Challenge

Techstars, a company that helps accelerate the growth of start up businesses, was outgrowing its ability to put together and deliver welcome kits to businesses entering their accelerator programs. Techstars asked Ideation to design, create, store, kit, and ship out full custom kits all over the world.

Solution

Ideation is equipped with a fully integrated fulfillment program that tracks inventory in and out. Techstars had us create shirts, hoodies, stickers, Moleskine® journals, pens, books, and even customized boxes. After each component was produced, Ideation created an efficient “pick and pull” environment in our warehouse to accurately kit and ship. We use inventory control procedures to accurately manage incoming and outgoing inventory so that reordering is simple and accurate.

Outcome

Well, Andy says it best…

“Techstars is a rapidly growing company with accelerator programs all over the world. We looked for someone to warehouse, kit, and fulfill large orders of high quality branded merchandise to go out to multiple locations before each program starts. Ideation does a superb job of doing this. The packages are consistently accurate and on time, and are done so in a way that presents our brand well. The fulfillment relationship with Ideation has removed so much stress and increased our bandwidth ten fold.” -Andy A, Techstars
