Zenoti allows you to combine one or more products with varying quantities and create a kit. These kits can be sold as a single product or consumed for services. 

For example, you can combine 2 bottles of Lavender Hair Oil, 2 bottles of Rose Hair Serum, and 1 bottle of Green Tea Shampoo as one product kit and sell it to your guests.  

Or, if your vendor delivers nail polish remover always with the nail polish as a kit, to have individual products for consumption on the floor, you must receive them as kits.

How do product kits help your business?

Your business can experience the following benefits using the product kits: 

Retail

  • Get rid of the dead stock by combining it with one of the popular products and selling them to your guests.
  • Increase your sales by combining newly launched products and encourage your guests to try them (which they might ignore otherwise).

You can sell such product kits on special occasions such as Mother’s day, Valentine’s day, the center’s service anniversary, or during any discount campaigns at your center. 

Consumable

  • Receive product kits from vendors for consumption on floor.
  • Provide services by consuming high-quality products that come at a lesser price as kits.
  • Combine and transfer products to other centers.

Product Bundles in Zenoti

To create a product bundle in Zenoti:

  1. Create a product (retail or consumable) with a product kit name and specify details such as, the centers where the kit must be available, its price, and availability in the Webstore. For example, let’s say you wish to offer a Valentine's day kit to your guests. You must create a retail product with the name Valentines Day Kit.Or, you want to transfer nail polish of different colors to another center as a kit. You can must create a consumable product kit with the name Nail Polish Set and do so. 
  2. Associate the desired number of products and quantities with the kit using Setup Product Kit.For example, let’s say the Valentine's Day Kit that you have created in step-1, must have 1 Olive Oil Body Scrub, 1 Green Tea Body Wash, and 1 Peach Body Butter bundled together.  So, you must associate these products and quantities with the Valentine's Day Kit product kit.

    In case of Nail Polish Set, you want to bundle 1 Teal nail polish and 1 Red nail polish. Associate these products and the quantities with the Nail Polish Set product kit.
  3. Update stock in Inventory (at the center level) for the kits through Purchase Orders, Transfer Orders, or by bundling the existing stock

Actions you can perform on product bundles in Inventory

After you create the product kits, you can perform the following actions just like you would perform for any other product:

  • Sell the product kits through POS or transfer them to other centers.
  • Raise purchase orders and transfer orders to procure the product kits.When you order a product kit through purchase order or transfer order, your vendor supplies the kits directly.Example: Let us say that you have 2 Anti-Aging cream and 2 Body Butter boxes combined as Mother’s Day product kit. You realize that you are short of 5 Mother’s Day product kits. Therefore, you raise a purchase order to procure them from your vendor.Your vendor will deliver a total of 20 products (10 Anti-Aging and 10 Body Butter boxes) to your store. In case of the Nail Polish Set, you notice that you have nail polish bottles of Teal and Red are left out even at the end of the month as these colors are not popular in your center.  You can bundle these bottles and transfer your consumable stock to the center where these colors are a hit.

Now that you have the products in your store, you can start bundling the products to create the product kits.

Bundling the products on your store or floor 

You can bundle the products in your store or floor to sell them as product kits to your guests or transfer them to other centers. 

Retail Example: Let us say that Valentine’s Day is approaching and you have 15 Mango Face scrubs and 10 Coffee Face Packs that are slow moving stock in your store.

You want to sell these products, so that you can bring fresh stock. Therefore, you create 10 Valentine’s Day product kits by combining 1 Mango Face scrub and 1 Coffee Face Pack in each kit. You also offer discount on these product kits for easy and quick sales. 

Now, you can sell these product kits to your guests through POS as part of Valentine's Day special sale. 

Consumable Example: In the nail polish stock, you notice that there are 20 bottles of Teal and 10 bottles of Red nail polish in excess. These are not hit in your center. You can combine 1 Teal nail polish and 2 Red nail polish in each kit and transfer it to another center.

How does bundling impact current stock?

Bundling impacts the current stock quantity of store or floor, based on where you select the products from.

If you bundle the products that are existing in store, the current stock quantity (in store) of the individual product decreases and the quantity of the product kit increases. The same applies to the products existing in floor.

Retail

Consider the retail example mentioned in the Bundling the products on your store or floor section to create 10 Valentine’s Day kits. 

Following are the stock quantities before bundling the products:

  • Mango Face scrub = 15
  • Coffee Face Pack = 10
  • Valentine’s Day product bundle = 0

Following are the stock quantities after bundling the products:

  • Mango Face scrub = 5
  • Coffee Face Pack = 0
  • Valentine’s Day product bundle = 10

Consumable
Consider the consumable example mentioned in the Bundling the products on your store or floor section to create 10 Nail Polish sets. 

Following are the stock quantities before bundling the products:

  • Teal Nail Polish = 20
  • Red Nail Polish = 10
  • Nail Polish Set bundle = 0

Following are the stock quantities after bundling the products:

  • Teal Nail Polish = 0
  • Red Nail Polish = 0
  • Nail Polish Set bundle = 10

Unbundling the product kits on your store or floor

You can unbundle the product bundles in your store or floor and sell them as individual retail products to your guests or consume them for services.

Retail Example: You have 5 Valentine’s Day product kits on floor with 1 Mango Face scrub and 1 Coffee Face Pack as products in the kit. 

A guest wants to purchase a Mango Face Scrub, but you do not have it as an individual retail product on your store or floor. To make your guest happy, you decide to unbundle one of the Valentine’s Day product kits.

Following are the stock quantities before unbundling the products:

  • Mango Face scrub = 0
  • Coffee Face Pack = 0
  • Valentine’s Day product bundle = 5

After you unbundle it, you will now have 1 Mango Face scrub and 1 Coffee Face Pack as individual products on floor. You can then sell it to your guest.

Following are the stock quantities after unbundling the products:

  • Mango Face scrub = 1
  • Coffee Face Pack = 1
  • Valentine’s Day product bundle = 4

Consumable Example: You have received the Nail Polish kits that has 1 Nail Polish and 1 Nail Polish Remover. In order to have them at service stations, you have to unbundle the kit and consume them. 

Following are the stock quantities before unbundling the product kits:

  • Nail Polish = 0
  • Nail Polish Remover = 0
  • Nail Polish Kit = 5

After you unbundle one kit, you have 1 Nail Polish and 1 Nail Polish Remover on floor.

Following are the stock quantities after unbundling the product kits:

  • Nail Polish = 5
  • Nail Polish Remover = 5
  • Nail Polish Kit = 0

How does unbundling impact the current stock?

Unbundling impacts the current stock quantity of store or floor, based on where you select the products from.

If you unbundle the products in store, the current stock quantity (in store) of the individual product increases and the quantity of the product kit decreases. The same applies to the products existing in floor.

In case your company decides to unbundle automatically when the kits are received through purchase order or transfer order, the current stock will be impacted. This is an organization level Admin setting. See Auto Unbundle Product Kits on Delivery for more details.

Tips to consider while creating retail product kits

  • Bundle the high profit margin products and low profit margin products together so that you can give better discounts to your guests. 
  • Refer the Top Sellers - Sales Report in Admin and observe the products that your guests are purchasing together. Create kits for those products. 
  • Apply discounts on bundles and make sure that the actual price of each product in the bundle is visible. This makes your guest perceive that they are buying the kit at best price.
  • Identify the products that go together naturally and bundle them for cross-selling. For example, you can create a bundle for Tea Tree Hair Oil and Tea Tree Shampoo.
  • Do not keep the size and price of the kit too high, as guest may not purchase it.
  • Check the inventory stock levels before bundling to avoid sudden low stock levels.
