How can RMI help you?
According to a study by Accenture, "U.S. Consumer Electronics Industry Faces a Projected $17 Billion Product Returns Bill This Year, Accenture Research Finds” Customers returning electronics products will cost U.S. consumer electronics retailers and manufacturers nearly $17 billion, an increase of 21 percent from 2007 to 2011. This creates a significant opportunity for companies to separate themselves from their competitors and cut costs by pro-actively reducing their returns. These high return rates can easily be seen as unsustainable to a company that does not have a returns plan in place, in an industry sector where competition is always growing and margins are razor thin. Thus, having a comprehensive returns plan can be an opportunity to separate yourself from competitors and become your advantage. Utilizing our suite of services, RMI can customize a pro-active returns plan that will prevent returns and streamline your existing returns process.
