Company Store Features To Make Your  Program Excel

Not all online company stores are not created equally. On the surface, most company stores look similar, however when you start digging into the features and back-end, they are very different. To run a successful program, the back-end features you don’t see are just as important as what you do see. Many companies that dabble in company stores, rent software to build and host the store. The challenge they have is the store is not integrated into their accounting system. It is a very manual process to re-key orders, fulfill products and offer real-time reporting.It is impossible to offer on-demand decoration in this type of system.

iCoStore was designed to run company stores and we built our technology and features to efficiently handle thousands of individual orders. We track every piece throughout the production process. All items are barcoded and efficiently flow through decoration, QC and shipping. We give you 24/7 access to all live reports in our Client Portal. Our on-demand solution is unmatched in the industry.

We have a team of programmers continuously building new store features and back end technology.

  • The custom store design and merchandise gives your employees a great selection of company swag
  • A dedicated account manager is your primary daily contact for all store and special order needs
  • The professional merchandising team keeps the products on your store up to date
  • Single sign on (SSO) makes managing users easy

Online Points

Buyers can accrue points in their online bank account on your company store. This is perfect for sales incentives, safety awards, anniversaries, birthdays, etc.

Unlimited Logos

Multiple logos can be a challenge for most stores. Adding logos typically means adding inventory. Our system allows for an unlimited number of logos to be loaded into your store. Promote all of your brands, or, allow distributors to co-brand with your logo. We have programs with over 100 logo choices and hundreds of styles and brands—with zero inventory!

Personalization
