It’s big. It’s better. It’s here

We’ve launched the new generation of our revolutionary CO3 online ordering platform: version 2.0 is now here! It comes with all of the benefits of its predecessor, but with sparkling new features – taking your promotional merchandise procurement and marketing campaigns to the next level.

What is CO3?

If you’re not yet using CO3, it’s our bespoke built online ordering system that removes all the pain, administration, and hidden costs out of ordering branded merchandise and clothing (and any third party products). All CO3 systems are built in-house by our digital experts and are available to all our clients.

CO3 2.0 is ready – are you?

It’s been months in the making, with plenty of hard work n’ elbow grease, so we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that the new version of our online ordering platform, CO3, is here – and it’s better than ever!

Designed to offer both new and existing clients an even better online ordering experience, it combines all of the great features you came to expect from the first release of CO3, but with additional features and benefits to provide you with a more streamlined user experience for better end results.

That’s the good news. But what’s the great news?

All existing customers will be upgraded to the new CO3 2.0 at no cost. A free upgrade. Yes, really! It’ll take some time to migrate everyone’s existing sites onto our new platform, so we appreciate your patience at this exciting time. While you’re waiting, check out what CO3 2.0 has to offer…


We love innovation. Not just because we enjoy the latest tech, but because innovation creates prosperity for your business. It’s also essential to stay ahead of the changing landscape of digital technology and follow best practice – what’s new today in web will soon be out of date, so it’s important that CO3 is a robust web platform that moves with technological advancements.

It means that we can grow with our clients, by offering constantly evolving tools to make the web experience more fulfilling for you and your customers: “The future of purchasing is online, so we want to offer the best system possible – we’re investing heavily in this system to provide amazing, effective solutions. CO3 2.0 is a reflection of true innovation – we’re the only company in our sector to provide a truly bespoke online ordering system for our clients” says our marketing manager Hannah who goes on to say that this is “just the beginning” of what you can expect from this flexible system.
