Grammy®-Nominated Entertainers Select Webgistix’s Innovative Fulfillment Platform to Reduce Costs, Add Flexibility to Supply Chain

LAS VEGAS, NV — March 19, 2009 — Webgistix Corp., the leader in global e-commerce order fulfillment, today announced that Blue Man Group has outsourced order fulfillment and inventory management for its retail operations to Webgistix, whose SmartFill order-fulfillment platform provides a simple, scalable and reliable way for Blue Man Group to manage its stock of nearly 200 unique items sold through its chain of retail stores.

Blue Man Group is an international entertainment phenomenon with permanent shows running in New York, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and Universal Orlando. Retail locations are operated at each venue. To streamline its business processes and maximize efficiency, Blue Man Group has centralized the management of its retail supply chain and relies on Webgistix to restock all five locations on demand. Blue Man Group places orders via the web-based SmartFill platform, which automates order fulfillment from Webgistix warehouses in Nevada and New York.

“Webgistix is essential to our retail operations,” said Sean Slattery, Retail Manager for Blue Man Group Las Vegas. “Space is at a premium. In Las Vegas, for example, we have a theater at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. The resort needs to maximize its use of every square foot, so we don’t have unlimited storage space. By leveraging Webgistix, we can buy large quantities of product at favorable prices without worrying about storage. When we need to restock a store, Webgistix is fast and accurate, and SmartFill is one of the easiest software systems I’ve ever used.”

Webgistix SmartFill is a software as a service (SaaS) solution that requires no capital investment and helps cut operating costs substantially. SmartFill helps Blue Man Group run as lean as possible, which means not having to dedicate personnel to shipping.

“Webgistix is a great partner,” said Slattery. “Like us, they focus on innovation. And like us, they understand the importance of doing things the right way. I’ve visited the Webgistix facility near Las Vegas. It’s state of the art and it gives me great confidence. And the Webgistix people are knowledgeable, helpful and very responsive. They make it much easier for us to be successful.”

Joseph DiSorbo, President of Webgistix, added, “We take great pride in what we do. When an organization as renowned as Blue Man Group recognizes the strength of our technology and the value we bring to our customers, it means a lot. We are focused on helping our customers save money and operate more efficiently.”
