No matter the type of manufacturer, the manufacturing industry is highly competitive and continuously evolving. Not only can Strän offer the most current and innovative product, we can prepare products for all different types of campaigns and events. Additionally, we have the flexibility to offer an extensive variety of sizes and colors for product, apparel and uniforms. Some of the ways we can support your business through the use of branded merchandise include uniforms, event giveaways, staff training, trade shows, client meetings, customer appreciation, wholesaler/reseller marketing materials.
Additionally, Strän’s well established relationship to a variety of the top vendors within the promotional product industry grants Strän access to eco-friendly and fully sustainable product, union certified product, american-made product, the highest valued and highest end items available at the best prices, and the latest trends and newest items in the market.
Strän goes beyond the products, however, and can offer some of the best and most creative marketing services to foster the one-to-one connection between your wholesalers/resellers/end-users and your brand. Our “soups to nuts” handling starts at the beginning with our creative thinking, followed by production and the manufacturing all the way to distribution. Let us bring your brand to your customers while ensuring speed to market and brand consistency. Our services include compliance, co-branding/combined co-branding and personalization, customization, kitting, inventory management, printed data sheets/brochures/mailings/sales materials, pre-trade show direct mail, pre- trade show room drops, event set-up, post- trade show mailers and premium item follow up, and automated group buying.
Through both our products and services, it is our goal to continually improve your outreach and promotional success while serving to maintain brand consistency and connection. One of our most powerful tools for ensuring the success of your brand is with our cutting edge technology. We are a leader within our industry for the advanced e-Company platforms and reporting systems we can provide. We can host three types of sites on one portal which allows manufacturing companies the option to have not only a distributer website, but also a direct-to-consumer site and an employee uniform site if needed. Our online platforms and inventory management strengths include customized look and feel, ability to carry out same-day shipments, multiple billing and paying options, highly developed, customizable reporting systems, ability to allocate costs to different departments, tracking of each department’s spending, and ROI measurement for determining customer purchasing behavior. These platforms can be built for either a front facing eCommerce solution, for internal marketing/partner/wholesaler usage; or, for both in a single solution.
When working with an industry that requires high regulation and compliance, manufacturing companies can find satisfaction and reliability in Strän’s several efforts to build compliant systems and processes while also providing impressive flexibility. We are committed to conducting business affairs in a socially responsible and ethical manner consistent with all applicable national and local legal requirements. For instance, our compliant measures include placing spending limits (which can be based on user login, cost center or final recipient), PCI compliant technology, strict quality control standards with top rated suppliers in the industry, assurance that suppliers have received certification from third party quality certification alliance, and assurance that suppliers are conforming to fair labor association standards.
The final step in assuring the one-to-one connection between your brand and customer is through fulfillment and distribution. Strän’s centralized platform for providing high quality product and service allows us to work with the different needs of your several distribution channels. In addition to offering on-demand ordering and same day deliveries, we can ship directly to customers with retail ready packaging and tracking information.
