As early adopters of the commonsku platform, Jodie Marc Lalonde and the team at Portage Promos joined commonsku in 2014 after struggling to find a platform that would help them become more efficient. As soon as they saw commonsku, the team was sold, and jumped right into the skummunity. Jodie commented, “The ability to have access to our entire process from anywhere is fantastic. As an owner, being able to see everything financially and production wise is great for forecasting and managing resources. We honestly could not do business without it, since 2014 our business has quadrupled in sales and profits.”

On the top of the Portage Promo teams wishlist was a program that was more than an interface, offering the ability to keep them organized while also offering a high level of innovation and support. “It keeps us super organized and we rarely miss orders because they no longer get buried in email. It not only keeps us organized but also helps us look professional in front of our clients with all our forms,” Jodie added, “Even people who resisted change saw the benefits of productivity and organization within just a few months on commonsku!”

Ultimately, Jodie and the Portage Promo team were inspired by a platform that offered more than just technology, but a culture of like-minded distributors looking to drive the industry forward.

“commonsku gives us an increased level of productivity, efficiency, and enthusiam for the work that we’re doing in the promotional products industry. At the end of the day, profits will increase. It makes thing easy and we could not do what we do without it…it is that good!”
