Partnering with SKU2U...it is important to note my selection of the word PARTNER...that is what this relationship is...not a traditional Vendor/Supplier/Customer relationship. Partnership can also have a loose meaning...and TRUST is an earned aspect. SKU2U exudes TRUST and thus after 2 years of working with SKU2U I can say that Partnership is not a word that neither we, nor SKU2U takes lightly, in fact they are a TRUSTED PARTNER and they envelope the concept!
When we first started working with SKU2U we were shipping 6-8 packages a week and we are now up to about 95+ a week. They have been a bedrock partner that has given us support that has enabled us to move to the Next Level within our business operations...and surprisingly the amount of support, time, energy, & effort they have provided even from the beginning has been so much more than I ever would have anticipated. In fact initially I was asking them how they could personally support our operations with such care and concern and still view our relationship as profitable.
SKU2U has not only helped us streamline our operations and save hard costs...but the soft costs associated with getting orders correct and done properly on the front end has provided significant labor cost savings that are hard to substantiate in a true Return On Investment (ROI) formula. If anything they have INVESTED more in us through time, service, and dedication, than we have in dollars. Complaint calls per order have dropped to a negligible less than 1.7% from north of 5.5% while shipments have increased 1,200+%. At the end of the day SKU2U acts similar to insurance...I sleep well at night resting assured the job at hand is not only taken care of...but that I can emphatically TRUST the responses and attitudes they will take to improve the customer experience.
They have helped us extend our operations internationally and provided a wealth of knowledge while passing on their suppliers price breaks to us providing a symbiotic relationship of shared economies of scale. SKU2U is more in lines with a business consultancy for Logistics, Shipping, Technology etc........... From soup to nuts we have utilized the breadth of services they offer to include technology services. As we continue to scale and capitalize on growth opportunities, it is great to know we have a trusted partner that can take us there. To include technology and website development and implementation of best practices. They even have a call center staff that can handle calls for the rapid scalable growth they help nurture.
As a small business they are a vital leg for our future growth. I find myself often writing emails of thanks, and in short I even coined a phrase that instead of telling the team at SKU2U they ROCK, or YOU ROCK, I simply remind them "U-SKU"! For support and services that "SKU", rest assured you will find yourself confident in the selection of SKU2U, and that they embody the definition of TRUSTED PARTNER!
