stay on top of things. Luckily, the following companies have always been there for us.
Print Management USA
Dave at Print Management USA is all too familiar with the last minute print jobs we send him. Whether it is requesting orders to be shipped overnight to a trade show, expedited to our office, or requesting 20 different quotes, he has been handling our promotional printing needs for the last 5 plus years. Dave always comes through, not only with the best-looking materials awaiting us, but also the best prices.
Jeff at Jamy Labels laughs each time he answers the phone and hears me say hello. I don’t even need to tell him who I am. He knows I am calling to find out how I can nudge our order, or at least part of it, out quicker because we unexpectedly came up short. While we sometimes haven’t planned correctly, he has consistently picked up our slack and been able to meet our product labeling needs.
Business Consulting Group
Then there is Robbie at Business Consulting Group, who basically has been working miracles. He has worked tirelessly, rallying us all together and getting us on the same page. Thanks to him, a 25 year old company that never had any kind of budget, now has more direction that ever before.
Now that you’ve read what our vendors have helped us accomplish, what are your thoughts? Let us know below how your vendors have helped strengthened your business.
