What is Kitting & Assembly?
Kitting and Assembly Services cover a lot of ground. “Kitting” refers to grouping products together that match what a customer might want or to encourage them to try something new. If you have an amazing best-selling supplement flavor, you can take advantage of its popularity by packaging it with branded merch to increase brand awareness.
“Kits” can be physically pre-built (i.e. the two units or “SKUs” are put together into one package, which then has a unique SKU). Or, they can be digitally built (i.e. the “kit” containing two unique products or SKUs is created as unique SKU on your e-commerce store and when an order is placed for that “kit” or SKU our team member is instructed by our software to pick and pack both SKUs that make-up the the “kit” (or master SKU).
Why Use Kitting & Assembly Services?
Taking advantage of our Dollar Fulfillment Kitting and Assembly Services means that your business suddenly got a lot more flexible. You’re not just selling to the occasionally-interested customer who may want to try out your brand. You’re developing a following by delivering custom-made products specifically for individual consumption. There are several salient reasons to take advantage of our Kitting and Assembly Solutions.
Kitting can cut down on distribution costs and save on warehouse space – Think of it like e-commerce carpooling! Sometimes, certain items just don’t sell well and start to take up space that you want for newer or more reliable products. By kitting a higher-selling item with a lower-selling item, you’re able to even out costs and clear out space. And, while you are reducing costs and increasing availability, you’re also creating opportunities for your clients and customers to encounter a greater range of your inventory.
Many savvy clients of Dollar Fulfillment frequently build kits that include high margin, but slower moving SKUs, thus increasing their gross margins and overall brand profitability.
Power to the People
Kitting also delivers a greater sense of power to the consumer in the form of customization. Customers who save on shipping and receive a discount on grouped items feel empowered when they receive exactly the arrangement of items they wanted, and at a seemingly discounted rate.
A Commitment to Accuracy
Accuracy in the kitting process is crucial, as nobody wants to receive a package full of stuff they didn’t ask for and certainly don’t want to go through the hassle of returning it either. With kitting and assembly volume, Dollar Fulfillment has built processes to ensure accuracy in the kitting process.
Dollar Fulfillment light assembly services include a range of options to streamline distribution. The bottom line of light assembly results in sending less packages to your customers, saving on shipping costs, while also increasing the protection of your product.
These personal touches on special-order products help to build your brand and are a great way to add extra value to your customer. As we would already have your items on hand in our warehouse, going the extra-mile to create custom content for your customers makes perfect sense to us.
