From customised t-shirts to lunch boxes, we all have seen a list of gifts that are given to people, year on year during festivals, milestones, and other important occasions. It becomes one of the most talked about things in an organisation. You get to see smiles on people's faces.
However, the people involved in the process know what goes behind making this happen. The preparation starts weeks before the event.
Challenges in the conventional gifting process
It starts with identifying the gift. How difficult is it to find a gift that will be liked by your workforce of 1000+ people? We know it's a tough choice to make. And this is just the beginning. The HR or Administration teams are supposed to find the right vendor who gives the desired product within the budget. This process of finalising the vendor and the product requires endless amount of calls and emails over a couple of weeks.
We understand that the one-gift-for-all approach does not work in case of the diverse audience. We provide an extensive catalogue of 600+ products. You can pick the products that fit your budget. Employees can take their pick.
The next biggest problem is customising or personalising the product. The teams are made to take the names of each person, sizes in case of apparel and other details, if any. And then communicate these details to the vendors. There is a possibility of errors due to the manual process.
This is followed by packing, shipping and delivery. If your recipients are working from remote locations, you need to spend time checking their delivery address and ensure that gifts are shipped to the right location. And wait, it's not over yet. You are yet to coordinate for delivery status. The work is done only when the gifts reach each recipient. And, this cycle is repeated year on year.
But guess what? The process can be changed with Celebration, our automated gifting platform. It will bring a loads of benefits for you.
Advantages of Celebration
1. No lengthy process
As we saw, the process to deliver gifts is manual and consumes a lot of time of Admin or HR teams. The Celebration module can reduce the effort required by at least 50%. It is just a simple four-step process.
- Admin/HR teams shortlist the products from the catalogue of 600+ products
- PrintStop creates a gifting portal with the shortlisted products
- Recipients log into the portal, choose their gift, personalise it and share shipping address
- PrintStop ships the orders
With Celebration, the HR or Admin teams simply have to shortlist the products. The rest of the process is handled by PrintStop.
2. Works for physical as well as virtual events
With the accelerated digitisation due to the pandemic, we are becoming familiar with virtual events. So, if you are hosting a virtual festival celebration or a corporate event, people can just access the portal and get their kit.
In case of physical events, we can deliver the gifts directly to the venue and you can personally handover them to each participant.
Not only is each gift personalised, but it is wrapped in your own customised wrapping paper. You can also send your message to the recipients.
3. Personalisation of products is made simple
Enough has been said about the benefits of personalisation. It allows the recipients to have an affinity for the product. It prevents them from regifting or discarding the product. They are likely to cherish it for the rest of their lives. But, the most challenging part about giving personalised gifts is collecting the details. Celebration eliminates that step and allows the recipients to do it themselves.
They just have to log in to the portal and add their details.
4. Power of choice
We understand that the one-gift-for-all approach does not work in case of the diverse audience. We provide an extensive catalogue of 600+ products. You can pick the products that fit your budget. Employees can choose the gift they like. Besides, knowing the fact that you considered their choice will make them feel valued.
5. Personal touch
Not only is each gift personalised, but it is wrapped in your own customised wrapping paper. You can also send your message to the recipients. It works wonders when you are sending gifts to people remotely by creating a personal touch through a digital medium.
With Celebration, the HR or Admin teams have to take an effort to shortlist the products. The rest of the process is handled by PrintStop.
We all know that the ultimate aim of the gifts is to bring a smile to the recipients face. And so, we bring you the perfect solution to make their smiles a little wider while the efforts you take are reduced considerably.
