Have you ever been shopping for a new piece of furniture and read “Assembly Required” on the product box that you want? Most people don’t jump up and down with joy when they see those dreaded words. Many people don’t like assembling anything because it takes up a lot of time and can involve a large number of pieces with confusing instructions. Why should you have to spend so much time assembling something that you spent so much money towards purchasing? Consumers are spending money on something and want the product to be assembled and ready to go.
Your organization is no different. There are times you may invest in a product, only to have to spend precious time getting it assembled before sending it off to your members. When it comes to marketing materials, you can choose to go with a kitting service that allows you to purchase the products you want without having to assemble and ship the materials on your own.
What is a Kitting Service?
A kitting service is a streamlined process that allows you to create a complete kit of all the products you want to send together. Allowing a kitting service to complete your kit from beginning to end also allows for the kit to appear neat and organized. Choosing a kitting facility to support your marketing materials helps avoid wasted time at your organization and save money.
Kitting Service Processes
Finding a place to store marketing content for your clients can be a challenging task. When you choose to use a kitting service, they will store the materials for you. Using a kitting service’s warehouse frees up your space and allows the kitting company to keep your materials on site and ready to be assembled when needed.
Your organization can save a lot of space by opting to use a kitting service’s warehouse space over your organizations working space.
Once an assembly is needed, the kitting team will pull all the necessary products and compile them into kits. The kits can be assembled ahead of time or on-demand, whichever is needed for your organization.
By choosing a kitting service to assemble your kits, you are saving time and labor by guaranteeing the right materials are always easy to reach and ready to be sorted together when the time calls.
After the content is assembled, the kitting service can ship the kits for you. Most of the time, companies that provide kitting services can get the best shipping rates available, whuch helps save your organization money too.
Benefits of Using a Kitting Service
Choosing a kitting service has a lot of benefits. One of the significant benefits is that kitting services are highly reliable. Kitting businesses are highly organized and efficient. They can keep materials organized and can quickly gather what they need to assemble the kits. After assembly, kitting employees can arrange a delivery. Since a kitting service handles much of the work for you, they take a lot of weight off your shoulders. Your organization can focus on other aspects of your operation while allowing the kitting service to handle all assembling and delivery of your kits.
The delivery times are short too. Kitting companies have relationships with mailing companies. So, not only are they able to get great rates, but they have short delivery periods too.
