Kitting (aka Bundling) is a very powerful feature for inventory management. You can connect products in multiple ways to keep everything in sync. Below, are a few examples that you can use to see how kitting can work for you.

Example 1

Let’s say you are selling toys. You have three products – Superman, Batman, and Ironman figurines. You want to bundle these products in a kit to sell as a package. This package is called Superhero Trio and it is comprised of one of each of the figurines.

To begin, you will have:

  • 10 Supermen
  • 10 Batmen
  • 10 Iron Men

Therefore, you will have 10 Superhero Trios.

When kits are created in Ordoro and you ship one of the Superhero Trios, your inventory will deduct one from Superman, Batman, and Ironman.

Example 2

This is similar to example 1 but you have different quantities involved.  For every one Superhero kit bought, your inventory will reduce by 3 Supermen, 2 Batmen, and 6 Iron Men.  This scenario may also be created in Ordoro.

To begin, you will have:

  • 18 Supermen
  • 18 Batmen
  • 18 Iron Men

Therefore, you will have 3 Superhero Trios.  The number of kits available is determined by the lowest quantity available.  Since you have 18 of all of the products, and it requires 6 Iron Men to create the kit, the most kits you can create is 3.

18 Iron Men / 6 per kit = 3 kits total

Example 3

For this case, you are selling flour.  You have a set quantity of 50 lbs of flour and you sell different sized bags of it.

To begin, since you have 50 lbs of flour, you will have the following available to sell:

  • 50 of the 1 lb bags OR
  • 10 of the 5 lb bags OR
  • 5 of the 10 lb bags

If someone purchases a 10 lb bag, then you have 40 lbs left.  With the kitting function, Ordoro would make the following adjustments to your inventory.

  • 40 of the 1 lb bags OR
  • 8 of the 5 lb bags OR
  • 4 of the 10 lb bags
