Who we are:
Kramer-Smilko, Inc. has served the print sourcing and distribution market for more than 20 years. The software platform we have built, sold and supported now processes more than one billion dollars in annual sales for our customer base. We have a strong presence in health care, banking, finance and insurance providing very sophisticated e-commerce based supply chain management services. In addition to classic print management and distribution, we have integrated office supplies, print on demand, digital content management, one-to-one marketing, promotional products, 3rd party fulfillment and MRO inventory capabilities into our offerings. We continue to seek new relationships to enhance and expand these services under the brand name, Renaissance.
What is Renaissance?
From new product development to tailored programs of sales consulting, workflow analysis, software services and support, Kramer-Smilko continually strives to identify new ways that it can assist its customers in managing the supply chain more efficiently.
Building on its long history and strong foundations of forms management and distribution services, Kramer-Smilko has produced a wide range of capabilities that enable the company to provide its customers, and their customers as well, with unique solutions that address their specific needs. These services are a means to improve quality, reduce costs and build strategic alliances in an environment increasingly focused on containing costs.
The obvious focus for cost containment and reduction has been the purchased product. However, there are few inefficiencies that remain in the pricing of commodities. Value added solutions, products and services that help you realize savings beyond price, are the source of our competitive differentiation. Renaissance identifies, quantifies and delivers added value by doing the following:
|Performing needs assessments - we match your specific needs with the appropriate value added capabilities.|
|Develop total cost propositions - we analyze the workflow in your organization, comparing current costs with achievable savings.|
|Document value added solutions - we focus on your processes, expenditures and asset utilization and document the dollar impact on your bottom line.|
