GiftsOnTime.com launches future gifting platform
GiftsOnTime.com, an innovative Appreciation Management platform for professional service providers, announced the official launch of its web-based service, which enables users to select and schedule client gifts - celebrating any occasion - to be delivered throughout the year.
The online model introduces a new concept in web-based gifting by enabling "future gifting," and empowering professional service providers with a time efficient tool to build positive relationships with clients, contacts, and staff members.
"Traditional marketing tactics like newsletters and e-mail blasts have simply become white noise to clients," said GiftsOnTime CEO & Founder Ron Orleans. "Our new platform offers professional service providers a way to stand out from the crowd by delivering personalized gifts that deepen bonds with existing clients, and generate priceless word-of-mouth marketing."
The former Managing Partner and Marketing Director of a large CPA firm, Ron Orleans developed GiftsOnTime with a view to create a turnkey marketing tool for busy professionals that improves client retention and, ultimately grows their practice. GiftsOnTime.com is free to join, and the easy-to-use online platform allows for client data to be imported directly from a variety of contact databases, including Microsoft's Outlook and Excel, CCH's ProFX Tax, Intuit's Lacerte, and the ProSeries' Tax Program, among others. Users can then set budget controls and select from a wide range of gifts to be delivered on any client occasion throughout the year, such as birthdays, business anniversaries, or over the holiday season. The time efficient tool requires approximately one hour's time to schedule gifts for the entire year, empowering professional service providers with the ultimate level of client appreciation management.
GiftsOnTime.com can also be utilized as a turnkey platform for employee appreciation management programs since the application allows HR professionals to more effectively manage employee anniversaries and staff birthdays in significantly shorter periods of time. Showing appreciation for employees with thoughtful gifts can assist in creating a positive work environment and in cultivating and retaining a more loyal staff, particularly in an economic climate where raises and bonuses may not be possible.
In celebration of the site launch, GiftsOnTime.com will be featuring a "Win Apple Gear On Us" Promotion, offering twenty-one (21) total prizes that include ten (10) iPod Touches, ten (10) iPod Nanos, and one (1) grand prize of an iPad WiFi + 3G. Anyone who creates a new individual or company account between November 15th, 2010, at 12:00am EST and April 10th, 2011, at 11:59pm EST will be automatically entered into the promotion, and winners will be randomly selected each Monday, starting on November 22, 2010.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
