How it works
The homepage can be configured to show featured items, recent updates, most popular items, or your POS planning calendar. It is configured to show current pre-orders and status; pre-order is designed to forecast demand. The ordering window can be open for any amount of time. After a user places an order, it can be modified until a determined date. When a pre-order closes, items can be made available as POS-on-demand whenever you're ready to make it available.
Emerge on demand provides incentives for order pre-planning: higher order quantities mean lower costs. Emerge allows for easy mix and match quantity discounts on items that use a common substrate and dieline. If a user orders 1000 of a single design of a shelf talker, for instance, they qualify for and receive the 1000 quantity price. But, if the user continues shopping and purchases 1000 each of 4 more designs of shelf talkers site wide, they qualify for the 5,000 quantity discount, which is applied to all their shelf talkers. The process if fully transparent; user actually see savings while ordering.
Emerge's CMS system is flexible and designed to facilitate multiple vendors providing multiple types of products, processes, and services. Clients can manage multiple warehouses, different types of POS companies, or book and track sampling agency events through the site.
