  6. Competitiveness Our Philosophy PFSweb is an outsourcing solutions design firm with an extensive offering of world-class logistics, fulfillment, customer care and technology infrastructure that can be leveraged to create unique, client-specific business solutions. Our philosophy is not to fit your business model into our pre-existing infrastructure, but rather to develop our infrastructure around your unique needs. We are flexible, scalable, and adaptable so we can keep pace with your ever-changing needs, whether you are adding new sales channels, marketing initiatives, vendor managed inventory (VMI) programs or special projects. We realize that no two clients face the exact same challenges, and for that reason, we are always extending our technology and operations capabilities based directly on client needs. Our philosophy is that there is absolutely no favorable argument for you to consider outsourcing with PFSweb unless we can execute at a greater performance level than what you could achieve in-house or through an alternative partner.
