How we do it
I need it yesterday
Markets change quickly, maximise your return…
Markets change quickly, to maximise your return you need a partner to respond just a quickly.
We cover the entire process from creative to installation.
This means we can deliver projects in hours not days so you can maximise on opportunities as soon as they appear rather than waiting for your supply chain to catch up.
Exploit new opportunities…
By working with Tessell8 our clients are able to exploit opportunities they would otherwise miss.
We work super fast so you can make the most of opportunities and increase margin making every penny count.
Whether you need to fill out that training classroom or promote a product when the weather changes, Tessell8 can react so you make out.
Last minute national POP roll out…
Our client had an excess of stock and a deadline within which to sell it.
We worked together on a POP campaign to promote the product over the coming weekend.
- Briefed on Tuesday.
- Photo shoot and creative on Wednesday.
- Approval Wednesday night.
- Production and dispatch Thursday.
- In stores across the clients entire estate Friday, ready for the weekend.
Over the years we have pulled some crazy “rabbits” out of some crazy “hats”… here are just a few:
- Updating a national network of displays from brief through creative and deployment in less than 3 hours.
- Three pallets of training material for a European client manufactured and shipped over a weekend.
- Etched glass awards for event in 2 days.
- Allergen compliant web plug in running live from product data base in a weekend.
- Full web store environment for global brand across 14 languages including back office integration in three days.
- Video for high street brand regional conference with music and subtitles for four languages overnight.
Opportunities don’t keep to working hours…..
….and neither do we.
We work around you, and the hours that work for you, to get things done so you can focus on everything else. Whatever we can do to make the most of that opportunity.
With a global partner base we can often produce while you sleep.
I don't have a budget
Sometimes the budget just isn’t there…
Sometimes you need it done but the budget just isn’t there.
We understand that you can’t just throw money at things, and sometimes you just need to test the waters without taking too much risk.
we can produce material for just one store or one course.
You don’t need to jump in feet first just to trial things.
We are an ultra low overhead business…
Apparently an U.L.O.B is actually a thing, and apparently we are one, an ultra low overhead business.
Whats more, we leverage through exclusive partners allowing us some exceptionally low costs.
In addition we understand the need to ‘just try it out’ without taking a second mortgage, we are here to support you every step of the way.
From creative and layout through to digital or print delivery we can help you explore new markets without breaking the bank.
A three minute professional event video…. overnight!
One of our global clients required a movie to cover a team event for their annual Regional conference.
The challenge? We needed to shoot the footage at 3pm and deliver the finished film at 10am the following morning!
In addition to this small challenge the budget was exceptionally limited. We worked through the night bringing in a number of resources and weeks of preparatory work to deliver the video work in time for the presentation.
To add to the fun, none of the interviewees ended up speaking any English, so we had to translate through the night too!
Was it any good? Take a look and see for yourself!
We work as if we are part of your business…
Barriers stop things happening so we try and get rid of as many as we can.
We are there to understand and support you and your goals.
If you need something done super cheap but don’t want to sacrifice on quality or speed we have you covered.
We don’t want the credit, we are just here to make you look good.
Projects delivered in half the time…
What difference would it make if you could deliver projects in half the time and half the cost of some other channels?*
We know how far every penny has to go, and we know that time scales are getting shorter as you try and monopolise on every opportunity. We are able to deliver projects quicker and cheaper for many of our clients that their previous supply chain.
For our long term clients we will often collaborate on new concepts and deliver projects free of charge to help test new verticals or markets.
*we can illustrate this with real stories of real challenges delivered for real customers…. really.
I just need it to work
Things are rarely as simple as we would like…
At Tessell8, we fully understand this.
We look to automate as much as we possibly can to streamline the process and speed up delivery.
By doing so the day to day, becomes, well…. day to day.
So we work together on all the other stuff that actually takes your business where you want it to go. It’s also a LOT more fun.
The brands you see every day…
Some of the brands you see every day rely on Tessell8 to deliver material across countries, continents or globally every day of the week.
They don’t worry about shipping time or costs, file access or design adjustments and, frankly, they don’t have the time.
They just focus on their business secure in the knowledge that if Tessell8 needs to do anything, it will just happen.
…..A ‘forgettable’ solution…..
….Tessell8 were still able to ensure orders were shipped and delivered on time.
We did this by managing the changing shape of things on a daily basis. We flew staff to our production facilities (at no extra cost) and were on hand at all times of the day (and sometimes through the night) to support the client.
Our client service and development teams worked non stop with the client to support them through this period, help them debug their system and, most importantly, get the product where it needed to be.
Our client was able to simply forget about our part of the process and focus on their other challenges.
Facilities around the world…
We work through facilities around the world, from Calgary to China, from Johannesburg to Japan.
Utilising a range of different channels, orders for printed material are seamlessly posted out to the production teams around the world in real time.
The entire process is completely automated meaning that your orders are being produced within seconds of being placed.
Shipping data is then posted back via the same servers to update your customers.
We put both ends of the supply chain next to each other in a secure and simple system so you can just sit back and watch.
A perfect storm of challenges…
Our client was faced with a perfect storm of challenges:
- The launch of their flagship publication.
- The launch of a new global ordering system for digital and printed publications.
- The transition from a single “print for stock” warehouse to a global print on demand model.
- All at the same time!
Using InterLock, our own back office software, we were able to automate all the order handling through to our production teams.
Then, the order volume exceeded expectations ten fold and when the clients shipping system experienced “technical difficulties”…. cont’
I don't have the time
We take all the pieces and then make them fit…
Our goal in life is to take all the pieces and make them all fit…
Our clients deliver around the world through multiple systems, in multiple currencies to multiple locations through multiple channels and usually from multiple formats!
We bring it all together and tailor a process and integration that takes out all the ‘kinks’ and then keeps it smooth.
We take all the different pieces and we make everything fit, seamlessly…
We work as an integral part of your business…
We work with integrity and build trust so we can really add value to your business.
So many of our clients, literally, treat us as employees of their own company.
We build things together collaboratively so, when the pressure is on, it just works.
We love you guys because whenever we ask you to do something we forget about it, we just know its going to happen
Volatile exchange rate? NO PROBLEM…
Where rates are volatile the cost of the material can change in the time it takes to pay the invoice, sometimes wiping out your precious margin.
Tessell8 customers know that the cost on the day of delivery is the cost they pay when the invoice is due, giving our clients a predictable cost and access to more markets.
Tessell8 is registered for local taxes in different countries so that our clients don’t have to handle this extra layer of complexity unless it is beneficial to do so.
In these cases we have local relationships with accounting firms in country to facilitate this and keep it smooth.
Very few of our customers work a “regular day”…
Very few of our customers work a “regular day” or have time for long winded processes or paperwork.
Most of them need to ‘shoot from the hip’ most of the time and pick up the pieces later.
Our goal is that your customer gets exactly what they need when they need it (or sooner), we can work out all the ‘stuff’ later.
We are here to make your life easy, regardless of what shape things are, Tessell8 will take all the pieces and make them fit.
Our systems are totally automated…
Tessell8’s systems are totally automated and streamlined with processes enabling material to be produced around the globe. We achieve this with minimum human intervention.
Each iteration is totally unique to each customer reflecting their unique individual needs and requirements.
Because everything is automated things happen much quicker and we spend our time working together to build, not maintain.
