Product rationing is an important element to business, so how do you regulate how much product to use on clients? Here are a couple tips on increasing product value for your dollar.
Buying in Bulk
Buying in bulk is one of the easiest ways to save on product costs. Take a careful evaluation of what products you use and what sizes the manufacturing companies offer them in. If larger options are available, and you are replacing this product at a consistent rate, then go big. It will be a more expensive initial purchase but you’ll end up saving in the long run.
Serving Trays for Products
When you are performing a service, think about using serving trays to regulate how much product is being used. This works especially well if you are buying products in bulk. Take a scrub for example. Instead of squeezing it out of a tube or taking it out of a small container in front of the customer, scoop it out from the large bulk-size container in the back and put it into a nice serving tray. This way you can keep track of how much each tech is using for a service, and the serving trays look more professional to clients.
