National Retail Eyewear Firm Signs Marketing Production Contract with SupplyLogic
DULUTH, GA and HAUPPAUGE, NY—March 10, 2015—SupplyLogic, a privately held brand delivery firm, has signed a managed services partnership with GA-based National Vision (NVI), one of the nation’s largest optical retail providers. The contract places a substantial portion of NVI’s marketing production spending over four years directly under SupplyLogic’s management to support local retail teams with brand graphics.
The deal will also provide NVI with a more-focused retail operation, freed from managing indirect supply orders, and more consistent customer brand experiences, while providing real-time performance analytics to NVI marketing executives.
"We are excited to be moving forward with SupplyLogic," Bruce Steffey, president and COO said. "It’s the type of partnership we seek, that becomes a contributor to aiding us in the delivery of our corporate mission, which is to help people, by making quality eye care and eyewear more affordable and accessible," he concluded.
Kevin Sherlock, founder and CEO, SupplyLogic, also noted, "As NVI expands its retail footprint, SupplyLogic stands right beside them, making sure their business scales properly to support deep penetration of each territory they serve. Our flawless execution of their growth strategy will help take NVI to the next level of brand management."
After a successful evaluation, SupplyLogic is building a custom marketing execution solution for NVI. It includes two full-time subject matter experts who will work out of the Duluth headquarters, backed up by a national team of shared services, software experts, business analysts and pre-certified suppliers. It will also include a single unified e-commerce Web portal allowing NVI retail employees to order operational documents and collateral, and receive them better, faster and at lower-cost. The SupplyLogic experts will recommend further innovations through deep visibility into operational data.
