Jetline Invests More Than $1.5 Million for Future Growth
Jetline, the supplier based in Gaffney, S.C., recently announced that its investment into improving operational efficiency and increasing business scalability has now exceeded $1.5 million. The investments were made as part of the company's business operations and information technology transformation program, launched in 2013.
At the center of this transformation has been the adoption of a new cloud based ERP solution that has revolutionized the way the company does business. "We went live on our new software platform at the beginning of the year, and the transition has been relatively seamless for our customers," explained Eric Levin, CEO of Jetline. "The new system has already had a profound impact on our productivity, and we are just scratching the surface in terms of capabilities."
In addition to the company's software investment, Jetline has increased its production capacity by over 50 percent. Levin added, "We made the strategic decision to invest in both increased capacity as well as new decoration and pre-press processes. While adding excess machine capacity is critical to accommodate our short lead-time model, it's imperative that we continue to invest in new decoration processes and pre-press techniques that will provide our customers (and their customers) a constantly improving 'out-of-box' experience."
The third leg of Jetline’s transformation program is focused on packaging and fulfillment. "Packaging and fulfillment have not been a strong suit in many promo segments," Levin said. "We see this area as a way that we can help to reinforce the end-user’s purchasing decision. The end-user who has a positive buying experience is more likely to place another order with the distributor and more likely to make another promo purchase in general. We know that we will benefit from some portion of the additionally accrued orders. It’s just smart business."
