Lenovo Renews Exclusive Parts Support Agreement with Encompass

Deal comprises parts for post-warranty repairs of popular Idea and Think computer brands

Lawrenceville, Ga., December 20, 2019Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of replacement parts and supply chain services for a diverse range of product brands, today announced it will continue distributing parts for Lenovo’s Idea and Think computer brands until at least 2022 under a recent contract extension.

In addition to parts supply, the three-year agreement also calls for Encompass to continue providing contact center support and hosting a customized ecommerce web portal to help customers quickly find Lenovo parts: lenovo.encompass.com. Encompass supplies end users, authorized service centers, retailers and third-party administrators with genuine Lenovo parts for out-of-warranty repairs; Lenovo retains management of in-warranty parts distribution.

Encompass was first tapped in 2015 to manage parts supply for non-warranty repairs of Lenovo Idea tablets, laptops and desktops. Based on the success of that program, Lenovo expanded the agreement in 2016 to include the Think brand.

“We are very gratified to have earned Lenovo’s confidence and trust to continue supporting their flagship brands,” said Eddie Cafferty, director of Encompass’ Computer Vertical Business Development.

Cafferty said Encompass’ performance on the Lenovo program is closely tracked by specific metrics the supplier must attain, such as order fill rates, same day shipping, on-time delivery and order accuracy. Encompass provides Lenovo regular comprehensive reporting on performance metrics, as well as data on inventory levels and customer transaction history.

Lenovo North America Parts Sales Director Rick Julien said Encompass has so far achieved its performance obligations and customer service responsibilities.

“Lenovo has been extremely pleased with Encompass and their support of both our consumer and commercial customers,” said Julien. “We understand how vital computing devices are to the everyday lives of users and are fully committed to standing behind our products after the sale. As such, it’s critical for us to have a partner that can be relied upon to represent our brand and ensure fast access to Lenovo Genuine Parts to keep their Lenovo products functioning properly.”

Avoiding Kitchen Fails During Holidays

We’ve all been had our share of kitchen fails during the worst times possible — when there’s a house full of people starved for that big holiday meal. While it may be harder to recover from a pack of dogs running off with your turkey (thanks Christmas Story), there are many steps you can take to reduce the chances of having to whip up a meal with ingredients from the closest convenience store. Here are a few:

Clean Oven Well in Advance of Holiday Cooking

If you’re one of the many people who hate even the thought of cleaning an oven and mostly only do it when moving, don’t start now! Malfunctions are likely to happen if an oven’s self-cleaning mode hasn’t been regularly activated.

A major cleaning should be done at least a couple of months before the holidays whether you’re using the self-cleaning function or regular spray cleaner. Cleaners can leave harsh residues that can take some time to dissipate.

For an easy, quick cleaning if time has run out, you could opt to just scrape off build up and then wipe down the racks and sides with a wet cloth. To help keep oven cleaning more manageable in the future, consider using heat resistant oven mats. They sit on the floor of the oven to catch food particles and can be cleaned or replaced as needed.

Dishwashers Need Love Too

Unless you want to spend hours washing dishes by hand, your dishwasher is going to be a life saver so show it some love (and minimize problems):

  1. Follow Detergent Directions – Overfilling the detergent dispenser doesn’t get dishes cleaner, and can damage the inner workings of the dishwasher.
  2. Discard Large Food Particles – Big chunks of food can clog jets, but…
  3. Don’t Clean Before Cleaning – Believe it or not, dishes don’t get “extra clean” when you scrub them to perfection before loading. Dishwasher detergent enzymes actually need a little (emphasis on “little”) residue to activate and work properly.
  4. Jump Start the Heat – Turn on hot water in the sink nearest the dishwasher to help get steaming water going when starting the cycle.

Get That Fridge Organized for Leftover Extravaganzas

Be sure to stock up on reusable plastic or glass (for the eco-conscious) containers ahead of time for inevitable leftovers. If you’re feeling generous and have a lot of food, use freezer bags to send leftovers home with guests.

For less hassle on the big day, clean out your refrigerator in the days before the big meal so it’s easier to store more. Just know that the more you have to store, the less air will flow through the fridge. Also, foods that could go in the freezer but you want ready access to should be placed in the rear of the fridge where the cold air duct is. Food that shouldn’t freeze can be stored closer to the door where air is warmer.

Ice, Ice Baby (couldn’t resist)

Ice is one of those things you’re always sending someone out to get more of. To keep the ice flowing and Uncle Roy happy, consider emptying out the ice compartment a few days ahead of your meal and refill with good, fresh ice. Ice that’s been stagnating in the freezer can easily pick up the taste of anything else stored there. Put the fresh ice into plastic bags to shield it from circulating air and store in the freezer.

Hopefully these tips will help, but when something does go wrong, try not to sweat it. A burnt turkey or shortage of ice cubes won’t ruin time you get to spend with family and friends!

Deal includes parts for popular electronics brands Denon, Marantz, Boston Acoustic

Lawrenceville, Ga., August 22, 2019Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of replacement parts and supply chain services for a diverse range of product brands, today announced it has implemented a comprehensive parts supply chain management program to support Sound United and its full complement of consumer electronics brands.

Under an agreement with Sound United – an industry leader in home theater and personal audio products – Encompass manages its entire parts supply chain, including parts forecasting, purchasing, warehousing, distribution and call center service. Encompass also serves as a master supplier to Sound United’s authorized service providers, self-maintaining retailers and other designated affiliates.

The agreement comprises parts support for all Sound United brands: Denon®, Marantz®, Polk Audio, Classé, Definitive Technology, Polk BOOM, HE OS® and Boston Acoustics®. Encompass previously served as an authorized parts distributor for Sound United and currently maintains special ecommerce portals for Denon and Marantz to streamline parts access.

The program will be supported through Encompass’ Florida, Georgia and Nevada facilities to expedite delivery throughout the U.S.

“Encompass has supplied parts for Sound United brands for many years,” said Encompass Senior Vice President of Business Development Joe Hurley. “We appreciate the opportunity to further leverage our experience to enhance parts availability and turnaround time. Our goal is to provide superior aftersales service to help reinforce consumer loyalty to Sound United products.”

Hurley said the program will be continually assessed through performance metrics co-developed with Sound United. Encompass will be measured on such indicators as same day shipments, fill rates, order accuracy, returns processing and more.

“Monitoring and reporting on KPIs [key performance indicators] is critical to instilling confidence in our clients that their programs are running smoothly, and customers are being well served,” said Hurley. “Encompass provides full visibility to our clients in real time so they know what’s happening at any stage.”

Encompass Hires Digital Marketing Director to Enhance and Expand Ecommerce Sales and SEM

Lawrenceville, Ga., April 30, 2019Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of Distribution, 3PL and 4PL solutions for a diverse range of finished goods and repair parts, today announced that Jayne Sutherst will join its IT team in the newly-established role of Digital Marketing Director.

In this position, Sutherst will be responsible for managing all aspects of Encompass’ digital presence, primarily its main ecommerce site encompass.com, client web portals, search engine optimization and online and social marketing.  She is tasked with enhancing the online experience and customer support for both B2B and B2C users.  Sutherst will be based at Encompass’ recently-opened distribution and administrative facility near Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Sutherst joins Encompass from MAPEI – a worldwide producer of adhesives, thinsets and sealants for buildings – where she served as digital marketing manager. Among her many accomplishments, she led the redesign and strategic planning of MAPEI’s flooring installation product website, which drove 1 million unique visitors to the site within eight months of launch.

Sutherst has 15 years of experience in web development, ecommerce and online marketing for both B2B and B2C audiences. She has worked in corporate retail and agency environments, beginning her career with American Express as a multi-media instructional designer manager.  Sutherst earned an MBA in Marketing and undergraduate degree in International Business from Nova Southeastern University.

“With her extensive background in web design and product sales, we are confident Jayne is the perfect fit to lead and strengthen our ecommerce initiatives,” said Encompass President and CEO Robert Coolidge.

He said Encompass’ tremendous growth in the Home Appliance space, along with the company’s spike in hosting co-branded manufacturer consumer ecommerce solutions, necessitated additional support within its technology department.  Plus, since Encompass offers one-on-one call center service and counter sales at its facilities, it needed to ensure consistency across all customer touchpoints, said Coolidge.

“It’s critical for us to deliver online resources for service dealers, distributors, manufacturers and consumers that align with our call in and walk in experiences.”

Coolidge said Encompass in past years mostly only served repair servicers, warranty companies, retailers and other businesses involved in aftersales product support.

“Through manufacturer partnerships and our own marketing efforts, we are serving more consumers – some who have used service professionals and some ‘do-it-yourselfers’ who prefer making repairs themselves. They have found that we often have complex parts they can’t get from traditional ecommerce sites.”

Coolidge also said that while Encompass maintains counters/will call at each of its distribution facilities in Georgia, Florida and Nevada, electronic ordering accounts for a growing portion of company sales.

“Ecommerce continues to complement our increasing brick and mortar presence in the U.S.,” he said. “With strategic locations, we can offer next or two-day ground shipping to most of the country, which typically meets the needs of both our business and consumer customers who prefer delivery service.”
