Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) September 30, 2004
Creative Expressions of Tampa Bay, Inc. has announced a new online platform for businesses to manage employee incentive programs and personalized corporate gifts. In addition to the traditional method of producing a printed Rewards & Recognition catalog, companies can access a fully automated Website complete with custom logos, messages and gift selection capability. Creative Expressions offers this service through http://www.CorporateGiftShowcase.com. This specialty online catalog includes a broad price range of gifts, personal accessories, crystal, and electronics.
ÂThe beauty of this technology is that it can be launched from our clientsÂ existing web site, without any work on the part of their own IT team,Â explains Duayne Furgason, Vice President of Creative Expressions. The program can be used for sales promotions as well, further enhancing the participating companyÂs web presence.
Creative Expressions has several clients (such as Marquette Hotels, IMRI, and Cresco Equipment Co.) whoÂve successfully used the system. Companies can direct employees to a private website that tracks reward points and allows them to select their own gifts. ÂOur Internet based Rewards & Recognition service can be mixed with traditional catalogs for anyone who might not have access to the web, so no one is left out of the program,Â Furgason further explains.
According to a report by the Incentive Federation, US businesses spend more than $25 billion annually on gifts, awards, and promotional items. Research shows that tangible incentives are more motivating, over the long term, than cash. Unlike cash, which comes to be thought of as salary or bonus and not a thing to show off or discuss with colleagues, an award is a source of pride and something to be displayed.
Since 1995, Creative Expressions of Tampa Bay, Inc. has helped hundreds of companies across the United States use gifts to increase employee productivity and client sales. Both of Creative Expressions online and traditional Rewards & Recognition programs and catalogs can be found at http://www.CorporateGiftShowcase.com
