If you are responsible for your company’s corporate gifting, you must be familiar with the process because it’s the same every year, every quarter, or every month: go onto a website, search for gifts, order gifts, and send them to your employees or clients. Of course, this is the short version of the story. There are so many other things that you must pay attention to.

You may think the process is simple and there is nothing that can be confusing. But there are actually a lot of challenges. Many HR managers or Total Rewards may even say that corporate gifting is the most difficult task they have ever encountered. Here are 4 challenges that most people face when executing a corporate gifting campaign:

  1. Lack of Impact: Every time after gifts are delivered they don’t see any impact, sometimes even negative reviews. \n
  2. Time-consuming: The whole process takes a lot of time, especially when they are trying to personalize gifts for all of their recipients.
  3. Untraceable ROIs: Most of the time they don’t know if gifting made a difference, they have no idea what to track to make the campaign scalable.
  4. Shipping: It is very hard for them to ship all the gifts to every single recipient without running into problems.

As corporate gifting has existed for decades, it seems like it has developed a way that it should be done. The most common way you’ll see is by sending corporate swag such as T-shirts and logoed mugs. Corporate swags are not entirely a bad idea, you can see great results if you do it right. Check out our article: Corporate Swag Gifts: How to Prepare for Your Swag Gifting Campaign from Start to Finish?

But if you are thinking about personalized gifts, is there a better way?

In this article, we will go over how can Giftpack help resolve the challenges mentioned above and everything you need to know about Giftpack’s new Slack integration to make your corporate gifting simpler.


What Is Giftpack and How It Works?

Giftpack is an AI-powered gifting solution that aims to simplify the corporate gifting process and amplifies the impact of personalized gifts at scale.

With our extensive experience in gifting, we are able to craft memorable touchpoints by sending personalized gifts selected from a curated pool of 3.2 million products. The AI technology efficiently analyzes each recipient's social media, cultural background, and digital footprint, without breaking the law, to customize gift options at scale.

Giftpack’s mission: "To change the way of gifting and create stronger bonds by personalizing all gifting for every single recipient with AI technology."

How does it work? Giftpack is an all-in-one service that has many powerful features yet super simple to navigate and control. There are really only 3 things that you need to do using Giftpack:

  1. Import recipients’ email addresses
  2. Set budget
  3. Start the AI gifting campaign

Everything else is taken care of by us, including collecting shipping addresses, picking gift options, sending gifts, tracking data, and much more. Take a look at Giftpack’s “How it Works'' Page to get more details.

Overall, Giftpack takes care of everything you need for your corporate gifting campaigns, from generating, ordering, shipping (worldwide), and tracking gifts to CRM and Dashboard for monitoring process and scaling results.


Giftpack’s New Feature: Slack Integration

Using Giftpack and Slack together will be a great way to stay on top of all your Giftpack engagement and tracking information. For more information on using Giftpack and Slack, read our privacy policy.

Why Slack Integration and what does it do?

First of all, corporate gifting requires a lot of internal communication. Throughout the whole process, you will need to discuss the budget, review the gifts, check delivery, share the results, and talk about the feedback and reviews.

Secondly, with 10 million daily users, Slack is no doubt one of the most powerful and convenient internal business communication tools in the world. A report shows that there are more than 600,000 organizations using Slack! So, we know a lot of our clients or future clients love Slack.

To stick to our mission of making corporate gifting as simple as possible, we believe the integration with Slack will help our client in many little things. For example, if you wish to know your remaining credits, rather than logging in on your Giftpack account, you can simply type in “/giftpack-credits” in any channel on Slack. And it will tell you how many credits you still have. This is especially useful when you don’t have a laptop or computer with you, a mobile phone will work just fine!

There are many other commands and more in the making! There is a list of commands for you, scroll down to take a look at it.

List of useful commands

  • /giftpack-credits: this command allows you to see your remaining credits in all the workplaces that are connected with Slack. Red means no more credits, yellow means under $250USD, Green means equal to or more than $250USD.
  • /giftpack-recipients { email | first name | phone }: you can type in either the recipient’s email address, first name, or phone number to get his/her full profile. The profile includes the recipient's full name, email address, profile link, order link, as well as the status of the recipient as a giftee.
  • /giftpack-workspaces: this command shows you all your available workplaces.
  • /giftpack-help: this command gives you the full directory of commands.

There are currently not many commands, but the idea is to make it as simple as possible for anyone using it.

What can I do with Giftpack’s Slack Integration?

You can use the Slack integration to make monitoring your gifting campaign even easier! You will also save more time on getting the information you may need as a reminder for your gifting budget by using simple commands. Check out the list of commands above.

What do I need to do before I install the Integration?
