We Are Gung-Ho!

The Challenge

Today, digital downloads and SaaS cloud computing represent the lion’s share of software distribution. However, many end users still want physical manuals and discs and are even willing to pay extra for them! But it is a hassle and expensive for software publishers to deal with physical product manufacturing, inventory management, order processing, and fulfillment.

So the challenge is:
How does a software publisher cost-effectively provide manuals and discs to their customers?

The Solution: Physical River

Physical River is Gung-Ho’s on demand software publishing service. The automated service enables software publishers to use Gung-Ho’s global manufacturing and fulfillment network to produce physical copies of their software and documentation and ship them directly to customers on an as needed basis.

The Physical River global service has a manufacturing capacity of more than 100 million printed pages, CDs, and DVDs per month and it is rapidly scalable.

With Physical River, we provide software publishers with an efficient, low-risk method for cost-effectively delivering physical products on a global basis. And for software publishers that do not want to be involved, we will assume the risk and total management of the entire process – from Web order through product fulfillment – providing publishers with a risk-free, hassle-free revenue stream.
