[OMG Product Team] Q3 2022 Features Recap

By Lauren Zimmermann on October 31, 2022


A new quarter means upcoming holidays to prepare for and…new features to celebrate!

We know you’ve been busy growing your business, so let us give you the rundown on what you need to know from Q3 and how these new features can help enhance your business.

What can you expect from Q3?

  • Maximum safety and security of your data and your customer’s data.
  • Speedy store-building tools to build better stores, faster.
  • Inventory, made easy so you can build stores with confidence.

Plus, with a couple more months left in the yearthere are still more powerful features coming your way to help you and your customers be successful like Bulk Artwork, Supplier Inventory Management, and Redemption Stores to name a few.

Now, let’s take a closer look at what you may have missed over the past few months.

SOC 2 Compliance

With everything else going on with your business, the security of your data is the last thing you need to worry about. In Q3, we successfully completed the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 audit, making OMG the first online store platform to achieve this certification in the promotional product and team sporting goods space.

What does this mean? Companies that achieve SOC 2 compliance undergo a rigorous technical audit by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), which certifies the company meets strict requirements around security, privacy, availability, and confidentiality of customer data. 

What does this mean for you? You can rest assured that when you’re selling branded merchandise online, your data and your customer data is secure and protected.

Store Templates

In Q3, we continued to add more top suppliers to our Supplier Template stores! As inventory and supply chain issues continue to be a challenge for promotional product distributors, apparel decorators, and team dealers throughout 2022 – Store Templates can be a great way to help you navigate those pesky inventory issues smarter and more effectively. 

As a refresher, the following template options are available to you:

  • Supplier Templates: Pre-built template stores stocked with supplier-recommended, high-inventory products that allow you to build stores with more confidence.
    • Reduce out-of-stock and backorder scenarios
    • Quickly launch new stores without starting from scratch
    • Customize each store with your customers’ branding

Choose store templates from suppliers like SanMar, Under Armour, Founder Sport Group, Gill Athletics, Champro, Pennant Sportswear, Augusta Sportswear Brands, alphabroder, and much more. Plus, we’ll continue to add more top suppliers and brands to this list!

  • Your Templates: Turn popular stores into ready-to-use templates for your entire team. Create, edit, and archive store templates from your template library, saving valuable time in the store building process.
    • Quickly launch new stores without starting from scratch
    • Ensure consistency across stores, products, and pricing
    • Create a library of demo stores to win new business

Year-Round Deposits

To help you run your business with more ease and flexibility, we’ve recently released Year-Round Deposits. This means, Owners and Accountants can customize a deposit schedule for their year-round stores that fits the needs of their business.

Benefits of using Year-Round Deposits include:

  • Ability to run Single Store Deposits on year-round stores
  • Eliminate the need for complicated workarounds
  • Run your business with more ease and flexibility

As a reminder, the Deposits page is only accessible by Owners and Accountants.

Store Layouts

This just in: Premium Layouts drive more GMV per store than Standard Layouts.

You heard that right. OMG clients see 26% higher sales and 15% more orders when using the Advanced Branding package, compared to not using the package on their storefronts. 

Store Layouts allows users to select from three unique layout options, each containing powerful branding and revenue-driving elements that help you:

  • Create custom, retail-like experiences without the technical expertise
  • Drive sales by promoting different products, bundles, and categories
  • Increase branding flexibility, like the option to create landing pages

Product Data & Live Inventory Feeds

When done correctly, monitoring inventory levels can help boost revenue and control costs while fulfilling customer needs. OMG Live Inventory feeds are directly integrated with brands and suppliers, helping you stay up-to-date on product levels within the OMG platform. 

  • Eliminate steps in the store building process
  • Prevent backorders and out-of-stock scenarios
  • Ensure positive customer experiences

In Q3, OMG added product data and Live Inventory feeds for brands like Pro Towels, Storm Creek, and Raining Rose and added product data for HPG, Pennant, J. Charles, Webb Collection, Wilson, Logo Mats, and Lane Seven – so you can add products to your store in a snap!
