Uniform Sourcing 101 - How to make this daunting task seem effortless

  • Nov 9, 2017

If you're tasked with purchasing clothing and uniforms for your department or organization then chances are you've done some deep digging on this subject. Along with your regular duties it can be a daunting task we know. 

Uniform sourcing is "out of this world" with countless one-stop shop, great selection, great customer service, great delivery claims.

But the reality is some of the most popular brands in the market today come with delivery challenges. What really stood out for us representing other lines was having our hands completely tied, making us the sales reps who cannot back the promises and guarantees. Well not anymore! 

Not always what it's cracked up to be

Harsh reality for some, have you ever received uniforms that sometimes fit but other times don't? We know for a fact we put down for a 34" inseam and a 36" waist just to hear the firefighter received "flood pants". 

What about that time when the fly in your pants broke or the zipper in your coat got stuck and you couldn't stay done up on that blistery cold day?

Has there ever been a time where you ordered in May and were told delivery will be June yet it's September and the shipment still has not arrived? 

Have you ever been so fed up you just want to return the whole lot and start again? Heard this a few times when selling other brands, but that's not the case anymore!
