Effective sampling is essential to driving chemical sales. However, the hidden costs and inefficiencies of in-house sampling could be having a negative effect on the growth and profitability of many businesses. The points below outline the key issues to consider when comparing in-house versus outsourced sampling:
It is also often the case where sampling is part of someone’s job and as a result, may detract from their core role within the organisation, therefore it is likely that sampling will not get the priority it deserves.
Managing sample stocks effectively is crucial in minimising waste. In-house sampling can often result in part containers which are redundant for sale, compromised product quality and products lying around which are past their shelf life and require disposal. SampleRite works closely with clients to ensure stocks are managed closely, taking into consideration the needs of your business.
Sample stocks and packaging can be transferred to SampleRite, which can free up additional warehouse and laboratory space for your core business.
Turnaround time is critical to sampling success. Over 60% of sample end-users surveyed said that the first sample they receive "often or always" has an advantage over those arriving later. And 70% said suppliers have lost sales opportunities because of late or incorrect sample shipments. Our proven programs speed turnaround and eliminate mistakes. We also improve sales communications with e-mail notices, follow-ups and on-line shipment data to help you make the sale.
By outsourcing, you can eliminate the cost of FDA, DOT, ADR, IATA, EPA, OSHA, chemical handling, respirator use and waste training for your employees.
Incorrect packaging, labelling or documentation of chemical samples can lead to transportation fines - potentially thousands of dollars or euros per violation. We eliminate that risk, and are experts at safely shipping both hazardous and non-hazardous materials.
Are you missing additional revenue opportunities that come in small packages? In addition to packaging and fulfilling your sample orders, we can sell your small package products and non-strategic samples, boosting your bottom line.
