How Promotional Company iPromo Changed Their Business Plan to Help in the Age of Coronavirus

Posted by on April 10, 2020 in Business with 0 Comments

The number of coronavirus cases across the United States continues to rise, and with its increase, so too does our collective anxiety. While many of us our hunkered down in our homes to obey shelter-in-place orders and flatten the curve of this terrible disease, healthcare workers, essential businesses, and government employees must head out each day to help keep our world spinning. Unfortunately, they’re doing so without the protecting equipment they need.

Luckily, businesses are coming out in droves to help answer the call for these necessary supplies in this trying time.
One such company is the subject of our spotlight today: iPromo. This promotional product company is based in Chicago, Illinois, and traditionally sells branded gifts and promotional items.

In the light of the Coronavirus pandemic, this company has completely shifted gears, taking their business’s strategy in an entirely new–and entirely necessary– direction.

Filling a Need

Healthcare workers, government agencies, and other essential service businesses are finding it near impossible to secure personal protective equipment (PPE). As citizens and greedy resellers have snatched up these essential supplies, individuals who still need to leave their home to get to work are left to go without.

iPromo saw that need and used their longstanding relationships with trusted suppliers around the globe to source these hard-to-find but lifesaving items. To make that happen, CEO Leo Friedman spent long nights speaking with overseas suppliers to secure much-needed supplies and offer them at fair prices to those who so desperately need to find them.

An Entirely New Line of Products: iHealth

iPromo’s entire supply chain shifted from promotional products to certified Coronavirus supplies. All of these are available in bulk on their website, funneled into a new category called iHealth.

Their PPE supplies include essentials that can be purchased in large quantities, such as mini hand sanitizers in bulk, face masks, and isolation gowns.

In addition to the above, they offer an array of other medical necessities that can help business owners protect their employees during these unprecedented times.

Business with Heart: Honesty and Transparency

iPromo’s team is very aware of the fact that business owners are trying hard to protect their employees, and CEO Leo Friedman is working tirelessly to ensure those buyers are able to secure the personal protective equipment they need as soon as possible.
“They’re not ordering for themselves; they’re ordering for their employees or coworkers who do not have masks – they’re in a stressful place,” says Friedman. “Our job is to diminish the unknown and make sure the products are delivered on time.”

The company is committed to making sure products arrive as quickly as possible, and the most significant obstacle for anyone trying to secure PPE is shipping. As the global pandemic has affected air travel, shipping costs have risen. Despite this, iPromo is committed to avoiding price-gouging and strives to be as transparent as possible on their site. When purchasing, you can see shipping options and exactly how the pricing breaks down, depending on your shipping preference.

To further help in the fight against Coronavirus, the company also offers special, discounted pricing to healthcare providers to ensure those who need it most can access this gear.

Key Takeaways

Essential business owners, government workers, and healthcare providers are in need, and businesses like iPromo are proving that we can come together in these difficult times. If someone you know is in need of life-saving PPE, check out this company’s available supplies to help aid in the fight.

Consider patronizing businesses that are keeping our world revolving and think about the difference we all might be able to make in this time of hardship.
