How to Improve Cost Efficiency with Hemming on Demand

Dealers, Distributors, sales reps, and wholesalers of workwear products know that proper alteration and hemming of clothing and gear for first responders, military, and others who need protection from fire and heat must be made with materials that have the same performance characteristics as the original fabric and sewing thread. Not only is this essential to maintain the flame-resistance, but gear that is pre-cut and pre-hemmed is costly to stock and impacts order quantities, shelf inventory costs, and shelf profitability. So, workwear brands using iVendix are providing dealers with ready-to-hem pants as a form of customer-centric allocation that more precisely matches supply to demand.

Workwear brands on iVendix are combatting wrong-size returns and seeking to improve profitability for their dealers by implementing a customized iVendix interface that allows their B2B admin to set up customer-centric hemming rules for their pants. These workwear products are costly to produce. The fabric is expensive. The hemming requires performance metrics. And for a dealer to carry and display all of the possible width and length combinations can be prohibitive.

In general, dealers want to get the most from their shelf space, so they tend to order smaller quantities and fewer cases of products. On the other hand, suppliers and distributors know that dealing with larger quantities can result in overall lower shipping costs. Implementing hemming on demand brings profitability back into this equation. Dealers can continue to order smaller quantities and once a customer orders an SKU, they can then add the appropriate hemming detail to the order, where the brand can move it off the line, trim it, hem it, and box it with any existing or upcoming shipment.

Based on an exploration and definition of business rules, our iVendix client services team helps brands realize the benefits of value added hemming on demand, as a means to improve cost efficiency for suppliers and distributors. If you’d like more information on how your brand can use hemming on demand as a value added service to your dealers and distributors, please contact us. We’re happy to share the many benefits of iVendix for Wholesale B2B.
