Operations

Operations

Managing operations in China is essential to growing your business. We have standardized this process and can manage all aspects of your day-to-day operations. P88 will assign you an experienced merchandiser, located at one of our hubs, to handle everything from order fulfillment and tracking to inventory management, testing, and on-going product maintenance. Our goal is to provide an efficient and low cost method that takes care of your operations, and allows you to get back to focusing on your core strengths.

Products Extensions

product extensions

Growth requires frequent product updates and line extensions. By leveraging our team of experts and factories, you can greatly accelerate your product development and keep ahead of the competition. Since we are diversified, you will be able to leverage our product knowledge base and manufacturing capabilities across multiple categories. We have also developed a strategic partnership with an industry leading design agency, Puzzle, based in Santa Monica and Sydney, Australia. Puzzle has worked with some of the most cutting edge brands in the consumer products industry. Together with P88, they give you all the tools you need to get product iterations to market quickly.

Sales Channel Development

Sales Channel Development

Through our retail partners and distributors, we can assist in selling your products. Working with chain stores in North America and Europe can be difficult. Moreover, many of them are resistant to purchasing from single item vendors. We have years of experience developing programs for Target, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Kohls, Costco, Sam’s Club, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, The Container Store, Kroger, Albertsons, Publix, Madewell, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, The Grommet, The Gap, Metro Stores, Aldi, Lidl, Carrefour, B&Q, Kingfisher, Canadian Tire, Bunnings, Woolworths, Starbucks, Costa Coffee, and more. Working with buyers can be difficult. If you’re unfamiliar with this part of the process, we’re happy to do it for you on a limited or long-term basis.

Freight & Logistical Support
