Know the advantages of using a Uniform Management System, a tool that controls the value chain and simplifies your routine
Uniform management can be a real headache for companies.
Usually it involves tracking several emails and sheets daily, from employees and suppliers, about purchases, sizes, deliveries, returns and inventory. It is a handful and sometimes frustrating job.
However, these complex processes can be turned into simple tasks if you use a good UMS (Uniform Management System).
An UMS automates and unifies every stage of uniform management, such as manufacturing, fitting, ordering, logistics, and customer service. This way, the system allows you to handle these tasks in an organized and simplified manner.
SKYPRO provides an UMS with algorithms to predict the optimal order point. “Optimal” here stands for forecasting the exact garments, sizes, quantities and the best delivery date.

Advantages of a Uniform Management System
The goal of a Uniform Management System is to facilitate the process of managing uniforms, so that companies can focus more on the main purpose of their business and the needs of their customers and employees.
When we talk about managing uniforms, employee satisfaction means fewer issues to deal with daily, both for the worker and the uniform manager. For this to happen, it includes providing good quality items that guarantee comfort and safety, while transmitting the company’s values.
In fact, employee satisfaction in this scenario actually starts on the journey of ordering a new uniform, which needs to be easy and free of errors that will delay its usage. For that, an UMS is essential.
The system will remove unnecessary steps from the ordering journey and allow your employees to request their uniforms by themselves, according to the items that they are entitled to and according to their right sizes.
The worker can even schedule their own fitting session and garment delivery by themselves, in a few clicks. Much simpler, right?
Time and Cost Efficiency
Besides employee satisfaction, a good UMS brings cost and time efficiency.
For a uniform manager, controlling the value chain can be overwhelming and lead to risks of errors and losses. If you use an UMS, you will have a self-service platform that will:
- easily connect you to suppliers,
- handle and limit orders,
- manage deliveries and returns,
- keep up with numbers and stocks, every step in real time.
All of this via a SaaS platform that can be accessed anywhere, and that demands minimal interference.
An Uniform Management System automates processes and takes what could be a liability out of your hands. It’s the best way to save time and avoid extra expenses.
One of the most innovative Uniform Management Systems in the market is mySKYPRO Portal, which works with smart algorithms to forecast uniform demands.
“To develop mySKYPRO, we gathered over 15 years of market research, purchase histories, browsing data, social network analytics, customer surveys, and other reports. That huge understanding of the pains and needs of a uniform manager results in a much better online shopping experience and prediction capability”, as explained by Jorge Pinto, CEO at SKYPRO.

Uniforms catalog for an informed decision
mySKYPRO provides an informed experience about the uniform details and lifespan.
Working as a catalog based on sizes and kits that the professional is entitled to, the system informs the exact date of renewal and the durability of each product. Like this, you and the employee will know exactly when a new order is needed.
mySKYPRO provides you with a fitting center section, by which the employees can schedule their try-on at an appropriate time at their own company.
At the fitting session, the tailor carries out the work of finding the best match for each worker, so that everything arrives in the perfect size. Since it is a complete controlled process, size errors when reordering the entitlement are significantly reduced.
Uniform delivery at employees’ home
Logistics is another area where a mySKYPRO can facilitate Uniform Management routines, because it can also be controlled entirely via the software.
Employees receive their order ready-to-use at the company or, depending on the corporate policy, even on their doorstep.
Demand prediction through algorithms
Stock control is an important part of managing uniforms. With mySKYPRO, the system not only takes care of the inventory control in real-time but also goes beyond. By using smart algorithms, it can predict the right items, sizes and quantities that your employees will actually need when they order a new set of garments.
This technology empowers companies with an agile way of reducing costs by optimizing stock, with no excess or size errors.
