Propago is a comprehensive system for managing orders and inventory throughout the entire lifecycle. Propago’s warehouse management features include all the normal capabilities such as product receiving, storage, warehouse control, picking, retrieval and issuing of goods. In addition to these features, Propago also offers ‘receive, pick, pack & ship’; serialization and lot tracking; a high volume fulfillment engine and RMA management.
Propago streamlines and coordinates all aspects of operations, including manufacturing, procurement, order and inventory management, kitting, pick and pack, and distribution. The system is built to handle any kind of product, regardless of where it's produced or shipped from. Capabilities include production management, procurement management, inventory optimization, demand forecasting and drop shipping automation.
Propago is a very good platform for Marketing Management, from a central base. Particularly if you have a franchise situation. It limits very well, so you don't have a bunch of mavericks messing with your brand. If you push the system to it's limits, Propago can help you control things from message to warehousing and supply logistics. I have four years of work with this system with a couple dozen long term clients.
-You can really get fine tunned control if you need it.
-Flexibility is not an obstacle and the support people will go out of their way to make your vision happen - particularly in the world of functionality.
-Integration with outside systems at the drop of a hat. Again, this is a strength of the support people.
-You really have to commit yourself and your organization so this platform works. If you go half way, your people will have to juggle multiple systems for what is basically the same thing. You don't want two systems, you want to grow with one.
-One of the Pro's was Integration. If you find another system that will support your marketing effort in a completely new way- ask the support people at Propago- they probably have already had experience with a similar system or product.
The storefront is very intuitive versus many other marketing resource management platforms. Help Desk inquiries from users who experience issues navigating the storefront and placing their orders are very low. One of our greatest challenges, albeit a good one, is getting our staff and clients to uncover and embrace the depth of information and reporting available to analyze product usage and trends to make good business decisions. We are constantly challenging our internal processes and streamlining "the way it has always been done" with the tools we have available. As a manufacturer, the comprehensive Production module allows us to easily facilitate and manage production workflow from receipt of an order through shipment. This is one aspect that separates this software from many other solutions in the market that are more like a Hollywood set; a pretty picture in front, but just a few two-by-fours holding it up in the back. A stellar software for the management of tangible marketing materials, having some form of digital campaign management capability, even a basic solution, would really enhance the offering and open up a new universe of prospects for our sales team. Overall, software support has been very good. All submitted issues are acknowledged, and the majority are resolved quickly.
In my 30 years in this industry, focused on new technologies that differentiate, I have never seen a more effective and malleable solution. No two customers of ours are using this solution the same way as it is easily tailored to each of their unique needs. This solution is used by 6 of our top 10 revenue customers and all of those are profit leading accounts due to pricing driven by value recognized by the customers.
Very flexible and very intuitive. Requires little ramp time for training or launching new customers. Cloud based so there is no hardware investment and maintenance or upgrade expenses.
So flexible that many users believe it can do anything and since it has a simple shopping cart functionality everybody assumes it can be used for public consumer use when it is intended for b2b established group users.
As a legacy Printing Company we have been faced with a declining market, forcing us to diversify our revenue. Propago has been the tool to help transition our company into a technology driven, marketing materials distribution solutions provider. The recent additions of new clients have been rooted in this unique web based solution that has taken us out of the low-bid game and turned us into a truly unique partner that our former print competitors cant compete against.
The difference between Propago and other web based solutions we have tried is Propago is a full gamut solution facing both our client and our operation eliminating the need for integrating two tools. It is also incredibly intuitive and easy to use. The training curve was minimal for us and is minimal for our clients and anytime we need help, their team is quick to help us support our clients in a timely fashion.
Finally, all of this at an affordable price point makes it one of the easiest justifications in our business.
I have been providing Marketing Resource Management (MRM) solutions for clients for about 15 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed partnering with the Propago team; they have lived up to every expectation.
The platform, both UI and the Administration side are very intuitive. We recently launched with a new client with an extreme amount of business rules and exceptions. The platform handled every aspect very well. We anticipated a high volume of calls from the users upon launch, we received only one call.... with a simple question.... amazing.
Having gone through many new client program launches using other MRM platforms, I will have to say launching with Propago has been by far the best experience. The support team has been amazing and on top of each and every request. Most handled within an hour..... in the past I have had to get in queue and wait a day or two. The platform is very feature rich and easy for anyone to use. They make me look like a hero with my clients.
In order to operate at maximum efficiency, organizations need smarter ways to access, manage, and distribute marketing supplies. Propago is a management platform that offers a solution. In one package, businesses can find the tools for creating and managing online marketing storefronts, platform controls, web-to-print, supply chain, warehouse management, reporting, and digital asset management.
Developed to meet the needs of small and mid-size marketers, agencies, promotional/apparel providers, fulfillment providers, and commercial printers, Propago uses a cloud-based, subscription-pricing model to offer its tools with no hardware, installation, or IT resources required. All updates are pushed through the cloud, which means users don’t have to waste valuable time maintaining their marketing management software.
Propago enables corporations to manage orders and inventory. In addition to offering the traditional capabilities people have come to expect from marketing and warehouse management platforms— including product receiving, storage, warehouse control, picking, retrieval, and the issuing of goods— Propago offers high-level features, such as serialization and lot tracking, high volume fulfillment, and RMA management. Propago is a ‘receive, pick, pack & ship’ solution.
Businesses that use Propago benefit from streamlined operations. For example, Propago can be used for manufacturing, procurement, order and inventory management, kitting, pick and pack, and distribution. All orders, production, and inventory statuses are updated and published in real time.
Streamlined production, procurement, and inventory management features make it possible for businesses to handle a higher volume of orders, from basic business cards to complex marketing kits with customized products. Advanced features such as order consolidation, batch shipping, and production queues provide Propago users with peace of mind that their operations are always running at maximum efficiency.
With Propago, businesses can create their own online storefronts or portals. Propago’s storefronts are the ideal place to manage and distribute marketing products. Regardless of the physical product a business is distributing, Propago offers tools to make marketing products available to any authorized group of users.
Using Propago’s storefronts, you can personalize corporate creatives (such as brochures and flyers) with unique messages, special images, interactive maps, and QR codes. You can make these products available at lower price points, depending on the group being served. You can also use storefronts as a place to distribute promotional products and apparel. The experience of using an online storefront is similar to popular online shopping tools, such as Amazon.com and Buy.com.
Service providers benefit from Propago’s supply chain management software, which includes an operations dashboard. The app streamlines manufacturing, procurement, order and inventory management, kitting, pick and pack, and distribution operations.
Using real-time production data, you can make operations more efficient and minimize the human touch points in your order fulfillment processes. Using “buyer groups”, you even have the option to assign resources to be in charge of selected products, regardless of how many internal buyers are on your team or how many outside vendors you work with.
Businesses can use Propago to manage orders and inventory. The solution’s warehouse management features include traditional capabilities, such as product receiving, storage, warehouse control, picking, retrieval and issuing of goods, in addition to advanced features such as serialization and lot tracking, third-party logistics, and high volume order fulfillment.
Start the lifecycle by sending all purchase order (PO) information to Propago and configuring the solution to ensure products are in agreement with your POs. Any errors or shortages will be identified immediately. You can also use Propago’s methods to guide personnel through the pick and pack process, and streamline shipping through an integration with native carrier systems.
Propago’s reporting and analytics features allow users to see exactly what’s going on within their businesses. These same tools aid in the identification of errors and provide insights into any speed bumps or kinks that might be slowing down operations and order fulfillment.
In addition to its sophisticated standard reporting tools, which track critical areas of the storefront, you can also run ad-hoc reports with Propago. Customizable reports give you the ability to add or remove columns, summarize reports, and filter reports to suit your needs. When customizations are saved, Propago retains the settings for future reports and tracking alerts.
Propago integrates with most third-party applications, including intranets, ERP, CRM, inventory, procurement, vendor applications, and other proprietary systems. Propago supports batch flat files, XML, and web services. The company can link up systems using its API.
