Using Cloud-Based Software To Scale Upwards
Picture this: You’re a corporate event coordinator, and you just arrived onsite at your annual company-wide event in the Bahamas, only to realize that you forgot to order the 500 T-shirts your CEO requested for the event’s giveaway item. Your event starts in three days, and you need this order—now. Is it possible? Can you find a vendor that can order the right shirts in this quantity with an imprint of your event logo and ship them internationally to your hotel before the event starts? It is!
dfine Branding regularly uses Trapp Technology’s cloud-hosted Intuit Quickbooks software to accurately place and track merchandising and other branding orders for our busiest clients, anytime, anywhere. As a full-service branding firm in Denver, Colorado, dfine Branding develops, designs and implements the full branding experience, including positioning, design, in-house print, web development, merchandising, communications and more.
Having Trapp Technology’s cloud-hosted Quickbooks software means we can place and track the status of a client’s product order from home on a Saturday or from a branding convention we’re attending in Las Vegas, knowing that by the time we return to the office, the ball is already rolling to get the product designed, ordered, produced, assembled, shipped and delivered by our client’s deadline.
Before we had cloud-based QuickBooks, our services were limited to the times when we were at our desks in the office. With many clients in fast-moving industries who are often traveling and conducting business on the go, that limited level of accessibility simply doesn’t work for us as a small business that serves busy clients on a global scale. dfine Branding’s collaborative and relationship-driven team of specialists combines years of experience to deliver premium results as we engage with passion and execute with pride to develop and transform our clients’ brands into industry leaders. We simply can’t do that without the ability to use our Quickbooks software to enter our clients’ estimates and invoices, and to send purchase orders to our factories whenever and wherever our clients need their products.
