Get Ready for Seasonal Demands with Outsourcing

Most manufacturers and retailers experience a rise in seasonal demand as the holidays approach. But much like 2020, 2021 is expected to be a highly unusual holiday season. Due to ongoing global supply chain issues complicated by the pandemic, many aspects of the manufacturing, production, and delivery process are taking much longer than normal. At the same time, there’s an industry-wide labor shortage causing frustration and delays. Still, thousands of consumers are eager to shop and spend during the holidays. The “perfect storm” is coming — is your business ready?

When you need additional resources to meet seasonal demands, consider the many benefits of outsourcing. Here’s how partnering with an outsourcing provider can help your business keep up this holiday season:

Access a large pool of skilled workers

Outsourcing key tasks such as assembly, kitting, packaging, and fulfillment allows your company to bring in extra workers on an as-needed basis, like during the holiday rush. For example, at Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Industrial Services Division, we have a team of skilled workers who are motivated and eager to work on projects of any size and scope. When you outsource, there’s no need to waste time and resources on recruiting, hiring, and training new employees, which can be even more challenging during the ongoing labor shortage. You can focus on core business processes while your outsourcing provider takes care of the rest!

Save on space and equipment

Another good reason to partner with an outsourcing company during the holiday season is to take advantage of their in-house resources. Instead of investing in extra warehouse space or new equipment, you can bring your assembly, kitting, packaging, or fulfillment projects directly to the outsourcing provider. Because seasonal demands are just that — seasonal —  outsourcing is the most flexible option for the ebb and flow of your business. When you need extra help, you can bring in your outsourcing provider. When things slow down again, you can release them and tackle projects on your own. It’s that easy!

Get more done in less time

Ultimately, the biggest benefit of outsourcing is that you can get more done in less time. Instead of worrying about falling behind on orders and managing overtime, you can focus on the most important aspects of running your business — things like customer service, employee satisfaction, and new opportunities. Give your team the gift of extra time and less stress this holiday season by partnering with a reliable outsourcing provider.
