A meeting is scheduled with our customer marketing team
program type, scope, and the type of samples needed.
Vendor participants are contacted to review the details of the program as well as discussing raw material costs as they affect sample costs.
CMG uses GS1 to produce UPC and ITF numbers to be used
in creating the SKU numbers.
SKU's are set up as in-stock items, special order, or on-line purchases shipped direct to the customer.
Raw materials are ordered from the vendors and labels
are created and reviewed by vendors, CMG and marketing team.
Product is scheduled for production at CMG.
All items are added to the SAP for replenishment.
Production orders are created immediately upon receipt of orders from customers.
In addition, we offer a new web based ordering site available for customers to order sample materials.
Depending on the type of sample, raw materials are delivered to CMG or scheduled for pick-up by vendor truck.
Raw materials are sized for the appropriate sample being produced; wood, laminate, vinyl or carpeting.
