How to be a Procurement Rock Star

Combine trendy apparel options with supply chain efficiency

Do you sometimes feel like an unappreciated roadie? You deal with the pressure and stress of ensuring your band of coworkers performs at their best. If you don’t, the show doesn’t go on — at least not as efficiently as it should. Isn’t it time you got some applause of your own?

Here’s one area where you can shine: apparel. Offer employees the latest trends in workplace apparel and clothing gift items from an intuitive website that delivers an Amazon-like experience.

Give ‘Em What They Want

Your first objective is the highest quality at the best value. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have style, too. Ensure you’re working with a partner who can offer you apparel options ranging from T-shirts and hats to button-down shirts and jackets that reflect today’s top trends.

1. Wear It on the Weekend

Make sure your employees love their apparel so much, they enjoy wearing it anytime, not just at work. Finding the perfect clothing for your apparel or gift programs will extend the reach of your brand. Give recipients attire with a weekend vibe they’ll want to wear everywhere.

2. Shades of Ombré

Derived from the French ombrer, ombré means to shade or shadow. This technique gradually adds color from light to dark on hard surfaces and fabrics, lending a fresh, modern look to traditional apparel items. It can be applied to a range of styles from simple and subtle to bold and dramatic.

3. Decked Out Decorations

Looking to add a wow factor to your collection? Decoration methods can elevate your brand and accentuate your logo and marketing message. New trends include gel, glitter, molded metallic, HD silicone and flock transfers, mixed media, and simulated stitching.

Make Ordering Easy  

With a more contemporary clothing catalog, all you need now is a complementary company store. Look for a vendor who can offer flexible functionality for different user types and robust reporting analytics. Once you pair trendy apparel with the right ordering site, you’ll be a supply chain superstar.
