As a small business owner, you know how to make every dollar count. But have you considered the cost-saving benefits of adding kitting to your small business’s strategy? If you’re in the business of manufacturing and selling products, kitting can save your business valuable time and money. Here’s a look at the many reasons to use kitting to stretch your small business budget.
Standardize your shipping
Kitting involves packaging products into units that are ready-to-ship and usually include either items that are frequently purchased together or parts of a product to be fully assembled by the customer. These ready-to-ship packages each use the same materials and weigh the same amount, giving business owners a better estimate of shipping costs.
Reduce assembly costs
Kitting also allows business owners to save on assembly costs, since kitted products are fully assembled by the end user and not the manufacturer. By eliminating this extra step, you can save money and time on assembly work and focus on other core competencies of your business.
Move more product in less time
In some instances, kitting can help your business move products quickly, freeing up more warehouse space and preventing lost or damaged inventory. For example, some companies package similar items or products that are frequently purchased together into a bundle that is sold as one unit. By bundling products into pre-packaged kits, you can sell more products while offering your customers an easier shopping experience.
