VNN & rSchoolToday announced a partnership with a leading disruptor in custom apparel software and fulfillment services, SquadLocker, late last year. In the short months since the partnership’s creation, schools around the Network have been thrilled with what SquadLocker brings to the table.
There are plenty of reasons why a school or team may want to utilize SquadLocker’s platform, including enabling fundraising on your storefront for effortless payouts whenever you want. Tip told us the top three reasons why an AD, coach, or youth leader would benefit using their platform.
1. Department Store Setup. “Competitors that are out there come in and handle one thing.” Tip told us. “What does the football program need? What does the basketball program need? But then there are so many more clubs and organizations that have to [handle apparel] on their own, or they’ve never been able to do it. So how do I include an AD, or anyone who is involved with a club or activity, to get things that are theirs. Not just the school logo, but their school logo with their club, name, or number on it. That stuff is important, that stuff is number one for us.”
2. Complete Brand Control. In his years of experience working with youth leaders, Tip explained, “They do not want to have the brand incorrect.” At some point in handling apparel, every AD, coach, or team admin has dealt with incorrect logos or variations to your brand. “We don’t just guess at the logo,” Tip continued. “We take your logos, these are the logos you are selecting. It’s not generic.”
3. No Inventory Management. “So many people get stuck or trapped with boxes or stuff they can’t sell.” That scenario may sound all too familiar. “Every school has that storage unit or basement that just has tons of apparel sitting around; that risk goes away with us. [Instead], that inventory is sitting in our warehouse and going out one unit at a time.”
From now through February 15, 2022, SquadLocker is offering ADs, coaches, and other youth leaders in the VNN & rSchoolToday Networks 15% off their first order when they set up a storefront with code “SLWELCOME15”. Get started setting up your team’s or school’s storefront here.
