The second Monday in January is National Clean Off Your Desk Day. This year it fell on January 10th. This day was created to prepare your workspace for the new year and begin things on the right note with clutter-free desks.
There are so many benefits to a clean and organized desk whether it’s on National Clean Off Your Desk Day or another day!
It’s hard to focus while dealing with clutter. Studies have even shown dealing with clutter or derangement can cause stress, can drain you of time and energy.
From the onset of a brand licensing program, there can be a lot of disorganization when hundreds or thousands of contracts, product approvals, and royalties are involved.
One of the easiest ways to get rid of derangement and ease stress is to find digital processes that help you track and automate. Digital solutions not only reduce paperwork but automatically track key milestones, deadlines, approved art assets, and more; whether you’re dealing with a handful of SKUs to thousands of SKUs.
Not all digital solutions are created equal. It’s important to research and find a digital solution that truly addresses your needs.
For example, time is of the essence for Edgewell Personal Care, a leading global consumer products company with a huge portfolio of brands including Schick®, Skintimate®, Playtex®, Hawaiian Tropic®, and Wet Ones®.
With so many properties and many approvals, inboxes were quickly getting clogged with notifications for pending approvals. By using a digital approval system with a customizable approval workflow module decluttered their processes.
It made creative processes move more smoothly and greatly reduced the time filtering through an abundance of email notifications. In addition, it allowed all parties–brand owner, licensing agent, and licensee–to be on the same page at the same time.

For Feld Entertainment, a world leader in live family entertainment, one of their main goals in switching to a digital process was to speed up the time it took to approve products. That goal was swiftly achieved, and the use of a proper digital system quickly became beneficial to the whole company.
Pulling up items like contract terms became fast and easy. According to Jeff Bialosky of Feld Entertainment, “mentally, it improved the organization of the department and provided much more transparency internally and externally.”
