Encompass is measured on such indicators as same day shipments, fill rates, order accuracy, returns processing and more.

“Encompass monitors and reports on all program activity from hourly warehouse picks to calls taken by customer service representatives,” said Hurley. “We are completely transparent with our clients so they can rest assured that their customers are being well served after the sale. Our goal is to provide exceptional service that helps encourage repeat sales.”

Lasko Director of Customer Experience Inger Heller said Encompass has so far achieved exemplary KPIs, resulting in the decision to now initiate 4PL programs for BlueDri and B-Air.

“Over the past year Encompass has shown they are more than capable of providing the same strong parts support to BlueDri and B-Air customers as they have shown with Lasko.”

B-Air and BlueDri are part of the commercial division of Lasko, a proud American company manufacturing products in the U.S. for the past 115 years.  B-Air and BlueDri products are designed for water damage restoration, fire damage remediation and large area air qualityLasko started as a small shop in Philadelphia in 1906 and now distributes innovative products worldwide.
