You may already know about kitting – the process of assembling and packaging products into ready-to-ship kits. But what is the real value of kitting, and how can it save your small business money and time? Here are three ways kitting brings value to your small business.
Save on shipping costs with kitting services
Kitting helps small business owners save on shipping costs by pre-assembling similar products into ready-to-ship units. Kitting takes the guesswork out of packaging, since every package uses the same materials and has an identical weight. Sellers using kitting services can even utilize customized packaging to take up less space and reduce shipping fees.
Kitting makes assembly more efficient
Kitting services can also streamline your business’s operations. This is because similar products are pre-packaged into single units in bulk rather using the pack-to-ship method. Packaging kits into single units in advance can reduce order errors and save efficiency in your operations process.
Kitting can improve customer satisfaction
Selling items in pre-packaged kits can save your business money, enabling you to pass those savings to your customers. For example, you can offer three similar or complementary products at a discounted rate when purchased together in a kit. By sharing your cost savings with your customers, you can improve customer satisfaction and build loyalty for years to come.
Overall, kitting services can help your business save money, save time, and maintain better relationships with customers.
