Frankford Umbrellas Intranet Portal

Frankford Umbrellas Intranet Portal


In a small town outside of Philadelphia, MCG Strategic, a brand creative technology business, was approached by a local manufacturing company–Frankford Umbrellas, facing a bottleneck in their operations. The manufacturer was entangled in a web of manual processes where customers and sales reps were forced to make phone calls or send emails to check inventory levels or order statuses. This old-school method was not only time-consuming but also led to missed sales opportunities, especially after working hours. The lack of real-time access to inventory and order status was a hurdle too high for a modern-day business to leap over each day.


The manual process was more than just a minor inconvenience. It was a gaping hole in the operational efficiency of the company, with sales reps and customers alike having to jump through hoops to get the information they needed. The lack of an efficient, user-friendly digital platform was costing the company significantly in terms of both time and potential sales. The tedious back-and-forths over phone or email were delaying sales confirmations, sometimes even resulting in lost sales. This operational ordeal was crying out for a digital intervention to streamline the process, make life easier for sales reps, and provide a better service to customers.
