Wearer Packs

Wearer Packs

Wearer Packs

We provide a comprehensive and streamlined wearer-pack service which eliminates hassle and offers a swift and efficient process for managing all of your workwear requirements. The service makes it simple to receive your order as an individual wearer pack, with your employee’s name labelled on it. For those of our customers with large teams, this is an ideal option to streamline the process and reduce unnecessary administration.

Benefits of Wearer-pack:

  • There is no limit to the number of wearer-packs we can despatch.
  • The service is fully automated and managed through our proven and tested workwear management system, providing an end-to-end process which maximises efficiency and accuracy, from initial order through to production and despatch.
  • Orders are simple, placed on our online integrated MY-SMI system. It takes just four days to get set up; all we need is a spreadsheet with staff names and locations, and we will do the rest!
  • Wearer-pack Express supports different grades for staff, against which you can allocate different products, to automate ordering even further.
Account Management

Account Management

Account Management

We provide you with unrivalled Account Management, which ensures each of our customer's benefits from a knowledgeable, informed and highly responsive service. A large part of this is our Forecasting service, which ensures all aspects of your contract are monitored and reviewed to proactively anticipate your needs and trends on your account. We have a dedicated team of Analysts responsible for contract monitoring and applying this insight into demand to our supply chain. As a result, we are able to promptly flex resources to ensure we always have the materials and capacity to meet every order effectively, to the right timescales.

Our Forecast Analysts work closely with Account Managers for each contract, to provide insight into behaviours and trends. They accommodate details such as planned client rollouts, to maximise coordination across the supply chain, and inform our stock management. The combined work of Analysts and Account Managers also serves to generate data which enables us to recommend efficiencies for each of our clients, based on demand, uptake, and purchasing trends.

"We have used SMI exclusively for the past 3 years, and changing to a single source supplier rather than multiple providers proved to be a great decision. The MY SMI online platform has helped us improve the PPE provision across the business and we are very happy with the way this has been tailored to our needs.  All employees are listed under their appropriate depots / departments and site managers can only order pre-approved items on their account.  This helps us ensure the correct PPE is ordered across all sites without having to monitor closely. The vast product range is excellent and particularly impressed with the quality of SMI’s own brand – Rokwear, also great value for money!  Products are always delivered on time and the support services have always been there to assist when needed."
