Company creates webstores built on InkHead technology for National Guard Education Services Division and two other national companies, plans to expand offering to other qualified businesses.
InkHead Promotional Products is very proud to formally announce a new partnership with the Education Services Division of the National Guard. The purpose in this strategic alliance is to give members of the National Guard a greater opportunity to purchase promotional items and apparel online either by calling a toll free number or by using a Live Chat feature on their very own web site powered by InkHead technology.
This collaboration comes as a response to the feedback the National Guard has received over the years that the number of promotional products offered to Education Service Offices (ESOs) has been very limited. Starting in 2011, these offices were given access to InkHead’s full catalog, which contains over 15,000 items to choose from and is available online 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The intent behind the partnership is to provide the National Guard ESO in each state with the resources to order promotional items of their choice. After all, InkHead Promotional Products is one of the premier online providers in the world of promotional materials. Since the National Guard Online Store went live in last week, officers have been given over 15,000 items to choose from with the confidence that all decorating and branding guidelines are being adhered to through one source.
InkHead’s partnership with the National Guard ESO is the first in what they hope to be a number of new business relationships, all built around the same technology that powers the InkHead Promotional Products online catalog. In addition to the National Guard ESO, InkHead is in the process of building stores for two other national companies. Because the employees in the regional offices of these companies will have access to the same suppliers as InkHead, the promotional products they order for their individual locations will feature uniform branding, something that has posed a challenge to the companies before.
Needless to say, the leaders of InkHead Promotional Products are looking forward to the new direction the company has taken with online stores powered by InkHead. According to Jim Franklyn, InkHead’s vice president of sales and marketing, InkHead is “very excited about the opportunity to work with the National Guard as well as the exposure the National Guard will receive on both national and state levels.” 2011 looks to be a monumental year for InkHead, and its new partnership with the National Guard is just the beginning.
