Key Features of the Custom Website:
Personalised Messages: The platform allows department heads to include personalised messages inside the gifts, adding a thoughtful touch to each one.
Cost Code Integration: At the checkout, department heads can add their department's specific cost code. This integration streamlines the accounting process, making it more manageable for the company and easier for managers to place orders.
Efficient Order Processing and Delivery: Upon receiving orders through the custom website, Colleague Box ensures that gifts are dispatched within 24-48 hours. The gifts are delivered to individual home addresses or workplaces, ensuring a seamless and timely delivery process.
