Sourcing, storing, and shipping company swag and branded merchandise is a time consuming and expensive process.
Luckily, with a swag management platform, these tasks can be outsourced and automated to save time and money.
What is a Swag Management Platform?
A swag management platform refers to swag procurement, customization, and fulfillment services – along with cloud-based software that simplifies the process of managing swag. Key swag management software features include order tracking and real-time inventory management.
A swag management platform is also known as a branded merchandise management platform, company store, or employee swag store.

When it Comes to Company Swag, Brand Consistency is Key
A swag management platform helps protect the integrity of your brand identity while streamlining the process of procuring, managing, and distributing custom corporate swag.
Utilizing a single centralized platform for swag procurement and management ensures brand consistency. By using the services of one vendor, you can better control how your logo and other brand assets are used. Working with a dedicated account representative also helps ensure that each piece of swag sent out to an employee, sales lead, or client meets your requirements and specifications.
Corporate branding should be consistent across all channels. That’s why your swag management platform should always feature an end user interface (aka company swag store or employee swag store) that has been customized to your brand and marketing requirements. A user interface that looks and feels like a real brand e-commerce store encourages use and increases discoverability. For B2C brands, a well-designed swag store also becomes valuable online real estate.
Cohesive Branding Requires Fresh Swag – Not Outdated Logo Items
A cohesive visual identity is important for any business. Company swag should always feature your brand’s most current logo and brand identity elements. Branded company apparel especially should be current in style and decorated with your brand’s most current logo, fonts, and colors. Custom shirt designs should always support brand messaging.
A swag management platform that offers on demand printing and/or a hybrid inventory system helps your business maintain brand cohesion and save money. Instead of printing and storing lots of swag on site that can quickly become outdated after a brand refresh or rebrand, your business can reduce inventory management costs with a swag management platform.
