PPAI’s mission is to be the voice and force to advance the promotional products industry, and the Association’s business services members play a critical role in that mission.
The promo industry’s business services providers support industry companies’ operations with a wide range of resources and capabilities. PPAI Media is spotlighting another of the valuable services they offer: Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. An ERP is a software system that helps you run your entire business, supporting workflow planning, web automation, human resources, accounting, inventory management and more.
Many of these companies will be on hand at The PPAI Expo 2024, which takes place January 15-18 in Las Vegas.
