Kitting & Packaging
DataForce provides professional package assembly for all of your survey and assessment projects. Our dedicated in-house kitting team ensures that even your most complex builds are managed with spot-on accuracy.
Common kitting projects include:
We can pack multiple items to spec – including class header sheets, surveys, assessments, and administrator instructions – making it easier for you to distribute materials on-site and keep materials together when they are returned.
Interviewer Field Kits
These kits can contain 5 or 50 items depending on the work being done in the field. A kit could consist of the following items along with sub-kits within the primary kit – incuding pens, stamps, note cards, brochures, receipts, door hangers, letters and more.
Projects often have many different kits and sub-kits. As materials become available, DataForce monitors the inventory application. Once all materials are available for any kit, a work order is submitted to operations for the quantity required. Only the inventory needed for the quantity required is pulled. The initial kits will be built, and we will take either a video or pictures to give an exploded view of the kit for your approval. Only upon your approval will operators will be given a packing list and sample to complete the buildout.
Warehousing & Distribution
DataForce provides secured storage for your paper-based documents in our fully-equipped 15,000 sf warehouse. Whether your project requires staged mailings or simply extra stock for future use, your sensitive materials will be safely stored and strictly monitored. Only authorized personnel are allowed into the areas of operation. Unauthorized personnel are required to sign in/out and must be accompanied by an authorized escort.
From rewards cards to gift cheques, promotional items to charitable donations, DataForce can manage your entire incentive fulfillment program to help you reach target response rates of up to 40%+ Our gift card options are the most complete in the industry.
